The Flamer equipped Type 1b medium tank was the first to see large scale use, even though it was developed after the standard Type 1 medium tank. The heavily fortified lines on Celzia proved very resistant to vehicle mounted weapons, the initial batch of Type 1 delivered to the front was stripped of its turret gun and replace with a field crafted heavy flamer, and additional applique armor. Unable to field service the power plant the extra weight significantly reduce the speed and range of these tanks. Nevertheless the additional armor allow these tank to approach opposing cannon bunkerd and engage them with its heavy flamer. Massed formations of Type 1b was crucial in the breakout phase of the Battle of Hilsik.

Armor: 51mm (6k)
Crew: 10

The first non psion vehicle developed by the Union The Type 52 Heavy Tank entered production just before the start of the civil war the high cost of each unit limited production and  was not deployed in large number until after the battle for Celiza. During the latter phase of Celzia campaign the heavy armor and powerful gun allow the Type 52 to dominate the field where ever they appeared, and gave the Union a mobile force capable of countering the Type 1 medium tanks used by the Concord and practically made the standard Type 1 outdated before it was used in actual combat.

Following the development and deployment of the successful Type 52 heavy tanks on Celiza, the Union Army tasked the Krowzari National Armory to provide them with a fast light tank capable of exploiting the breaches made in enemy lines by the Type 52. Weighing just under 6 tons the Type 53 was vulnerable even to concentrated small arms fire, but is speed and agility combined with high endurance allowed it to by pass strong points and hit softer targets.

AFV-03  Armored Fighting Vehicle, Tank Heavy Lindmet Machine Works

Specifications

Armaments: Four Kischel m57 Heavy Machine Guns, One Lindmet 04 75 mm Field Gun, One Lindmet 02 45 mm Tank Gun
Armor: 59mm (6k)
Crew: 10
Dimensions: L: 10.27m  W: 3m H: 4.09m
Weight: 69 tons (69,995 kg)
Powerplant: 2x KNA PSI-22d (887.2 kW)
Speed: Cruise: 24 kph

Shocked by the appearance of the Type 52 Heavy tanks in Celzia, Concord High Command order a new heavy tank from Lindmet Machine Works to counter this new threat. The result was the 69 tons heavy tank AFV-03 "Behemoth" Initial attempts to equip it with non psion power plant result in unacceptable loss of mobility, so 2 KNA PSI-22d was install instead the delay in this change meant that the first production unit rolled of the assembly line well after end of the Celzia campaign. The enormous cost per unit resulted in a production of mere 90 units formed into a single heavy tank battalion, was shattered during Operation "Dragon Slayer", few surviving examples are now on display at the Krowzari National Museum of Military History.
