The Renhadnt I is a Chergarian tank which served during The Third Spat. It was designed as a more highly-mobile counterpart to the slower, heavier tanks of the time. It would go on to see limited service after The Spats, briefly serving in foreign armies during the Westenlands Wars, and most notably being supplied to Robanian Restorationist forces during the Lords' Uprising.
History[edit | edit source]
The Renhadnt I was developed by Aansen and Co. Motor Works shortly after the introduction of tanks in the Third Spat in 491PI, as a means of merging the mobility of an armored car with the breakthrough capabilities of a tank. In order to attack both fortified positions and defend against infantry, it featured a casemate-mounted 37mm cannon, as well as a machine gun turret on top. It was among the first tank designs to feature a 360-degree traversing turret, contributing to what would become common tank design doctrine.
The King's Own Tractors[edit | edit source]
During the Lords' Uprising, three Renhadnt I tanks were found by the Robanian Army in a barn outside Stamow, delivered by Chergaria in secret to aid the Restorationists. In an infamous exchange between them and investigators from Robania's Ministry of Defense, a number of Chergarian representatives offered varying responses. Aansen and Co. claimed that they were purchased outside Robania by a duke sided with the Restorationists. The minister of foreign affairs claimed that they had sent them to BN for study, going on to state that the Revisionists must have stolen them in-transit. The Chergarian military stated that they were not genuine, and must've been built from repurposed tractors. In response to the latter, the incident would be jokingly referred to as "The Incident of the King's Own Tractors" (Zdarnist Kranaski Traktora), and would contribute to factors resulting in the invasion of 524.
