Development[edit | edit source]
The Type-33 is a Self-propelled gun, designed for overwhelming enemy fortifications with massive firepower. It features the heaviest weapon used by any of Stalker Inc.'s vehicles; a 203mm Howitzer. The weapon proved to be too massive to be used on the existing Type-32 chassis, so a new one had to be designed. This new chassis was larger and heavier, powered by a 23.0L V12 Petrol engine. The contraption was so large that troops began to refer to it as the land-whale, partly due to the characteristic whine of its petrol engine. While performance of the machine was good, its practical applications on the battlefield were limited. Several Type-33's are still in use, but the lighter and more accurate Type-23 fulfils the role as main mobile artillery vehicle in Stalker Inc.'s private military force.
