Model 29 Medium Tank (Military Landcraft)

The Model 29 is produced by Pegasus Industries of Overnale for export to a variety of local markets. The Model 29 shares some components with the Model 28 APC, but the requirements imposed by the larger engine and heavier armor make this a separate system. Model 29s are typically found in company or smaller sized units engaged in a variety of security and counterinsurgency operations. The armor is sufficient to resist most man-portable antitank systems, which is usually all that is required for these sorts of operations. The vehicle is provided with a sealed environment system to permit operations in NBC conditions. One heavy machine gun is mounted on a pintle alongside the commanders hatch, and the other is mounted coaxially with the 10cm gun. The coax machine gun can be fired by the gunner (but not at the same time that the main gun is being fired). While an autoloader is installed, most tank crews using the Model 29 still carry a human loader for flexibility of operation.
