Naruni 'Bardiche' Fast Attack Tank
The next step in Naruni's evolution of tanks is the Bardiche.
Using a new Contra Gravity system, the Bardiche is able to actually
fly above the ground rather than simply float above it.The system allows
faster speeds and more efficient power comsumption than the either
the Carnivore or Juggernaut hovertanks.
Another innovation in the Bardiche is the Quick Charge Force Field
generator which lets the pilot restore power to the builtin force field by
sapping power from the main Particle Beam Cannon. The computer limits the
use of this option,however, so that the tank is not left without any
offensive capability. Draining power from the main gun is possible
only twice per hour. 10 MDC is restored to the field per shot drained.
The maximum number of shots allowed to be drained is 20 per hour, for a
total of 200 MDC.
The Particle Beam cannon on the Bardiche is a lighter version
of the one mounted on the Juggernaut.

can be taken from the Particle Beam Cannon and rerouted to the Force
Field. Rate of recovery is 10 MDC per shot(200 MDC per hour aximum).
No more than 20 shots can be drained from the cannon per hour to insure
that the Bardiche is not left without its Main gun.
