New OGRE designs that are cool

Only used three times against the Taiwan island, it proved effective in zooming past initial Taiwanese defenses and taking out two nuclear reactors and a minor forward command post.
This Mulan is one of the last cybertanks they installed strong armor.
As much of the Chinese Hegemony, portions of the ECM technology was stolen from the Combine factory. As with any copy of unproven technology, the copied ECM projectors proved unreliable and burned out only after a few uses. They, however, could not get more working properly but by then the China had larger problems than trying to hide a huge war machine.
The Nihon alliance began winning the war...
Chinese Strong Armor: Each hit-box represents a D1 tread subsystem that must be attacked individually. Instead of rolling at 1:1 odds on the CRT and inflicting an amount of damage equal to the attack, determine an attack's odds versus D1 and destroy a single tread on a result of X/XX. Ramming and falling damage is 2/3rds, round fractions normal. Strong Armor is distinquished in the system list by a "D1" instead of "TU" for tread unit.

Russian GEV OGRE used in the wastes of Siberia where mobility over smooth terrain is key. Due to the state developed ECM technology, it was used mainly for reconnaissance in the East against Nihon incursion. However, it rarely saw combat but when it did, the small forces it encountered saw nuclear fire before they saw it. For the three years it was fielded it served the Russian Soviets well. However, contact was lost with the cybertank in the year 2091.
The Nihon called it the ghost" of Kamchakka.

Always interesting to see new variants. I like to create a doctrine for an army and build Ogres based on that. The Chinese historically rely heavily on artillery so I make their Ogres have over sized batteries for their class and trade off other attributes.

You should check out the work FJCestero puts in!
Look up on the forums "All the world's OGREs".
You will not be dissapointed.
Email me if you want the collection (he gave them to me).

A prototype developed to chase OGRES and defend against cruise missiles. It also was designed to stay behind other OGRES and support them from the rear. Only a few were made and the design scrapped due to cost. One of the prototypes tested in the field ironically became the victim so some lucky cruise missile hits. The Paneuropeans invested eight to take this prototype out.
