The LV-20 Charlemagne is a command vehicle in use by the European Federation's Enforcer Corps.

Overview[]

The LV-20 can detect traps and stealth units, increase battlefi eld awareness, and deploy UAVs and sentry drones. A unique feature of the LV-20 is its armament. The Charlemagne is equipped with a tactical high energy laser (THEL) rather than conventional arms, and its drones are equipped with advanced directed-energy weapon systems. Many consider the LV-20 to be the most advanced wheeled vehicle ever created.[1]

Tech Commentary[]

The LV-20 Charlemagne allows European Enforcer Corps commanders to acquire and disseminate large amounts of battlefield data quickly and effectively. Its vast array of sensory equipment covers nearly every visible and invisible spectrum, from infrared to ultraviolet, and includes a complement of advanced audio sensors. This means that very few, if any, modern stealth units are able to go by undetected when an LV-20 is around.[2]

Instead of conventional armaments, the LV-20 is equipped with a tactical high-energy laser (THEL). Its power plant is the same electric engine that the AMZ-50 uses. It also has a high-capacity energy generator to power its THEL. Details on this generator are classified. All LV-20s have emergency gas-powered generators attached to the THEL for use when the primary power generator is disabled.[3]

The Charlemagne can deploy EFEC Archer sentry drones, which are equipped with the same Active Denial System and taser system used by Grenadiers. Its deployable UAV is an EFEC Eaglefly that has advanced optical systems for threat detection and is equipped with guided air-to-ground missiles. Proper use of the LV-20 can be a valuable asset when trying to achieve full-spectrum dominance over enemy forces.[4]

Trivia[]

  • The LV-20 chassis, the engine and cabin in particular, appear to be partially based on the Volvo A30D articulated haul truck. This is also why the front of the LV-20 shares a similar appearance to the Marksman, as the Marksman was based on the real Archer Artillery System, which utilised a military version of the A30D chassis.
  • Despite being technologically superior to the JSF and SGB counterparts, it is actually the worst of the three due to the Attack 1 upgrade drastically shortening the drones' attack range in exchange for more damage, thus reducing the effectiveness of combat. One of the best ways to use a CV's combat drones is to provide anti-air protection for Tanks and Artillery, but LV-20's Archers lose that strength with the THEL upgrade.
