Fist of Hyperion

The poorer the infantry, the more artillery it needs.

-General Koechlin-Schwartz

And my, aren't Karpoi the best cannon fodder around?

Squad Composition

  • Gunner
  • Loader

Sensory

Fist of Hyperion crews rely on their eyes and ears. The Spotter get a good spotter scope, the gun has a decent a panoramic periscopic indirect-fire sight, and of course, they accept fire mission calls on the radio.

Upgrades

Direct-fire Optics

Fits an auxiliary targeting telescope to the howitzer, allowing it to direct-fire against ground targets. Effective against structures and vehicles.

Armament

Denel G7 (1)

Directly purchased from Denel, the G7 howitzer is a long-range 105mm towed howitzer. Thanks to a 52-caliber barrel and base-bleed ammunition, the gun has an incredible range of 32km, outranging all 105mm guns and even several 155/2mm designs. It can dump shells filled with 2.5kg of HE accurately on targets more than 30km away.

Upgrades

105mm HESH

To counter buildings and light vehicles, the G7 can fire HESH rounds. Because the warhead flattens itself before it detonates, it can create massive spalling and effectively smash apart non-flexible materials (such as concrete). Effective when used as direct-fire ammunition.

Protection

Fist of Hyperion crews wear old US Army Universal Camouflage Pattern fatigues, and PASGT to protect them against shrapnel.

Upgrades

None.

Mobility

Although it only weighs 3,800kg, it is still pretty much unmovable by human power alone. Therefore, it commonly gets a Basilisk to tow it, its crew, and its ammunition around.

Upgrades

None.
