The APP-671 CAT Hog is the artillery terradyne of the Crayven Corporation. The artillery terradyne fires ballistic artillery grenades. It works best when used with forward observing scouts. The artillery is heavily armored yet extremely slow. It cannot target airborne units.

DescriptionEdit

The APP-671 HOG is a mobile artillery terradyne that fires ballistic artillery grenades. The HOG works best when used together with other units acting as forward observers, such as Jaegers or scout terradynes. The artillery unit can target the ground in order to suppress enemies or force them choose another route. Commanders must be careful when ordering an artillery strike as friendly units can be hit which can spell disaster during a combat mission. A crew of six soldiers mans the Hog, including the terradyne commander, making it the most crew demanding vehicles in the strike force.

The primary weapon of the HOG class artillery is a 155mm howitzer that with its fully automatic breech block and hydro-pneumatic recoil system allows a rate of fire of three rounds per second. It is very adept in taking out enemy buildings with its siege-like weapon. A unique cooling system consisting of five barrels rotate into place in order to avoid overheating problems during extreme combat situations. The heavy turret is extremely slow and it requires a few seconds to align its barrel to the designated target. It is hardly useful to fire the howitzer while moving.

The volatile warheads stored inside the HOG requires its heavy polysteel-20 armor plating to be extremely durable, but even with the powerful Zephrim SlugDrive its speed is limited to a slow crawl.
