Skunk-Bear armoured cars are the main stay of Redroran Dragoon regiments. Armed with a standard Imperial auto-cannon the Skunk-Bear is able to engage both enemy infantry and light armour effectively. Battlefield experience however soon showed that the auto-cannon armed Skunk-Bears had problems when engaging heavy armour or swarms of light infantry. Redroran authorities petitioned a number of Adeptus Mechanicus delegations to provide a solution. In the end a delegation from the Forge world Dingas III, known to specialise in missile technology, provided the solution. Equipping the standard Skunk-Bear with a set of twin missile launchers and advanced targeting systems.
The new weapons system allowed the operator to pick either fragmentation missiles against light targets or krak missiles for engaging heavy armour. The missile launcher was pre-loaded with both missile types and a simple switch allowed the operator to choose the correct missile for any given target . The new Skunk-Bear variant was designated Close Support or CS for short. Made in small numbers and attached as a special Close support troop to each Dragoon squadron the Skunk Bear CS soon become a firm favorite with its crews. The Skunk-Bear CS squadron is rarely fielded on mass but attached in groups of one or two CS armoured cars to auto-cannon armed units.
So this is my second armoured car basically it is the same base model as my original Skunk-Bear Armoured Car. However I didn’t have another spare auto-cannon in my bits box so I used an old landspeeder Typhoon missile launchers I had lying about instead.
