The Sesks

The Sesks comes in two variants, the Sesks-95 and the Sesks-25. These designs are effectively identical with the exception of armament; the Sesks-95 has a 95 S 58-61 main gun modified for use in an enclosed turret, while the Sesks-25 has a 25mm Chaingun.

Weighing ~7 tons and standing only 1.54m high (Turret roof), the Sesks provides a light armor or recon solution to any army. Its top speed of 65 km/h, operational range of 400km, and a track width of 400mm (A whole 50mm more than the AMX 13!) means this vehicle has both the speed and mobility to ensure that it can go where it is needed. The Sesks-95 makes use of a compact autoloader, which fits entirely in the turret bustle.

 

40mm of frontal armor is capable of protecting against 25mm rounds, while the side armor will protect against small arms. The models shown include minor Anti-HEAT provisions and an active defense system, similar to the Russian ARENA system.

 

Both models of the Sesks cost $1,500,000, and are available for international order.

 

 

Tõll 305 SPSA

 

The Tõll (Toell) 305 SPSA is a modern adaptation of a classic idea: Bigger is Better! Named after the stone-throwing giant of Estonian legend, this self-propelled siege artillery boasts a 305mm heavy mortar. The standard HE shell is capable of creating a crater 8 meters wide and 8 meters deep, as well as killing exposed infantry up to 400 m (440 yd) away. The cannon has a range of ~17km.

Weighting ~70 tons, the Tõll is on the larger side, but its width has been carefully restricted to ensure it will fit on most bridges that can support its weight. A top speed of 30 km/h ensures it and its supply vehicles will be able to re-position quickly, or keep up with a modest advance. The Tõll is not sold individually; instead each purchase covers the cost of the SPSA, as well as two ammunition/fuel carriers and a crew APC all built on the same chassis. In total, a crew of 10 is required to operate the full unit. Armor of all vehicles is capable of protecting against small arms and shell fragments from most conventional artillery.

 

Each full unit comes at a cost of 10,000,000.

 

UG-50 "Barsukas"

The UG-50 "Barsukas" is a modern return to a some classic ideas: the assault gun and the tank destroyer. Partially inspired by the famous "S-tank," the UG-50 mounts a 128mm L50 gun, using a unique 4-round quick-fire auto-loader that moves with the gun. This allows the vehicle to temporarily fire faster than most contemporary auto-loaders, as the gun does not need to return to a neutral firing position.

With a low profile of 2 meters and a weight of 50 metric tons, the UG-50 offers a mobile and powerful alternative to armies looking for something cheaper and more defensive than a traditional tank. 1000mm of composite and steel protects the front of the vehicle, which when combined with gun-mounted sights, allow the UG-50 to serve incredibly well in a hull-down position. The UG-50 requires a crew of 4, consisting of a commander, gunner, loader, and driver, and carries 35 rounds. A  liquid-cooled V-12 Twin-Turbo 1500PS Diesel engine ensures a top-speed of ~80 km/h.

"The Kingdom of Axum is interested. What are the top speeds and range of these vehicles? We wish to consider them for reconnaissance and long range patrolling in Africa."

65 km/h, 400km. An export version of Africa, with air conditioning instead of a heater, would be easy to produce.

"What sort of endurance testing in desert climates has taken place?"

 

"Sadly, due to the climate of the Baltic Union, no such testing has occured. However, if the Sesks does not perform admirably in such a climate, Ubersteinia State Import Export will pay for any modifications needed to make them desert capable. Customer feedback is important to us."

Shipments would be sent to all interested parties as soon as money was wired into USIE's accounts. (I assume you fellows are paying for these. :P)

 

*Classified*

Shipments to Mogagishu, to avoid Swedish waters, would go by train to the Dnieper river. From there barges would carry it to the Black Sea, and the vehicles would be loaded onto ships in Odessa. Shipments to Cascadia would take a similar route. This would put a delay on the shipments, but keep forces in the Baltic from interfering.

Public Announcement

 

Our engineers have managed to fit a compact autoloader into the Sesks-95. A voluntary recall-and-refit has been issued for all units which have shipped, which will be paid for by Ubersteinia State Import Export. Manual reloading is of course still an option.

"The Plains Federation would like to inquire as to the possibility of outfitting a number of Sesks with L6 120mm and M40 105mm guns, and the additional possibility of outfitting the 90mm variant with a suitable autoloading system. If the above are possible, we would like to purchase 200 of each variant for patrol duties.

The Plains Federation is in luck, the Sesks-95 has just been outfitted with an autoloader. As for re-arming with larger caliber recoilless guns, it is possible but would require a slight refit and manufacturing cost rise per unit. The total price you would be looking at is: $910,000,000.
