The Gladius heavy battle tank is the armoured fist of the UCM, a large, resilient vehicle capable of taking on the toughest of opponents. It sports a pair of UM-100 'Avenger' railguns on a folding turret armature, giving it a similarly low profile and observation abilities to the Sabre. This makes the Gladius a deadly adversary on the open battlefield, where raw power takes precedence over agility.

The Gladius shares several dimensions with its smaller cousin, since its hull is an extension of the standard design. This allows for considerable commonality between all UCM tank designs, reducing cost and increasing ease of maintenance.

The power drain of its twin railguns requires a much larger power generator, and as such the Gladius is somewhat slower than the more nimble Sabre. However, it is still relatively lightweight for a tank of its size, facilitating carriage by dropship.

 The Scimitar Heavy Battle Tank

The Scimitar is a new heavy tank design currently undergoing its first combat trials. It is equipped with the experimental UMX-1 'Marksman' Battlefield Laser. Its long range killing power has lead to its hasty adoption by the UCMA, since a weapon able to circumvent active countermeasures was desperately needed. As such, the Scimitar fulfils the crucial role of tank destroyer, giving UCM forces the ability to strike at distant targets with impunity.

Using the Galdius-type hull, the Scimitar is also able to soak up considerable punishment. This gives it the ability to go toe-to-toe with the heaviest of its prey.

Although its time on the battlefield has so far been brief, reports from the front suggest the Scimitar has been well received. Despite reliability issues, its unique abilities have been highly prized by many commanders. However, the UMX-1's massive power drain precludes firing on the move. In addition to a fixed weapon mount, this makes the Scimitar unsuitable for close engagements.
