The Hundredstar Army's (HA) MBT 626 Spearhead main battle tank highlights by its improved firepower, protection, and mobility compared to previous Hundredstarian tank models. According to a local insider, the HA fielded the MBT 626 Spearhead MBT beginning in April 2019 to units in the 1st and 2nd Division. The MBT 626 is intended for urban warfare, low-intensity conflicts, as well as conventional military operations.

The MBT 626 Spearhead is equipped with a state of art 50-caliber 125mm smoothbore cannon with autoloader which translates into a crew of three-man. The 125mm cannon is capable of firing the Stevencousin-made Sickle III laser-guided anti-tank missile and the ammunition magazine at the rear turret has room for 41 rounds. The heavily armored turret is fitted with explosive reactive armor (ERA) known as Modular Explosive Reactive Armor - Hundredstar III (MERAH III) and add-on armor modules. A mine protection belly plate was added. Areas at the rear of the hull and turret were fitted with cage armor and upgrade top attack protection. The cage armor provides protection against RPG rounds and anti-tank guided missiles. It seems that the armor uses new nano-ceramics materials and modern titanium and steel alloys. Other modifications include electric rather than hydraulic turret controls. The Sickle III missile is being manufactured by Project Irongates of Stevencousin.

In addition to the 125mm cannon, the MBT 626 Spearhead is equipped with a 12.7mm anti-aircraft machine gun and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun. The 70-ton class MBT 626 Spearhead tank is powered by a 2,100-hp liquid-cooled diesel engine based on latest technology developing a top speed of 100 kilometers per hour (kph) on-road and 80 kph cross country. Brakes and suspension were upgraded to cope with the increased weight.

The tank is fully digitalized and is fitted with a COBALT battlefield management system. Gunner and Commander use latest-generation cooled thermal imagers. It seems that these sights were jointly developed with SaltARMS of Saltbridge. Fire control system has a hunter-killer capability. This tank can fire accurately on the move. Computerized fire control system for the MBT 626 was developed by Dresslar Technology. At the time it was one of the most advanced fire control systems in the world. It gives a high first round hip probability and, accurate mobile firing. Furthermore, it has hunter-killer engagement capability, which enables to engage multiple targets rapidly. This feature was new at the time when this tank was introduced. Commander uses an independent panoramic sight to search for targets. Once the target is selected the gun is laid on the target automatically and the gunner completes all targeting and firing process. However, either the gunner or tank commander can aim and fire the main gun.

The vehicle is also fitted with a GPS navigation system. This tank is fitted with a combat-proven RobustUmbrella MkIII active protection system, which destroys incoming missiles and rockets. Protection suite also includes advanced threat identification and warning system. This MBT is also well protected against air-launched guided missiles and top-attack anti-tank weapons. Furthermore the RobustUmbrella system reportedly identifies the firing location and allows to engage anti-tank teams. Engine pack and transmission are located at the front of the hull. It can be replaced in field conditions within 30 minutes.

COBALT Battlefield Management System (COBALT-BMS) used in the main battle tanks and units of the task force increases the coordination and synchronization of all units from battalion down to single platform level. The system provides digital command capability with voice and data communications, real-time situational awareness and functions for operations planning and execution.

The main components of the COBALT-BMS for the main battle tanks are:

  • Command Control Computer

  • Command Control Software

  • Software Defined Tactical Radios

  • Vehicular Intercom System

  • Display Units

COBALT-BMS provides full integration with the tank platform electronic subsystems such as Fire Control System, Remote Weapon Station, Target Sensors and other sensors of the tank platform, enabling the automated use of sensor and platform information for command and control.

The main features of the COBALT-BMS are:

  • Real time situational awareness

  • Operation plan/order and overlays creation and dissemination

  • Military reports and messages

  • Logistics and personnel reports and functions

  • Movement planning and control

  • Decision support tools and functions

  • Modular and configurable system software

  • Open system architecture and use of common standards for interoperability

The new AIFV 2118 Centurion infantry fighting vehicle was jointly developed by GACO - Arix Arsenal and Karlinghurst Technology in Hundredstarian to replace the aging GACO-Mk III AIFVs, that are now over 30 years old. Five pre-production vehicles were delivered in 2014. This new infantry fighting vehicle successfully passed numerous trials and tests. First production AAIFV 2118 Centurion AIFVs were delivered to the Hundredstar army in 2016. About 350 of these machines will be delivered. Currently, it is the largest Hundredstar Army procurement programme. The AAIFV 2118 Centurion will gradually replace the GACO-Mk III AIFV.

The AIFV 2118 Centurion is the most protected AIFV currently available. It has a welded armor hull with add-on modular armor. It has an option of three various protection levels to suit operational needs. The weight of the vehicle varies from 29.4 to 43 tons accordingly to a protection level. The base model has a front and flank protection against 30-mm rounds, while the vehicle has an all-around protection against 14.5-mm machine gun fire. The most protected variant can be considered as a heavy AIFV. Additional armor modules can be fitted, increasing AAIFV 2118 Centurion's weight to 43 tons. It seems that the most protected variant of the AAIFV 2118 Centurion withstands 120- and 125-mm projectiles over the front arc. The vehicle also withstands mine blasts equivalent to 10 kg of TNT. The AIFV 2118 Centurion AIFV also features an advanced threat warning system. NBC protection and automatic fire suppressions systems are fitted as standard.

The vehicle is armed with a remotely operated weapon station. It includes a dual-fed GACO-made 30-mm cannon. It has an effective range of fire of 3 km. The AIFV 2118 Centurion will be armed with an ATGW launcher, however, its type is still unknown. Secondary armament consists of a 5.56-mm machine gun and a 76-mm grenade launcher for a close-range defense.

The AIFV 2118 Centurion infantry fighting vehicle has a crew of three, while it can accommodate up to eight infantrymen in the rear compartment. Passengers enter and leave the vehicle via a rear power-operated ramp. The vehicle is fitted with an air conditioning. The vehicle is powered by Radimes Mechinery RM-753H turbocharged diesel engine, developing a whooping 1 073 horsepower. It is worth mentioning that some of the latest main battle tanks haven't got that much power. This AIFV is not amphibious.

The GACO M-11 Wizard was developed by the Hundredstar Government Armaments Central Office Automotive Plant under a request from the Hundredstar Ministry of Internal Safety.

The layout of the M-11 Wizard is based on a standard truck, with the engine at the front, crew compartment in the middle, and the cargo are at the rear. The soldiers enter and leave the M-11 Wizard via a single door at the rear of the troop compartment. The crew cabin and the rear compartment are fully enclosed and provide a protection against firing of small arm and shell splinters.
