The Rail Battalions
The Uvoanian Rail Battalions were established in the early 1910s, mere months after the end of the Civil War. Signed into existence, underneath the motto 'Frezka Railla' - Free Rails - the Rail Battalions have been a guiding force within Uvoan since they were first created.In the old days, they made do with old designs, styled off those from other countries, and rough-shod. They plodded around an underdeveloped rail-network, and were more for show than actual patrol.
Now? Now they are far more than just a patrol force...
All trains are required to make speeds of 145 KP/H, standard, with a maximum speed of 230 KP/H permitted. In terms of slow speeds, trains are expected to be capable of crawling along at 5-25 KP/H, and stopping within 2.4 kilometers, from full speed.
The City class of armored train is intended to be hidden inside tunnels, warehouses, old-rip tracks, and anywhere else you can stuff 15 cars worth of armored train. Why? Because these mobile trains, form one of the cores of uvoans 'responsive anti-air defense'.

The Hurricane class of armored train is a more conventional 'battle-line' train. Intended to provide fast, mobile, and very capable, fire support, it is parallel to most heavy cruisers in terms of sheer firepower.

The Spitfire is any infantry commanders worst nightmare. A roaming behemoth of a train, with far too many heavy machine guns, it can slice apart anything less than a tank that gets caught in it's line of fire.

The Horseman Super-Armored is more comparable to a battleship cut into sections, stuck onto wheels, and then given an engine to speed it along faster than it has any right to, than a conventional armored train. It rides on two tracks, which limits where it goes, yes, but the sheer level of firepower it can bring to where it can go? Often makes up for this factor. It can also transport nearly a full battalion of infantry, along with an armored divisions worth of tanks.
Besides this, it's the only armored train rated for speeds of over 350 KP/H, due to it's unique, and highly classified, engine setup.

The Horsemans main, 406MM gun is a marvel of engineering-
It's a 406MM, with three round 'clip' before a reload. The shell alone weighs 862 Kilograms. It has an explosive mass of 600 Kilograms of a High explosive, fine aluminum powder and ethylene oxide mix. This gun kicks each shell out at... About 7.34 Kilometers-per-second. That 600 KG mixture of TNT would result in about 3,066 kilograms of tnt (or, 3.066 Kilotons.) a single turret, of 3 guns, would be about 9.2 kilotons worth of explosive matter. A gun-car, of two turrets, 18.4 kilotons of explosive matter. All 6 guncars is 110.4 kilotons.
