The Destroyer Tank Hunter is equipped with a powerful laser weapon known as a Heavy Laser Destroyer which is more than capable of destroying most other armoured units in one hit. The main weapon is off-set to the left side of the vehicle giving it increased stability and making the overall size of the tank smaller and harder to target. This also allows both the tank's commander and gunner to use the weapon sights. The tank is built using the common Mars Alpha tank chassis, simply modified by removing the turret ring and replacing it with a crew hatch and two internal maintenance hatches. Due to the readily available spare parts for the tank, this allows salvaged wrecks to be repaired and retrofitted with other weapons whilst the unit awaits a replacement for the Heavy Laser Destroyer that may never come in their lifetime. The tank is able to be equipped with other wargear when needed such as Camouflage Netting, Extra Armour, a Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher, Improved Communications Equipment, a Mine Sweeper, a Pintle-mounted Heavy Stubber or Storm Bolter, Rough Terrain Modifications, a Searchlight, Track Guards and Smoke Launchers.
The Destroyer Tank Hunter is an excellent anti-armour vehicle capable of sniping enemy tanks from a distance and then moving to another location to repeat, although these tanks are not as useful during a direct assault or a close-range engagement due to their lack of a rotating turret and secondary weapons. The Destroyer Tank Hunter is best deployed out of the way of danger, near the rear of the unit so as to take advantage of its long-range accuracy.
