|— In-game description|
The Devitt Mark III is armed with a 40mm cannon and has a single inventory slot where ammunition stacks. It has space for a crew of 3, including a driver, gunnner, and commander. The driver is the only person who is able to view the fuel level, while the gunner loads and fires the cannon. The commander is able to view the battlefield and provide much needed information by using Binoculars from the Commander's Hatch, while also being able to fire Secondary Weapons. The command is also able to close the hatch to provide safety from projectiles and explosions.
It is roughly based on the French "Renault" series of light tanks used during the early stages of World War 2.
The 40mm shell doesn't have a lot of penetrative power, as such when fighting enemy tanks you'll be forced to hit the sides or the rear and at close range to increase your chance to penetrate the armor.
Based on one of the first mechanized vehicles ever commissioned for war, The Devitt series of light tanks were a refinement and a repurposing built to adapt to changing battle conditions. To the north of River Mercy in Mooring County, a new design went into development shortly after the Breaching. With its enhanced resistance to ballistics and increased maneuverability for its crew, the Devitt allowed the Wardens to keep pace with the Colonials, who at the time were far more efficient.
Even with these advantages, the earliest models of the Devitt were masterful examples of care and craftsmanship. These armored vehicles may have been works of art, but they were very time-consuming and expensive to develop. The Mark III was designed to increase efficiency and lower production costs. During this time, the Wardens began recycling their decommissioned vehicles by melting them back down to raw materials. This updated design allowed for easier manufacturing and fitting of recycled parts; this meant more Devitts could be sent out to the field. Whether it's on the front line, protecting a convoy, or leading a border assault, the Devitt is a sturdy and reliable asset.
