Maganacor Mobile Anti-Aircraft by JazzLizard Maganacor Mobile Anti-Aircraft by JazzLizard
The Maganacor Mobile Anti-Aircraft vehicle was developed to accompany Venrock forces into areas where enemy aircraft would be encountered. It is capable of engaging targets in the air and on the ground, armed with a twin AA "Four-Lob" autocannon turret, and a "Six-Lob" cannon turret borrowed from other vehicles in Maganacor production.

Vulpesant forces referred to the MAA as a "Stitchback", due to the welded-plates used to hold the over-track armor on.

The tank is robust, and heavily armored and armed enough to clash with Vulpesant medium and light tanks, and deal with infantry and mechanized threats with it load-out of anti-personnel rounds for both turrets. It is considerably lighter and faster than the MK-6, while not being much smaller. This vehicle saw action against Vuplesant forces throughout the later 3/4ths of the war, especially when the VP air force stepped up their game and began invading Venrock territory.

Venrock commanders enjoyed deploying the MAA as a mobile pillbox, digging them into locations around their bases and using them to saturate an area with fire while their forces advanced. The AA guns weren't especially suited for anti-armor purposes, but possessed unrivaled range and accuracy.

I know one good fictional example:

Take a look at the Orks from Warhammer 40K.

Their weapons look ramshackled and cobbled together.

Yeah, that's a Venrock tank, not a Vulpesant one.
