         With the Striker light tank, Valiant Vehicles set out to produce a tank design that would maximize the potential of a wheeled vehicle. Nearly all experts agree that Valiant succeeded admirably by ingeniously combining the low cost of a wheeled chassis with high quality weapons and electronics systems. The economical Striker attracted many budget-conscious buyers immediately, and after the design proved effective on the battlefield Valiant immediately began working on modifications to fix any errors and to upgrade it using technologies from the Helm Memory Core.


         By the time the Clans invaded, their new standard Striker included upgraded armor, a fusion engine, a more powerful LRM system, and more accurate Streak SRM launchers. This version worked well, but enemies knew that if they got in close they could cause heavy damage while taking little themselves. Then the Battle Magic mercenary unit designed and proliferated a new weapon for use against the Word of Blake.
         The new Multi Missile Launcher could fire all forms of missile ammunition, from dumb-fire rounds to ultra-high technology guided missiles. Valiant Systems of Robinson quickly duplicated the weapon system and planted two of the new Valiant Trebuchet systems on the Striker. Four tons of CASE-protected ammunition bays feed the two seven-tube launchers, allowing it to carry a large variety of missile loads.
         They left the design otherwise unchanged, keeping it swift and easy to maintain. The Valiant Systems that power it are proven by age and combat, and wide open spaces inside the tank make it easy for technicians or the vehicle crew to perform repairs, sometimes even while on the move.


         Valiant Vehicles sells the Striker to any planet or interplanetary organization part of the old Federated Suns. Their fusion engines make them able to operate on any world, and the ability to repair them without having to shut them down makes them valued on colder worlds where shutting down a vehicle in winter means it won't start up until spring. The Valiant Trebuchet's ability to fire torpedoes has made them a favorite of coastal regions, as they can easily send air-launched torps into nearby waterways. They are seen just about everywere in the Federation Expanse, used by planetary and interplanetary governments alike, and have even made a reputation for themselves in the Federated Suns Mercenary Corps. Becaue of that, they can also be seen wherever the FSMC goes.
