The Bear-Cat is an incredibly robust heavy repulsor tank built by Trantek. The Bear-Cat is aerodynamically designed with a dorsal turret positioned towards the rear of the vehicle. The turret mounts a powerful X-10 heavy laser cannon, which is capable of bringing down some the heaviest opponents on today's modern battlefield. The Bear-Cat also has two forward firing lighter laser cannons which are used against smaller vehicles. The tank commander operates the turret, whilst the pilot operates the lighter lasers. The Bear-Cat has tough armour plating and a number of redundant operating systems, which allows it to shrug off most minor hits. Considering the amount of weight that the Bear-Cat carries, it is surprisingly fast and maneuverable. This is thanks to the powerful WH5 power plant and repulsor drive.

Many owners of the Bear-Cat believe that the high price tag is well worth the investment, due to its endurance. The Bear-Cat is mainly used by planetary defense forces, but a few have also been 'acquired' by the Alliance.

Notes: Due to the vehicle's sturdiness and redundant systems, if the Bear-Cat is lightly damaged there is no need to roll for the effect of that damage. Note that the tank still counts as lightly damaged. Should the tank become heavily damaged and it suffers a lightly damaged hit the tank will still become seriously damaged.
