IVT-10-Nokla by Norsehound IVT-10-Nokla by Norsehound
For every one terrorist group that came to the Callistonian negotiating table four more would rise up in arms, taking what they want and throwing the outer areas of Callistionian law into chaos. If for no other reason than to safeguard the citizens of the Jovian system, Callisto had to develop their own Axel.

The crash program of eight months resulted in two prototypes, the second of which was adopted as the IVT-10. The unit was designed from the ankles up to be a defensive unit as the paradigm was to protect the settlements and larger bases of Callisto, not chase down the bandits into space. The Nokla has low mobility for this reason but is mostly robust and easy to manufacture. Callistonian forces managed to get a supply of pre-production units deployed to the field to buy time for a proper development line to be secured.

Although the Nokla became outclassed by later designs that had more development time it was in constant supply for the duration of the first Jovian war. The design was also given to the Ganymede colonies as part of the defense pact between the two moons.


I had to re-write the history from scratch because for some reason this stupid st.ash thing lost my entire bio when I didn't know what was going on.

Seems very evocative of some kind of insect - a beetle, ant or grasshopper (or one of its ilk)?
