Overview:
    Succeeding the massive, outdated Estevez as the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns main
    battle tank in the middle of the twenty-fifth century, the Tiger was designed to be lighter
    and faster than, yet still able to outgun, most of its rivals. After much testing, newcomers
    Veridian Dynamics of Torrence favored a conventional engine and a heavy autocannon to keep
    costs as low as possible. With its heavy engine and over a third of its total mass devoted
    to weapons, the Tiger's weak spot was the thin armor. Its six tons of standard armor were
    only a third of that of contemporaries such as the Marsden II, and barely enough to survive
    two heavy autocannon hits to the same location.
    
    Still its firepower, reliability and low price helped the Tiger become the new standard tank
    of the AFFS. Eventually production lines on other Davion worlds were opened to keep up with
    the demand, and in the 2480s it was licensed for production in the Lyran Commonwealth. By
    the early twenty-sixth century, the design had proliferated to every other nation of the
    Inner Sphere. Upon the foundation of the Star League the new SLDF inherited a number of
    Tigers, including from the former Hegemony Armed Forces. The Tiger began to show its age
    when the Reunification War began and had been relegated to second-line duty when the war
    ended. It remained in limited production far into the Succession Wars era.
    
    Following the release of the DCMS Schiltron, the AFFS under took its own Omnivehicle
    program.  Given the long proven durability of the chassis and effectiveness of the design,
    the T-12 Tiger was selected by the AFFS for renovation into the Siberian Tiger.  In addition
    to Omni technology, the design was upgraded to utilize a militarized fuel cell engine over
    the venerable internal combustion engine allowing the addition of 3 additional tons of
    armor, CASE ammunition storage, and the use of a pair of small pulse lasers along with the
    required cooling equipment in place of the Borman-A5C machine guns.  Designed with a turret
    that can support 15 tons of equipment and 18 tons of pod space, the Siberian Tiger has the
    flexibility to support a variety of front and second line main battle tanks and support
    vehicles.
