    With the recent revival of what was assumed to be antiquated aircraft designs like the Lyran
    Stuka dive bomber, conventional force crews have been taking ever-increasing losses due to
    the increased use of these conventional fighter craft.  Force commanders were forced to task
    more expensive aerofighters to fly CAP or to assign mech lances to escort armored companies.
    In response to this crisis, the Department of the Quartermaster of the AFFS announced the
    Armored Tank Anti-Aircraft (ATAA) program to develop a combat support vehicle specialized in
    anti-air escort.  The resulting chassis and trio of variants was designed for one sole
    purpose, to provide tank columns with air suppression.

    The ATAA program?s requirements consisted of three primary variables: aircraft detection,
    anti-air firepower, and mass producibility.  Bowie Industries managed to meet these program
    requirements by developing three vehicles all built on the same common chassis and engine.
    Though, lightly armored compared to MBT's the ATAA has enough protection to prevent easy
    destruction from a single strafing run.
    Designed around a four-vehicle lance, the ATAA is meant to be deployed as a complete support
    unit unless a vehicle is destroyed in combat.  Deployment doctrine places the ATAA on the
    inside of the outer edges of an armored force where it can quickly respond to enemy air
    assets while still being supplied cover from enemy ground fire.
    The major component of the ATAA?s success is that every lance is tied together via a C3
    computer allowing for the quick relay of firing data to their fellow units.  Functionally,
    no enemy air asset is farther than the closest member of the lance.  Resulting in anywhere
    from four to twelve units firing their guns at any incoming hostile aircraft.

    The ATAA-1-S mounts a pair of turret mounted Mydron Model RD 30 mm rotary autocannons; in
    addition, a 4-ton targeting computer enhances and further refines the firing data of the C3
    system. The combination of the two systems allows for an impressive amount of anti-aircraft
    shells rising to meet any aircraft that strays close enough to the unit?s firing envelope.
    The ATAA-1-LM mounts a pair of turret mounted Mydron Model D-RF 30mm ultra autocannons;
    similarly to the 1-S, a 4-ton targeting computer enhances and further refines the firing
    data of the C3 system.  The 1-LM unlike the 1-S mounts a C3 Master computer in addition to a
    C3 Slave unit, allowing it to receive and coordinate all of the lance?s sensor and targeting
    data feeds.
    Finally, the ATAA-1-CM mounts a pair of turret mounted Mydron Excel 2SG 30mm LB-X
    autocannons; the 1-CM lacks the targeting computer.  Instead, the 1-CM mounts pair of C3
    Master computers allowing to to receive and coordinate the sensor and targeting data feeds
    for an entire company.  Due to the 1-CM?s dual processers link together the company into a
    giant Anti-aircraft network, they are deployed only to the largest of forces.
    These are the only known variations to the ATAA chassis.
