AC Bataille[]

AC Bataille

AC Bataille

The Bataille is a tread AC with bazooka weapon arms and shoulder-mounted laser and plasma cannons. It has high AP and defense ratings, but is slow and vulnerable to high-power weaponry.



In-Game Information[]

A tank nut, he's saddened that more pilots don't take advantage of what he considers to be, the best leg parts available. He became a Raven in order to prove that a tread-based AC can hold its own as well as any other.


This guy gives a bad name to the actually good tank users out there, proving that enthusiasm and good intentions cannot compensate for true Raven skills. Sandoval loves to make a target of himself. The problem with Sandoval is that he focused on firepower, leaving Bataille with no mobility outside slow tread crawl and an occasional ineffectual boost. So while his cannon weapons could seem threatening, in fact the pilot's lack of aiming capability renders Bataille way less deadly than it should be. The bazooka weapon arms (already questionable to have on a tank AC), are inconsequential because of their short effective range, where this AC is the most easily engaged and flanked. Combining the slow movement of his AC with predictable cannon shots, Sandoval can go down easily. A fast AC with any sort of high-damage output weaponry should be able to beat him quickly. And if you want to humiliate him for extra measure, a missile boat AC is going to blow up his craft lightning quick.



The name Sandoval refers to a habitational surname derived from the town of Sandoval de la Reina in Spain.

The name Bataille means "Battle" in French.
