The Manticore (Missile Tank) is a mobile missile launcher platform that can provide air defense with radar guided missiles and fire unguided rockets in an artillery role. Massed numbers of rocket armed Manticores can deliver a greater amount of bombardment fire than a larger group of Basilisks in a shorter amount of time, although the reload time is much longer. The Manticore is a flexible missile launcher system based on the Chimera chassis. It mounts a Manticore Missile Launcher with four massive warheads per salvo. Being able to fire a number of different shells ranging from anti-infantry oxy-phosphor to high explosives for anti-tank roles gives the tank a degree of tactical flexibilty, such as being capable of filling an anti-air role by firing surface-to-air interceptor missiles.
