Banshee - once war moved from the north pole to urban environments, a new problem was discovered - the lack of anti-garrison combat support. Although powerful in nature, even the strongest WEA armor couldn't stand against a well placed garrison ambush. After a few deadly encounters which ended with heavy looses for WEA forces, the Banshee program started. The main goal was to create a light vehicle that can clear out garrisoned structures. The final product was a fast all-terrain armored vehicle, highly resistant to any weapon infantry has, which can fire a special type of grenades that take out garrisoned infantry and can also be used as a strong anti-infantry weapon in the opened field. The Banshee is the perfect example that the initial idea can become the perfect result.
RDSG - The increased use of V3 and other heavy artillery systems, made even the formidable WEA defence lines rather vulnerable. Fortunately for WEA, the development of static energy barriers was already in development, and it wasn't long until this technology was largely used in combat. The massive shield generator is initially built as a vehicle. The shield generator, however, requires several special conditions in order to function. One of those being that it is required to deploy before activating. Once deployed, the shield generator is operational, and massive electromagnetic conductors start to direct energy fluxes into a continuous barrier that can immediately burn any incoming projectile, shell or missile alike. The downside to this very powerful support unit is that it requires a great deal of energy, and even more when deflecting incoming projectiles or missiles.
Although WEA ground defenses were more than a match for most enemy forces, when it comes to air support, WEA fell short. Both Sioux heavy gunships and Havoc gunships were the worst nightmare, WEA ground forces could ever face. After being tasked with the creation of a new air-superiority gunship, Valhalla Weapons Corporation created the unexpected. although everyone was expecting a heavy anti-air unit, Valhalla scientists used a relatively new French gunship design and equipped it with multiple weapons systems. The result was a light, fast and very agile gunship capable of taking out even the heavy gunships and also offer a good ground support. It was named Viper because it could strike very fast and with deadly venom. The Viper is equipped with a dual photon burst cannon, AA pods and 6 Proton missiles for anti-ground support. Once again the minds from Valhalla proved that their imagination has no limits.
Centurion - WEA scientists got inspiration from a recently discovered computer virus that somehow managed to become self aware after several years spent inside computer networks. Further information about the discovery was never brought to light, but it is certain that soon after the discovery WEA began work on their newest AI system and the development of the Centurion Project.
Initially beginning as a project to create a new generation of armoured tanks, it soon became the most advanced military design in the WEA agenda. After many years of tireless research and development the Centurion was finally revealed to the military high command. Built from a powerful alloy that can take lots of punishment, the tank is equipped with the latest version of the AI system, 2 powerful Heavy Rotary Gatling Cannons and a Long Range AA Missile System. The latest in sensor and targeting technology enable this unit to strike with incredible accuracy, while the robotic nature make it immune to toxins and radiation.
