The GM-FATv2 is a light tank destroyer deployed with Graditoran forces as either a light armored reconnaissance vehicle or a tank hunter, aka tank destroyer.

While the F.A.T provided to be a solid fighting vehicle the F.A.T had mechanical unreliability plaguing it while traversing over difficult terrain due to poor torque. Due to the reparations not many were ordered and a new order of a completely new designed tank using only the tracks, road wheels, and drive wheels. The vehicles weight was dropped 5 tons and lowered the height of the chassis and designs for a new engine was submitted for a more powerful torque output while retaining the 400 HP. A new feature the F.A.T 2 comes with is the ability to be airdropped with it's crew dropped separately at the same time and can be modified for amphibious operation. While in water the gun can be fired without any tipping so long as the vehicle is settled between shots.

105mm missiles can be fired from the barrel of the gun armed with HEAT, DEMO, PAYLD, and SAM warheads. All missiles are capable of either direct or overhead flightpath excluding the SAM.
