Tactical analysis

  • Tanks but no tanks: The Thunderclap is one of the most devastating tank killers in any military force today. With a viciously powerful tesla arc cannon that can quickly lock down enemy vehicles or infantry while electrocuting them and a large array of dragon blaster missiles able to turn a tank inside out, even a single Thunderclap can stop an entire armoured column; as the annihilation of the armoured assets of the fifteenth Imperial Mecha corps by the American 92nd Air Cavalry Division in the battle of Magnet Falls in Oregon aptly demonstrated with even the Empire's beloved King Onis falling victim to Longbow ambushes.
  • A hard steer to clear: The Thunderclap is also a highly resilient and agile combatant, able to take a significant beating and still return to base for repairs. This endurance also gives the vehicle a great deal of staying power, letting it hover over the battlefield for substantial stretches of time before having to return to base.
