Technologies and Combat characteristicsEdit

Putting emphasis on crew protection and firepower, Morita incorporated the iconic Energy Converting Armor of variable fighters to the design of the M61. Initially opting for the VF-17's FF-2100X Thermonuclear Reaction Engine, the expensive FF-2100X was turned down in favor of the VF-11's FF-2025G Thermonuclear Reaction Engine, giving the M61 protection comparable to that of a VF-11 Thunderbolt in Battroid mode.

The initial baseline production model of the M61 tank was armed with two 150mm cannons, which were later replaced by two 176mm cannons. Anti-infantry protection was provided by two 7.62mm Machine guns, but due to the fact that it required the crew to expose themselves to operate, the two 7.62mm were replaced by two 7.62mm Remote Weapons Stations. Additional protection is provided in the forms of S-Mines and Shock/Concussion Grenades, which can be launched from the tanks eight dischargers, and later a "Trophy" type system to defeat rockets and missiles. Finally, while not built for outright speed, the later models can achieve a respectable 70km/h while on road.
