This is a concept for the Cavalier Walking Light Tank for my scifi/fantasy story "Scars of Gaia"The Cavalier started out as an advanced vehicle used to combat barbarians and air pirates based in mountainous terrain where no wheeled vehicle can go, armed with twin 30mm chain cannons, they can break through solid rock barriers - every time its chain guns fire nine solid rounds, the tenth would be an explosive one.The role of barbarian/pirate hunter of the mountains soon changed when the Terrans attacked the Kingdom of Needlehelm, where Centaurs and Centarides were becoming hard for normal tanks to combat, the Cavalier was able to keep up with the enemy Centaurs and Centarides. In addition, the Cavaliers lower legs could be extended meaning they could cross rivers and other water bodies where normal wheeled/tracked vehicles cant and lead a "backdoor" assault on a Terranian camp, although while in the water, the chain cannons cannot provide full protection against water creatures as the chain cannons cannot point down that far, meaning if a water creature closed in to its legs, then it would be destroyed - the legs are extremely vulnerable to Dryads as they can tangle a Cavaliers legs up.The Cavalier has a crew of one, the 30mm chain cannons are auto-targeting and can stand 20ft maximum, its legs are powered by artificial muscles
