Brief History of the Eevee
Nicknamed the "Eevees", the Legionnaire Corps' main battle tank came into service in 2466, and was produced right through until 2476. A large number of them was produced for the Legionnaires, replacing two seperate classes of battle tanks which had been used by the Legionnaires prior. The YVY-T8, and the 10-M "Taschen" were both in dire need of retirement and replacement when the Eevees were brought into service. Very light, these hover-tanks pack a moderate amount of firepower and are moderately protected. Despite their age, these tanks have earned respect amongst war-tested combat troops throughout the galaxy.

Various Information
Equipped with a single front laser turret, which is complimented above it with a specially designed swiver turret that has proven quite effective against un-amoured ground troops, the Eevees strength is its superior agility against other battle tanks. This makes up for major deficiencies in general firepower, as well as lack of effective missile defense systems. To defend it against missile attacks, the Eevees dispose of two short-range missile interceptors. Its armour is moderate, providing it with effective defence against small arms fire, but fairly weak defense against heavier firepower.
