Predator #317

Today's vehicle is the highly decorated Predator #317. The tank shows normal battlefield repairs that would be done to keep the tank in service. As before, the Latin name for this tank has not been chosen. Feel free to comment a good name!

During the Third War for Armageddon, this Predator was part of a three vehicle convoy, when they were attacked by Orks! During the fighting, its companion tanks were wrecked, and it had to continue fighting on its own. Ammunition running low, the fighting resided temporarily which gave time for the survivors of Predator #321 time to transfer more ammunition and man the pintle gun. With Commander Colos now on the pintlegun, they turned back the massive green wave. The aftermath showed that over 1400 orks were killed in that engagement, earning this tank the solid bronze Aquila Plaque to display!
