The Lupus was a heavy tank commanded by General Radi Jaeger in the invasion of southern Gallia. It is featured in battles during Chapter 5 and Chapter 17, both times appearing as a boss. In its later encounter with Squad 7 the Lupus boasts enhanced armour plating and a smoke mortar.

ProfileEdit

One of the latest Imperial tank models was further enhanced specifically for General Jaeger to use in the invasion of Southern Gallia. It's treads are common for a heavy-class tank, but it sports an ambitious 122mm cannon, the largest in the Empire at the time it was developed. The use of sloped glacis plating around the body represents just one portion of the beast's comprehensive defense.

The later form, the Lupus Regnum, made under Jaeger's direction, added extra armor plating over the radiator (a weak point common to all tank models) along with other parts of the hull and turret. In addition to weighing the tank down considerably, this design bore a strong risk of overheating when operated for an extended period of time. Jaeger overcame that flaw by operating the vehicle near his platoon's camps, where auxiliary cooling measures could be taken while attacking the enemy. A smoke mortar was also added on the turret.

TriviaEdit

  • Like most Imperial weapons, the Lupus has a Latin animal name: Lupus is Latin for "wolf." The term is most commonly used to describe subspecies of the genus Canis which include the dingo, most wolves and the domestic dog.
    • Additionally, "Regnum" means "kingdom" or "to rule," presumably in reference to the Allied translation of "Königstiger" as "Royal" or "King" Tiger rather than the more correct "Bengal Tiger."
  • As for design influence, the Lupus draws heavily from the Soviet IS-2 heavy tank, with Germanic influences (for instance, the suspension is inspired by the Tiger I's, and the overall layout is very akin to that of the Maus). Additionally, the Lupus is the only tank in the game which is actually heavier than the historical counterpart.
  • The Lupus appears in VCIII as a boss type unit whose front armor can eclipse nearly any shot totally yet its side armor and rear armor are prone and its radiator so weak that 7 tank bullets from the MG will cause light damage.
  • With a barrel length of 43 calibers, the Lupus' D-25T cannon has the longest bore of the proper tanks of VC1, with a length of 5,246mm. It also has the least difference between the in-game and real life versions.
