Mongers of Death.

Guzzlers of diesel, eaters of dust. The ideal trade for any soldier smart enough to utter "Rather drive than walk". We take the ground,(admittedly we're not much good at holding it, but that's what Infanteers are for). Cool Black berets. Big guns (check yer Missus' rifling for the proof)

On the downside, tanks present huge targets, and if we break down, we revert to being Infanteers (see: track grease).

Also, if we get "brewed up", it is a horrific way to die, locked in an iron box with the ammo bins cooking off. For a for an idea of how close a call a Brew Up can be check out the story of a 120 MM Blowback.
