Description

The Merkava is an ancient heavy battle tank design that started its service life with the Terran Alliance when the Mk. I first deployed in 2294; after the formation of the Terran Hegemony in the early twenty-fourth century, the Merkava Mk. II became a key component of the Hegemony Armed Forces armored units from its introduction in 2384 and was a main battle tank through the Age of War. Eventually, after technological increases left the tank behind, it became a periphery garrison tank where it served ably, if unimpressively, for centuries.

The Merkava VIII cannot be found in any faction's forces. It can only be found in Magistracy of Canopus stores.
