A nuclear-equipped walking battle tank. Its main selling point was its ability to launch a variety of nuclear warheads toward anywhere on earth from any location. With the ability to move independently instead of using a standard nuclear launch module, it was equipped with a weapon, which allowed it to launch a nuclear weapon with no external support. Because it could operate from regions, which were-up to that point-not on the world's nuclear stategy map, it was a weapon that destroyed the sensitive balance of nuclear deterrence and represented an enormous threat to the entire world.
