The SAA-H is an Illayko vehicle officially designated as the Strategic Armoured Artillery (Hover) and has seen various upgrades since its introduction to active service.
It features just one weapon, a high-output particle cannon capable of inflicting high damage at medium to long range. The combination of this weapon and the high manoeuvrability made the armour an flexible and effective battleground asset.
The SAA-H has seen action in a number of major historic battles of the Illayko people. Most famously, regiments of SAA-Hs launched an ambush against dropships of the Gnobo League during their assault on Ompolor VII, blunting the assault and starting the counter attack against the invaders.
Conversely, the SAA-H was outclassed and outgunned during the Wun’Tux invasion of Illayko territory. Its agility and manoeuvrability were wasted when under siege or sustained assault from the heavier armour of the reptile forces.
