Based on a Blower tank hull, the "Walrus" Combat Engineering Vehicle employs its features to support emplacement of other vehicles in the field and attack enemy defensive complexes that are problematic to regular tank and artillery fire.

The Walrus is lighter than a regular tank owing to its far les substantial turret.

Its 18cm Heavy Laser is capable of sustained fire for cutting away at defensive structures and the dozer blade is utilised in digging in tanks into a 'hull down' position and erecting defensive berms.

The crane is useful in general construction work and for lifting heavy vehicles. The Walrus carries an extra supply of ground penetrating rockets for "bunker busting" and its anti-mine capabilities are enhanced.

Lacking defensive weapon systems other than point defence strips, the Walrus needs to operate closely supported by other vehicles.
