The Karlsson is a model of Assault Chassis that can be installed on a Mobile Trench.

DescriptionEdit

"The largest and most intimidating of all the Chassis, the Karlsson can carry some serious firepower. What it lacks in Emplacement Slots it more than makes up for in Weapon Slots. Who needs emplacements when you can bring a Cannon AND a Broadcaster?"

Tactical AppraisalEdit

The Karlsson is the sweetheart of the Assault class - the heaviest-armed Trench on most battlefields and the single toughest overall fighter in terms of potential damage output. This alone guarantees it being one of the most common trenches on the battlefield, but the Karlsson's raw power comes at a step price - it has the least number of viable turret slots, with only a single light turret and support turret slot to its name - and given the fact that it's an Assault chassis, the Karlsson is also the least-efficient user of these turrets. They also curse it with the largest hitbox and make it an easy target - A Karlsson is the most vulnerable trench to attack, though its heavy armor and weaponry often make this a relatively small problem.

Whilst the Karlsson's raw power makes it a centerpiece in battles, this often means that, unlike the slightly smaller McGarry, which tends to drop its light turrets as part of a greater plan, the Karlsson pretty much always has to be kitted for a very specific role before the battle starts. This makes the Karlsson a bit less efficient than the McGarry on long-term operations, but the Karlsson more than makes up for it with raw power - no trench in the game can come even remotely close to the sheer bevy of weaponry the Karlsson can cram on. Weaponry is the focus, so be sure to exploit its raw power religiously.

If firepower isn't cutting it as a Karlsson, you aren't using enough.
