Get that giant down by Shabazik Get that giant down by Shabazik
"Get that giant down! Move! Move! Move!" yelled the UEC colonial militia sargent to his forces.

"Yes sir!"

"And get these damn SPAAG here, NOW!!"
______________________________________________

An image from the #LegacyVerse, during the Human-Alaerin war, that lasted between the 2330 to the 2333, fought between the human United Earth Confederancy and the Council Sovereignity of Alarie, wich was the outcome of the first contact between humans and the giant Alaerin on Ruby-21

The war consisted mostly in a serie of skirmishes, and most of the action was in the space, carried by the respective fleets: however, as well several UEC and CSA colonies where compromised in the fighting, being changed of hands.

The giant Alaerin, capable of resist large amounts of damage inflicted by conventional infantry weapons, it was needed to face them mostly armored vehicles:

However, the UEC Main Battle Tanks (MBT) where mean to face other armored vehicles, rather than giants, being many times the maximal and minimal depression of the main gun insuficent, and the aiming devices wheren't the better to face some female giant shoktroopers with high movility:

However, a field conversion was done by the UEC forces, to revert this situation: Meanwhile the MBT may had a difficult time facing the Alaerin ground forces, the SPAAG systems -Self-propelled Anti-Aircraft gun instead was much more versatile, with the quick fire of the autocannons, better guiding and aiming devices, as well being quicker to correct the fire:

Many UEC units re-fitted their SPAAG with additional armor, or re-fitted their MBT and armored vehicles with one or more autocannons in anti-aircraft guns, to give a better and quicker response to the quick and small -numerically, not in size!- Alaerin inflitration forces.

After the end of the war the 2333, is know that several human militaries, despise the existing peace with the Alaerin, are developing modified SPAAG designed specially for the eventuallity of future wars with the giants.

If you're fighting giants and elevation is an issue, you're too damn close.

Or don't know how to drop 'em with a shot to the shins or knee.
