This video shows surveillance footage of the Grinder (Soviets) primary and secondary combat functions.
Battlefield reconnaissance has revealed at least these facts about the Grinder:
• Chews through anything -- Though lacking conventional weapons, the Grinder can tear through any surface targets in due time. In general, the bigger the target, the longer it takes for the Grinder to chew it up and spit it out. Victims of the Grinder are helplessly trapped in place as the vehicle does its work.
• Turbo-charged -- Normally the Grinder isn't the quickest vehicle in the Red Army. To address this, an industrial-strength turbocharger substantially increases top speeds. Note that the turbo speeds cannot be sustained indefinitely due to the Grinder's inability to displace all the heat efficiently.
• In hot water -- True to its cobbled-together nature, the Grinder incorporates spare parts from Soviet ore collectors, lending it amphibious capability in spite of its massive girth. This is perhaps the least accidental aspect of the Grinder's design: The Soviets knew they needed a heavily-armored combat vehicle that could breach out into contested waters and clear a path for expansion forces.
• A turn for the worse -- Although the Grinder is quicker than a battle tank, it cannot turn as easily because of its wheelbase. This means smaller enemies can sometimes outmaneuver it to avoid getting torn to shreds. The solution, say Soviet strategists, is to attack with multiple Grinders driving side-by-side.
