The Mowag Piranha, equipped with an XM777 howitzer, is the Consortium's heavy artillery vehicle initially used during the Oil Crisis.[1]

Overview

Ready to execute command.
- Mowag Piranha

The Piranha is capable of a powerful long-range attack. Its damage zone is larger than the US Paladin, and the vehicle itself is more resistant to damage.

In High Treason the unit received a huge boost to its range, making it the Consortium equivalent to the M270 MLRS and Spinner Titan Launcher.[2]
