Background/History: Tesla Troopers are the heavy anti-tank soldiers of the Soviet Army. Used by all of the nations of the World Socialist Alliance (Including the USSR, Cuba, Iraq, Lybia, Mexico and others), the Tesla Trooper is equipped with a small Tesla cannon and power source for use against enemy tanks and infantry.

Tesla Troopers may (some hints in the fluff text suggests this) all be clones of the same trooper or same few troopers.

Personality/Motivation: Tesla troopers are brave and loyal. They often have over inflated opinions of themselves, based on the abilities of their weapons, as well as a twisted sense of humour.

Quote: "Let the juice flow."

"Ten thousand volts, coming up."

"Rubber shoes in motion."

Tactics/Powers: The Tesla Troopers are equipped with an armoured battlesuit that includes a small Tesla power source, and a forearm mounted Tesla Cannon. Firing bolts of artificial lightning over short distances, the Tesla Cannon is equally effective against enemy troops and vehicles. Tesla Troopers often work in teams to destroy enemy vehicles, several ganging up on one tank. They can also be used to charge up Tesla Coils, boosting their power, or powering them in the advent of a power failure. The Trooper's battlesuit is well-protected against small arms fire, and offers some reistance to heavy, vehicle mounted weapons.

The Tesla Trooper wears a full-body rubber suit to protect them from shocks from their weapons. Over the suit is an armoured shell, protecting the trooper's head and upper body. The trooper's face is hidden behind an iron mask. Armoured boots and gauntlets complete the uniform, with the tesla gun mounted on the forearm.

Design Notes: Much of what I've got here is based on the trooper's appearance in-game and guesswork. The Tesla Coil is an immobile, defensive weapon, something like an 8d6 RKA or so; I'm guessing that it has an absorbtion vs electrical attacks that the Tesla trooper "feeds" with his gun. Tesla Troopers are cool.
