Eclipse Lore: Perihelion's unique Challenger 2 is the property of an Irish crew led by John O'Sullivan, veterans of the Irish New Troubles. How the Challenger came into his possession is unclear but the crew clearly has deep bonds with their homeland. The tank is adorned with a stylized Irish oak as well as various folklore symbols. The name refers to an ancient Irish war cry “Faugh a Ballagh”, which is an anglicization of the phrase fág an bealach, meaning “clear the way.”

Vehicle Traits[ | ]
