Until expanding its operations in the early years of this century, Valiant Systems was primarily known as the producer of several lines of moderately successful civilian vehicles, including the Valiant Regal sportster made famous by Immortal Warriors XXVII to XXXII. Mostly out of the public spotlight Valiant also produced military-grade armor and missile systems for the AFFS. In the waning years of the Third Succession War, though, the company partnered with Wunderland Enterprises to design and build the Striker Light Tank, a cheap but effective wheeled vehicle that gained popularity in the AFFS.
Producing that vehicle in the new Johnsondale plant constructed in 3006, the company soon began to build a number of different light combat vehicles for both the AFFS and local militia forces. Still, it wasn’t until after the Clan
Invasion that Valiant and Wunderland jointly debuted a new combat design, the Pilum Heavy Tank. At about the same time, however, both companies provided significant aid to the Combine’s Scarborough Manufacturers on Al Na’ir. Though that aid garnered both significant animosity within the Draconis March, it ultimately provided Valiant the opportunity to build the Pegasus Hovertank, which the AFFS has been snapping up as fast as they can be produced.
