The YTX 8 was designed without treads, instead employing anti-gravity technology. Two side-by-side aft plasma rocket engines moved the craft forward. The high-yield rocket cannon stored up to twenty rockets in its specially designed HLC (Heavy Launch Clip). The actual cannon used massively compressed air to fire the rocket, saving money and energy.
The YTX 8 is currently on inactive service in reserve military. However, it is no longer prominently used, and only 127 still exist.
