With the Monowheel drive system and suspension proving themselves to be both reliable and effective the Blightun Empire decided to repurpose this design for a fast moving gun platform. The original Monowheel parts were upscaled to support the increased armor, engine and ammunition being carried. The final vehicle is both effective at range and in close combat. Monowheel Dragoons affectionately refer to the Sturmrads as "Big Brothers".
During development this unit was referred to as the "Doom Wheel".

Sturmrads are an amazing unit for Blight to field. They are bulky and have a diverse range of use against Allied players. They have a good attack against units that also have good attacks against them. Even their air range of 1 will make Allied Planes think twice. Their best quality is their cheapness and usefulness.
Sturmrads are best used against Allied Tanks. You can field multiple cheaply and hit them hard. They are also capable of taking a hit and keep going. I'd pair them with Panzerfaust to decimate Allied Armor or with their more versatile Monowheel brothers to assist them in taking down enemies.
