The Krieg Welpen tank (war puppy) was devoped by the Belkaustan Confederation as a light/medium tank. It shared much similarities with the larger Krieg Hünd (war dog) since both were designed by the same company. It was meant for the opening stages of the invasion of the UCPR, but due to bombing raids it was introduced in the second year of the war.
About this creation
The tank was generally used as a heavy escort vehicle, or as a support tank for infantry or heavier tanks. It could be used in large numbers since it was a cheap tank to produce. However it could not win a 1-1 fight with imported Tongorian tanks, especially the Jagd Kougar tank was feared by most Confederation tank crew.

It travels very fast over rough terrain and is well know for it’s speed. Since the confederation geography is mostly jungles the light weight of the tank made it easy to cross almost all kinds of terrain.
The armament consisted of 2 coaxial 50. Machine guns, a 50. Machine gun, and the 75 riffled main gun.
