The Otter Mark VII series aims to replace many the above-mentioned variants with autonomously operating or remotely operated alternatives. Production of tanks in the mark VII series has been authorised in the latter years of the Daatman Administration, and it's numbers are limited. The Mark VII-GMS, Mark VII-AT and Mark VII LVS saw action during the Iesus Christi Civil War, particularly during the Battle of Herswood Forest.
The tank has a digital fire control system, and the crew is protected against Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) threats with an NBC overpressurization system. For increased protection in urban combat, it is equipped with an active protection system.
