Medium Class sized Scout and Trooper style vehicle, the Rattlesnake Combat Tank was originally designed and built by Taurian Concordat. The vehicle was originally designed during the Reunification War, which was employed against the invading Star League and it's allies. Like many of the Concordat exclusive designs, the vehicle was lost after the nation's conquest.

However, in later centuries and a misjump of a lost WarShip, a Data Core containing the plans for the Rattlesnake were recovered in 3025. By 3026, the Vickers Memory Core and it's plans for the Rattlesnake Combat Tank were offered to potential friendly buys across the Inner Sphere, including the Lyran Commonwealth.
