Default AA tank naming

ok, so I am working on an imperial AA tank that is a 'counts as' hydra. I am going to name it like the usual tank name that is so common in Imperial tanks. Vindicator, Annihilator, Conqueror, Thunderer, ect. But alot has been taken, so here is a list of names I have come up with thanks to the Emperor's holy Google.

-Opposer

-Forbidder

-Forsaker

-Refuser

-Rejecter

-Resister

-Subjugator

-Decimator

-Eradicator

-Slaughterer

-Advocator

-Contender

-Protector

-Convicter

-Punisher


I am asking you all to help me. Which one sounds better for an AA tank?

Thanks!

Well I 'd say for an AA tank Protector or Resister. But Subjugator sounds so freaking cool. Perhaps if your planning on making any other sort of tank Subjugator would work, but for a defense platform like an AA tank, a suitably defense oriented name would be best.

Resistor sounds best for what you're going for... in my opinion anyway.

I dunno, if you look at the naming conventions, its only tanks on russ chasis' that get names like that. Chimera chasis tanks are named for mythical creatures:
ie. Chimera, Basilisk, Salamander, Hydra, Manticore, Hellhound, Griffon etc.

But its not based on the Chimera chassis. He's making a "counts as" Hydra.

Hard choice, but I think it's Forsaker. Ready to mop up the skies!
