The Artemis

The Artemis will be the next and eighth Tier 8 unit of the Crimson Hand Battalion to be released.  It is an Infantry unit with base Strength of 900 and comes fully upgraded with 1080 Strength--the same as for the Triton Carrier and higher than the first six Tier 8 units.  The Artemis' item code is UM43.

The Tank icon in the image is probably incorrect.  The game files indicate that the Artemis is of the Infantry class.  This would make more sense since there is an existing Tier 8 Tank in the Cerberus.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Artemis:
"Artemis was one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. Her Roman equivalent is Diana....  [Artemis] was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows.  The deer and the cypress were sacred to her."
Here is the Artemis in its docking station:

Here is an icon of the Artemis from another angle, as it appears in combat:

The Artemis was "unofficially" released on April 12, 2012.  It was officially released on April X, 2012 (depending on your time zone).  The Artemis has been confirmed to be of Infantry class:
