Nothing is known about the mysterious Martollo Cartel, the gang has been around since 2016. They didn't have any connections with the Global Liberation Army or anyone else since they started out as a small time drug running cartel, it has been a threat towards athorities in the region since its rise into the criminal underworld relating to drug rings and serious cases of gang wars; Everything in the cartel changed in 2028, when they went to war with the New Andes Armada which started the South American Civil War with the cartel's attempt to take over the entire continent, during the civil war they have been given support by terrorist forces of the GLRF to attempt to gain control along with the assistance from the GLA's Theron Guards, the Cartel is currently losing the full-scale civil war.
Their forces consist of gang members who decided to take it out to the streets and take on the Andes Armada with their own tactics of ambushes and small use of tanks along with technicals, they have the experimental Geschutzwagen Panther-V Artillery, which was never built during WWII. Along with the Panther-V Tank and the Jagdpanther Tank, the cartel may be sneaky but they are not strong in terms of combat strength since some units they use can be somewhere around weak to moderate strength, lucky enough they can rely on infantry numbers and use of combat vehicles like the Panther tanks which can utilise various weapons and roles.

Experimental artillery version of the Panther that was designed and built during World War II as a prototype model that didn't make production, despite not being produced it was known by the German military as a possible heavy armoured artillery but shots fired were inaccurate.
All-thou the prototype of the Panther Artillery was built during World War II, the Martollo Cartel decided to mass build the tank to see how it operates through various captured production facilities, after results from bombarding several bases, the mysterious cartel used these artileries to bombard positions.
