The Maghariba Guard is the cream of the crop of the Haqqislamite army. This celebrated armoured regiment produces the units that form the personal guard of the Hachib, Haqqislam’s Prime Minister. TAG technology is very expensive and, even though the Maghariba Guard Regiment is not the only one equipped with these single-man armored combat vehicles, it is the most prestigious.
Due to its prestigious nature, the Maghariba Guard has been able to gather the funds to replace its old Artefaktech XPR-1 units, manufactured under license in Bourak with the codename Bokböceği (Turkish for “Beetle”). The more advanced XPR-5 Akrep (“Scorpion”) has been retrofitted to improve its close combat capabilities, and includes a cutting-edge anti-ballistic defence system.
Due to the scarcity of available units, High Command prefers not to risk them needlessly; Haqqislamite strategy books do not include massive armored charges. Instead, the Maghariba Guard acts as a heavy anvil against which the Ghulam Infantry crushes the enemy. This does not mean that Maghariba pilots are chosen for their cautiousness. In fact, they tend to be very cunning, using their inferior numbers as an advantage and clearing away enemies with an intelligent and precise display of their increased mobility and firepower.

Shiny Games says about the Maghariba Guard
This is a new (May 2016) re-imagining of the Guard Regiment’s huge TAG, a bigger and more fearsome-looking model more faithful to the concept art. The old version is still available for the moment however, if you prefer that.
Check out this unboxing video from Beasts of War; it shows you how the model as it comes out of the box and their finished product:
