It doesn't!  8^(

Nektons are noted for closing quickly and sudden assaults, their neural
destroying sonic weapons,  their lack of prisoner taking (unles HQ wants
some intelligence,) and their quick withdrawals when the assault gets
stopped cold by the opposition.  Having been introduced to FTL empires
slaves to the Ralnai has given them a somewhat Xenophobic view on
'aliens' and their amphibious (froggy) minds are a bit callous about
casualties without being 'berserker' or 'suicidal' oriented - extremely
opportunistic as it were.

Somewhat like the Russians - let the recovery crews take it to depot if
we win and if we withdraw we use a thermal grenade to light it up...

Most of their stuff is more like 'amphibious flying subs'  then AFV's -
pop-up attacks somewhat like VTOL's in Dirtside 2.  

Only reason I used them (JS tanks) was they were what I couldn't sell
(so far) after gettting a great deal on six pizza boxes of
figures/vehicles, a underbed storage box of vehicles/terrrain bits and
the rules (Tractics) I wanted for a friend - all for  $25.  Most of it
has been sold off (Last bit - except for terrain and a few amphibious
vehicles -  I am waiting for a MO to arrive) to pay for my war game
of interest' figures.
