Mecha - Broadsword - Super Stealth Logan Prototype Veritech


Kaerri's Man. =)
(From Return of the Robotech Masters, Page 101).

The Logan is everything a Veritech should be. It is nimble, swift, maneuverable, and versatile. However, some argued that it was a bit too light, and vulnerable to heavy or sustained attacks by the enemy. This led to design variants of a more heavily armored version of the Logan. Just as variants of the original VF series, like the Armored Veritech and Super Veritech (and the Alpha and Beta that came later), were built for "heavy combat" applications, a heavy combat variant of the Logan was designed and put into limited production (at least 200). Like the original Veritech, the Super Logan is made with ceramic armor that is laser resistant. Its structural arrangement and transformation procedure are identical to that of the original design, including the reinforced wing structures that the Veritech can use as forearm shields. The small size has been largely retained to allow it to function in the same environments of its progenitor mecha.

The main differences between the standard Logan and this Super variant are size (it's slightly bigger), heavier armor and weaponry (most notably a larger missile payload). The thrusters are also more powerful for increased speed, and it has a much greater range for extended operations. Unlike the super version of the VF series Veritech, however, the Super Logan can not breach the atmosphere to reach outer space under its own power and still only has two modes of transformation Jet and Guardian). Although a space booster system was designed, no prototypes of that system are known to exist.

Robotech: Broadsword addition. In my game, this prototype also comes with a stealth system with sensor spoofers on the Super Logan that make it harder to hear (the engines were literally quieter) and harder to detect using radar or enhanced optics (very similar to, but stronger than, the Myrmidon-class Veritech Hover Tank's system. Anyone trying to spot one by radar or enhanced optics are -25% to their Sensory Equipment skil roll; those using acoustic sensors are -15% for the same roll).

The Super Stealth Logan
Vehicle Type: Veritech Fighter (transformable)
Crew: One. A passenger can also fit in the cockpit, but must sit in the pilot's lap. (GM Note: In Robotech: Broadsword, all mecha are two-seaters. The Logan holds the distinction for being the only Veritech with side-by-side seating.)
M.D.C. by location:
* Forward Lasers (shoulders) - 20 each
* Nose Tri-Cannon - 40
Upper Arms - 85 each
Forearms/Shields (wings) - 350 each
* Hands - 50 each
Legs - 1 50 each
Main Engine Thrusters (2) - 1 40 each
Wings (2) -3 50 each
* Tail Fins (2) - 40 each
* Retractable Utility Arm - 5
* E-20 Gun Pod - 80
Reinforced Pilot's Compartment - 200
** Main Body - 250
* A single asterisk indicates small targets or places that are difficult to hit. Attackers must make a Called Shot to hit them and are -4 to strike.
* * Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body shuts the unit completely down.
Speed: Hover (stationary) 3 to 300 feet (.9 to 91.5 m) above the ground, 3,216 mph (Mach 4.8) with a 60 mile service ceiling in Jet Fighter Mode.
680 mph, Mach 2.5 (2688 km) and as slow as a complete hover in Guardian Mode.
Running in Guardian Mode is a maximum of 50 mph (90 km). Note: Unlike the normal Logan fighter, the Super Logan is not hindered by space flight or underwater operations.
Height: 8 feet (2.4 m) in jet mode; 1 3 feet (3.9 m) in Guardian Mode.
Width: 21 feet (6.3 m) from wing tip to wing tip.
Length : 2 1 feet, 2 inches (6.3 m).
Weight: 7.3 tons fully loaded.
Main Engine: FH-300 1 Fusion Turbine
Range: Effectively unlimited. The reactor styled power source provides enough energy to operate for about four years of constant use. The average life span of the power system is
eight years before requiring replenishment of protoculture.

Weapon Systems
1 . Forward High-Powered Lasers: Identical to those found on the standard Logan, except on the Super Logan, they are mostly concealed by the side decking.
Primary Purpose: Assault
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Missile
Effective Range: 4000 feet (1,200 m)
Mega-Damage: 6D6 per twin blast. If one is destroyed, reduce the damage by half.
Rate of Fire: Equal to the pilot's combined number of hand to hand attacks per melee.
Payload: Unlimited

2. Rapid-Fire Tri-Cannon: Identical to the weapon on the standard Logan.
Primary Purpose: Assault
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Vehicle
Effective Range: 8000 feet (2,400 m)
Mega-Damage: 1D6x10 for each triple blast.
Rate of Fire: Equal to the pilot's combined number of hand to hand attacks per melee.
Payload: Unlimited

3. E-20 Energy Gun Pod: Identical to the weapon used by the standard Logan fighter.
Primary Purpose: Assault
Secondary Purpose: Defense
Effective Range: 4000 feet (1,200 m)
Mega-Damage: I D4x10 per blast.
Rate of Fire: Equal to the pilot's combined number of hand to hand attacks per melee.
Payload: Unlimited

4. Short-Range Missiles: The Super Logan can also use the optional wing missiles available to the standard Logan fighter, however, it also has an additional payload of missiles built
into concealed launchers much like those of the Alpha fighter.
Primary Purpose: Assault
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Armor
Damage: Varies by specific missile type. Only short-range missiles can be used in the built-in launchers.
Rate of Fire: Missiles can be fired individually or in volleys of 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 , or the entire payload (32).
Effective Range: Varies by specific missile type, but usually from 2 to 5 miles (3.2 to 8 km).
Payload: Total Missile Payload is 28 short-range missiles plus optional wing missiles for a possible 32 short-range missiles.
The payloads for the specific missile launchers are as follows:
Optional Wing Missiles: 4 short-range or 2 medium-range missiles.
Upper Thruster Launchers: 4 missiles each (total 8)
Leg Launchers: 6 missiles each (total 12)
Arm Launchers: 4 missiles each (total 8)
Note: The war tom conditions found on the Invid occupied Earth make large numbers of missiles rare and hard to come by. Characters should be careful how they dish out their payload, for it might be quite some time before they are able to replenish it.

5. Hand to Hand Combat: Rather than use a particular weapon, the veritech can engage in hand to hand combat. All bonuses are identical to the standard Logan hand to hand combat training.
Punch: 1D4 M.D.
Body Block: 1D6 M.D.
Kick: 1D4 M.D.
