Weapon Systems
1. MCR-68A1 105mm Cannon
Mounted in a retractable housing in the right arm shield, the 68A1 served well as the main weapon of the Hover Tank for years. While it is recommended that this weapon only be deployed in Tank/Guardian mode, it can also fire in Battloid mode. Using the cannon in Battloid mode is awkward (no bonuses to strike) and requires the Battloid to be braced against the recoil. It was eventually replaced by the HPW-125A1 Particle Cannon on the VHT-1A1 variant.

Range: varies by ammunition as described below.
Mega-Damage: varies by ammunition. The cannon can fire the following kinds of rounds:
Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot (APFSDS). A round that uses a dart made of depleted uranium or tungsten to pierce enemy armor.
Range: 4 miles (6.4km)
Mega-Damage: 3d6x10+20 M.D.

High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT). A shell with a shaped charge warhead.
Range: 2.2 miles (3.52km)
Mega-Damage: 2d6x10+10 M.D.

Multi-Purpose Anti-Tank (MPAT). A HEAT round with an added proximity fuse to allow it to engage slow, low flying aircraft such as helicopters and for air bursts over targets.
Range: 2.2 miles (3.52km)
Mega-Damage: 2d6x10+10 to a 50 foot (15.2m) radius

Canister. A shell filled with tungsten shot that acts like a giant shotgun shell for use against building, dug-in infantry, and thin-skinned vehicles.
Range: 2,500 feet (762m)
Mega-Damage: 1d8x10 M.D. to everything within a 25 foot (7.62m) area up to half range, 1d4x10 to everything within 50 feet (15.24m) area at full range.

High Yield Incendiary (Plasma). An extremely lethal anti-personnel round filled with super heated plasma.
Range: 1.5 miles (2.4km)
Mega-Damage: 2d8x10 M.D+10. to everything in a 25 foot (7.6m) area from the initial blast. Sets all combustible substances ablaze and continues to burn, doing an additional 4d8 M.D. per minute for 1d6+1 minutes.

Smoke. These shells emit billowing clouds of thick smoke and are used primarily for cover and to mark target zones. They come in black, white, red, green, and yellow, and make a cloud big enough to obscure an area 100 feet (30.5m) across.
Range: 4,000 feet (1,219m)
Damage: none

Rate of Fire: Three times per melee round
Payload: 48 rounds
Note: Typical loadout for the Hover Tank is nine shells of each kind except for the smoke rounds. Those have three rounds, unless something different is required for the mission.

1a. HPW-125A1 Particle Cannon (VHT-1A1, VHT-1A3 variants).
This is the 125mm particle cannon that replaced the 105mm cannon in later model Hover Tanks. It fires a stream of charged particles over long distances and delivers a massive amount of kinetic, armor piercing damage. While not as versatile as the old cannon, the 125A1 performs extremely well against armored opponents. It also has the added advantage of not needing to carry ammunition, which reduces the operating weight of the Hover Tank. The main drawback of the weapon is that it is an energy hog, and reduces the Hover Tank’s speed by ten percent when active due to massive energy consumption.
Range: 8,000 feet (2,438.4m)
Mega-Damage: 2d10x10+20 M.D. per blast
Rate of Fire: Three times per melee round.
Payload: Effectively unlimited.

Note: The Plasma Cannon delivers a massive stream of particles. The gun hits like a wrecking ball, and any mecha under 50 tons hit by a blast has a chance of being knocked down. When hit, the pilot must make a roll on the appropriate mecha piloting skill to keep his footing. Mecha that are knocked down lose initiative and one attack while they return to their feet.

2. MIW-20 Triple Barreled Ion Pulse Cannon. The MIW-20 is a 20mm, rapid fire ion pulse cannon. It is hard hitting and very accurate over short distances. This weapon is used as a close defense weapon to keep infantry and other mecha at bay, and can only be deployed in Tank/Guardian mode.
Range: 1,800 feet (548.6m)
Mega-Damage: 1d6x10 M.D. per three blast pulse.
Rate of Fire: Each pulse blast counts as one attack
Payload: Effectively unlimited.

3. EU-11 Gun Pod. The EU-11 is a 30mm high-intensity, selective fire laser gun pod capable of firing a single shot or five round burst. It has an integral laser targeting system and a collapsible stock and is powered by an internal capacitor that is charged by the Spartas’ engine. This weapon is accurate at very long ranges. The weapon is fixed forward in transport mode and carried in Battloid mode.
Weight: 250 pounds (112.5kg)
Range: 4,000 feet (1,219m)
Mega-Damage: 1d10 M.D. per single blast, 1d6x10+10 M.D. for a five round burst
Rate of Fire: Each single blast or five round burst counts as one attack
Note: the EU-11 enjoys a +2 bonus to strike (in addition to other bonuses) thanks to its laser targeting system.
Payload: A fully charged capacitor is good for 140 single shots or 28 five round bursts. The capacitor charges at the rate of one blast every two minutes in its housing, and an empty capacitor takes over three hours to charge in full.

4. Hand to Hand Combat.
Restrained Punch/Forearm Shield: 1d6 M.D.
Full-Strength Punch or Shield Strike: 3d6 M.D.
Power Punch: 1d6x10 M.D. Counts as two attacks.
Tear/Pry/Crush with Hands: 1d8 M.D.
Stomp: 2d6 M.D. against targets less than 10 feet (3m) tall
Kick: 5d8 M.D.
Leap Kick: 1d8x10. Counts as two attacks.
Body Block/Ram: 2d6 M.D. per 20 mph (32km) of speed. Uses two attacks and has a 60% chance of knockdown against targets up to 50% bigger. Victims of a successful knockdown lose initiative and two melee attacks.

Bonuses from Mecha Elite Combat Training (MECT): +1 attack per melee round at levels 1, 3, 6, 10, and 14, +2 on initiative, +2 to strike with cannon and long-range weapons, +3 to strike (applies to punches and kicks), +4 to parry, +3 to dodge, +3 to disarm, +4 to pull punch, and +3 to roll with impact. The pilot’s own number of hand to hand attacks and bonuses (if any) are combined with these when piloting the mecha.

VHT-1S Command Variant
Enhanced sensors in this model of tank provide the following additional bonuses to the squadron:
+1 to initiative, +2 to strike, and +1 to parry and dodge for all members of the squadron within one mile (1.6km). This roll requires a roll on the Sensory Equipment skill at a -10% penalty due to the chaos of combat.

Sensors and Abilities
1. Radar that can track airborne targets to a range of 40 miles and ground targets out to 10 miles depending on terrain. The radar can track up to 25 targets at once.
2. Combat computer
3. Communications suite with a powerful encrypted military band radio. Has both wide band and directional signals with a range up to 200 miles.
4. Passive nightvision with a range up to 1,200 feet
5. Thermal imager with a range of 800 feet

VHR-2 Myrmidon Scout Tank

Born of the same project that developed the Spartas Hover Tank, the Myrmidon is a reconnaissance platform that is frequently fielded next to its larger brother to provide electronic warfare support. Designed along the same lines, the Scout Tank has three modes of operation; transport, tank, and Battloid. It shares many of the same systems as the Spartas, including power plants, engines and even transformation gear.

Never designed to be a heavy fighting vehicle, the Myrmidon was fitted with only one integral weapon system. Mounted in the arm shields are a pair of triple barreled ion cannons like those found on the Spartas. These are mainly for defense and to add covering fire for any reconnaissance troopers who might be operating alongside the mecha. An optional EU-11 gun pod can be lashed to the hull of the Myrmidon, but the large weapon is awkward in the smaller hands of the mecha and it is rare for a pilot to use one.

Post Anton-17
The Area. The Zentraedi Control Zone border in the military Sector denoted as "Hotel Sector" of The Highlands region is guarded by three Border Surveillance Posts (BSURPs). Anton-17 is one such border station. It is named after the long-abandoned village of Antonopolis on a nearby hill. It is a small but well-fortified outpost that guards a bridge across the Parana River. The bridge is intact and is used by the RDF when vehicles need to be advanced into Zentraedi territory. The river marks the border of the Zentraedi Control Zone in this region.
The next closest BSURPs are Ruiz-14 and Fuente-16, 35 miles (56 km) to the northeast and southwest respectively. Troops stationed at Anton-17 sometimes go to the village of La Fuente for rest and recreation. The Terrain. The countryside here is rolling hills and ridges around the Parana River valley. Grasslands are broken up with shrubs and light forest in the valley bottoms and groves of yerba mate, a tree whose leaves and bark are made into a popular tea. The land around Anton-17 contains this kind of wooded grassland and a few hills and ridges. The countryside is pocked with relatively few bombardment craters, though patches of grass and many hillsides are cratered and burned with the scars of recent border skirmishes.

Two hundred feet (61 m) to the west of the Anton-17 outpost is the Parana River winding its way southward. The river here is swift and full of rapids, running between steep banks with a sharp thirty-foot drop down to water level. Boulder fields serve as narrow shelves of dry land bordering the river in its channel. In the wet season the river is navigable at this point, otherwise the rapids are too rough and dangerous to permit much boat traffic.

Bridge. A small bridge of steel girder construction lies 500 feet (152 m) northeast of Anton-17. On the Zentraedi side of the bridge, its entrance is blocked with three large barricades of titanium steel. These are of the classic anti-tank design, like gigantic spiked jacks, and are intended to be an immovable obstacle to most conventional vehicles that might attempt to cross the bridge. The barricade can only be moved by Destroids or heavy-lifting equipment. The old roadway on the human side of the river is filled with anti-mecha mines for a length of 300 feet (91.5 m). Of course, military personnel are aware of the mined areas and avoid them.

These mines are deactivated if and when the RDF needs to move equipment over this route, but that occasion is not frequent, so the mines are usually activated. The mine field is also a deterrent to hijackers and Zentraedi supply-runners who might attempt to use the bridge. The roadway leading from the bridge to Anton-17 is not mined.
Bridge Statistics: A conventional steel reinforced structure. It has 1000 S.D.C. (10 M.D.C.) and can support 100,000 tons without straining.
Bridge Barricades: Three, each weighs 10 tons each, has 10 M.D.C. each and can be moved only by a combined strength of 40 or greater.
AM-1 Anti-Mecha Mine:
1D6X10M.D. each
40 foot (12.2 m) blast radius
A weight of 15 tons or greater must be placed on one of these mines to detonate it. A Zentraedi foot soldier or male power armor may not set the AM-1 off, but battle pods, tanks, concentrated troop movement and most mecha will.
Sensors: A scattering of spy-eye cameras are set up in the hills west of Anton-17. These send their data back to the surveillance post by a
series of relay antennas.
A continuous line of "Fingers" motion detection sensors parallel the border (i.e., the Parana River), approximately four miles (6 km) west of the outpost. This is the primary line of detection against unexpected movement towards the perimeter. A microwave fence line is roughly a half mile (0.8 km) west of the border and runs parallel with the river. Both ground motion systems are hardwired into Anton-17's monitoring system. Radar atop the communication tower monitors air activity within a 100 mile (160 km) radius.

Immediately north of and adjoining the station, the microwave fence is interrupted with a guarded gate. Armored vehicles use this passage to enter and leave the western patrol zone without triggering perimeter alarms every time they cross the fence line. Just south of Anton-17, a stretch of the microwave fence is also mined with AM-1 anti-mecha mines. This is actually a deterrent to hinder attackers from encircling the outpost hill.

Fortifications: Anton-17 is made of standard Kepalloy construction, with buildings and defensive walls placed atop a network of underground chambers dug into a 200 foot (61 m) high hill near the river. Fortress walls are a prefab reinforced Kepalloy, with the mega-damage-resistant alloy facing the exterior.
The blast gate faces the river and offers the only entrance into the compound. Hydraulics allow the double-locking reinforced portal to open and close quickly, cycling rapidly for swift combat sallies. As long as the tower at the south end of the gate is intact, the hydraulics are functional, and the gate can open or close in one melee round. If the hydraulics are damaged, mecha or giant Zentraedi with a PS 30 can force the gates open within 1D4 melee rounds. If none of these are available, only demolitions or a heavy vehicle can force the gate to open.

Guard towers connect the outer wall segments. They serve as lookout posts and elevated firing positions for marksmen and laser gun operators.
Seven of the eight towers are armed with the AA laser gun. One is equipped with a Porcupine launch array capable of firing short-range missiles.

Gun Slits in the walls are large enough to launch a grenade from and the infantry inside these ramparts can fire assault weapons from protected
positions. Twenty-five soldiers can man one wall segment and an additional six marksmen are inside each tower battlement.

Buildings inside are also covered with the mega-damage Kepalloy material. The Post Command Center (which is mostly underground) is bolstered with concussion packs and earth for additional blast protection. The underground section includes a storage area, command center, secondary barrack, and power plant/generator. Note: The post also includes a small sick bay, recreation hall and mess hall as part of the large, surface barracks. The Mecha Storage building is shown in the cross-section diagram as an example.


Personnel of Note
Captain Dale Shumer is the commander of Anton-17. A old hand that has served in the RDF from its inception, he is a fair minded and easy going man. His battlefield experience has been as a infantry commander, and has not yet managed to kick the dust off of his boots from the days of marching into combat with his troops. He is well respected by all the solders at Anton-17.

First Lieutenant Elaine Hulsizer is the executive officer of Anton-17 and the second in command. A former Valkyrie pilot, Elaine has lost her flight status after being injured in the epic battle between High Lord Dolza's fleet and the SDF-1. She now uses her perspective as a fighter pilot to try and coordinate the air and ground assets of Anton-17 to be able to work together in a cohesive unit.

Chief Warrant Officer Maxwell Danfield is the man in charge of making sure your mecha are always ready to be deployed. A master scrounger, Max knows enough people in the right places to be able to keep the machines under his control in working order. He leads a team of six other technicians that are kept busy by the rigors of combat in the Control Zone.

Second Lieutenant Kevin Renner is in charge of the infantry company that is stationed at Anton-17. A very strict man, he takes the safety of his troops very seriously.

First Sergeant Antonia is one of the few Zentraedi that call Anton-17 their duty station. Formerly a pilot of the famous Female Powered Armor, Antonia is the Chief of Operations of Anton-17, and is responsible for making things happen for the officers at the base.

First Lieutenant Doctor Amanda Lawrence is the chief medical officer of the base. She leads a small staff of four other medical professionals of two nurses and two paramedics. Amanda is very compassionate, and does her best to keep everyone at Anton-17 in top shape.

Heavy Weapons

HLW-6 Heavy Laser Squad Support Weapon
The first successful energy Squad Assault Weapon (SAW) built by the ASC designers.
Weight: 37lbs
Range: 4,000 feet
Mega Damage: 1d4x10+5 MD for a rapid fire burst
Payload: Six bursts per magazine. A wearable power pack can also be connected to the HLW-6 to extend its capacity. The power pack is a rechargeable, high output capacitor that connects to the rear of a trooper’s utility belt or beneath a standard daypack or combat patrol pack. It holds enough energy for an additional 20 bursts.
Note: A PS of at least 17 is needed or must have the WP Heavy MD Weapons skill to use this weapon without penalty. All others are -3 to strike.

HPW-6 Heavy Plasma Squad Support Weapon
Another heavy, rapid-fire weapon based on the HW-6 frame, the HPW is a three-barreled rotary cannon that fires searing bolts of plasma energy. This weapon packs a heavier punch than the HLW-6, but uses more energy and is less accurate.
Weight: 30lbs
Range: 1,650 feet
Mega Damage: 1d8x10+6 for a rapid-fire energy burst
Payload: Three bursts per energy magazine. A wearable power pack, the same as the HLW-6, can also be connected to the HPW-6 to extend its energy capacity and provide an additional 10 bursts.
Note: Soldiers need a PS of at least 17 or must have the WP Heavy MD Weapons skill. All others are -2 to strike.

XHCPW-6 Heavy Particle Squad Support Weapon
Taking a page from the Zentraedi playbook, this experimental support weapon is the ASC’s first man portable charged particle weapon. It’s unwieldy, high maintenance and uses an incredible amount of energy, but has an incredibly high damage yield for a single shot weapon and has the added bonus being able to knock targets flat. Relatively rare.
Weight: 34.3lbs
Range: 1,200 feet
Mega Damage: 1d6x10+12 for a single blast. When striking a humanoid target under ten feet tall or 1,500 lbs, there is a 40% chance that the target is knocked off its feet. Victims knocked down lose initiative and one attack as they struggle to their feet.
Payload: Three blasts per energy magazine. A wearable power pack, same as the HLW-6, adds an additional 9 blasts.
Note: Solders need a PS of at least 17 or must have the WP Heay MD Weapons skill. All others are -3 to strike.

RL-6 60mm Light Repeating Rocket Cannon
The RL-6 is a light anti-armor weapon that fires 60mm mini-missiles.
Weight: The weapon weighs 16 pounds. A fully loaded magazine weighs around 8 pounds.
Range: One mile
Mega-Damage: By mini-missile type. Standard load is HEAP rounds which deal 1d4x10 per missile, but can be loaded with Plasma that does 1d6x10 MD per missile.
Rate of Fire: One missile per attack
Payload: 6 mini-missiles

BigBore “Room Sweeper” Belt-Fed Shotgun
This is a heavy support weapon meant to be used at point blank range for clearing out rooms, caves, trenches, and other close-quarters environments. The shotgun system has three rotating barrels and connects to an ammo belt that allows an unbelievable amount of firepower to be unleashed within a very small area.
Weight: 20 lbs, plus the ammo pack for an additional 42 lbs usually worn on the user’s back
Range: 200 feet
Mega Damage: 2d4 MD for a single shell, 4d6 MD for a short burst of three shells or 6d6 for a long burst of six shells. SDC damage is 4d6 SDC per single shell.
Rate of Fire: Each burst or single shot counts as one attack
Payload: Ammo pack carries 180 shells
Note: A PS of 24 or better is required to operate the Room Sweeper as a two handed weapon without the shooter suffering ill effects himself. Those with a lower PS shoot with a -4 penalty to strike, and are knocked down on their butts each time they fire the weapon. An Augmented PS of 26 or greater is required to fire it one handed.

D-30 Cobalt Grenades
Weight: 0.5 lbs
Mega Damage: 3d6 MD
Blast Area: 15 feet

D-40 Cobalt Limpet Mine
This explosive mine is very compact, less than a foot long, and includes the explosives, detonator and timer. The timer is digital and can be set from 30 seconds to 60 minutes and can be stopped up to 5 seconds before detonation. The back is coated in a high-powered adhesive with a peel-off cover and will pretty much stick to anything.
Weight: 5 lbs

AP/F (Antipersonnel/Fragmentation) - 4D6 MD to a 12 foot radius for a single shot, 2d6x10 to a 24 foot radius with a six grenade burst
HEAP (High Explosive Armor Piercing) - 6d6 MD to a three foot radius for a single shot, 3d6x10 to an 8 foot radius with a six shot burst
Payload: 48 or 96 round 4omm grenades in a disintegrating link belt.
Note: Solders need a P.S. of at least 17 or must have the W.P. Heay M.D. Weapons skill. All others are -3 to strike.
CBR Mk. 2E Combat Armor Environmental Hardsuit
CBR environmental hardsuits are descended from the UEDF's CHR-1 Hazardous Environment suit. Advances in materials as well as environmental systems have allowed the ASC to capitalize on the fully sealed armor idea, providing a sturdy, relatively lightweight suit that fully protects the wearer from hostile environments. Worn by aerospace pilots, combat divers, and TSC naval infantry, these suits consist of a fully articulated, positively pressurized hardsuit that is worn much like a spacesuit or hard diving suit. The suits are made primarily of ceramic composite plates that lock together with flexible joints that provide the wearer with both flexibility and protection. Environmental suits do not utilize a unisuit, but instead have all the standard features integrated into a built-in lining. Mk. 2E environmental hardsuits come in light and heavy varieties and vary in style and color depending on service branch.

Features of All CBR Environmental Armor:
1. Full Environmental Shielding: CBR full environmental hardsuits are positively pressurized and proofed against radiation, chemical and biological agents. These suits have an internal computer that runs the life support systems and a built-in oxygen tank good for two hours of use fully buttoned up. The oxygen supply can be extended indefinitely by drawing in outside air and filtering it through the integral scrubbers, or with external oxygen packs.
2. Heat and Fire Resistance. CBR hardsuits are nearly impervious to extremes of temperature up to 2,000 degrees F (1,093 degrees C) and down to -300 degrees F (-184.4 degrees C). These suits are also fireproof and take no damage from normal fires (campfires, bonfires, house fires, vehicle fires, etc.). Nuclear fires, napalm and plasma fires all deal normal damage.

Service: Used primarily by the ASC Tactical Space Corps, Global Military Police and Navy Division.

CB-S Tactical Shields
Made of the same ceramic alloys as the CBR body armors, the CB-S shields give a soldier an extra level of protection against both melee and ranged attacks. Used by a number of branches within the ASC, these shields come in light, medium and heavy types, and vary in color and style to match the armor they come with. CB-S Tactical Shields are used by most of the ASC, with the exception of the Navy Division, Tactical Air Force, Civil Defense Flying Corps, and the Tactical Corps Mountain Division.
Light Shields: 25 M.D.C. Weight: 5 pounds (2.25 kg). +1 to parry.
Medium Shields: 40 M.D.C. Weight: 10 pounds (4.5 kg), -5% to skills that require manual dexterity (Pick Locks, Demolitions, Field Surgery, etc.) +1 to parry.
Heavy Shields: 55 M.D.C. Weight: 15 pounds (6.75 kg), -10% to skills that require manual dexterity (Pick Locks, Demolitions, Field Surgery, etc.) +2 to parry.

Special Features of Shields:
Spotlights: Shields worn by the TSC, TASC, TCDD, TCCD, and TCFD contain tiny, high intensity xenon floodlights with a 300 foot (91.4 m) range. These lights are powered by a rechargeable power cell with a six hour life-span.
Integral Weapon Sheath: The Heavy shield worn by the GMP has an integral sheath to carry the S-11 Stun Baton. The sheath locks the baton in place so that it can't slip out during vigorous activity.
GMP Officer's Weapon Sheath: The shields of GMP officers carry a short sword (2D4 S.D.C. damage) in place of the Stun Baton.

ASC Survival Pack
The pack is about the size of a briefcase, weighs eight pounds (3 .6 kg) and includes the following:
Bivouac Bag: Weather proof sleeping bag that doubles as a temporary shelter. Protects the sleeper to -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-29 Celsius).
High Intensity Flashlight: Solar charged power cell is standmd: 200 foot (61 m) effective range of the light beam.

The Regult Tactical Battlepod has been the workhorse of the Zentraedi military for centuries. Light on armor, it makes up for it with heavy firepower and the fact that the Zentraedi use the Battlepod as a attrition unit. Several variants of the Pod have been made, including two different Artillery models that replace the rear autocannons with short or medium range missiles, and a reconnaissance Pod that removes all of its weapons to make room for its advanced sensors. In space, the Pods are capable of extreme speeds in excess of Mach 9. On a planet, their top speed is only 175mph. All the models of the Tactical Battlepod have only 125 total MDC for their main body.

Next up is the Glaug Officers Pod used by the male Zentraedi officers. While slower than the Regult, it can still run circles around the RDF and ASC mecha on the ground with its running speed of 175mph. Flying in space, the Officers Pod is very slow, but it has a rocket booster sled that takes its slow flight speed of 150mph to over Mach 12, and makes it capable of atmospheric flight with speeds comparable to the Valkyrie and Logan Veritechs. The Glaug has a main body MDC of 225.

The Female Power Armor is, thankfully, a rare opponent on the battlefield. Armed with particle cannons and over 126 short range missiles, only the Zentraedi female aces get to operate this deadly weapon. Its in atmosphere flight speed is just over Mach 1, but in space this vehicle can race at over Mach 15, and with its main body MDC rated at 290 points, this is a serious threat to anyone going up against it.

The Male Power Armor is second only to the Tactical Battlepod in its ubiquity. Heavily armored by Zentraedi standards, it is still much weaker than any of the REF mecha in the field with its main body MDC of 250 points. It can fly in atmosphere at a speed of 400mph, but in space, the speed jumps up to Mach 9. Armed with a particle cannon and a grenade launcher, it is a lethal mecha, not to be underestimated by ASC troops.

The Quel-Quallie Theater Scout AKA Cyclops fills the role of both scout ship and AWACs for the Zentraedi. It is large, with a three man crew of trained electronic warfare specialists. The Cyclops is a powerful all terrain combat support ship used by the giant aliens. With its four long, stilt-like legs, it can walk at a wobbly 40 mph both on the ground and under water, or it can fly in the atmosphere at a speed of Mach 2.5, and in space at a stunning Mach 35. It is armed with a quartet of particle cannons and dual missile launchers, and is protected by 1,600 points of armor.
