VAF-6I Alpha Fighter
M.D.C. by Location:
Head – 75
*Sensor Pod – 45
Hands (2) – 45 each
Forearms (2) – 120 each
Upper Arms (2) – 90 each
Shoulders (2) – 100 each
Upper Legs (2) – 120 each
Lower Legs (2) – 180 each
**Wings (2) – 150 each
***Tail Stabilizers (2) – 100 each
****Main Body – 420
Reinforced Pilot’s Compartment – 150
EU-13 Gun Pod – 100
*Destroying the sensor pod will knock out most of the Alpha’s sensors in Battloid mode. Radar range is reduced to 10 miles (16km), and long range radio, laser communications, and the targeting system are disabled until it transforms into guardian or fighter mode. All of this leaves the Alpha at -3 to strike, parry and dodge.
**Destroying even one wing will send the Alpha immediately out of control and it will be unable to fly in fighter mode until the wing is repaired or replaced.
***Destroying one vertical stabilizer reduces all bonuses and speed by half and the Alpha is very unstable in fighter mode, but still flyable (-15% on all skill rolls involving stunts and evasive maneuvers). Destroying both stabilizers sends the Alpha out of control, much like losing a wing. The Alpha is unable to fly in fighter mode until the stabilizers are repaired or replaced. Note: The tail stabilizers are small targets to hit and requires a called shot with the following penalties: Shooting at a stationary target -4, moving target -6, and fast moving target -11 to strike.
****Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body destroys the mecha, rendering it totally useless.

VF-B9 Beta Fighter
M.D.C. by Location
Head – 75
*Back Mounted Sensor Pod – 100
Hands (2) – 100 each
Chest Retractable Missile Bays (2) – 180 each
Shoulder Pop-up Missile Bays (2) – 160 each
EU-14 80mm Pulse Beam Cannons (3) – 100 each
**Forearm Shields (2) – 375 each
Forearm Ion Blasters (6; three each arm) – 15
Upper Arms (2) – 120 each
Upper Legs (2) – 180 each
***Wings (2) – 170 each
****Main Body – 515
Reinforced Pilot’s Compartment – 170
*Destroying the Sensor Pod knocks out most of the Beta’s sensors in Battloid mode. Radar range is reduced to 10 miles (16km), and long-range radio, laser communications, and the targeting system are disabled while in Battloid mode. All of this leaves the Beta at -3 to strike, parry, and dodge. Note: This is a difficult target to hit and requires a called shot with the following penalties: Shooting at a stationary target -4, moving target -6, and fast moving target -11. The same is true of the forearm guns.
**These heavy shields can be used to protect various parts of the Beta’s airframe. Attempting to block incoming missiles, projectiles and energy beams requires a successful parry roll. Depleting the M.D.C. of a shield will destroy the wing transformation mechanism and will render the Beta unable to transform into Guardian or Fighter mode.
***Destroying even one wing sends the Beta immediately out of control and it is unable to fly in fighter and guardian modes until the wing is repaired/replaced.
****Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body will destroy the mecha.

Weight: 8 tons
Speed: The FASTPack increases all flying speeds by 50%, and can reach speeds capable of entering orbit.
Bonuses: +1 to parry and +4 to dodge in all modes while in space. This bonus is in addition to any skill bonuses.
Penalties: While designed for space, it can be used in the atmosphere. The Super Valkyrie is awkward, and due to the increased weight of the FASTPack and drag, it reduces all combat bonuses by 25%.

Weapon Systems
MDS-L-46 “Hailstorm” Missile Pack: The Hailstorm Missile Pack adds an additional 46 short range missiles to the Valkyrie.
Range: dependent on missile type; usually 3 to 5 miles
Mega Damage: Dependent on missile type; usually 2d6x10 MD
Rate of Fire: Singly or in volleys of 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, or all.
Payload: 46 missiles. Twenty in each thruster pack and three in each forearm.

Optional NP-BP-02 Beam Cannons: This replaces one of the missile launcher pods on the back of the Valkyrie with a pair of Particle Beam Cannons, reducing the overall missile payload of the Super Valkyrie to 26.
Range: 4,000 feet
Mega Damage: 4d10 per double blast
Rate of Fire: Equal to the combined hand to hand attacks of the pilot.
Payload: Effectively unlimited.

Optional NP-BP-10 Mini-Missile Packs: This replaces one of the standard missile launcher pods on the back of the Valkyrie with a Mini-Missile Launcher with an increased missile payload.
Range: One mile
Mega Damage: Typical payload is either HEAP missiles that do 1d4x10 MD per warhead, or Plasma that do 1d6x10 MD
Rate of Fire: Volleys of 1 to 9 missiles at a time
Payload: 30 Mini-Missiles per individual launcher

Optional NR-BP-E7 FAST "Recon" Packs: These replace both booster packs with an advanced AWACs radar dome.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Enhanced Reconnaissance
RANGE: 600 miles (960 km)
DETECTION CAPABILITIES: The radar of the radome can detect and track up to 800 targets simultaneously and can record position, speed, and direction of motion for all targets tracked. The VF's onboard computer can only track 250 of these contacts simultaneously, but the telemetry from the radome can be transmitted via laser communications to a command ship for further analysis.

1. Radar: Both the Alpha and Beta model Veritech fighters are equipped with a powerful radar array with a 140 degree field of view for targeting and 360 degree warning coverage. This radar is designed for aerospace superiority and strike operations and features a low-observable, electronically-scanned array that can track multiple targets in all kinds of weather as well as outer space. The radar array can also focus its emissions to overload enemy sensors. This gives the Veritechs a limited electronic-attack capability and requires an Electronic Countermeasures skill roll to deploy it. If the character doesn’t have the skill, he can substitute the Sensory Equipment skill, but at a-15% penalty. The VF/A-61 and VF/A-6ZAlphas and the VF/B-9 Beta have a range of 150 miles and can track up to 50 targets at once. The VF/A-6H Recon Alpha has an upgraded radar array that has a range of 250 miles and can track 144 targets at a time.
2. Communications: Wide band and directional radio communication system with built-in scrambler that transmits both voice and cockpit video. Range is 600 miles, but can be boosted indefinitely via satellite relay. Secure laser communication with a range of 250,000 miles.
3. On-Board Computer System: All Veritechs have a powerful on-board computer that handles all targeting and combat control abilities. The combat computer collects data from all sensors and displays the information on the pilot’s HUD.
4. Motion Detector and Collision Warning System: Detects objects within 5,000 feet and alerts the pilot with an alarm and flashing light.
5. Sensor Pod/ Sensor Head: The sensor pod and sensor head have the following optical sensors:
Telescopic Optical Enhancement: 2,000 foot range and a 120 degree field of view.
Audio Pickup and Filtration: This system works both multi-directionally and as a shotgun mic. It can pick up sounds as quiet at a conversation at 500 feet.
Loudspeaker: Amplifies the pilot’s voice up to 100 decibels.
Spotlights: Two tiny, high intensity xenon spotlights with a 1,000 foot range
Infrared Spotlight: Emits an infrared beam that is invisible to the naked eye but can be seen by the right sensors. Range 2,000 feet, but is reduced by half in smoke or inclement weather.
Tactical Camera: This camera, called the “gun camera” by pilots, can record up to 180 minutes of footage into memory that can then be downloaded and watched.
Thermal Imager: Converts the heat signatures of warm objects into visible images. 2,000 foot range and allows the pilot to see through darkness, shadows, smoke, and inclement weather and even through walls up to one foot thick.
Nightvision: Passive light amplification that allows the pilot to see in the dark as long as there is at least some ambient light. 4,000 foot range but is completely useless in total darkness.
6. Ejection Seat: There are two separate ejection systems in the Alpha and Beta. The first is the Atmospheric Ejection System that has a traditional ejection seat that exits through the canopy in fighter or guardian modes or the back in Battloid mode. The second system is for use in space where the entire fuselage from the pilot’s compartment forward is jettisoned. This escape capsule retains the life support system and protects the pilot from both the vacuum of space and enemy fire while waiting to be recovered.
7. Distress Beacon: Broadcasts a distress beacon on an encrypted UEEF frequency. Range of250 miles.
8. Self Destruct: A last ditch system to prevent the capture of the mecha. The blast is largely contained and does 1d6x100 to a 25 foot radius for a mecha with little or no missiles left, and 2d6x100 to a 100 foot radius for a mecha with most or all of its missiles.
9. Smoke and Chaff/Flare Dispenser: All Veritechs carry both smoke and chaff dispensers to confound radar and confuse enemies. The smoke dispenser has four charges and can make a thick cloud of white smoke about 60 feet across. The chaff/flares dispensers have four charges each and have a 01-75% chance to confuse both radar guided and heat seeking missiles. The older Valkyrie model Veritechs have extra chaff/flares totaling 12, and a total of 24 smoke charges.
10. Tactical Life Support: All Veritechs have a pressurized pilot’s compartment with an internal oxygen supply good for 48 hours. This can be stretched to a week through the external oxygen intakes. The intakes are equipped with scrubbers to filter out chemical and biological agents. The pilot can hook the life support from his CVR-3 armor to the onboard system to extend his personal oxygen supply.

Space Cyclone Veritech
The V-021 Nova is specifically designed for combat in the vacuum of space and other hostile or airless environments. Its large, main thrusters are designed for speed and quick response to repel enemies trying to board as well as for boarding vessels themselves. The VR-021 Nova is also deployed to recover fighter pilots who have had their fighter shot out from under them or were forced to eject, as well as rescue people from shuttles and spaceships that have been damaged and set adrift. Their big thrusters and excellent speed in outer space make them ideal for rescue and all sorts of fast-response. Their small size and maneuverability is a plus, because it makes them good at dodging attacks and weaving their way through floating debris. Marines clad in Nova Cyclones are often the first dispatched to board and investigate the wreckage of derelict alien spaceships, space stations, space ports, asteroid clusters and debris fields, with the VR-024 Comet usually covering their backs and exit route.
Both the Nova and Comet are excellent at search and destroy missions, search and rescue, reconnaissance and investigating and clearing derelict spacecraft and asteroid fields, precisely because they are so small, quiet, and fast. Both Space Cyclones can Prowl in space at slow speeds (under 30 mph/48 km), hiding and moving among floating debris or asteroids and hovering down corridors and access tunnels inside abandoned ships and space stations.
In raids and combat assaults, squads and platoons of Marines clad in Nova and Comet Space Cyclones are among the first to punch through and enter the hull of an enemy vessel to board the ship and either engage in combat with enemy forces inside, or rocket down hallways toward a specific target. Such targets may be the capture or elimination of key personnel, alien technology, or locations designated for sabotage, destruction or capture (internal gravity control, communications, fold engines, key weapons, the bridge, etc.). Sometimes, being able to enter the enemy's spacecraft and taking the bridge or other strategic location from inside is easier and more expedient than trying to destroy the entire vessel, especially if it is massive, or if you are trying to preserve lives. The two Space Cyclones are also deployed in this manner on missions of rescue, freeing troops or allies from an enemy ship, or raids to secure supplies from the enemy.
(Note: Space pirates use similar tactics of boarding spacecraft and either raiding and taking what they need, or trying to capture the ship by getting the crew to surrender. If you can take the bridge and/or life support, you can often get the crew to stand down and surrender. This preserves the ship, the cargo and supplies it carries, and it gives them an entire ship - even if it has some damage - to either sell for big profits or repair and add to their own fleet.)
The VR-021 Nova was originally conceived to go toe to toe with Bioroids on hover sleds in space combat, and do so quite well. They can also fight Invid, though the Invid always try to use the weight of their superior numbers in swarming attacks which may force Space Cyclones to retreat. The Nova can handle Invid Scouts and Fighter Scouts in one-on-one space combat admirably well, and have the speed to engage in limited dogfights with them, but against a swarm, the Cyclones may find themselves in trouble very quickly.
The Nova has a number of vernier nozzles in hovercycle mode that are distributed across the body in Battloid mode and enable the mecha to be piloted in deep space in either configuration. It is heavily armored to survive the rigors of space and space combat, and is the most armored Cyclone in service until the introduction of the Battler.
The Nova, in particular, also functions very well in water, with excellent deep sea capabilities. This makes them excellent for underwater exploration, reconnaissance, work and combat.
Model Type: VR-021 Nova Space Cyclone.
Class: Extreme Environment Veritech Hovercycle.
Crew: One.
M.D.C. by Location:
Hovercycle Mode:
* Headlights (2) - 2 each
* Rear Thrusters (2) - 25 each
* Thruster Missile Launchers (2) - 30 each
* Front Hover Jet - 20
** Main Body - 170

Battloid/ Armor Mode:
Helmet/Head - 55
* Main Hover Jets (2; back) - 45 each
* Main Vectored Thruster (I, lower back) - 25
* Thruster Missile Launchers (2) - 30 each
Forearm Shields - 60 each
Beam Cannon (1, handheld) - 50
Armored Forearm Missile Launchers - 30 each (both on one arm)
Legs (2) - 50 each
** Main Body - 170
* Destroying one hover jet reduces the maximum speed of the Cyclone by 33%, and the pilot must operate the vehicle in Battloid mode. Destroying two thrusters makes it impossible to fly in Earth-like gravity, and it can only be flown in space or underwater at 10% of its top speed. To shoot out a hover jet or any item marked by a single asterisk, the attacker must make a successful "Called Shot" with the following penalties: Shooting at a stationary target -4, moving target -6, and fast moving target -11 to strike. These penalties also apply to targeting the head and other small targets.
** Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body destroys the Cyclone, rendering it useless, but the CVR-3 body armor should keep the character alive for a while.

Speed:
Hovercycle Mode:
In Space: Mach 1 (761 mph/1,218 km) in space or hover at a fixed location.
On Earth/Atmosphere: Maximum speed is 140 mph (224 km) on Earth or in similar environments. Cruising speed is usually around 60 mph (96 km), and the mecha can also hover stationary.
Maximum ceiling is an altitude of 5,000 feet (1,524 m).
Like all Cyclones, the VR-021 Nova can exit from sub-orbital spacecraft and "drop" to locations on the ground. Its ability to actually fly enables it to adjust its trajectory and speed to hit its drop zone perfectly every time or to completely change flight plans, or engage the enemy in aerial combat.
Penalties in an Atmosphere: The Nova suffers a Piloting skill penalty of -30% when flying in the air, but only a -15% penalty when flying close to the ground (1-15 feet/0.3 to 4.6 m off the ground). No penalty underwater. Also reduce its combat bonuses by half in an atmosphere and -1 attack per melee. Note: The Nova Cyclone functions best in space or underwater, not in an atmosphere or as a ground combat unit.
Water: The VR-021 Nova can ride across the surface of water at a speed of 100 mph (160 km) or 50 mph (80 km) underwater. Maximum depth tolerance is 2 miles (3.2 km) and the mecha retains all of its usual combat bonuses and capabilities in water.

Speed in Battloid Mode:
Flying in Space: 400 mph (640 km) in space or hover at a fixed location.
Running in an Earth-like Setting: The size and bulk of the Space Cyclone makes running and leaping awkward in an atmosphere and gravity. The max running speed of the Nova Cyclone is 10% greater than the pilot's natural speed attribute. The Cyclone in Battloid can leap up to 10 feet (3 m) high and across unassisted by thrusters. Leaps of 100 feet (30.5 m) high or across can be made when assisted by the thrusters.
Flying in Battloid Mode: The main and secondary thrusters enable the pilot to hover up to 30 feet (9.1 m) high or skim along the ground or the surface of water, or up to 100 feet (30.5 m) at 60 mph (96 km).
Water: The VR-021 Nova in Battloid can ride across the surface of water at a speed of 60 mph (96 km) or 40 mph (64 km) underwater. It can also walk along the floor of a seabed. Maximum depth tolerance is 2 miles (3.2 km) and the mecha retains all of its usual combat bonuses and capabilities in water.

Statistical Data:
Hover Cycle Mode:
Height: 4 feet (1.2 m).
Length: 6 feet, 10 inches (2.1 m).
Width: 4 feet, 5 inches (1.3 m).

Battloid/ Armor Mode:
Height: 8 feet (2.4 m).
Length: 5 feet (1.5 m).
Width: 3 feet, 4 inches (1.0 m).
Weight: 420 pounds (189 kg).

Physical Strength: The 020 series Cyclone gives the wearer an Augmented Strength 6 points higher than his own P.S. attribute and increases P.P. by one point. (These attribute bonuses apply only when in Battloid mode.)
Cargo: None.
Power System: Environmentally Sealed Protoculture Mini-Reactor with a range of about 4,000 miles (6,400 km).
Note: Standard colors are black or dark blue, with grey and white highlights and markings.

Weapon Systems:
1. 80mm Beam Cannon: This large-bore laser rifle is the Nova's main weapon. It sits on top of the forearm and is powered by a Protoculture magazine that attaches to the back of the weapon. It was designed specifically for space combat, though it can be used underwater and in an atmosphere. This weapon is the precursor to the EP-37 pulse beam rifle. It fires single shots as well as three-shot bursts.
Primary Purpose: Assault.
Secondary Purpose: Defense.
Weight: 30 pounds (13.5 kg).
Range: 4,000 feet (1,219 m).
Mega-Damage: 3D6 M.D. for a single blast, 1D4x10+6 M.D. for a three round burst.
Rate of Fire: Each blast or burst uses one of the pilot's attacks.
Payload: 90 single shots or 30 three-round bursts per Protoculture magazine.
Bonus {for Cyclones): + 1 to strike for a single shot, no bonus for bursts.

2. GR-101 Mini-Missile Delivery System (2): These two missile pods hold four mini-missiles each and are located on the front of the rear thrusters. They can be fired in either mode and provide the VR-021 with good striking power. In hovercycle mode, they are located behind and to the sides of the rider.
Primary Purpose: Anti-Mecha/Anti-Armor.
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Missile and Anti-Aircraft.
Weight: Each missile weighs about five pounds (2.25 kg).
Range: One mile (1.6 km).
Mega-Damage: Per type of mini-missile, but usually loaded with HEAP (High Explosive Armor Piercing) missiles which inflict 1D4x10 M.D. per missile.
Rate of Fire: One or in volleys of 2, 4, 6 or all 8.
Payload: Eight mini-missiles total (four in each missile pod).

3. GR-95 Mini-Missile Delivery System: Located on either side of the off-hand forearm shield is a mini-missile pod containing two missiles. It is similar to the other cyclone forearm mini-missile launchers, except that it is more of an enclosed system to ensure that the missiles are not damaged by the rigors of combat in space or other hostile environments. Otherwise, they function exactly like the GR-97. Note: May replace these mini-missile launchers with any of the modular weapons
available to the Cyclone.
Primary Purpose: Anti-Mecha/Anti-Armor.
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Missile and Anti-Personnel.
Weight: Four pounds (1.8 kg) for each of the two launchers, and each missile weighs about five pounds (2.25 kg).
Range: One mile (1.6 km).
Mega-Damage: Per mini-missile, but usually loaded with HEAP (High Explosive Armor Piercing) missiles which inflict 1D4x10 M.D. per missile.
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of two, three or all four.
Payload: Four, two mini-missiles per launcher.

4. Hand to Hand Combat Bonuses: As indicated below. All Cyclones are fast, agile Veritechs suitable for all manner of infantry combat and ground operations. They are even able to dodge and engage Invid and other large mecha, though at considerable risk.
Attacks per Melee: See bonuses, below.
Augmented P.S.: 20-30 is the most common range.
Hand to Hand Damage:
Punch/Forearm Strike: 1D6 S.D.C. + P.S. damage bonus.
Power Punch: 1D4 M.D., but counts as two melee attacks.
Kick or Stomp Attack: 2D6 S.D.C.
Power Kick: 1D6 M.D., but counts as two melee attacks.
Jump Kick or Leap Kick: 3D6 S.D.C. + P .S. damage bonus.
A power leap is not possible. Counts as two melee attacks.
Flying Leap Kick: 5D6 S.D.C. + P.S. damage bonus, but counts as three melee attacks.
Body Block/Ram: 2D6 S.D.C. (P.S. damage bonus does NOT apply) on a body block/ram per 20 mph (32 km) up to 140 mph (224 km). There is a 01-65% chance of knocking down an opponent of equal size or up to 50% larger, or smaller, off their feet. In any case, the victim of knockdown loses initiative and two melee attacks. This attack counts as two of the Cyclone's melee attacks.

Bonuses with Mecha Elite Combat Training in Space Cyclone Only: In space and underwater, the VR-021 gets+ 1 attack per melee round at levels l, 4, 8 and 12; +2 on initiative, +1 to strike, +2 to parry, +1 to disarm, +1 to pull punch, +4 to roll with impact, and +4 to automatic dodge. (Special: The act of dodging, even leaping out of the way, does not use up a melee attack. In fact, the Cyclone is so fast and nimble, that the pilot can leap, hop and skip out of the way without penalty. No other dodge bonuses apply.)
REDUCE bonuses by half (round down) when in an atmosphere or on the ground.
Note: These bonuses ONLY apply in outer space and when the pilot has the Mecha Elite Combat Training skill in Cyclones. The pilot's own number of attacks and bonuses (if any) are combined with these when piloting the mecha. Do not add mecha bonuses to the pilot's Hand to Hand ability when he is outside the mecha. Outside of his mecha, the pilot possesses only human fighting abilities.

VR-024 Comet
Space Cyclone Veritech
The VR-024 Comet is slower in space, but faster in an atmosphere with flight capabilities superior to the Nova. It is designed for reconnaissance, courier missions, and sniper support. The body type is reminiscent the VR-041H Saber Cyclone and many of the parts are interchangeable. It is armed with six mini-missiles mounted on the outside of the rear hover jets, with an additional twelve mini-missiles in the chest (front in Cycle mode), and the
rider usually carries the EU-5 energy rifle into combat.
One of the VR-024 Comet's most distinctive features are the auxiliary boosters on the forearms when it transforms from cycle to Battloid. These rather large boosters give it considerable control and movement in space. They are especially useful for snipers because the thrusters help to hold the Comet in place and rock-steady. When taking evasive action or dodging the claw attacks of the Invid, the arm thrusters give the Marine wearing them tremendous movement and agility to dodge attacks and reposition quickly. The boosters can also be turned on low to help push away melee attackers, giving the pilot a bonus to parry (see below).
The Comet fills all the same combat roles as the Nova, and the two mecha are often deployed in mixed combat squads of both.
Model Type: VR-024 Comet Space Cyclone.
Class: Extreme Environment Veritech Hovercycle.
Crew: One.
M.D.C. by Location:
Hovercycle Mode:
* Headlights (2) - 1 each
* Main Hover Jets (2) - 35 each
* Vectored Thrust Nozzles (rear, 4) - 10 each
* Missile Tubes (6)- 5 each
** Main Body-140

Battloid/ Armor Mode:
* Helmet/Head - 50
* Headlights (2, chest)- 1 each
* Mini-Missile Launchers (2, concealed in chest) - 20 each
* Main Hover Jets (2, back, behind shoulders)- 35 each
* Missile Tubes (6) - 5 each
* Forearm Auxiliary Boosters (2) - 22 each
Legs (2)- 45 each
** Main Body - 140
* Destroying one hover jet reduces the maximum speed of the Cyclone hovercycle by 33% and imposes a -10% piloting skill penalty, and the pilot must operate the vehicle in Battloid mode unless in space or underwater. Destroying two thrusters makes it impossible to fly in Earth-like gravity, and it can only be flown in space or underwater at 10% of its top speed. To shoot out a hover jet or any item marked by a single asterisk, the attacker must make a successful "Called Shot" with the following penalties: Shooting at a stationary target -4, moving target -6, and fast moving target -11 to strike. These penalties also apply to targeting the head and other small targets.
** Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body destroys the Cyclone, rendering it useless, but the CVR-3 body armor should keep the character alive for a while.

Speed:
Hovercycle Mode:
In Space: 500 mph (800 km) and it can hover stationary at a fixed location with secondary thrusters and arm thrusters holding it remarkably steady.
On Earth/Flying in an Atmosphere: Maximum speed is 260 mph (416 km). Maximum ceiling is an altitude of 10,000 feet (3,048 m).
On Earth/Flying over the Ground or Water: Maximum speed is 200 mph (320 km) on Earth and in similar environments. Cruising speed is usually around 70 mph (112 km), and the mecha can also hover stationary. When hugging the ground, the Comet Cyclone is seldom more than 12 feet (3.6 m) above the surface and may be even lower.
Like all Cyclones, the VR-024 Comet can exit from sub-orbital spacecraft and "drop" to locations on the ground. Its ability to actually fly enables it to adjust its trajectory and speed to hit its drop zone perfectly every time or to completely change its flight plan and objective, and fly off anywhere or engage the enemy in aerial combat.

Penalties in an Atmosphere (apply to both modes): The VR-24 Comet suffers a Piloting skill penalty of -15% when flying in the air, and -10% penalty when flying close to the ground (1-20 feet/0.3 to 6.1 m off the ground). No penalty underwater. Also reduce its combat bonuses by half in an atmosphere. Note: The Comet Cyclone functions best in space or underwater and not in an atmosphere or as a ground combat unit; -10% Piloting
skill penalty and -1 attack per melee round.
Water: The VR-024 Comet can ride across the surface of water at a speed of 130 mph (208 km) or 60 mph (96 km) underwater. Maximum depth tolerance is 1.2 miles (1.9 km) and the mecha retains all of its usual combat bonuses and capabilities in water.
Speed in Battloid Mode:
Flying in Space: 300 mph ( 480 km) in space or hover at a fixed location.
Running in an Earth-like Setting: The size and bulk of the Space Cyclone make running and leaping awkward in an atmosphere and gravity. The max running speed of the Comet Cyclone is 10% greater than the pilot's natural speed attribute.
The Comet Space Cyclone in Battloid can leap up to 10 feet (3 m) high and across unassisted by thrusters. Leaps of 150 feet ( 46 m) high or across can be made when assisted by the thrusters.
Flying in Battloid Mode: The main and secondary thrusters enable the pilot to hover up to 30 feet (9.1 m) high or skim along the ground or the surface of water, or up to 1,000 feet (305 m) at 80 mph (128 km).
Water: The VR-024 Comet in Battloid can ride across the surface of water at a speed of 60 mph (96 km) or 50 mph (80 km) underwater. It can also walk along the floor of a seabed. Maximum depth tolerance is 2 miles (3.2 km) and the mecha retains all of its usual combat bonuses and capabilities in water.

Statistical Data:
Cycle Mode:
Height: 3 feet (0.9 m).
Length: 7 feet (2.1 m).
Width: 3 feet, 6 inches (1.1 m).
Battloid/Armor Mode:
Height: 7 feet, 4 inches (2.2 m).
Length: 5 feet, 6 inches ( 1. 7 m).
Width: 3 feet, 6 inches (1.1 m).
Weight: 320 pounds (144 kg) dry.
Physical Strength: The VR-024 Comet Cyclone gives the wearer an Augmented Strength 6 points higher than his own P.S. attribute and increases P.P. by one point. (These attribute bonuses apply only when in Battloid mode.)
Power System: Environmentally Sealed Protoculture Mini-Reactor with a range of about 4,000 miles (6,400 km).
Note: Standard colors are black, dark blue, or medium blue with red and silver highlights and markings.

Weapons and Equipment for the VR-024:
1. Single 60mm Mini-Missile Launch Tubes (6): On either side of the rear of the bike, and on either hover jet mounted on the back when in Battloid mode, are three individual tubes loaded with one 60mm mini-missile each, for a total of six. These are primarily defensive weapons used to shake pursuers and slow down enemy mecha while the VR-024 completes its mission.
Primary Purpose: Defense and Anti-Personnel.
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Mecha and Anti-Missile.
Weight: Each missile weighs five pounds (2.25 kg).
Range: One mile (1.6 km).
Mega-Damage: By mini-missile type. Standard load is High Explosive Armor Piercing (HEAP) which inflict 1D4x10 M.D. per missile, and two smoke mini-missiles which do no damage but create billowing, obscuring clouds of smoke that can help the Comet evade an enemy or mark a target for an air strike or artillery or missile barrage.
Rate of Fire: Individually or in volleys of 2, 3, 4 or all six.
Payload: Six missiles total, one in each tube.

2. GR-103 Mini-Missile Delivery System: These two missile pods hold six mini-missiles each and give the VR-024 a needed punch. They are located together above the headlights in cycle mode, and in the chest sections when in Battloid mode.
Primary Purpose: Anti-Mecha/ Anti-Armor.
Secondary Purpose: Anti-Missile and Anti-Aircraft.
Weight: Each missile weighs about five pounds (2.25 kg).
Range: One mile (1.6 km).

Rate of Fire: One or in volleys of two or four.
Payload: Twelve mini-missiles total (six in each missile pod).

3. EU-5 Pulse Beam Rifle: This is the same weapon issued to Marines using the VR-010 Series Cyclones. It is capable of single shots and bursts and is carried like a rifle by the Cyclone Rider in Battloid mode. In hovercycle mode the weapon is stowed alongside the mecha. This weapon can be used by unarmored humans with a penalty of -2 to strike, and they must have a P.S. of 22 or higher.
Primary Purpose: Assault.
Secondary Purpose: Defense.
Weight: 12 pounds (5.4 kg).
Range: 2,000 feet (610 m).
Mega-Damage: 2D4 M.D. for a single shot, 5D6 M.D. for a five pulse burst.
Rate of Fire: Each shot or burst counts as one melee attack.
Payload: 50 single shots or 10 five-pulse bursts per Protoculture magazine.
M.D.C. of the Weapon: 25 M.D.C.
Bonus (for Cyclones in Battloid Mode): + 1 to strike for a single shot, no bonus for bursts.

4. Hand to Hand Combat Bonuses: As indicated below. All Cyclones are fast, agile Veritechs suitable for all manner of infantry combat and ground operations. They are even able to dodge and engage Invid and other large mecha, though at considerable risk.
Attacks per Melee: See bonuses, below.
Augmented P.S.: 20-30 is the most common range.
Hand to Hand Damage:
Punch/Forearm Strike: 1D6 S.D.C. + P.S. damage bonus.
Power Punch: 1D4 M.D., but counts as two melee attacks.

Body Block/Ram: 2D6 S.D.C. (P.S. damage bonus does NOT apply) on a body block/ram per 20 mph (32 km) up to 140 mph (224 km). There is a 01-65% chance of knocking down an opponent of equal size or up to 50% larger, or smaller, off their feet. In any case, the victim of knockdown loses initiative and two melee attacks. This attack counts as two of the Cyclone's melee attacks.

Bonuses with Mecha Elite Combat Training Space Cyclone Only: In space and underwater the VR-024 Comet gets+ 1 attack per melee round at levels 1, 4, 8 and 12; +1 on initiative, +2 to strike, +1 to disarm, +1 to pull punch, +4 to roll with impact, and +4 to automatic dodge. (Special: The act of dodging,
even leaping out of the way, does not use up a melee attack. In fact, the Cyclone is so fast and nimble that the pilot can leap, hop and skip out of the way without penalty. No other dodge bonuses apply.)
REDUCE bonuses by half (round down) when in an atmosphere or on the ground.
Note: These bonuses ONLY apply in outer space and when the pilot has the Mecha Elite Combat Training skill in Cyclones. The pilot's own number of attacks and bonuses (if any) are combined with these when piloting the mecha. Do not add mecha bonuses to the pilot's Hand to Hand ability when he is outside the mecha. Outside of his mecha, the pilot possesses only human fighting abilities.

Head – 50
**Main Body – 225
*Destroying either tire reduces all bonuses and speed in motorcycle mode by half. Destroying both tires renders the Cyclone unrideable. If the back tire is lost while moving in cycle mode, the pilot needs to make a Pilot: Veritech/Cyclone skill roll at -25% or lose control and crash. If the front tire is lost while moving, the pilot needs to make a Pilot: Veritech/Cyclone skill roll at -40% or lose control and crash. Losing both tires makes driving impossible.
**Depleting the M.D.C of the main body destroys the Cyclone, rendering it useless.
Speed
Cycle Mode: Maximum speed is 160mph (256kph). Cruising speed is usually around 80mph (128kph), and the mecha can also hover stationary. Use of the rear thruster can increase maximum speed by 60mph (96kph) for short periods of time (1d6 minutes), as well as allowing the Cyclone to jump up to 40 feet (12.2m) across or 20 feet (6.1m) high.
Battloid Mode
The Cyclone mecha enhances the pilot’s natural speed. The running speed of the Cyclone is the pilot’s running speed plus 25%. The vectored thrusters allow the pilot to hover up to 30 feet (9.1m) or skim along the ground or the surface of water, or up to 100 feet (30.5m) at 60mph (96kph). The Cyclone in battloid mode can leap up to 20 feet (6.1m) high and across unassisted by thrusters. Leaps of 100 feet (30.5m) high or across can be made when assisted by the thruster.
Physical Strength: The VR-040 series cyclone gives the wearer an Augmented Strength 8 points higher than his own P.S. attribute, and increases P.P. by two points. (This only applies in Battloid mode.)
Cargo: Two lightly armored, hard-sided saddlebags can be mounted to the Cyclone, as well as a top box mounted behind the rider. Each saddlebag is 18 inches high, 20 inches wide and 18 inches deep and can carry 100 pounds. The top box is 14 inches in all dimensions and can carry 50 pounds. These boxes are watertight, lockable, and easily detachable. They automatically drop off when the Cyclone transforms and must be recovered afterward or are lost.


Weapon Systems
GR-103 Mini-Missile Delivery System. These two missile pods hold six mini-missiles each and help to give the Cyclone a needed long range punch.
Range: One mile
Mega-Damage: Varies upon missile type, but usually 1d4x10 M.D.
Rate of Fire: One or in volleys of two or four
Payload: 12 mini-missiles total

Close Assault and Defense System (CADS-1) (2). The CADS-1 system consists of two retractable blades made of steel laced ceramic mounted in the forearm shields of the VR-041 (wheel covers in cycle mode). The blades are 3.2m long and when active, are surrounded by a high-frequency energy field that makes the blades vibrate thousands of times a second. The blades can slice though just about anything.
Weight: 25 pounds
Mega-Damage: A slashing blow deals 2d6 M.D., a punch deals 3d6 M.D., and a power punch does 6d6 M.D. and takes two attacks.

*Destroying either tire reduces all bonuses and speed in motorcycle mode by half. Destroying both tires renders the Cyclone unrideable. If the back tire is lost while moving in cycle mode, the pilot needs to make a Pilot: Veritech/Cyclone skill roll at -25% or lose control and crash. If the front tire is lost while moving, the pilot needs to make a Pilot: Veritech/Cyclone skill roll at -40% or lose control and crash. Losing both tires makes driving impossible.
**Depleting the M.D.C of the main body destroys the Cyclone, rendering it useless.
Speed
Cycle Mode: Maximum speed is 175mph (280kph). Cruising speed is usually around 80mph (128kph), and the mecha can also hover stationary. Use of the rear thruster can increase maximum speed by 60mph (96kph) for short periods of time (1d6 minutes), as well as allowing the Cyclone to jump up to 40 feet (12.2m) across or 20 feet (6.1m) high.
Battloid Mode
The Cyclone mecha enhances the pilot’s natural speed. The running speed of the Cyclone is the pilot’s running speed plus 25%. The vectored thrusters allow the pilot to hover up to 30 feet (9.1m) or skim along the ground or the surface of water, or up to 100 feet (30.5m) at 60mph (96kph). The Cyclone in battloid mode can leap up to 20 feet (6.1m) high and across unassisted by thrusters. Leaps of 100 feet (30.5m) high or across can be made when assisted by the thruster.
Physical Strength: The VR-050 series cyclone gives the wearer an Augmented Strength 10 points higher than his own P.S. attribute. (This only applies in Battloid mode.)
Cargo: Two lightly armored, hard-sided saddlebags can be mounted to the Cyclone, as well as a top box mounted behind the rider. Each saddlebag is 18 inches high, 20 inches wide and 18 inches deep and can carry 100 pounds. The top box is 14 inches in all dimensions and can carry 50 pounds. These boxes are watertight, lockable, and easily detachable. They automatically drop off when the Cyclone transforms and must be recovered afterward or are lost.

Speed
Vehicle Mode: 140 mph maximum on a flat, clear road. A more cautious 47 mph off road.
Battloid Mode: 60 mph
Statistical Data
Vehicle Mode:
Height: 5 feet, 11 inches. 7 feet, 11 inches with a turret on the rear mount.
Length: 12 feet, 10 inches
Width: 6 feet, 11 inches. 7 feet, 11 inches with side mounted weapons.
Battloid Mode
Height: 13 feet, 5 inches. 20 feet, 8 inches with a turret on the rear mount.
Length: 9 feet
Width: 11 feet, 2 inches
Weight: 2,667 pounds or 1.3 tons
Physical Strength: Robotic Ps of 30
Cargo: Four lightly armored, hard-sided panniers can be mounted to the Silverback between the wheels (or mounted on the arms in battloid mode). Each saddlebag is 27 inches high, 30 inches wide and 27 inches deep and can carry 200 pounds. These boxes are watertight, lockable and easily detachable from the Silverback.
Power System: 3,200cc supercharged, high-output, Protoculture fired rotary engine. All Silverbacks also have a backup power system comprised of an electric motor that is constantly charged by regenerative braking systems in the wheel hubs. The engine's battery can store enough power for two hours of general riding. Use of the backup power system renders the Silverback unable to transform to battloid mode and reduces speed by 25%.

Weapons and Sensor Systems
1. Modualr Rear Equipment Mount: The rear turret can mount various types of anti-armor or anti-aircraft weapons, or a reconnaissance and sensor suite. Only one piece of equipment can be mounted on this turret at a time. The following are the most common options:

A) HRG-140 Dual Rail Gun: Standard issue ordnance is the HRG-140, which looks like two HRG-70 rail guns mated together in a turret that is mounted on the top of the Silverback in vehicle mode and in battloid mode. In both modes, the turret can rotate 360 degrees to fire at enemies from all sides, even behind, and has a 90 degree arc of fire, up and down, to engage air or ground targets with equal ease. The rail gun can be fired by the pilot or from the passenger seat, as well as from a remote palm control unit.
Weight: 50 lbs
Range: 4,000 feet
Mega Damage: 2d6 MD for a single round from each weapon, and 2d4x10+14 MD for a 20 round burst.
Rate of Fire: Each shot or burst counts as one action/attack.
Payload: Each ammo drum carries 2,000 rounds, good for 200 bursts. One full reload/ammo drum set can be carried by the Silverback, but one of the missile reloads will have to be left behind. Drums can be replaced by anyone with the Field Armorer, Weapons Engineer, or Biomechanical Maintenance skill.

B) Optional: AAC-11 Flak Cannon: The AAC-11 is a double-barreled cannon that loosely resembles the HRG-70 rail gun, but is slightly larger and has greater range.
Weight: 150 lbs
Range: 6,000 feet
Mega Damage: One round does 3d6 MD, a ten round burst does 2d6x10 MD
Rate of Fire: Each single shot or ten round burst counts as one action/attack, but bursts only get half the usual strike bonus and cannot be used for precision shooting (no Called Shots with a burst).
Payload: Each ammo drum carries 1,200 rounds, good for 120 bursts.

C) Optional LMMDS-12 Missile Delvery System: A box launcher carrying 12 short-range missiles can be mounted on the turret of the Silverback. Two men working together can reload an entire launcher in two melee rounds (30 seconds).
Weight: Each missile weighs about 33 lbs.
Range: Typically 3 to 5 miles.
Mega Damage: Varies by missile type, typically 2d6x10 MD per missile.
Rate of Fire: Singly or in volleys of 2, 4, or 6. One volley counts as one melee attack.
Payload: 12 short-range missiles, up to one full reload can be carried on the Silverback.

D) Optional MMMDS-6 Missile Delivery System: A box launcher carrying six medium-range missiles can be mounted on the turret of the Silverback.
Weight: each missile weighs about 80 lbs
Range: Typically 50 miles
Mega Damage: Varies by missle type.
Rate of Fire: Singly or in volleys of 2 or 4.
Payload: Six medium-range missiles, but one full reload can be carried on the Silverback.

E) Optional MMDS-48 Missile Delivery System: A box launcher carrying 48 mini-missiles can be mounted on the turret of the Silverback.
Weight: Each missile weighs about five pounds.
Range: Typically one mile.
Mega Damage: Varies by missile type.
Rate of Fire: One or in volleys of 2, 4, 6, 12, or 24.
Payload: 48 mini-missiles, but one full reload can be carried by the Silverback.

F) Optional OSS-88 Scout/Reconnaissance Sensor Suite: This is a more powerful sensor suite than the one mounted on the Cyclone. It is deployed in scouting/reconnaissance and forward observation roles, as well as a C3 unit. It has all the standard sensor suite features, as well as an IFF/CC unit much like the VF/A-6H Command Alpha.
10x Optical Image Enhancement: Magnifies the pilot's vision by 10, as well as digitally sharpening and stabilizing the image.
Passive Nightvision: Ambient nightvision uses trace amounts of light to make the pilot see as if it were daytime. Range 1,000 feet.
Thermal Imaging: Thermal imager that uses the heat signatures of people and objects to make a visible image. Allows the pilot to see in total darkness, through walls, incliment weather and smoke. Range is 1,000 feet
Digital Video and Still Recorder: A digital still camera and video recorder. The camera can record 36 hours of video or tens of thousands still images on digital media. These images can be broadcast to others with the ability to receie them, as well as be downloaded from the digital media back at base. 10x optical magnification as well as digital sharpening and stabilization.
External Audio Pickup: this system works both multi-directionally and as a shotgun mic. It can pick up sounds as quiet as a whisper at 500 feet and can sift through ambient sounds for specific noises.
Laser Distancer and Range Finder: Can estimate distance, altitude, and rate of approach/travel as well as be used to paint a target for airborne and ground based ordnance delivery. Range two miles.
Encrypted Long-Range Communications Array: A high-powered, long-range and encrypted radio. This system can also scramble enemy communications, and can be focused and used to temprarily oerload enemy comm arrays for 1d6 rounds. This gives the Silverback a limited electronic attack capability and requries a Electronic Countermesures roll. Radio: Basic can be used instead at a -30% penalty.
Enhanced Radar Suite: More robust radar antennas are installed on the Silverback that allow the pilot to identify and track up to 144 different airborne targets up to 75 miles and 48 land targets up to 25 miles. The data from the radar can be boradcast to other mecha or installations. The radar can also be focused and used to temporarily burn out an enemy's radar for 1d6 rounds. This requires an Electronic Countermeasures roll, but Radio: Basic can be used instead at a -30% penalty.
IFF/CC Computer System: The Silverback also has an integrated Identify Frend or Foe (IFF) system for increased command and control, with a database of up to 300 known enemies of the UEEF. This system can identify a target, assign it priority based on known abilities and threat level, and even anticipate known behaviors and tactics. The onboard computers can then connect to the computers of all other Silverbacks, Cyclones or other mecha in the squad (up to 18), and transmit the data to them. This grants all mecha that are linked the following bonuses: +2 to initiative, +2 to strike, and +3 to parry and dodge to all mecha. This requires a roll on the Sensory Equipment skil at -10% due to the chaos of combat. The IFF system can "learn" new enemies by analyzing data from the targeting and combat computers, as well as gun camera footage.

2. H-260 Valiant Laser Assault Rifle (1): The H-260 is a man-sized, heavy laser assault rifle issued to Cyclone pilots, Silverback crews and heavy infantry troops.
Weight: 12 lbs
Range: 2,000 feet
Mega Damage: 2d6 MD single shot and 4d6 MD for a three round burst.
Rate of Fire: Each blast uses one melee action/attack.
Payload: Protoculture energy clip provides 415 single MD blasts or 138 MD bursts per E-Clip.

3. Modular Weapon Systems for Wheel Hardpoints (4): Each wheel cover has a modular hardpoint similar to the Cyclone. The H-260 Valiant is always mounted on the right side of hte front wheel and a GR-97 Mini-Missile Launcher on the left side. Any of the following weapons can be mounted on the three remaining hardpoints; the H-260 is standard issue.
EP-40 Ion Pulse Pistol
GR-97 Mini-Missile Launcher
EP-37 60mm Pulse Beam Rifle
HRG-70 Rapid Fire Rail Gun
RL-6 60mm Light Repeating Rocket Cannon

4. Hand to Hand Combat: The Silverback can also engage in hand to hand combat if necessary.
Restrained Punch: 1d4 MD
Full Strength Punch: 1d6 MD
Power Punch: 2d6 MD; counts as two melee attacks
Stomp Attack: 2d6 MD, but only on targets 6ft tall or smaller
Jump Kick and Leap Kick: 2d8 MD, but counts as two melee attacks
Body Block/Ram: 2d6 MD on a body block/ram per 20 mph of speed. There is a 60% chance of knocking an opponent of equal size, up to 50% larger, as well as smaller opponents off their feet. In any case, the victim also loses initiative and two melee attacks. This counts as two of the mecha's melee attacks.

Bonuses with Mecha Elite Combat Training: +1 attack per melee round at levels 2, 4, 8, and 12.
+1 to strike, +1 to parry, +2 to dodge, +2 to roll with impact.

The juggernaut of the UEEF is the MTA-Titan, an all-terrain mecha transport and assault weapon. This marvel of Robotechnology can function with equal ease on land, underwater, and in space. In space and underwater, its two rear thrusters rocket it along, while directional thrusters, found in the structures that line the center of the undercarriage, keep it stable and change direction.
On land, eight huge sphere-wheels enable it to ride over the most inhospitable terrain. However, the wheels are more than just wheels, they are actually six-man command modules. Inside each are six fully armored Cyclone riders seated at a consul that floats freely inside the wheel. When the Titan stops, the Cyclone riders can safely exit to engage the enemy or investigate.
The main body looks deceptively like a troop or cargo carrier. In reality, it is a massive rapid-fire laser cannon. The Titan can undergo an instant modular transformation in which the cannon slides up and forward into firing position while two protective shields rise into position and the engine thrusters flip sideways.
The cannon is very similar to those incorporated into the defense systems of the SDF series battle cruisers. It is intended to be a heavy artillery support and assault field unit. On top the cannon is a particle beam turret to defend it from aerial assault.
In addition to its formidable weapons, the Titan has a mecha bay containing 12 mecha, depending on the needs of the assignment and availability, along with 4 Golems and 4 Daniel Support Battloids. Only the M.A.C. III and old-style mecha are too large to fit. When combined with its troops of mecha, the MTA-Titan becomes a rolling fortress of mind boggling power.
Crew: 26 minimum, 40 maximum, and can still accommodate 10 additional passengers. Note that the troops are separate from the crew.

Mecha Complement: 20
12 Hover Tanks, Alpha Fighters, or Destroids of various types,
4 Golem Infantry Support Battloids

*Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body will shut the vehicle down completely, rendering it useless. Destroying the Bridge/Command Section will seriously impair the vehicle, resulting in the loss of all sensors, long-range communications, crew and commander. The Titan can be piloted from any one of the eight wheels, but speed and attacks per melee are reduced by half.

Speed: Land speed varies with the terrain, but can reach speeds of up to 210mph (336kph)
Hover: The Titan can rise off the ground and hover by using its directional thrusters. Maximum height is about 500 feet (152.2m).
Flight is possible, but limited. Top speed is a slow 100mph (160kph) maximum altitude is about 500 feet.
Space propulsion maximum speed is nearly Mach one, 650mph (1040kph)
Underwater propulsion. Ride on the floor at speeds of about 40mph, and through the water like a submarine at speeds of up to 100mph. Maximum ocean depth is 2.2 miles.

Ship's Systems of Note
EC-32 Theater Advanced Warning and Control System (TAWACS): The Raven is packed with powerful radar, command and control equipment. The main component is the high output Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar mounted in a dorsal radar pod. The AESA has a 360 degree field of coverage and can track up to 700 targets at a maximum of 2,450 miles through dense, hostile EWAR environments, heavy radar clutter and even at low altitudes. The computers and operators on board can transmit this data to all friendly military forces operating in the theater via a direct data link, up to 2,800 miles, and can provide real time information on the movements of enemy aircraft, vehicles and ships.
EC-32's also fill the role of an orbital command and control center within the combat theater. Using their sensors, radar, and data links, EC-32's can transmit targeting information and sensor telemetry to friendly forces in theater up to a range of 800 miles. This grants combat bonuses to all ships, vehicles and aircraft within the group. All friendly military forces in theater are +1 melee attack, +2 to initiative, +2 to strike, and +3 to dodge when linked to the Raven's C3 computers.

NOTES:
  1. Depleting the MDC of the main body will put the cruiser out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck.
  2. Destroying the command tower will instantly kill the command staff and deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of a VF-1 Valkyrie. The ship can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half. Destroying the main sensory array atop the command tower will have the same effect, but the command staff will not be killed instantly.
  3. Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its secondary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash (destruction of the main engines will render the antigravity system useless due to loss of power).
SPEEDS:
Speed (sublight):
0.20 speed of light (32,000 miles per second)
Speed (Auxiliary Drives): Mach 3
Space Fold: Range Unlimited (1 light year every 6 minutes)
Planet bound: Can land if necessary but not designed to maneuver in an atmosphere.

Maximum Range: Unlimited (estimated 20 year life span, which can be extended with regular maintenance and overhauls)
Note: the Northampton-class cruisers are extremely agile (in starship terms) and get an additional +2 to dodge (plus stealth bonuses) when avoiding fire from enemy starships.

STATISTICAL DATA:
Length:
820 ft (250 m)
Weight: 120,000 tons (empty) / 160,000 tons (standard)

WEAPON SYSTEMS:
1. MAIN LASER CANNONS (2):
The main weapon systems of the Northampton cruisers are two heavy laser cannons, mounted on either side of the ship near the command tower facing forward. Despite the ship's small size these cannons pack a punch equal to those used by larger Zentraedi vessels and make the Northampton a foe to be reckoned with. Each laser can fire separately or together, but can only fire at targets that are almost directly in front of the cruiser (lasers can aim 10 degrees off the ship's centerline).
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Heavy Assault
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Warship
RANGE: 50,000 miles
DAMAGE: 1D8x1000 M.D. per blast
RATE OF FIRE: Each cannon can fire once per melee round.
PAYLOAD: Effectively unlimited.

2. HEAVY MISSILE LAUNCHERS (2): To back up the heavy lasers the Northampton cruisers are also armed with two heavy missile launcher tubes that launch ICBM-like missiles at enemy ships. The missile tubes resemble torpedo launchers and are mounted alongside the main laser cannons on each side of the ship. The launchers contain long-range nuclear or reflex missiles and are usually used only during assaults and heavy combat.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Assault
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Warship (Mecha Planetary Assault)
RANGE: 3,000 miles (4824 km)
SPEED: Mach 2+ (1340 mph/2140 kmph) in an atmosphere.
DAMAGE: 4D6x1000 M.D.
BLAST RADIUS: 3,000 feet (915 m)
RATE OF FIRE: The rapid reload system used on the missile launchers allows each tube to be loaded and fired once per melee round.
PAYLOAD: A typical battle load is 10 missiles at the ready with 20 missiles in storage that can be readied for firing in about 30 minutes. Additional missiles can be carried if deemed necessary, however.
NOTE: These missiles CANNOT be used by variable fighters. Each missile is approximately the same size as a VF-1 Valkyrie. Variable fighters that require nuclear ordinance usually carry long range missiles.

3. ANTI-WARSHIP CANNONS (8): Northampton cruisers are also armed with anti-warship cannons similar to Zentraedi concealed laser cannons. Six of these lasers are mounted facing forward while two are mounted to the rear to attack enemies behind the ship. Like the main laser cannons the anti-warship cannons have only a limited arc of fire (15 degrees off centerline) and thus can only be used against ships to the front or rear of the frigate.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Assault
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Warship
RANGE: 50,000 miles
DAMAGE: 1D6x100 M.D. per shot
RATE OF FIRE: Each cannon can fire twice per melee. The cannons can fire individually or be combined with the heavy lasers to fire a single volley.
PAYLOAD: Unlimited.

4. MEDIUM MISSILE LAUNCHERS (6): For anti-aircraft defense the cruisers are armed with medium-range missile launchers set at key locations along the ship's hull. Each launcher contains 6 missile tubes allowing volleys of up to 6 missiles to be fired at a single target per launcher. Once depleted, the missile launchers are reloaded by an automated loading system that takes 15 seconds (one melee round) to reload all 8 missiles. Armor-piercing smart missiles are usually used to avoid chances of friendly fighters being shot down by the missiles.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Anti-Aircraft
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Warship
MISSILE TYPES: Any type of UN Spacy medium range missile can be used. Smart missiles are commonly used to avoid hitting friendly aircraft.
RANGE: Varies, typically 50 to 80 miles.
SPEED: Varies, typically 1600mph (2571kmph).
DAMAGE: Varies, typically 3d6x10 M.D.
BLAST RADIUS: Varies, typically 15 feet.
RATE OF FIRE: Volleys of 2, 4 or 6 missiles per launcher.
PAYLOAD: Each launcher holds 6 missiles. Once the missiles are expended the launcher is reloaded within 1 round via an automated system. The reload system holds 36 missiles per launcher.

SYSTEMS OF NOTE:
  • ELECTRONIC COUNTERMEASURES (ECM) "STEALTH" SYSTEMS: The Northampton cruisers are the smallest UN Spacy capital ships to be equipped with advanced ECM packages commonly referred to as "Stealth Systems". These systems disrupt enemy radar and tracking systems, making it difficult for them to lock onto the cruisers with weapons and to detect them at long range. The stealth systems give the Northampton a +3 to dodge, +2 to strike and +1 on initiative in combat WITH OTHER STARSHIPS ONLY. VFs and other close-range combat mecha are not affected by these systems. The cruiser's stealth systems will fail if the main engines are destroyed.
MECHA COMPLEMENT (STANDARD):
Alpha Fighters: 24 on active status
Beta Fighters: 12 on active status
Cyclones: 100 Cyclones of various types mostly for internal security
Support Shuttles: 2 shuttles for ship-to-ship transport are standard

NOTE: The Northampton cruisers have enough room to hold an additional squadron (12 fighters) if necessary, though the landing bays would be extremely cramped at that point.

NOTES:
  1. Depleting the MDC of the main body will put the Carrier out of commission. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck.
  2. Destroying the command tower will instantly kill the command staff and deprive the ship of all forms of long range communications, radar and targeting. The range and targeting capabilities of the secondary systems are equal to that of an Alpha fighter. The ship can still operate, but is at -3 on initiative, -3 to strike, and number of attacks per melee of the weapon systems are reduced by half. Destroying the main sensory array behind the command tower will have the same effect, but the command staff will not be killed instantly.
  3. Destroying the foredeck or the flight decks will greatly impair the carrier's ability to deploy and recover aircraft. Under normal operations the carrier can launch or recover up to 12 VFs per turn. If the foredeck is destroyed this number drops to 6, and each flight deck destroyed reduces this number by 3. If both the foredeck and the flight decks are destroyed the carrier can only launch or recover one aircraft every other turn.
  4. Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its secondary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND secondary engines will leave the ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the ship will crash (destruction of the main engines will render the antigravity system useless due to loss of power).

WEAPON SYSTEMS:
HEAVY MISSILE LAUNCHERS (6):
Ark Royal Escort Carriers are not designed for heavy starship-to-starship combat, instead relying on their fighter wings for protection and attack. However if necessary the carriers are armed with six missile launcher tubes for launching ICBM-like missiles at enemy ships. Resembling torpedo launchers, they are mounted on the front of the ship facing forward. The launchers contain long-range nuclear missiles and are usually used only during assaults and heavy combat.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Heavy Assault
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Warship
RANGE: 3,000 miles (4824 km)
SPEED: Mach 2+ (1340 mph/2140 kmph) in an atmosphere.
DAMAGE: 4D6x1000 M.D.
BLAST RADIUS: 3,000 feet (915 m)
RATE OF FIRE: Each launcher tube holds one missile and must be reloaded after firing. Reloading a launcher tube takes 1 minute (4 melee rounds). If loaded, all 6 tubes can fire at once for a volley of 6 nuclear missiles (!).
PAYLOAD: A typical battle carrier carries 30 missiles in storage that can be readied for firing in about 30 minutes. Additional missiles can be carried if deemed necessary, however.
NOTE: These missiles CANNOT be used by variable fighters. Each missile is approximately the same size as a combined Alpha/Beta Fighter. Variable fighters that require nuclear ordinance usually carry long range missiles.

MEDIUM MISSILE LAUNCHERS (12): In addition to the heavy missile launchers, the escort carriers are armed with twelve medium missile launchers which are primarily intended for anti-aircraft defense. Each launcher contains 8 missile tubes allowing volleys of up to 8 missiles to be fired at a single target per launcher. Once depleted, the missile launchers are reloaded by an automated loading system that takes 15 seconds (one melee round) to reload all 8 missiles. Armor-piercing smart missiles are usually used to avoid chances of friendly fighters being shot down by the missiles.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Anti-Aircraft
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Warship
MISSILE TYPES: Any type of UN Spacy medium range missile can be used. Smart missiles are commonly used to avoid hitting friendly aircraft.
RANGE: Varies, typically 60 miles (80.4 km).
SPEED: Varies, typically 1600mph (2571kmph).
DAMAGE: Varies, typically 3d6x10 M.D.
BLAST RADIUS: Varies, typically 15 feet.
RATE OF FIRE: Volleys of 2, 4, 6, or 8 missiles per launcher.
PAYLOAD: Each launcher holds 8 missiles. Once the missiles are expended the launcher is reloaded within 1 round via an automated system. The reload system holds 40 missiles per launcher.

RETRACTABLE LASER TURRETS (24): As a final line of defense the escort carrier is armed with 24 automated laser turrets that retract into the ship's hull when not in use. These short-range lasers are intended primarily for anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense, but can do moderate damage against smaller enemy spacecraft if they get too close. The lasers are located at key points along the spacecraft's hull. At most 4 lasers can be directed against a single target at any time.
PRIMARY PURPOSE: Anti-Missile
SECONDARY PURPOSE: Anti-Aircraft
RANGE: 30 miles (48.2 km) in an atmosphere. Double in space.
DAMAGE: 1D6x20 M.D. per shot
RATE OF FIRE: Equal to the controller's number of hand-to-hand attacks. If set on automatic each laser turret can fire up to 4 shots per round.
PAYLOAD: Unlimited.
NOTE: The lasers can be set on automatic during combat, during which time they have a +3 to strike due to their advanced tracking systems. The lasers tracking systems will target incoming missiles first and attacking mecha/aircraft second.

MECHACOMPLEMENT (STANDARD):
  • Alpha Fighters: 200 on active status. An additional 30 Alphas are stored in holding bays and can be readied within 2D6 hours.
  • Beta Fighters: 100 on active status. An additional 30 Betas are stored in holding bays and can be readied within 2D6 hours.
  • VF-1 Valkyries: 25 on active status. An additional 5 Valkyries are stored in holding bays and can be readied within 1d6 hours.
  • Raven Shuttles: 4 EW aircraft.
  • Horizon Shuttles: 2 can be docked internally
  • Logistics and Auxiliary: One Logistics squadron of 6 cargo and service shuttles.
  • Cyclones: 500 of various types, mostly for internal security
NOTE: The Ark Royal escort carriers have enough room to hold an additional 24 fighters if necessary, though the landing bays would be extremely cramped at that point.

*Destroying the midships hull section will destroy the command deck and eliminate all weapon controls, rendering the ship flyable but unable to fight.
**Destroying the aft hull section will destroy the engines, setting the ship adrift.
***Punching holes in the hull will cause the damage control system to seal off whatever compartment that has been compromised and exposed to vacuum.
****Destroying the command tower destroys the bridge. With the bridge destroyed, the ship can still be commanded from the central command deck.

Speed
Hover: Ikazuchi-class carriers are not well-suited for atmospheric operations, and their atmospheric performance is mostly limited to takeoff and landing.
Flying - Space: Cruising speed of 3,044 mph or Mach 4. Max speed is 6,850 mph or Mach 9.

Statistical Data
Length: 3,303 feet
Beam: 555 feet
Height: 580 feet
Weight: 1,400,000 tons fueled and provisioned

Weapon Systems
1. HPC-SC240 Triple-Barreled 240mm Particle Cannon Turrets (16): These are the primary anti-ship weapons on the Ikazuchi. They are mounted in armored turrets, eight on the dorsal side of the hull, eight on the ventral, and have a 360 degree rotation and 65 degree elevation.
Mega Damage: 1d4x100 MD per single blast
Range: 30 miles in an atmosphere, 240 miles in space.
Rate of Fire: Twice per melee round
Payload: Effectively Unlimited

2. HM-6 Heavy Missile Launchers (8): These missile launchers are mounted forward and aft on both the dorsal and ventral sides.
Mega Damage: Per long range missile type.
Range: Per long range missile type.
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of two, four or six.
Payload: Six in each of the eight armored magazines, 48 total. The ship can carry another 960 missiles in its hold.

3. MLWS-40 Rapid-Fire 40mm Point Defense Lasers (8): Mounted four to a side along the centerline of he ship, these turrets are excellent anti-mecha weapons and do a reasonable job against fast and nimble targets.
Mega Damage: 2d6x10 MD per blast
Range: 4,500 feet
Rate of Fire: Each blast counts as one attack. Attacks per melee are equal to those of the 'gunner' assigned to the weapon position, typically 4-6 attacks per melee round. Each laser is used to attack its own, independent target(s), and seldom work in tandem with the other three laser positions to fire upon the same target.
Payload: Effectively unlimited.
Bonus: +1 to Strike small opponents from man-sized mecha, fighters and shuttle craft.

4. Ram Prow: the bow and keel of the ship is reinforced to allow the Ikazuchi to make ramming attacks against other capital ships or space stations. The front hangar doors can then open to allow onboard mecha to attack the enemy through the pierced hull.
Mega Damage: 1d8x1000 MD
Rate of Fire: Aligning and executing a ram takes all of the helm's attacks for 12 melee rounds (three minutes)
1598150282402.png1598150299784.png

As the name implies the Three Star facilities are floating factories in space. The lower levels of the ship contain a complete refinery that can extract all necessary metals and raw materials from space debris suchas asteroids and comets. These materials are then raised to the core of the starship, which contains a complete manufacturing facility based on technology recovered from the Robotech Factory satellite captured by the RDF. The automated factory can manufacture almost any component, from miniaturized microchips to complete mecha. The factory can even manufacture from scratch capital starships such as an Arc Royal Class escort carrier or the Ikazuchi Class Command Cruiser. However this process can take months depending on the complexity of the starship. The Three Star facility is of course capable of conducting routine repair and maintenance on starships as well to prolong their active lifespan. A large beam is mounted from the rear of the ship which serves as a drydock for starship repair, refit, and construction.

The Three Star facilities are also capable of developing new products and weapons. The crew complement of the ship includes a trained engineering staff of over 1,000 along with the most advanced CADAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) systems available to the UEEF.

The largest drawback to the Three Star platforms is their lack of defensive systems. Unlike other UEEF ships they can only mate with a single Northampton-class stealth cruiser for protection. For this reason Three Stars are always escorted by a small fleet of Northamptons to protect them against attack and they are kept in secure, rear areas only.

Ship Type: Long Distance Mobile Manufacturing Platform
Class: Three Star Class
Crew (not including Stealth Cruiser): 15,000 total
Military Crew: 5,000
Civilian Crew: 10,000

MDC BY LOCATION:
(1) Main Body - 80,000
Rear Boom/Drydock Section - 40,000
(2) Command Tower/Communications Center (middle) - 5,000
Connection Joint/Engineering Section - 4,000
Forward Refining Scoops (2) - 6,000 each
(3) Main Engines/Power Plant (2) - 20,000 each
(3) Auxiliary Engines (4) - 2,500 each
Small Airlocks/Access Hatches (150) - 250 each
Main Airlocks(4) - 800
Outer Hull (per40ft area) - 120
Interior walls(per 20ft) - 20

NOTES:
1. Depleting the MDC of the main body will essentially destroy the facility. All internal systems will shut down, including life support and internal gravity. The factory ship itself will be an unsalvageable floating wreck, and any surviving crew must be rescued quickly or will die from asphyxiation as the remaining atmosphere drains into space. In addition, there is a 60% chance that the entire Three Star will explode due to the volatile chemicals and materials within, doing 1D6x1000 MD to everything in a 3 mile(4.8 km) radius from the ship.
2. Depleting the MDC of the command tower will kill the bridge crew of the vessel and deprive it of long range/hyperspace communications, radar and subspace sensors. The vessel can be commanded either from an auxiliary bridge near the center of the ship or from the Northampton stealth frigate attached to the platform.
3. Depleting the MDC of the main engines will force the ship to rely on its auxiliary engines. Depleting the MDC of the main engines AND auxiliary engines will leave the factory ship adrift in space. If in an atmosphere, the colony will crash (destruction of the main engines will render the antigravity system useless due to loss of power).

SPEEDS:
Speed (sublight): 0.16 speed of light (25,600 miles per second)
Speed (Auxiliary Drives): Mach 3
Space Fold: Range Unlimited (1 light year every 6 minutes)
Planet bound: Designed to land in a planetary ocean when necessary but not designed to maneuver in an atmosphere. Three Star vessels are NOT designed to land on the ground. If they do so the landing will inflict 3D6x1000 MD damage to the main body of the spacecraft (the Northampton docked to the ship will also suffer 3D6x1000 MD damage unless it detaches prior to landing).

Maximum Range: Unlimited (estimated 30 year life span)

STATISTICAL DATA:
Length (main body, excluding boom): 6,560 ft (2,000 m)
Height (main body): 4,100 ft (1,250 m)
Length (rear boom/drydock): 18,700 ft (5,700 m) Length(overall, including Stealth Frigate): 26,080 ft (7,950 m)
Weight: Approximately 210,000,000 tons (empty)

CONSTRUCTION CAPABILITIES:
The main purpose of the Three Star manufacturing platforms is to produce all parts, supplies, and materials the mission needs to operate. In general it can be assumed that Three Star ships are constantly busy around the clock producing a wide range of standard products. However there are times when the GM will need to know approximately how long it takes a Three Star facility to manufacture critical pieces of equipment (usually military in nature, such as mecha and starships).

The numbers below are intended to give the GM a rough estimate of how fast construction takes place aboard the Three Star. For each entry two values are listed. The first is the amount of time it takes the automated factories aboard the vessel to produce the item from scratch, and the second lists how many can be produced in a given period of time. The factory aboard the Three Star operates in an assembly line fashion so that multiple items can be constructed at the same time. This data assumes that the Three Star has an ample supply of asteroids and space debris available to it for raw materials.

ITEM MANUFACTURING TIME PRODUCTION RATE

Standard UN Spacy Combat Gear (Flight Suit plus Sidearm) 4 hours / 2,500 per week
Standard Variable Fighter (e.g. Alpha or Beta) 3 days / 36 per week
Small Starship (e.g. Garfish Class Troopship) 3 months / 4 per year
Large Starship (e.g. Ark Royal Escort Carrier/Ikazuchi Class) 10 months / 1 per year

MECHA COMPLEMENT (STANDARD):
NONE! However, the landing bays in Three Star vessels have enough room and resources to adequately support up to 4 squadrons (48 fighters)of VFs if necessary.

Under the command of Admiral Laventri Kutzuzov, the 3rd Armored Expeditionary Division is currently composed of:
Three Ikazuchi Class Command Carriers
--MacArthur
--John Stenis
--Lenin

One Three Star Manufacturing ship
--Atlas
Three Arc Royal Class Escort Carriers
--Arc Royal
--Bata Revo
--Uraga

Three Northampton Class Cruisers
--Northampton
--Ryoga
--Bunker Hill

and Nine Garfish Class Troopships
--Foxhound
--Alexander
--Battleaxe
--Ajax
--Rodger Young
--Richard Harding
--Dagger
--Discovery
--Sultan

Some Personal Weapons
CVR-3 Body Armor. This standard pilot and infantry body armor is a necessary component of the Cyclone. Without the armor, the cycle cannot turn into Battloid mode.
M.D.C. for male armor:
Helmet – 50
Arms (2) – 35
Legs (2) – 50
Main Body – 120

M.D.C. for female armor:
Helmet – 50
Arms (2) – 30
Legs (2) – 40
Main Body – 90

Gallant H-90 Modular Energy Pistol
This weapon is standard issue for pilots, officers, and vehicle crews. It is a 10mm laser weapon that uses an ingenious modular design to fill the role of both sidearm and rifle. As a side arm, the Gallant is a compact, semi-automatic weapon with the ability to deliver both M.D. as well as S.D.C. damage with just the flick of a switch. With the rifle stock attached, the Gallant becomes a long-range, precision laser rifle.
Weight: 2lbs as a pistol; 7lbs as a rifle
Range: Pistol: 800ft Rifle: 1600ft
S.D.C. Damage: 2d6 S.D.C. for a single shot, 5d6 S.D.C. for a three round burst; same for pistol and rifle. Only the range is different.
Mega-Damage: Pistol 1d6 M.D. for a single blast, 3d6 M.D. for a three round burst. Rifle: 2d6 M.D. for a single blast, 6d6 M.D. for a three round burst.
Payload: 2500 S.D.C. blasts, 830 pistol M.D. rounds, 415 rifle M.D. rounds

H-260 Valiant Laser Assault Rifle
The H-260 is a man-sized, heavy laser assault rifle issued to Cyclone pilots and heavy infantry troops. It is accurate, durable and capable of burst firing.
Weight: 12lbs
Range: 2,000 feet
Mega-Damage: 2d6 M.D. singe shot, and 4d6 M.D. for a three shot burst
Payload: Energy clip provides 415 single M.D. blasts or 138 bursts

M-55 Wolverine Assault Rifle
The Wolverine is a select fire assault rifle issued as the main infantry weapon to Marine platoons. The weapon fires either 5.56mm caseless ammunition or 5.56mm HEAP rounds. It also has an optional underbarrel 25mm grenade launcher.
Weight: 10lbs
Range: Rifle 2,000ft, Grenade Launcher 1,200 feet
S.D.C. Damage: 4d6 S.D.C. for a single rifle round, 1d4x10 S.D.C. for a three round burst
Mega-Damage: 2d4 M.D. for a single HEAP round or 4d4 M.D. for a three round burst of HEAP rounds
25mm Grenades do 4d6 M.D. to a 10 foot area
Payload: 96 round box magazine capable of 32 bursts of S.D.C. or HEAP rounds. The grenade launcher attachment carries 4 grenades. It takes 1 melee round to reload all four grenades.

BigBore Automatic Shotgun
The auto shotgun is a sturdy weapon that can be handled by most people with reasonable effectiveness. This gun uses a pair of alternating side by side barrels to maintain a high rate of fire and give it that intimidating double barrel shotgun look. Its low recoil is achieved with “floating” barrels that partially retract into the gun when fired to absorb some of the impact.
Weight: 12 lbs
Range: 300 feet
Mega Damage: 2d4 MD per single shell/bullet, 4d4 per double barreled blast. When using SDC rounds, the damage changes to 4d6 SDC per single shell for buckshot and 5d6 SDC for a solid slug per barrel. Double the damage when firing both barrels at once.
Rate of Fire: Each single or double barreled shot counts as one attack.
Payload: 18 round drum magazine.
Note: A normal PS of 18 or better is required to shoot the Automatic Shotgun. Those with a lower PS shoot with a -3 penalty to strike.


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, making this a useful weapon for the Cyclone to use.

M440 60mm Mortar
This is an indirect fire weapon that lobs 60mm shells one mile (1.6 km) away. While a staple of infantry for more than a century, this weapon proved to have little actual use in warfare utilizing Reflex Weaponry until the Invid invaded. Its mobility, ease of use and the fact that it does not rely on Protoculture make it an excellent weapon for the resistance, particularly when ambushing fixed targets, like Protoculture Farms or Invid checkpoints in controlled cities. The typical Invid appears to have some difficulty determining the source of indirect fire from non-Protoculture powered sources, giving mortar teams time to fire off several rounds before needing to move again.
The M440 is unique for a mortar design in that it comes as one piece, with the tripod built into the sides of the cannon, nor does it require a base plate. This makes set up as quick as three actions (two to deploy and one to set the range), and breaking it down is as simple as picking it up off the ground and folding the legs back against the launch tube. While the M440 can be fired by one person, it is most effective when used by a two-man team. W.P. Heavy Military Weapons is required to operate this mortar with any accuracy. Characters without this W.P. skill are -6 to strike.
Purpose: Anti-Fortification and Anti-Personnel.
Weight: 15 pounds (6.8 kg).
Range: One mile (1.6 km).
M.D.C.: Varies by shell type.
High Explosive (HE) shells: 1D6x10 M.D. to a 6 foot (1.8 m) blast radius;
Plasma Gel (PG) shells do 4D6 M.D. to an 8 foot (2.4 m) blast radius on impact and continue to bum for 1D4+1 melee rounds, doing 2D6 M.D. each round;
Smoke Cartridge shells used for screening, signaling or marking targets
Standard Illumination shells which launch powerful flares that light up a night battlefield
Protoculture Illumination shells which launch Protoculture flares that can be used to distract and bait the Invid.
Rate of Fire: It takes a lone operator two melee attacks to fire each shell, however a two-man team can launch five shells per melee round.
Payload: Each shell is dropped into the mortar immediately before firing. The ammo-bearer can carry a backpack with up to 15 shells. The shells are also often stored in crates of 60, particularly when the mortar is fired from the back of a flatbed truck or other vehicle which can quickly drive away after firing several rounds.
Note: The M440 was designed to fire 60mm shells to capitalize on limited production capacity when the UEEF was being built. While it is not technically compatible with other 60mm rockets commonly used in the UEEF, a weapons engineer or field munitions expert can modify the rockets to work as mortar shells for the M440.

RL-6 60mm Light Repeating Rocket Cannon
The RL-6 is a light anti-armor weapon that fires 60mm mini-missiles. It is usually issued to the VR-38 Light Cyclone as its primary weapon, but it can be used by standard infantry or as the handheld weapon for any of the Cyclones.
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.
Rate of Fire: One missile per attack
Payload: Six mini-missiles. Reloading with a pre-loaded magazine takes one melee action

D-40 Cobalt Limpet Mine
A high-explosive charge whose active ingredient is pressurized, powdered metal cobalt made for sabotage and demolition. The whole package 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 five 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: 5lbs
Mega Damage: 1d6x10 MD
Blast Radius: 20 feet

D-30 Cobalt Grenades
High explosive grenades that are essentially small, D-40 mines that can be tossed.
Weight: .5lbs
Mega Damage: 3d6 MD
Blast Radius: 15 feet

Zentraedi Mecha

The Tactical Battle Pod is the mainstay of the Zentraedi mecha forces. It is deployed as an attrition unit, using sheer force of numbers to overwhelm the enemy. It has a top speed on the ground of 175 miles per hour, making it much faster than any of the Earth mecha, and in space it has a flying speed of Mach 9. The Regult Battle Pod has a main body of only 125 points, but its firepower more than compensates for its weak armor. It comes in many varieties, including Light and Heavy Artillery models, and a Recon Pod to provide EWAR support.



The Glaug Officer Pod is the command unit of the Zentraedi forces. Its main body MDC is 225 points, and its heavy particle beam cannon on top has a range of over 4 miles.



The Nosjadeul-Ger Male Powered Armor is well armored by Zentraedi standards with 250 MDC, and it is flight capable in both an atmosphere and space, going from just over 400 mph to Mach 9. It is a rugged opponent.



Even more deadly than their male counterparts, the Queadluun-Rau Female Powered Armor is a missile carrier of no equal, packing a massive 124 mini missiles in four different launchers. With a MDC of 290 points, it is Mach 1 capable in an atmosphere and can hit over Mach 15 in space.



The Gnerl Aerospace Fighter is fast at Mach 18, and loaded with particle cannons a missiles, making it very deadly despite its thin armor of only 150 MDC.



Filling the role of an Command and Control asset, the Quel-Quallie 'Cyclops' is a large, three man ship capable of carrying a squad of Zentraedi foot soldiers into battle. With a main body MDC rating of 1,600 points, missiles and four heavy guns on the nose, it takes a lot to remove it from the fight.



The second largest ship of the Zentraedi fleet is the massive Nupetiet-Vergnitzs class flagship, eclipsed only by the moon sized Robotech Factories. The ship by itself possesses a massive amount of firepower, and a tremendous amount of troops. With 6,000 mechanized infantry, 2,500 Fighter Pods, 2,800 Regult Battle Pods, 120 Glaug Officer Pods, and 1,200 suits of Powered Armor, even one of these ships represent a major threat to the UEEF.
View attachment 400247

Smaller but much more numerous, the Thuverl-Salan class Destroyer is the most common ship in the Zentraedi fleet. Packed with 1,500 mechanized infantry, 250 Fighter Pods, 1,000 Regult Battle Pods, 50 Glaug Officer Pods, and 300 suits of Powered Armor, these ships are a match for one of our Ikazuchi class Command Carriers.

Robotech Masters

The Bioroid is the primary military unit of the Robotech Masters. They come color coded; Blue, Green and Red. They are quick and deadly, only lacking in any built-in flight capability. To make up for it, they ride into battle on their Hover Sleds, giving them excellent mobility in both air and space fights. The most common is the Blue with only 125 MDC. One Green is deployed as a command unit usually with 6-8 Blues. They are faster and better armored, having 180 MDC. The Reds are more maneuverable than the other two kinds of Bioroid at the expense of armor, having only 155 MDC and are deployed on average of 1 Red for 12-15 Blues. When on the Hover Sled, they can fly at 270 mph in an atmosphere, quadruple in space.



In order to be deployed in large numbers, the Bioroid Assault Carrier is used. It can carry 30-40 Bioroids on their hover sleds into the fight. It can hit a top speed of Mach 18 in space, and is equipped with heavy armor (1,200 MDC) and a variety of blasters.



The Robotech Master Mothership is a 4.5 mile long monstrosity of Robotechnology. Both warship and colony ship, it has a military complement of 35,000 Bioroids and has space for 500,000 civilian colonists. Very deadly.

For those that have not been in a Palladium game before, here is a quick rundown of the rules for combat and how I run things in the PbP system.

Everyone gets a number of attack actions that are listed on your sheet. As we go through the combat, I will keep track of how many actions you have used in the fight in a running chart that I will post with each person's action. It will look like this, and will count down the Initiative count for who is next up in the fight:

21 - Mark <====
18 - bad guy 1
15 - bad guy 2
12 - Steve
8 - Mary
7 - bad guy 3

In the example above, Mark has a initiative of 21 and goes first, and the arrow indicates that it is his turn. He declares his first action, and makes a to-hit roll. For sake of saving time, you can also post your damage at this point, and if you hit, I'll mark whichever target you hit with the damage. If you miss, I just disregard the damage to the enemy.

The to-hit roll is a d20. A natural 1-4 is a automatic miss, no matter how many bonuses you have, and a '1' is a fumble of some sort, and it can result in you having to clear a jammed weapon or some other effect that is appropriate for the scene and what you are using. On the flipside, a natural 20 is a Critical Strike, and will always hit and do double damage. Some martial arts and combat styles have an extended Critical Strike ranges of 19-20, or even an 18-20. I will do my best to remember which character has this available, but I am juggling a bunch of players here, and in the end, it falls upon you to keep track of what your character can do.

As everyone attacks, I mark off their actions:

21 - Mark [2]
18 - bad guy 1 [2]
15 - bad guy 2 [2]
12 - Steve [1] <====
8 - Mary [1]
7 - bad guy 3 [1]

This shows that everyone has had their first actions, and Mark and bad guys 1 and 2 have used their second attacks, and now Steve is up.

When you are attacked with a ranged weapon, you have the option to dodge the attack. The downside to this is that it uses one of your actions. It can burn through your actions quickly and if you don't watch out, you'll run out of available actions.

In melee combat and you are attacked, you have the added option to parry. The advantage to this is that it doesn't use an action, but Steve with his sword can't quite block a bullet or energy blast, so there are times when the only options are to dodge or let yourself get hit.

21 - Mark [2] <====
18 - bad guy 1 [2]
15 - bad guy 2 [2]
12 - Steve [3]
8 - Mary [2]
7 - bad guy 3 [2]

See how Steve has used up three of his actions and everyone else has only used two? He used one to dodge.

When everyone has used up all of their actions, that round is over and a new one begins.

The Invid War Machine

The Invid mecha can be split into two general categories: Organic and Inorganic. The Organic mecha have actual living pilots merged inside them, while the Inorganics are more like unmanned drones, with no living crew member.

The Organic Invid Mecha
1601261538747.png
The Scout is smaller than the Alpha Fighter, and is very fast and lightly armored. It lacks any ranged weapons, but do not underestimate them. They can swarm over a target and destroy it with their razor sharp claws.

1601261684711.png
The Armored Scout is a little larger than the Scout, and it does come with twin ion cannons on its back. It does have a little more armor than the Scout but not my much.

1601261882530.png
The Trooper is the general worker of the Invid. It also lacks ranged weapons, but is more armored than the Scout or Armored Scout.

The Shock Trooper is the workhorse of the Invid Organic mecha. It is armed with dual cannons on its back, and has a good amount of armor to it, but it does not compare to the Alpha Fighter.

The Enforcer is a flying artillery platform, and can be considered a command unit for the Invid forces.

The Soldier is much smaller than any of the other Invid, being almost human sized. It carries out the tasks of guard duty of prisoners, and general light work in the Invid Hive.

A size comparison of the Invid Organics to the Cyclone, Alpha and Beta.

The Organic Invid have one weakness across the board: The central sensor eye is very lightly armored compared to the main body of the mecha. A Called Shot to the eye can penetrate the pilot's compartment with relatively light damage done (20 to 50 MDC, depending on the mecha type)


Next in the Invid arsenal are the Inorganics. Most of these heavy hitters are ground-based, with only one capable of flight.

The Cougar is the smallest and fastest of the Inorganics, being about the size of a small horse. It lacks any ranged capability, but is fast enough to race forward and pounce on their target and tear it apart with claws and teeth. They typically run in packs.

The Crann is a reconnaissance unit. It is capable of detaching its arms to crawl around independently, and is able to transmit the images seen by the sensors on the hand back to the rest of the Invid.

The Scrim is a weapon of terror. It is frequently used to hold civilian populations hostage from the threat of the deadly nerve gas that it possesses in the two spiked globes located on its back. It is to be considered a high priority target.

The Odeon is a walking tank division, and possesses more armor than even the large Beta Fighter. It is nearly unstoppable, and carries a blaster pistol, giving it a powerful ranged attack capability.

The Garn is the only flight-capable Inorganic in the Invid arsenal. It is tough, fast, and has a rotary blaster located in its belly.

The Invid Fury is a artillery unit, capable of ground-to-orbit cannon fire. It is piloted by a Soldier like a standard mecha in a cockpit, making it hard to disable in the same way that the other 'Organic' mecha can be.

The Clam is the Invid's primary ground-to-orbit transport, capable of lifting upwards of 400 Shock Troopers or Armored Scouts into space to engage incoming targets.

The Invid live in 'hives' that come in two varieties: Dome and Stilt. Both are roughly spherical, but the Dome hive has half of its structure located underground, and the Stilt hive is held up by four to six large pylons, making ground approach very difficult. Another difference between the two designs is that the Dome hive is capable of erecting a powerful force field that is able to protect it from orbital bombardment and ground assault. Housing upwards of two to three thousand Invid, they represent a real threat to the region that they are in.

The Invid Brain is an organic computer that is housed in the heart of each hive, controlling and monitoring the Invid around it. Roughly the size of a Volkswagen car, it is a top priority target if ever encountered.
