UM-BA-1 UrbanArmor
« on: 16 October 2020, 21:36:13 »
An urbanmech inspired heavy battlearmor meant to serve as area deterrent and support roles in an infantry/BA force.

would use a cockpit control set up similar to the Kanazuchi. would resemble an  urbanmech with a cylindrical domed torso, with a Heavy recoilless rifle in one arm, and an antipersonnel mount above a spotlight in the other arm. the body includes additional sensors. it is slow moving on the ground but has a boosted jump capacity to get around in built up areas.

Clan Jade Falcon was there first ...

The Spheroid Pacification Suit, aka the "Urbanmental". Designed for use by spheroids who tested loyal to the Clan, the suit cut many corners in order to provide a suit of battle armour which could be used by those without the skill or genetic legacy of Clan elemental warriors. Armless, and armed with a recoilless rifle and antipersonnel weapon, the suit did have fireproof armour (to protect against molotovs, and flame fougasses), the suit had potential but proved too expensive for wide deployment.
