OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

  • Intent:  A defensive technology for Mandalorian capital ships
  • Image Source: Kaine - (Video from TV Show Babylon 5: Warner Brothers)
  • Canon Link:  None
  • Primary Source: None

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Magnetic Accelerator
  • Size:  Large
  • Weight: Heavy
  • Ammunition Type: Neutronium Spheres
  • Ammunition Capacity: 250
  • Reload Speed: Very Slow
  • Effective Range: Average
  • Rate of Fire: Very High
  • Stopping Power:  Average
  • Recoil: Very High

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Inbuilt fire control computer specially designed to calculate trajectory of interceptor rounds

Strengths:

  • Very capable defensive unit able to intercept a variety of enemy capital ship weapons prior to impact

Weaknesses:

  • Ineffective at protecting vessels other than its own due to the difficulty of intercepting fire
  • Useless against beam weapons or other direct fire weaponry
  • Requires similar space and power to an offensive weapon but provides no offensive capacity

DESCRIPTION

With much of the focus of MandalArms' output on starships and offensive weaponry, the production of viable defensive technolgies was a little slower in progress. Advances in targeting and magnetic accelerators however, made the MAI-1 unit possible, and it indeed borrows heavily from more aggressive railgun and gauss weapon designs; but it is in no way an offensive weapon, purely defensive.

Housed in a solid turret with four launchers arrayed around a central box, the MAI-1 unit is designed to repel enemy fire by intercepting it prior to impact by means of high velocity neutronium spheres, chosen for their density. The muzzle speed and therefore the range is far lower than that of an offensive weapon, but the payloads are much larger and denser, particularly effective at intercepting energy projectiles and mass driver rounds. With an inbuilt feed system, the turret can fire rapidly and service up to two hundred fifty incoming projectiles before requiring downtime for reload. As one MandalArms engineer put it, 'cover a ship in these, and you won't need shabla shields', which was the intent of the design.

The unit is too large and powerful for smaller vessels, only vessels 500m in length would be able to mount the MAI-1. It has significant power requirements, thirsty as railguns can be, and does have a finite ammunition supply. That said, it is still a very effective protective technology, and is hoped to soon be the pride of MandalArms.

DESCRIPTION
 
When the order came through, from the Warmaster, naturally, for the largest War Droid that the Mandalorian Empire had ever seen, groans were heard all around MandalArms' R&D and other Empire corporations.

Luckily for them, they had an answer, get a giant droid, and strap weapons to it. Of course, the plan took a little more detail and effort than that, especially in the refitting, but soon enough, the eggheads had themselves a salvaged EVS droid, which stood at forty stories and was nearly the size of a skyscraper.

They kept the six huge legs, and the sensory clusters of the original droid, to it, they added armour plating, DION Fiber to protect against electrical surges and EMP or Ionic attack, and point defence weaponry to try and protect the huge, lumbering thing from aerial attack.
 
Also retained were the hundreds of retractable collector arms underneath, which could cut and scoop rubble and wreckage and anything else to hand up and into the processing mouths and molecular furnaces and atomic incinerators beyond.
 
Bessie is capable of producing a wealth of construction materials, including repair parts for herself, though this can only be done if the vehicle is completely immobile and with all primary systems shut down. Not a mode to be used anywhere dangerous, as Bessie is incredibly vulnerable if repairing.
 
The vehicle's skeleton crew and gunnery teams are assisted by a state-of-the-art Mirdimorut Droid Brain, which learns, and is much much more capable than the original inferior technology, giving Bessie a mind of her own, after a fashion.

Whether stomping an enemy city, rebuilding a friendly one, or simply scaring the wits out of some poor planet of tribals, Bessie most certainly does not kneel.


MBE Superluminal BioDrive

MBE Superluminal BioDrive

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Utilizes the same coordination principles as a villip choir to unite an array of dovin basals to provide fast hyperspace travel

Strengths:

  • Able to propel a vessel at extremely fast hyperspace velocity
  • Requires nutrition rather than fuel

Weaknesses:

  • Very susceptible to damage and malfunction, any loss of coordination will cause the drive to fail
  • Sudden and unexpected reversion to realspace while in operation such as an interdiction field will kill the organic components, destroying the drive

DESCRIPTION

Following the resounding success of their efforts in communication and sensor biotechnology as well as materials science, with the MBE and Spidersilk projects; MandalBioEng lent their talents towards other avenues. Breakthroughs were made in experiments with dovin basals in the areas of coordination and output.

Field tests using arrays of dovin basals for superluminal travel allowed MBE scientists to get a picture of what was possible using the bio-organic approach. The solution was more complex than simply adding more dovin basals, they had to be coordinated precisely, and attempts to marry them with more traditional technology proved troublesome. An organic solution was required, and a fully bio-engineered brain, similar to a small yammosk, was the answer. Coordinated this way by nerves instead of circuits, the organic unit can instinctively feel any imperfections in the harmony of the dovin basal 'choir', and correct instantly, allowing the array to function acceptably.

Taking up much the same amount of mass and space as a traditional technical hyperdrive, the advances in speed are where the MBH excels. The unit was given a Hyperdrive Classification of 0.25, faster than anything currently available in the Mandalorian Empire.

DESCRIPTION
 

Master crafted in the Warmaster's Forge by the hand of Kaine himself, this set of armour is both unique and could almost be classed as an artifact, such is its value and beauty. Designed for the being known to the galaxy as Mythos, it is finished in finest Aurodium, a beautiful and valuable outer layer, belying the advanced materials science, technology and forging experience that went into the full product.

The armour itself is songsteel, light and durable. Added to the songsteel is a layer of ballistic gel to cushion any kinetic impacts, and DION fiber, which aids in channeling any excess energy to the capacitors and away from the user's skin. Under the gel is an armorweave bodysuit, giving the user maxiumum protection while maintaining a minimal weight, to allow for Mythos to use his agility in combat.

Accoutrements to the armour mimic Mythos' Force abilities, sonic emitters in the gauntlets, repulsor boots, and a forearm mounted ARC caster to funnel and weaponize any incoming electrical damage. When Mythos steps onto the battlefield, he does so with the finest of protective gear, in the finest traditions of Mandalorian smiths the galaxy over.

This level of finery is worthy of such a renowned and masterful being, and speaks volumes to anyone who sees it about his prowess and ability. If they are not blinded by the reflected light of all that aurodium, that is.


Fight with blood, fight with steel, die with honour, never kneel.

Ba'gedet'ye Reclamation Facility - Currently Orbiting Myrkr

The Warmaster's Goran

 

The Facility's rounds of the Mandalorian Empire had brought it to the Myrkr system. Battle debris and wreckage from the past conflicts here were slowly but surely reclaimed by the gargantuan facility as it swept around the planet's orbit, taking in solid materials and breaking them down.

Inside the facility, deep in its bowels, was the Warmaster's Forge. A small crew was on duty with Kaine, and his visitors, as they took in the fabrication facilities, hard at work.

bryan-norton-anthem-upgradeshop-bryan-no

 

Kaine led the small party along to where he'd set up a display of Laminamium sheeting, connected to its ingot replacement technologies. On a table sat his Cherub III heavy pistol. Kaine picked it up, and loaded it.

You can see here the Laminamium sheeting. Watch this.

Without hesitation, Kaine fired six shots, emptying the chamber, and blasted six neat holes in the sheet. Immediately, the metal began to self-repair, and very quickly, the sheet was whole again.

Kaine grinned. 

Nice eh?

The idea here is to create an armour set that can repair itself on the battlefield. This would give a senior commander a full extra layer of protection. Or be suitable for a larger being to wear as their primary armour set. It's not going to be small.

Who wants in?
