DESCRIPTION

Following the Battle of Eshan, MandalArms was tasked with producing advanced battlefield weaponry suitable for engagements that took place in civilian areas, combining heavy firepower with precision guidance. The MB-22 is the solution.

 
Combining a solid durasteel deployment vehicle with advanced communications and sensor links, this integrated weapons system is capable of delivering targeted damage over a wide area, or focusing its power on a handful of targets or even a single target.

The weapon's payload is deployed at altitude, and the launch vehicle falls away. Each thermal detonator bomblet has a series of guide fins, making each detonator individually targetable. If dropped from sufficient altitude, they are capable of servicing targets over a wide area of several kilometers.

 
Each bomblet's payload is a baradium-based thermal detonator capable of generating a sphere of fusion-powered destruction utilizing a dial-a-yield option from one meter up to ten meters.
 
This accurate yet devastating weapon is also rather versatile, allowing a commander to choose the severity of the weapon's power, while carefully selecting the targets to avoid unnecessary casualties.

SETTING INFORMATION

  • Mine Name: Bandomeer Asteroid Concern
  • Material: Ionite
  • Location: Bandomeer
  • Affiliation: Mandalorian Empire
  • Size: Massive
  • Accessibility: Freely accessible through the public station, mining zones are restricted and dangerous.
  • Description: A pair of large rocky asteroids, one a well appointed asteroid base, with habitation and commercial enclaves as well as administration and transport hubs. The other is a specially designed industrial zone like no other. It is comprised primarily of organisms specifically designed and grown to purpose, allowing for the mining and transport of ionite without interference with standard technology.

POINTS OF INTEREST

BAC Complex - A steel and transparisteel clad asteroid base, housing the mine's administration, infrastructure, and oversight. Security is based here, as well as the other mechanisms required to maintain an operation of this magnitude. The mine's staff live and work in this complex, as it is far too dangerous to proceed into the fields with standard technology.
 
The Organoplex - An asteroid, hollowed out for purpose, containing an MBE Yammosk-analog that acts as a central controller for the mining operations. Here are where biots are regrown as replacements, and where biomass of damaged or dying biots is reabsorbed where necessary.

The Fields - Marked out by organophosphorous warning markers, the asteroid fields around Bandomeer are lit and clearly visible to space traffic, of which there is very little. Long known as an area to avoid, the fields are efficiently zoned, mined, and cleared by the organic creatures that carry out BAC's asteroid mining works.

SECURITY

Medium - Private security contracted to the mineworks itself provide both their own police force and handle perimiter security for the mining complex. The infrastructure is monitored by perimiter sensors and a holocam network. All security is located on the main BAC asteroid.
 
HISTORICAL INFORMATION
 
First concieved of after the events that saw Yasha Cadera become Mand'alor, such an ambitious project took time to come to fruition. Mandalore's terraforming project came first in priority and funding. 

The world was rejuvenated, for the most part, and this allowed other projects offworld to begin recieving funding that up to then had been dedicated to environmental renewal. A key strategic resource was beskar, conveniently located on the homeworld. After that, ionite was among the most valuable natural resources in Mandalorian space, and the highly secured Bandomeer system was reinforced.

Existing mining efforts had always existed on Bandomeer. Difficult and dangerous to mine, the miners always took heavy profits from their endeavours, when not being forced to toil for this or that imperial power. BAC took a new approach, utilizing entirely organic biots for the mining effort, removing entirely the risk of electronic interference. Likewise, the previously untapped riches of the system's asteroids were now open to plunder. Thus the Mandalorian efforts left the surface miners to eke out their own existence, while they took the lion's share, able to safely mine the system's asteroid riches.

A large rocky asteroid was cleared of ionite the old fashioned way, and converted for use as a headquarters, and habitation station. Over time, this station grew into the main commercial port for the BAC operation.

A second asteroid nearby was also cleared of ionite, and it was here that MandalBioEng went to work. A large yammosk-analog was installed within the asteroid which became known as the organoplex, as organisms large and small took up residence, each designed and grown for purpose. All were controlled from the central creature, which kept in telepathic contact with all.

The medium sized drones are the size of starfighters, and they moved about the asteroid fields like shepherds, utilizing dovin basals to redirect chunks of ionite-rich rock towards the huge corvette sized organisms, which hung in space like great balloons, and had long thick tentacles with hardened ball-like tips. These swung together, crushing the rock ever smaller. Dovin basals were used to move the dust-like material together as the large creatures moved on, and it was then that the smallest creatures went to work. As numerous as ants in a hive, and near as industrious, they divert streams of ionite or refuse to the requisite areas of the mining zone. The refuse dust is either discarded into waste zones, or diverted directly into the molecular furnaces of the HQ station when required to replenish resources.

The incredibly efficient system has access to quantities of ionite far in excess of what was previously thought possible, as the asteroid fields have long been considered too risky to mine. Much of the excess ionite mined is stockpiled by the Mandalorian Empire, with the true scale of the operation kept quiet, so as not to depress the price of the commodity on the galactic stage.

Appearing to the outside as a fairly normal mining operation, it is not until one gets close enough to see the living creatures in action that one realises this is a mining operation like no other.

Description:

Designed to deliver high-energy long range striking power onto the enemies of the Mandalorian Empire, the Bio-Artillery Beastie is armoured thickly, and armed with a heavy lava cannon much like those found on Yuuzhan Vong spacecraft.

 

Utilizing biots created by MBE it possesses similar qualities to the biots of the Yuuzhan Vong, but are completely new creations designed and produced by MandalBioEng, thus avoiding the known vulnerabilities of Yuuzhan Vong technology.

The creature is not sentient and must be directed telepathically, either by Yammosk-analog, MBE network or other telepathic means.
 
It is otherwise unable to function effectively without external direction. That weakness aside, it possesses incredibly dangerous firepower and can function effectively even within the effects of an EMP or Ionite-based disruption field.

Description
 
In the early days of the reign of Mandalor the Infernal, a derelict warship was refitted by Mandalorian engineers to be a unique flagship vessel named Defiant Mantis. Following the return of the former Warmaster Kaine Australis to Mandalorian space, his first act was to commission a class of warship based around the unique and powerful battleship.

The new vessel is packing some MandalArms and MandalMotors atech, most notably the molecular furnaces, allowing the vessel to take in debris and replenish its ammunition, and the MBE-1 unit which allows the Cadera-Class to link with the jam-resistant MBE comms and sensor network. In addition to the upgraded power and comms systems, the Cadera-Class sports a stygium cloaking device, allowing it to make a stealthy approach and get in close to the enemy, where it is at its most effective.

The design retains most of the Defiant Mantis's original systems, with a new, more advanced power system installed. MandalArms contribution was to alleviate one of the drawbacks of the original Alor-Class vessel; the need for ammunition resupply.
 
By installing state of the art molecular furnaces, droid manufacturing assembly lines, and production facilities, the refit design allows the vessel to replace not only its small arms, but missiles and heavy caliber ammunition as well, through intake of debris, asteroids, or any other material, which is broken down by the furnaces and repurposed at need.
 
The vessel packs some impressive armaments, including heavy and even super-heavy mass driver cannons, capable of launching large shells at high velocity, these are even larger than the heavy mass drivers seen on other vessels in this size class, truly devastating weapons.
 
Capable of laying waste to entire sections of space, and replenishing her own warstocks, this Battleship can fight forever, or near enough as makes no matter. It is a special ship among a very special class.
