  • Carbonite Payload

Strengths:

  • Very effective against targets over a wide area

Weaknesses:

  • Indiscriminate - will encase any friendly units in the blast zone
  • Too heavy to be dropped by fighter

DESCRIPTION

One of MandalArms' recent key projects was an effective battlefield weapon to neutralize enemy troops without slaughtering them wholesale. The answer was the joint MandalArms/MandalBioEng effort that produced the BI-2.

 
Combining a large Cryo-Ban explosive with a thick reservoir of highly pressurized carbonite shell It utilizes bioorganic circuitry for maximum efficiency, this rare and devastating weapon is capable of containing an area of enemy. The carbonite expands rapidly, spread by the icy blast wave over a wide area, hardening rapidly and encasing its targets.

The hardened carbonite can be cut by lightsaber or other materials as regular carbonite, but not quickly, easily, or safely, if one is trapped within it.

The blast yield gives an effective radius of total encasement depth of three meters out to about ten meters in all directions from the blast point, assuming a prime detonation altitude of five meters, and splash damage predicted out to about another ten meters, which is also the effective maximum range of the carbonite dispersal effect.

 
Due to the bomb's weight and size, this needs to be deployed by a heavier craft than a starfighter, or placed for ground detonation.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

 STANDARD FEATURES

ADVANCED SYSTEMS

Strengths:

  • Heavy firepower, especially in the forward quarter
  • Decent straight-line speed for its class

Weaknesses:

  • Vulnerable at the rear and at the engines due to a lack of heavy armour and weaker turret defences
  • Lacks any sort of maneuverability, which only gets worse the faster she goes

Description:

Designed as a new class of capital vessel, part of a series designed by MandalArms for the Republic, this heavily armed vessel is a solid cruiser class, built for speed and heavy firepower.

 
Like her counterpart, the larger Republic Destroyer, she lacks heavy armour plating and advanced shielding, sacrificing those for a larger, more powerful engine plant and higher straight line speed.

 
The framework of the vessel, like many of the newer MandalArms designs, is honeycombed, and set with Turadium blast doors, allowing the vessel to shut off damaged sections quickly and effectively, a must when packing such colossal external firepower.

No expense was spared in arming the vessel, with anti-starfighter turrets dotting the unusually composed but solid and dense Duravlex/Farium hull, able to deal doom to anyone unfortunate enough to come alongside. 
Durinium was used to line the inside of the hull, to make enemy sensor scans of the interior much more difficult.
 
The bow is constructed of dense and resilient Zal Alloy, housing the powerful Fuzz Ray primary weapon. Each wingtip packs a plasma beam, and on the dorsal and ventral sides, a formidable antimatter cannon stands ready to deal death to the enemies of the Republic.

This heavy cruser carries troops and battle droids among her crew complement, though she lacks fighter carrying capability.

  • MBE-1 can be identified and jammed by an enemy gravitic amplitude modulator

DESCRIPTION

Originally designed and laid down as one of MandalArms' feature projects, the T-101 heavy tank was a testament to Mandalorian engineering. Built extremely tough, with capable short range firepower, it was not a craft enemy forces want to meet at close range.

 
The Clan's advanced model, the T-102, packs increased firepower in the main guns, and smaller caliber, more efficient, point defence weaponry. With space at a premium, the crew of eight are still cramped, and though the vehicle can be operated with a skeleton crew of four, combat effectiveness is more than halved.

As with the original, she has a slow approach giving enemy forces ample time to flee or dig in. The T-102 hits hard, and keeps on hitting, taking what comes its way. The best defence is be somewhere else.


MandalArms Manda II-Class Fighter

  • Primary Source: None

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

  • Manufacturer: MandalArms
  • Affiliation: Clan Australis (20 numbered squadrons)
  • Model: SRF-2
  • ProductionLimited
  • Material: Duraplast, Reflec, Agrinium, Dallorian Alloy, Circuitry

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Droid Starfighter
  • Length: 15 meters
  • Width: 10 meters
  • Height: 3.8 meters
  • Armament: High
    Five Explosive Warheads (AntimatterBaradiumCoaxiumGravityPlasma)
  • DefensesVery Low
    Duraplast Hull

  • Speed Rating Moderate
  • Hyperdrive Class Very High : 0.25

STANDARD FEATURES

  • Communications Array
  • Navigation System
  • Sensor Suite
  • Droid pilot

ADVANCED SYSTEMS

Strengths:

  • Reasonably fast at sublight, blindingly fast through hyperspace thanks to the advanced biodrive
  • MBE-2 allows access to jam resistant comms and sensor network
  • Reflec coating and Tibanna-x exhaust make this craft hard to track
  • Extensive and heavy explosive payload with solid damage potential

Weaknesses:

  • Weak armor means it is susceptible to interception fire
  • Unshielded and unable to resist physical countermeasures
  • MBE-2 sensors can be jammed if identified by an enemy gravitic amplitude modulator
  • No armaments other than the explosive warheads

DESCRIPTION: 

Designed as a successor to previous droid fighter designs, the Manda-class, the final design of the craft resembled more of a rocket bomb. The craft is sleek, maneuverable and packs a considerable punch. No pilot would wish to climb into one of the things; so a droid pilot is standard fare. With the independence of Clan Australis, this design was updated for a new production run.

As with the original model, the hull is light, duraplast, just strong enough to hold the engines and explosives and droid pilot together, it can stand little to no punishment from external sources, weight being a primary concern. This craft's defence is speed and surprise, no shields would fit; room was needed for engines, thrusters, and the advanced bio-hyperdrive.

Designed to deploy in squadron formations, with a dozen of the attack craft concentrating on large capital ships, an attack from these deadly strike fighters is something to be avoided. They make for soft targets themselves, but if they get where they're going, it's not a great result for the target. The original Manda-Class had a selectable arsenal of weapons, the Manda-II eschews subletly and retains all the options in one deadly combination package, with five heavy warheads, each a different type. Each warhead is contained in one of the craft's spike-like wings, with the heavy drive pod adjacent to the cockpit containing the fifth.

The Manda II-class is a solid addition to the Australis arsenal, providing commanders with a ranged punch in void combat, and a nasty surprise for enemy fleets.


LAAT/X

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

  • Intent: An advanced attack/transport craft
  • Image Source: Link
  • Canon Link: None
  • Primary Source: None

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Airspeeder
  • Role: Assault Transport
  • SizeLarge
  • WeightHeavy
  • Minimum Crew: 0
  • Optimal Crew: 4
  • Propulsion: Repulsorlift
  • SpeedFast
  • Maneuverability: Average
  • ArmamentHigh
    2 LR1K Sonic Cannons (nose turrets)
  • Defenses: Low 
    Durasteel Hull
  • Squadron CountLow : 8
  • Passenger Capacity: 20
  • Cargo CapacityAverage

SPECIAL FEATURES

Strengths:

  • Dual sonic cannons pack an incredible punch
  • Decent straight line speed

Weaknesses:

  • No Shields

DESCRIPTION:
 
Unlike many MandalArms designs, the LAAT-X was not designed from the ground up by the company, but instead, wholely re-engineered from the ancient model, into a modern, state of the art advanced transport and attack craft.

Constructed with a sturdy durasteel frame, lined with sensor baffling Durinium, and packed inside with plenty of room for troops and cargo, she retains a decent straight line speed for such a heavy craft, thanks to her powerful repulsorlift arrays.
 
In addition to this load, there is a crew of pilot, navigator and two gunners, though the craft is capable of flying without a flight crew, with a droid brain able to fly and fight the craft in a basic manner if the need arises.

 

Her weapons loadout consists of the two large and devastating sonic cannons mounted in a pair of ball turrets in the nose. These powerful turrets are the craft's only armament, and pack a hell of a punch to troops on the ground, and anything else in the way of their hellish sonic blast.

The LAAT-X is MandalArms' spin on the classic Republic gunship, fast, effective, and able to get the job done time and again, with heavy support fire for the boots on the ground.
