Anti-Armour

T1 Walker - Damage Dealer - Light Armour – Fast
Lancers first saw production during the Century War with the Xziphid Hegemony in response to demands for anti-armour capable of keeping up with Peacekeepers. Stripped of heavy plating, Lancers rely on Peacekeeper shields in order to safely use their powerful Mark 4 Energy Cannons.

Anti-Air

T1 Walker - Anti-Air - Fast
An old design, Patriots enable ground forces to reach objectives unmolested by aerial bombardment. Armed with heavy anti-air Sparrow missiles, they are able to quickly bring down priority threats.

Purger

Purger

Shock

T1 Walker - Jumps Up cliffs - AOE - Suicide Bomb – Shield Penetration - Fast
The Purger is based on experimental research abandoned due to contraventions of various Machine Welfare Acts. However, after confirmed existence of MLA Boom bots the project was quickly resumed with the addition of rocket-packs for leaping up cliffs and over short distances.

Investigator

Investigator

Recon

T1 Walker - Jumps Up cliffs - Deployed Stealth - Deployable Radar - Fragile - Fast
Using a modified spider chassis, the Investigator buries itself in the ground and deploys sensitive radar equipment to detect nearby enemies. Although detectable by radar, trials proved so effective that some of the initial prototypes have still not been found.

Enforcer

Riot Control

T2 Walker - Damage Dealer - Rapid Fire - Versatile
An efficient yet dated weapons platform, the Enforcer gained popularity with Legion Commanders for its ability to reliably and rapidly deploy where fire superiority is required. It’s dual gatling guns are particularly effective against swarms of light bots.

Monstrosity

Heavy Assault

T2 Walker - Damage Soaker - Long Range - Heavy Armour - Slow
A walking fortress capable of breaching the heaviest defences, the Monstrosity proved its worth as a powerful base of supporting firepower in both the Century and Pro-Com Wars. Able to ward off Long Ranged harassing units with the Behemoth energy cannon, its iconic silhouette causes enemies to recalculate their chances of survival.

Orbweaver

Orbweaver

Adv Anti-Air

T2 Walker - AOE - Anti-Air - Shield Penetration
Orbweavers are a new design rushed into production after contact with abnormally large numbers of MLA aircraft. In particular during intense fighting for the planet Meso, vast swarms of planes were reportedly so large that they blotted out the sun and reduced solar collection efficiency by 92.4%.

Miniman

Miniman

Siege

T2 Walker - AOE - Time Delay Bombs - Long Range - Fragile - Slow
Often regarded as the ugly duckling, the Miniman has roots in pragmatism. Initially designated a heavy artillery boat, during testing the enormous recoil of its 600mm guns had an unfortunate tendency to cause it to capsize. An alternative chassis was created with 4 legs for added stability when firing its time delayed Neutron Bombs in prolonged sieges.

Necromancer

Siege

T2 Walker - Amphibious - AOE - Spawns Purgers - Long Range - Explodes
The Necromancer is the ultimate culmination of the Purger Project. Though yet to be battlefield tested, this latest design promises never-before-seen efficiencies by allowing on demand creation of Purgers at the frontline. Initial trials also revealed that leaving the power source unshielded doubled its utility as a giant walking bomb.

Praetorian

Support

T2 Walker - Build - Support Commander - Fast
Praetorians were an attempt by Legion Commanders to create in their own image and replace growing losses. Though not for lack of effort or resource, the secrets of artificial consciousness so far remain as mysterious as the disappearance of the Progenitors. Only a shadow with limited autonomy, Praetorians are particularly useful for establishing operational bases without the usual associated risks posed to a Commander.
