Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This humanoid combat mecha  was spotted in a 1996 issue of Azrael.

It looked like the sort of thing gamemasters would want stats for.


Powers & Abilities

A M.A.C. unit is about 2.5m tall, and well-armoured. It can wirelessly dialogue with other systems on the battlefield, such as sensors.

M.A.C. combat robot (DC Comics) vs. Azrael

It is heavily armoured, packing :

  • Flamethrowers.
  • Multiple .50 machineguns loaded with APEX rounds.
  • Missiles of an unrevealed kind (perhaps similar to those used by the ED-209 unit in Robocop, since the two present similarities).
  • At least one gas dispenser able to disgorge neurotoxic gas or mace.
  • And unrevealed means of deploying napalm (built-in mortar ?).

History

M.A.C. stands from Microwave Activational Combatter. It’s a terrible acronym, but may have been intended as a marketing reference to the “Mac” prototype of G.I. Robot back during World War Two.

A M.A.C. prototype was developed by Carleton LeHah’s weapons labs for the country of Kravia. The prototype was deployed against Azrael (Jean-Paul Valley). The superhumanly fast Azrael outmaneuvered the mecha and had it step into a minefield, promptly defeating it.
