M.A.C. combat robot
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.
It is heavily armoured, packing :
- 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 ?).
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.
