"We can't even hit that thing!"
-Overheard during a raid on a pirate stronghold.
In all conflicts, support units must be fast. Hovertanks can easily reach any position, but in urban combat they are vulnerable. We needed a unit to eliminate enemies entrenched in buildings and make sure our infantry can easily take and hold them. The Cinquedea is a combat mech made to do this and more, thanks to its two plasma blasters, MLRS system, combat claws and jump pack.
Core: 1x M2 Fusion Core
Weapons: 2x M1 Plasma Blasters, 300 rpm, ; 2x M1 MLRS; 2x M1 Combat Claw
Shields: 1x M2 Plasma Protection System
Misc.: M1 Jump Pack, prototype fusion engine powered by the fusion core. Powerful enough to make the mech hover and move freely for 1 minute without draining the shields. It can also use the energy needed for that 1 minute of hovering to perform an emergency escape manoeuvre, sending it flying in the air fast enough to fall back and avoid enemy fire.
Supplies: 1x AR-2 Defender, 1x P-1 Predator, 3x 5l water bottles, 10 Standard Rations
