The Tower mecha represents an a level of engineering and design that was, until recently, thought impossible. Contact with the Metaverse proved otherwise and every mecha producer began to work on designs for a mecha of greater than 100 tons. It came as no surprise that NovaStar was the first to bring one of these behemoth’s to the marketplace.

General Nova and his team at NovaStar began design work on the Tower as soon as they first became aware of the possibility a functional mecha weighing over 100 tons could indeed become a reality. With this breakthrough NovaStar proved to be the definition of cutting edge mecha technology.

The {Fortress} A.I. constructed for the tower mecha is a relatively uncomplex design when compared on paper to models used in smaller mecha. But appearances can be deceiving. The {Fortress} excels when meshed with Flame weapons. Fully upgraded the A.I. will boost the projected damage of such weaponry by 50% of expected output. Projectile weapons also receive a considerable boost the {Fortress}, preliminary testing shows a 35% greater yield to armor damage when using cannons. The flexibility of the {Fortress}’s design is what gives it its greatest punch. With six ports available for the addition of custom equipment the Tower can be configured for a variety of missions.

Powering the Tower is a Thunderstorm Cell system which is an upgraded and enlarged version of the Storm Cell plant that powers the Typhoon mecha. The Thunderstorm houses two massive banks of overload capacitors that are tied directly to the weapons systems. At full upgrade a pilot can expect to see a double powered 2X salvo on neatly one third of shots fired. In addition, 20% of salvo’s will receive a tri-power 3X boost to output.

As with all mecha, the larger they are the slower they go. While the Tower comes off the assembly line a bit ungainly a majority of the deficit in combat speed is offset by upgrades to the power plant.

Defensively the Tower is heavily protected from many types of attacks. Area attacks like Splash and Trample are reduced by 70% by way of electronic signal generators that project a false positive target lock to opposing mecha’s A.I. Multiple target attacks using Fork and Wide Fork are also greatly reduced in effectiveness in much the same way. These attacks can be reduced by up to 70% simply because an enemy pilot will be fooled into targeting a nearby rock formation rather than the mecha. The Chassis mounts several shield pods that will protect against any weapons fire that does strike the Tower. In addition, the ablative armor reduces the effectiveness of Laser weaponry by 40% when fully upgraded and a point defense system will negate up 20% of all incoming missile fire. The Chassis provides slots for six additional equipment modules as well as seven ports for heavy shield pods to further protect the mecha.

The Tower mecha represents a new era in super heavy mecha combat. The Mercenary Clans as well as the militaries of the Major and Minor powers are developing new tactics and strategies to include this new class of fighting machine into their operations.
