One of the greatest breakthroughs in computer technology in the now mythical ancient digital age was the parallel processor. While a mainstay of system architecture today, it was a revolutionary thought to split the processing load into multiple streams, rather than speeding the main processor. Frustrated with the targeting computer limitations involved in Assault mechs larger number of weapons, designers at Star Factories decided to rethink targeting altogether.

Parallax in science is defined as the apparent difference in position from two points of view. The Parallax Targeting System has four linked computers that independently process all targeting information to calculate tactical action. While initially slower than conventional targeting, the parallax effect immediately produces the chance of a deadly triple damage hit, as well as spreading the damage through both trample and splash to adjacent or following mecha.

As the targeting system develops, it moves from being able to spread damage beyond the main target, to being able to target independently multiple opponents with fork and eventually wide fork abilities.

Rookie pilots have reported problems with schizophrenia from being linked to a Machine Intelligence Unit that is sharing several simultaneous points of view; but elite pilots love it, once they can process the multiple viewpoints. The ability of the Torrent to engage multiple targets at once, while retaining the focus needed for targeting specific weak points for multiple times damage hits, is priceless.

Due to the dispersed nature of the Parallax system, it is easily and quickly upgraded with new equipment and enhancements. Surprisingly easy to maintain, its redundant systems also enable it to retain nearly full function even after sustaining heavy damage. For this reason, the mech is often favored by commanders of heavy lances, as they can retain full command and control, even in the fiercest fighting.

Equipped with a powerful mix of fire, ice, laser, and missile weapons, the standard Torrent weapons compliment the targeting advantages offered by its processor systems, making them each almost as effective as on mecha built around that one class of weapon. Even knowing its capabilities, commanders find it almost impossible to defend against all the advantages of this deadly mecha.
