Heavy Track Unit Part Card
This is a premium Techniconica Part Card which will enable you to play the game of Techniconica or expand your existing collection of Part.
Each card is printed on thick card stock and should, with care, last a long time and serve you well in your battles!
Each Card represents a single piece of a Mech and each card does a specific job for your Mech. Power Plants generate power, Cockpits house the pilot, Weapons are used to fight with and Locomotors are used to give your Mechs mobility.
This part is a Locomotor type card and they form the means that a Mech is able to move around the battlefield. Faster locomotors typically are lighter armoured and less able to carry heavier Mechs whereas heavier duty Locomotors can carry more, but are slower on the battlefield..
This part has a Weight of 0, a Power Consumption of 2 as well an Armour rating of 6 and a Damage Threshold of 2. For a view a detailed breakdown of the cards stats, click here.
Caterpillar track units have been around since before the launch of the Generation ships, and although they saw limited use on the Generational ships themselves, they have undergone a kind of revival of late, due to their numerous advantages over other locomotion types.
They can produce "squat" Mechs and that they can traverse difficult terrain with relative ease, although they have trouble going down sharp inclines and Mech pilots must be aware of their Mechs specific centre of gravity when attempting to out manoeuvre their opponents in rough terrain.
The Heavy Tracked unit is perhaps one of the bigger chassis available. Few industrial factories have the heavy equipment necessary to assemble a full Heavy Track unit - although there are numerous recovered units in circulation in the second hand market.
The tracked units themselves feature self-aligning tracks and sport heavy gauge alloyed tracks.
Their internal drives are contained within armoured body of the track unit itself and are thus protected by the thick outer armour.
