Technical and Historical Notes

 

An experimental commander's use mobile armor, the ZMT-A30S Birknau prototype is assigned to Arbeo Pippiniden of BESPA's Motorad Fleet. With exceptional sensor and communications equipment, combined with a high mobility that allows its pilot to move around all areas of battle, the Birknau is well-suited as a field commander's unit. Its armament is rather simple: a pair of mega particle guns and a pair of mega machine cannons for ranged combat, and four claw arms for close combat. However, Pippiniden and his mobile armor never get to see any action during the Zanscare War - he and the Birknau both fall to friendly fire (of a sort) as he is attempting to launch from his flagship.
