Ugh...this one! I forgot about this one! Just a short set for now. I'll be releasing a pretty cool one later.
About this creation
To commemorate their millionth anniversary of conquering the universe, Imperial High Command determined that their ageing MID mk VIII was due for replacement. In particular, the Neo-Void wanted a mech suitable for policing their vulnerable mid-outer territories, where several key shipyards and production companies were situated. Enormous strides had been made in the Neo-Void’s technology since the inception of the mk VIII. The MID mk X, codenamed “Devourer” was created as another of the replacements of the mk VIII.
Developed simultaneously alongside the mk IX the mk X was also a large improvement over the mk VIII. Created as a combat capable model, rather than a suppression unit, it packed nearly four times the firepower of the mk IX. Like the IX, the mk X was small in size, but carried a high output ultra-compact thermonuclear fusion reactor. It also sported more powerful flight-capable thermonuclear rocket engines, making it suitable for assault roles.
The most obvious difference between the mk IX and the X was its reverse articulated legs and squat profile, more reminiscent of the older MID mk IVs. The X’s design was implemented to give it greater mobility on the ground, and higher stability on uneven surfaces, such as asteroids.
The armor was upgraded to a heavier-gauge titanium-X alloy, and was provided with combat rated full coverage shields. For extra protection, the mk X also carried an shoulder mounted heavy shield.
The standard mk X was outfitted with eight medium beam cannons, and four short range, low yield missile launchers. However, a number of weapons options packages had been created to increase the mk X’s versatility on the battlefield. These included long range beam cannons and extra missiles. The mk X was not configured for melee combat, instead relying on its high mobility to keep itself out of striking range. .
The mk X was a large success. Like the mk IX, though, its strength would come from its large production numbers. Where it lacked in firepower, its simple construction made for large production numbers. In addition, it was suitable for a larger amount of mission roles than the mk VIII, including combat. It was still in production when the Ancient Remnant was discovered, though it would fare poorly on a one on one basis against the Remnant’s highly advanced mecha. The mk X would continue to see large production numbers during the next million years, though it would eventually be supersceded and replaced with the newer MID mk XA.
Nearly 400 Trillion mk Xs were produced over the course of the next million years. There are none remaining in service, as they were all field-upgraded to the newer mk
