The bear assault mech is the muscle of the Earth Coalition. It is piloted by a single human and popularly armed with gauss cannons. It has speed capabilities of up to 70 mph (112 kph) on an even terrain. The mech is heavily armored and can easily overrun pillboxes and machine gun nests with its ability to extend its legs while running in order to jump barricades. It has superiority over tanks as its maneuverable. Most pilots enjoy jumping onto slow tanks and using the "BEAR CLAW" to tear pieces off the armor and the gauss cannon to blow it to shreds. As you can imagine, the mechs are piloted by normal soldiers with no augments other than a headset for controlling the bear through the brain. The Coalition's enemies make sport by driving mechs away from the pillboxes with jets and blowing them to pieces.
