The fourth incarnation (Red Ivy being considered the second due to foreign technology being incorporated. Records of the third version were redacted) of the ESIONE mech, Helios ST's flagship model, the Caballus is a leap in technological development, created as a joint protect between Helios and Dawnbreak Avionics, a splinter group of Helios ST.

One such advancement of engineering is the Caballus' Endo-Steel/Titanium Alloy frame, which weighs 30% less than the standard frame used for the previous versions of the ESIONE and Versailles units. Alongside the lightweight alloy used in it's frame, the Caballus is equipped with Avalonium armour plates, doubling it's physical defense capabilities compared to the standard armour. Avalonium is very similar to the Endo-Steel/Titanium alloy, the only difference is that it is only possible to produce it in Jupiter's upper atmosphere, as the gas giant's immense gravity well is a crucial factor in the production of the ultra-dense yet lightweight Avalonium.

Another amazing piece of technology is the Caballus' E.D.G.E. System, which stands for Emergency Defense Galvanosynaptic Enhancer System. It is an defensive system that stimulates and connects to the pilot's nervous system directly via quantum waves, allowing for ultra-quick reaction time and reflexes, though this will put a strain on the pilot's brain.

Plasma Launcher


VibroSword (Also known as a sonic blade, is a hand-carried weapon. The blade vibrates at a very high frequency to increase its cutting ability. While having very little visible movement the vibroblade is actually striking the target thousands, perhaps millions of times per second. Each strike, chips away a bit more armor. This happens so fast that the blade appears to "slice" through armor. In addition the unit, when wielding the weapon, can focus plasma around the blade. The green area is the Plasma Launcher emitting a beam to heat up the blade, amplifying it's cutting ability)

Pilot(s)



Silas Thorne

Former leader of the MRX (Maelstrom Response) Team during the Maelstrom Crisis and later the subsequent events of the Seperation War and the dissolution of the Nexus Force, Silas has been inducted into a private security force financed by Helios Science/Technology to root out and eradicate any A.N.F.U. (Anti-Nexus Force Union) Remnants or other radical groups. This security force would later be known as D.A.R.T. (Defensive Action & Response Team) after Earth is split between three superpowers (COUGHCOUGHIMHINTINGATYOUTWITCHCOUGHCOUGH). Though the D.A.R.T. HQ is stationed somewhere in East Asia, the organisation operates globally and throughout the Space Colonies under various member companies.




Sarah Leone

During an the attack of a splinter nation in West Europe which had different ideals than the superpower controlling that region, Silas was force to exit the Caballus in order to ensure the safety of an important politician amidst a chaotic Mobile Suit battle. With the Caballus unguarded, Sarah, a local military officer, took the opportunity to use the powerful Mech to defend her nation, much to the surprise of Silas when he finds the Caballus missing. This is mainly due to the Caballus being neural-locked to Silas and only individuals with almost exact brainwaves (this extends to thoughts and intentions of a person) can bypass the lock. Proving to be an adept mech pilot despite only having basic training, Sarah would soon be recruited by D.A.R.T. . She would subsequently become Silas' girlfriend.

I thought about an ace pilot from each superpower. I was thinking that the main character thinks that he destroyed all data pertaining to Serenity and the blueprints of a highly advanced Gundam-type Mobile Suit like that, but he missed some. And through what little data he did miss, pseudo-Gundams are made, similar to the GN TAUs from Gundam 00. They are more powerful than your normal or even high-performance Mobile Suit, but not quite as much as a full on Gundam. Part of how the three nations ARE superpowers comes from how they were formed. The Eurasia Federation started off as the Neo-Soviet Union going on an almost unstoppable conquest rampage. The East Asia League is formed in a similar manner out of self-preservation, albeit on a smaller scale. And the Western Hemisphere Alliance is North and South America joining together to drive back the former two and reform the United Nations. That is the basis of it.

Quoting TF Twitch Any suggestions so far for my "universe?" Or ideas? If you want, we can carry this conversation on another MOC as to not clog this one up with irrelevant comments.
Using this MOC's fine, I'm not particular about off-topic comments anyway. As for suggestions and ideas, it would be pretty nifty for each of the superpowers to have their own ace pilot (AKA Named characters). They'll likely also need some kind of plot device that supports the fact that they are superpowers, perhaps an orbital elevator / solar powerplant in space?

This is pretty awesome! I love the Gundam-y feel to this. My only suggestion would be to expand out the mid-section a few plates/bricks. He seems a bit thin.

Quoting TF Twitch Very nice. I like how your the lower legs is longer in proportion to the upper legs with your ESIONE designs. It really gives them a very unique look. And for some reason this gives the impression of a Gundam mixed with a ZAKU. Probably because of the colors and the shape. Meh. The shoulder armor is a nifty design and I really like it, especially how it covers up the missiles. The additional thrusters that are mounted on the shoulders are a nice addition and help give it a unique look. And why are you hinting at me? I do not get it... Haha.
Thanks, Twitch! I was working towards a mono-eye/visor head design with a little humanoid aesthetics to it, this can be seen with the white mouth/red chin protrusion which is definitely a nod towards the Gundams. As for the colour scheme, I based it off Temjin from the Virtual-On series (A very classic and japanese mech game). Anyway, what I was hinting at was a reference to your back stories / history MOCs of your Mobile Core / Mobile Suit universe!

Quoting LTE MOCer Nice mech you got there! I'm sure about the shoulders, but everything else is good!
Thanks, LTE! Regarding the shoulders, I was attempting to build an Armored Core-like mech, which in this case, was based off Stasis/Lahire, and a bit of White Glint. I also tried to design it to be similar to the Gerbera Tetra from the Gundam universe
