Lore:One of the most advanced war machines in the Orc armies is the Vangraha'u or 'summoned beast' these powerful walkers combine the best of captured colonial technology with indigneous Orc design. The two legs are supported by wide stabilizing platforms, or feet. The Orcs have developed a interior suspension and cushion system that allows the walker to experience incredible jolts and impacts without threatening it's balance, thus allowing for faster movement, and more steady tread of dangerously un-even ground. The stubby looking plasma cannon fires condensed packets of cold plasma that quickly melt through and destroy almost any surface, with a belly gun for infantry and light vehicles, and eight multi-target format cluster rockets for anti-air capabilities the Orcs have proven their ability to learn from past combat experiances, and develop new units that are not so limited in combat effectiveness.
The three massive claws on each foot are sharpened for fence cutting, or simply for stepping on infantry or small vehicles, making them weapons as well. One of the truly odd, but also truly terrifying aspects to witness is the Vangraha'u roar. This is an electronically created signal amplified through a speaker system, and to human ears this is a shrieking roar that cuts through to your heart and can force even seasoned soldiers to fall to the ground in fear. The effect of this signal was only recently discovered by the Orcs, it was initially created to allow detached units to easily identify where on the battlefield the walkers were located. To an Orcs more advanced sense of hearing this 'half animal half tortured steel' sound is a simple beckoning call allowing other units to pin point the location of their support walker.
