Ripper Power Armor

The “Ripper” is a newer Mishhuvurthyar power armor designed to be piloted by the easily-created Mishhuvurthyar brain-slave pilots. It is slightly larger than a Mindy power armor, heavily armed, and extremely strong. It appears to have a heavy influence of Star Army technology in it. The “Ripper” was first encountered in a brief sighting on Tami by a pilot from the YSS Mikomi (NS-X1-95) during the Battle of Tami. Since then, it has appeared with increasing frequency and is now seen in almost any NMX ground operation.

By later in the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, Ripper armors were being hastily constructed using whatever armor materials were available, resulting in considerable variance in their toughness. The original Rippers of the First Mishhuvuthyar War were of uniformly high end construction while the NMX produced them in more places with lowered standards, especially after the destruction of the SMX shipyard at Sbuhfaba.

There are several versions:

  • 1A Variant - CFS equipped, shielded, and FTL capable
  • 1B Variant - Generic ground version without shields or FTL
  • 1C Variant - Reduced Cost Version

Damage Capacity

See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.

  • Armor: 15 SP (Armor Scale) or 12 SP for 1C version.
  • Shields (1A version only): 15 SP (Threshold 3)
