SRF-5000 Iconoclast Veritech
BACKGROUND : The IHE
saw no real need for Mecha until after the SDF-3 left for Tirol. After
the experimentation in current mecha trends with the Shock Divers
and Crash Hounds, Dr. Gilles Vaudell decided that one of two new
mecha would be the definitive mecha for the Mordecai's legions.
The mecha in question were the SRF-71 Iconoclast veritech and the
Vautomer Jackal. After extensive tests, the Iconoclast won
out.The SRF-5000 is a quantum leap above the Veritechs that came
before it. The base of the changes is in the fighter's central
computer. While the original Iconoclasts had advanced AI systems
that could anticipate target movement and tactics, the new
SRF-5000 series can think for themselves.
system was atempted by the Masters with their combat robots that they
deployed towards the end of the Second Robotech War, but the
SRF-5000 was far superior. The SRF-5000 could converse, and has a
full personality. Many pilots formed close bonds with their
Veritechs. By 2056, most older Iconoclasts had been replaced with
SRF-5000s. However, some pilots prefer to fly 'dumb' ships and
there is a need for Meson accelerators, so the SRF-71 iconoclasts
still survive.The Iconoclast was to be Mordecai's first line of
defence, and thousands were produced in their ten year service.
The mecha were the spearhead of every battle the IHE took part in
in that time. They were phased out in the early 2050s as the
Artificially intelligent SRF-5000 Iconoclasts became available,
but some are still in service with private individuals, and as
backup mecha.The Iconoclast was to be the ultimate in veritech

M.D.C. BY LOCATION
NOTE: The SRF-71
Series Veritech incorporates the Southern Cross' laser resistant
ceramic armor, so laser weapons do only HALF damage. This does
NOT include any other energy attacks such as particle beams or
ion blasts, nor does it help against explosives.
with Jet Thrusters:
with Rocket Thrusters:
- Reflex Shield.
Concentrated on the hands of the MAP, the shield provides
an additional 300 MDC which must be depleted before any
damage may be applied to the mecha. The shield recharges
at the rate of 30MDC per turn. The shield may not operate
in any turn that the Meson accelerator is fired.
- LASER-RESISTANT CERAMIC
COATING: Invented during the construction of Southern
Cross mecha, this coating scrambles laser tracking and
reduces laser damage by half (lasers ONLY).
- RADAR: 500 Kilometre
range. Can identify and track up to 20 targets
simultaneously, and track a further 50.
- BACKUP RADAR: 10 mile
(16 km) range. Can identify and track up to 20 targets
- RADIO COMMUNICATIONS:
Wide band and directional radio and video telecast
capabilities. Range is 600 miles (945 km) or can be
boosted indefinitely via satellite relay.
- LASER COMMUNICATIONS:
Long-range, directional communication system. Effective
range: 100,000 miles (157,500 km).
- Meson communications. Real
time communications within five light years, with
communications available out to 15 light years, with a
one second time lag per light year beyond five.
- COMBAT COMPUTER:
Calculates, stores, and transmits data onto the cockpit
computer screen, heads-up display (H.U.D.), or the
pilot's helmet display. Also, an AI system provides
information on tactics and advice, giving +2 to initiave.
- TARGETING COMPUTER: AI
system which rates offensive capability of enemy units
and provides likely evasive patterns based on speed,
bearing, and displayed tactics of target. Gives +2 to
- LASER TARGETING SYSTEM:
Can track any single target within 100 km.(10,000 km in
- MOTION DETECTOR AND
COLLISION WARNING SYSTEM: 80m range. Sounds an alarm
and red light warns pilot of impending collision and/or
- TELESCOPIC OPTICAL
ENHANCEMENT: Range to Horizon with 150X Zoom, plus
Infra-Red, Starlight, and Electromagnetic emmissions.
- EXTERNAL AUDIO PICKUP:
100m range. A sound amplification listening system that
can pick up a whisper 100 metres away.
- HEAD SPOTLIGHTS: 150m
range with Terran daylight intensity.
- EJECTOR SEAT: Removes
pilot from vechicle in case of emergency. The chair has
no survival equipment, as the pilot will be weraing a
- SELF-DESTRUCT: A last
ditch effort to prevent the capture of a Veritech unit
(usually preceded by the pilot's ejection from the
Veritech) is self-destruction. Explosive damage at
2D10*10 to everything within 25m. A dodge roll of 8+(with
no bonuses) is allowed.
- HEAT AND RADIATION SHIELDS:
Special shielding prevents the penetration of
life-threatening heat and radiation.
- INDEPENDANT OXYGEN AND
CIRCULATORY SYSTEM: Built-in tanks provide one month
of continuous oxygen. With the special recycling systems,
this may be extended to four months. Use of a Shock Diver
suit extends these figures by 100%. A stasis system can
bring a pilot to a state 90% cellular halt. This can be
sustained for three years.
- Fold System.
MC-144MT fold drive allows travel of 66,666 light years
over three days. The drive must recharge for a day before
