Description

The ExcavatorMech is an industrial digging machine, meant for digging out huge masses of earth for construction projects. The EXV-1X is a very basic refit with some cheap backwater weaponry to let the mech be used for combat if necessary. Generally though the EXV-1X is not a combat-rated machine, as even though 80 Rocket Launcher tubes and a Heavy Rifle pack a punch the mech cannot easily withstand return fire and will crumble to any sustained combat design.

Description

A jumped-up industrial mech turned combat chassis, the ExcavatorMech EXV-4K carries the Excavator's traditional Backhoe, reinforced for melee use, as well as a moderately advanced loadout for an industrial-turned-combat mech. The primary weapon is a massive LB-20X Autocannon, capable of both slug and cluster fire. Backing it up is a Large Pulse Laser for highly accurate firepower. Oddly, the only remaining gear on the mech is a pair of Flamers, ostensibly for crowd control but really to start fires to cover the mech's approach.

Description

A jumped-up industrial mech turned combat chassis, the ExcavatorMech EXV-4K carries the Excavator's traditional Backhoe, reinforced for melee use, as well as a basic but effective loadout of simple weapons meant for no-frills combat. Armed with a pair of Light Autocannon/5s and a 5-tubed Multi-Missile Launcher, the EXV-4K brings moderate fire support to any situation. Up close, the Backhoe and TSM make quick work of enemies. The Excavator's traditionally thick armor provides ample protection, though the oddball inclusion of an AMS helps in a pinch.

Description

A jumped-up industrial mech turned combat chassis, the ExcavatorMech EXV-5K carries the Excavator's traditional Backhoe, reinforced for melee use, as well as a basic but effective loadout of simple weapons. 30 Medium-Range Missile tubes provide primary firepower, though two tons of ammunition can be a bit short in tough situations. A Large Laser plays second fiddle but does it effectively. 14 single heat sinks keep it all generally pretty cool. The Backhoe and Digger Claw remain and are as effective as always.

Description

A rare excursion from the standard fare of the ExcavatorMech, the EXV-8T was an attempt to bring budget artillery support to the back of beyond. However, it was only partially successful in that it required a Light Fusion Engine be installed for weight savings. Still, it's a Thumper Artillery Piece on a relative budget. Twin MML-5s give a little missile support to the Thumper. A Medium and Small Laser round out the weapons. Oddly, a trio of Jump Jets finish off the design, though their purpose is unclear.
