Gladiator [MBR-07 Mk III]

Gladiator

The Gladiator, along with the M.A.C. III, is one of the most changed in appearance and armaments. The metal leviathan is still the fastest of its brothers and still mainly a frontline combat unit, but its weapon systems are completely different from the famous MK II of the RDF. The shoulder missile pods have been replaced with high-powered laser cannons, the chest mounted weapon cluster has been replaced by a dual laser turret and mini-missiles, while short range missiles are now stored in the legs like the Alpha and Beta fighters. Like the earlier RDF model, the new Gladiator retains its ability as a powerhouse in hand to hand combat. Its punch can puncture M.D.C. armour or shatter the walls of a building.
