This Mandalorians group is dedicated to the Star Wars Roleplay of Mod DB, the reason for its existence is to prevent clutter with its parent Mandalorian group. Application for this group counts as an application for the Star Wars Roleplay, roleplaying is not required however.
The Mandalorian military has seen changes throughout the ages, however the core always remained. An army of brothers united by more than blood, faith or allegiance.

Much of the old army and navy has been used as a base to create a new series of battle platforms and units, the modern counterparts of the classical units are far more deadly either more rounded or specialized, in some instances both.
Classical units will either be phased out, retired, re-purposed or sold.
From fierce Shock Troopers, to large Mobile Pulse Cannons and powerful Missile Walkers, the army stands defiant against opposition. Using overwhelming brute force, combined arms and innovation to achieve its goals. Whilst the navy deploys a vast force of large lumbering warships with monumental weapons. Swarms of Basilisks ravage the enemy lines under the supporting fire of Kom'rk battleships, commanded from the mighty Mythosaur Star Dreadnoughts. The navy is a force of overwhelming firepower and very resistant to opposing counterstrikes at the cost of speed and quantity.
Strills were highly intelligent creatures, capable of understanding verbal commands and intuiting the feelings of those sentients around it. Domesticated Strills would not often leave their owners, but occasionally did roam within the boundaries of their territory independently.
Skilled trackers and fierce hunters, capable of taking down large prey such as shatuals and carrying the carcass back to their abode. Their sharp claws allowed the strill to climb the sides of buildings and trees, where they would wait to ambush a prospective target. Once the prey was in range, the strill leaped from their high perch and, using their leathery wings formed from their loose folds of skin, glided through the air, swooping down for the kill.
Mandalorians are life long soldiers bred for war and combat, from an early age he is subjugated to fighting and learns how to gain Glory and Honor from it. By tradition, Mandalorians may take in orphaned children of defeated races or such and treat them as their own.
Ultimately, in the span of over four thousand years, Mandalorians slowly changed from the feared Mandalorian Crusaders of the Sith Empires, to the elite soldiers of the Jedi Coalition and later the reorganized Galactic Alliance, fighting for a cause rather than mainly for credits and the destruction of worlds.
By the Second Imperial Civil War, the distinctive Mandalorian armor had taken on a more segmented appearance, providing the wearer with maximum coverage and mobility.
=MZ-9 Mobile Pulse Cannon=
The MZ-9 is an upgrade over the old MZ-8 Mobile Pulse Cannon, many enhancements are added over the old version and are noticeable, the MZ-9 is bigger, tougher and more expensive. It is even slower due to the double plating of Duranium armor and medium shield generator but makes up for it with extremely increased firepower.
Now featuring the same Taim & Bak cannon in a powerful pair along with missile launchers and two rotary blaster cannons it can destroy most enemy targets it faces that are ground bound with great effectiveness.
Heavily armed and heavily armored are key words that describe the Missile Walker. This lumbering mechanical beast functions as a mobile, long-range artillery and anti-air missile battery. Two top-mounted heavy repeating blaster cannons protect it from infantry and light vehicles at a medium distance. Escorts must protect its blindspots.
The Missile Walker makes up for its slow speed with heavy armor and functionality. The missiles can be armed with various warheads and guided by laser to their target, increasing potential range and accuracy. Advanced targeting computers onboard the Missile Walker calculate the trajectory alongside other units. It creates a network of overlapping locked-down zones for its massive payload and blocks other missiles with its limited Point-Defence System.
Jorir translates into the archaic Mando'a word for "carry" and "bear". The vessel itself can ferry a mixture of infantry, vehicles, equipment and supplies from a carrier or by itself using its hyperdrive.
Although the Jorir-type Dropship is equipped with two medium shield generators and medium armor it cannot be expected to last long without escort.
Named to honor the ancient workhorse of the Mandalorian fleet during the Crusades, the new Basilisk-class Starfighter is the result of years of research and the culmination of the efforts of the Verpine and Mandalorians to integrate the best starfighter technology available into making the ultimate starfighter. It is a distant cousin to the legendary Besu'liik.
Cutting-edge weapons and systems are integrated into a durable, stealth spaceframe. The dark gray finish with baffled exhausts mask it from sight. The design is completed with an ultra-thin beskar outer skin and the vessel is equipped with a light shield generator for protection. Offensively it is armed with twin miniature Mass Drivers and four light blaster repeaters along with a payload of medium-range homing missiles and few Proton Bombs. In addition it carries several upgraded Buzz Droids.
The Tracyn-type Frigate is a very strong and tough Frigate, able to take can take a beating and dish it back out. To allow for this high dose of raw firepower and durability, it had to sacrifice its speed. The Tracyn is armed with a variety of anti-starfighter weapons ranging from lasers, turbo lasers, flak and even specialized mass drivers. To combat larger vessels such as Frigates it is armed with a battery of super-heavy concussion missiles and two regular mass drivers.
In addition to its powerful capabilities against Strikecraft, it is armed with a Point-Defence System.
A dedicated all-purpose Battleship, the Kom'rk-type Battleship was designed for sustained close to medium range ship-to-ship combat. With advanced shield generators and several layers of heavy armor plating, the Kom'rk was made to last, but it is the varied array of weapon systems that truly make this vessel worthy of its name, title, and origin.
The main guns, five heavy mass driver cannons on the exterior of the vessel, can propel massive explosive, fragmentation, armor piercing, and a variety of other lethal projectile rounds at high velocity and long range, super heavy concussive missile launchers are also present as are your run of the mill laser batteries. There is no doubt that this vessel is a Mandalorian warship, designed by the galaxy's fiercest and longest surviving warrior culture.
A significant number of armaments are concealed beneath retractable armor panels all over the hull. Most of these are turbolaser and mass driver batteries, though there are also a number of rapid fire missile launchers and ion cannons. The hull is thickly armored. It is also hardened against electromagnetic attacks, which it is capable of absorbing to some degree. The majority of the energy is dispersed into the frame, leaving otherwise vulnerable systems within the ship unharmed.
On the defensive, instead of several heavy shield generators, the Taung-type Battlecruiser relies on a network of several hundred smaller generators that overlap and reinforce each other like scales, these are present in large amounts.
Offensive weapons exist out of Super Heavy Concussive Missile Launchers as well as normal missile launchers and average Mass Drivers and Turbolaser cannons, its primary weapons are its two double-barrel Ultra-Heavy Mass Drivers. In addition to this, the Taung also has the Leech shield ability of its predecessor the Keldabe.
The Mythosaur-type Star Dreadnought is the spiritual successor to the Shadow-class. Being built specifically to be the heart of offensive important Battlegroups, is assigned for heavy Mandalorian Strike Forces on important missions. Most of her systems are state of the art and focus on being a hard hitter, and survivor. The Mythosaur is a contender for the title of being the ultimate warship in the galaxy as well as a foreboding site to behold when it jumps in.
Dual forward Proton Beams and five double Ultra-Heavy Mass Drivers are its primary weapons. Secondary weapons exist out of Super-Heavy Concussion Missile Launchers as well as normal variants, Mass Drivers, Turbolasers and lasers are also present in large amounts. It can also Leech shields.
