The year is 2055, more than thirty years after the events of Zero Hour, Earth suffers a catastrophic collision with meteorites. The world is thrown into turmoil as large swathes of land are annihilated. Four factions, the ADF (Asian Democratic Federation), WEA (West European Alliance), WLF (World Liberation Front), and AC (American Confederacy) are at war for control of the remaining already harder to find resources as well as the preservation of their nations and geopolitical interests. Welcome to Deep Impact.
The MRC is a feat of modern engineering, and that is saying something in these warring times. A powerful platform, the MRC is capable of adapting its role to a multitude of purposes, and yet maintains a powerful presence no matter that role. Originally an offshoot of the MASS project, the MRC uses the same propulsions systems, polarising the air around it, and keeping itself airborne. Due to its lightweight body, however, the MRC weighs far less than the MASS ever could, and thus zips around the battlefield. As a trade-off, the MRC does lack the potent weaponry of the MASS, in order to stay lightweight and extremely fast.
Advances in the propulsions systems have however resulted in an advantage for the MRC. By modulating the level at which the electrostatic charges are released from the flight pads, the MRC can be adjusted to take on different weaponry, and remain at the same speed. This modulation, however, requires additional expenses on a per-unit basis, but can ultimately change its equipment as many times as it likes. As such, the MRC is a multi-purpose unit, and can tweak itself multiple times to multiple roles. The base, or core unit comes with a simple chain gun, capable of ripping through enemy infantry with ease. Due to more resistant armour in these times, however, a single chain gun does little damage to other armoured vehicles. This, of course, does not mean that the MRC cannot be adapted to a multipurpose platform, however.
