The Mandalorian Military

The forces of Mandalore have seen changes throughout the ages, however the core always remained. An army of brothers united by more than blood, faith or allegiance.

Rally Master
"You will raise your young as Mandalorians—and defend them. You will wear our armor, and speak our language. And you will serve the clan, and rally when called. These are the Resol'nare—the Six Actions—sacred to our movement. Do them—and you may live to call yourselves Mandalorians!"

Boba Fett
"You can't rule Mandalorians. You just make sensible suggestions they want to follow. And since when have Mandalorians needed to be told what makes sense?"

Role: Infantry
  • Blaster Rifle
  • Beskad
  • Homing Missile
  • Heavy Armour
  • Jetpack
  • Comlink

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 Honour from it. By tradition, Mandalorians may take in orphaned children of defeated races or such and treat them as their own.

Canderous Ordo
"We Mandalorians have a saying. A warrior who doesn't hope for battle has no hope during battle."

Boba Fett
"You can't rule Mandalorians. You just make sensible suggestions they want to follow. And since when have Mandalorians needed to be told what makes sense?"

Canderous-class Assault Tank
Role: Assault Tank
  • 2x Heavy Mass Driver Cannons
  • Concussion Missile Launcher
  • Shielded
  • Sensor Control Mechanism

Due to these tanks being heavily armored, they can handle heavy punishment, which was why they were equipped with a sensor control mechanism that tricked enemy vehicles into targeting the tank protecting weaker forces from harm, temporarily. The tank was also equipped with an energy shield to deflect blaster attacks; this, added to the tank's inherently formidable armour, made it a force to be reckoned with.

HAVw A6 Juggernaut
Role: Troop Transport
  • Heavy Laser Cannon
  • Repeating Laser Cannon
  • 2x Medium anti-infantry Laser Cannons
  • 2x Twin Blaster Cannons
  • 2x Grenade Launchers
  • HoloNet Transceiver
  • 50-300x Soldiers (depending on configuration)

The A6 model saw its heaviest use in service of the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. After the Clone Wars, the Imperial Army developed sleeker and more versatile combat vehicles. The Juggernaut was equipped with thick, thermally superconducting armor capable of absorbing enemy fire and dispersing heat over a wide area. It only had a top speed of only 160 kilometres and turning issues, the slowness required for negotiating turns and encouraged the A6's use on open terrain rather than urban battlefields.

Te Cabur Mand'alor
"We are the most powerful military force in the history of the galaxy. Every fight is our fight, because what happens over here matters over there. We don't get to sit one out. Learning to use the tools of modern warfare is the difference between the prospering of your people, and utter destruction. This is a time for heroes. A time for legends. History is written by the victors. Let's get to work."

Kom'rk-class fighter/transport
Role: Starfighter-Transport
  • 4x Laser Cannons
  • HoloNet Transceiver
  • 24x Soldiers

An able troop transport, keeping with its official classification by its MandalMotors creators, the Kom'rk-class fighter/transport also had little trouble living up to the second aspect of its name: fighter. Crewed by up to four beings, the Kom'rk's small size, its twin laser cannon armament, and its significant maneuverability, made the starship an effective assault craft.

Basilisk War Droid
Role: Total Annihilation
  • ?x Shockwave Generator Rods
  • ?x Laser Cannons
  • ?x Pulse-Wave Cannons
  • ?x Shatter-Missile Launchers
  • ?x Space Mines
  • Heavy Armour and Claws
  • Fore and aft Sensor Clusters
  • High-boost Engines

With a level of intelligence slightly above that of typical domesticated creatures, the animal-like Basilisk droids formed strong empathetic bonds with their Mandalorian owners. These bonds allowed the droids to react almost preternaturally to the commands of their riders, and act as extensions of their own bodies. They were loyal companions.

Canderous Ordo
"For my people it's the honor and glory of battle that rules us. It's through combat that we prove our worth, gain renown and make our fortunes."

StarViper-class Attack Platform
Role: Heavy Assault Starfighter
  • 2x Twin Heavy Laser Cannons
  • 2x Proton Torpedo Launchers
  • Shielded
  • Hyperdrive
  • S-Foil Actuator

The StarViper was equipped with dual laser cannons of medium destructive power, and unlike other starfighters, it was short in length but tall, lacking a fuselage. It had decent armor and was fairly quick, but was expensive, which meant that it was not deployed in large squadrons.

Crusader-class Corvette
Role: Corvette
  • 13x Point-Defense Laser Cannons
  • Shielded
  • Hyperdrive
  • Advanced Point-Defense System

Made to counter starfighters and bombers, the Crusader-class corvette carried as many weapons as it could without compromising its space-worthiness. Crusaders were known to utilize an advanced point-defense weapon system that allowed the ships to actually shoot down enemy missiles or torpedoes before they damaged friendly ships. This made the corvettes a valuable support addition to a fleet.

Canderous Ordo
"Win or lose, as long as the fight is worthy, then honor is gained. The glory at having triumphed over impossible odds is what drives us. If there's nothing at stake – your possessions, your life, your world – then the battle's meaningless. We Mandalore take everything we are and throw it into battle. It's the true test of yourself – the battle against death... against oblivion."

Keldabe-class Battleship
Role: Battleship
  • 25x Heavy Turbolasers
  • 15x Heavy Ion Cannons
  • 2x Mass Driver Missile Launcher Batteries
  • 5x Heavy Tractor Beams
  • Shield Leecher Weapon
  • Shielded (not on article but in-game, what do?
  • Hyperdrive
  • 36x Starfighters
  • 2x Shuttles
  • 2x Light Freighters
  • 1,000x Soldiers

The Keldabe-class battleship was a Mandal Hypernautics design. It was named after Mandalore's capital, Keldabe. The battleship design was marked by sharp edges similar to ancient Mandalorian ships. Ships of the class were able to compete with star destroyers and similar warships

Canderous Ordo
"The clans act as if they aren't a threat, but the galaxy still fears us. Ha! People think we war out of spite, or bloodlust. They don't understand, and fear that."

Jedi Master Gnost-Dural
"Mandalorians believe confrontation is required for growth, on the personal as well as the cultural level. War is the Mandalorian way of life."
