MBR-04-Mk.VI Destroid Tomahawk is a destroid mecha for ranged combat, first seen in the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series.

DevelopmentEdit

The MBR-04 series were the first combat-ready Destroids and the most successful land-combat weapon Destroids that were built with OverTechnology of Macross. The abbreviation MBR (Main Battle Robot) indicates the model was developed as a walking humanoid weapon emphasizing the heavy armor firepower of an artillery combat vehicle, designed to replace mainline battle tanks.

Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Despite inferior anti-aircraft abilities, the Tomahawk boasts firepower that leads the Destroid series. The MBR Mk I original designation was the Destroid, but once its systems became the basis for other models, this first model became the Mark One. The MBR-04-Mk I's weaponry consisted of rocket launchers and two arms for use in close-quarters combat. Eventually the Tomahawk arms became fixed armaments unsuitable for hand-to-hand combat and thus it was best fielded in a combined arms role with cooperating Destroid models. The potential of the Type 04 lead to concurrent development of models that became the prototypes of affiliated Destroids of the 04 series.

The Type 04 series was developed jointly by Viggers and Chrauler and became the basis of the MBR-04-MkVI Tomahawk. Unlike the variable fighters (which had to be designed to accommodate transformation mechanisms), the MBR series featured a structure with a large capacity that allowed plenty of room for machinery. The main frame from the waist down is common to the Type 04 series, a module which consolidates the thermonuclear reactor and ambulatory system OverTechnology of the Destroids.

Production line integration using this module was a key goal of Destroid development. The Type 04 design lead to expansion of installed armaments and achieved improvement in productivity and serviceability which contributed to the rapid development of the Destroid variations such as the Defender. Projectile resistance was stressed in the design but the Tomahawk did not have the armor strength to withstand a direct hit from a Zentradi mobile weapon. The Tomahawk made use of heaviness to add firepower and versatility such that it came to symbolize those features of the Destroid.
