Overview:
    An immense mech, the Heavy Weight Robot (HWR) Monster Mk II is a heavily armed "land
    battleship"; a name that matches the great size of the mech. Very shortly after the initial
    research into super-heavy mechs began in 3076 the HWR-00 series began development in
    December that year. After a lengthy design phase trial production began in October 3096 and
    the HWR-00 Monster unit best utilized while avoiding uneven ground and any close-range
    engagement. When put to best use with supporting units in a combined arms role, the Monster
    is able to field incredible firepower equal to strategic first rollout was in September
    3098. The Monster is the largest mobile ground weapon to ever be fielded in battle by
    mankind, over 41 meters long and weighing 200 tons. The Monster was envisioned as a
    trackless, self-propelled heavy weapon system to be utilized for attack and point defense.
    In actuality, the Monster's massive size, poor maneuverability and dedicated long-range
    weaponry saw the mech used as a semi-mobile artillery unit best utilized while avoiding
    uneven ground and any close-range engagement. When put to best use with supporting units in
    a combined arms role, the Monster is able to field incredible firepower equal to strategic
    bombing.

Capabilities:
    The Monster was originally designed to use 50cm linear cannons, but was scaled down with
    smaller guns when problems arose with system strength and insufficient power for continuous
    firing. Armed with four 15cm cannons, the Monster can fire a variety of munitions with the
    primary guns, including anti-armor shells, anti-aircraft munitions, and high-explosive
    howitzers. In addition to the main guns, the Mk II features a pair of 3-barreled missile
    launchers not originally included in the design but incorporated into the two arm units. To
    compensate for the Monster's vulnerabilities such as the intense heat emissions of the unit
    (which prevented effective use of counter measures such as chaff or smoke), the armor was
    designed to be extremely thick.

Deployment:
    Though able to be mass-produced like other mechs, only two dozen Monster Mk II units were
    deployed to Republic Forces. The few Monster Mk II units distinguished themselves as very
    capable war machines during Dark Age skirmishes.
