The HWR-23 was a Karbarran fire support mecha (Karbarran designation Chlegg’leved 654) briefly adopted by the United Earth Expeditionary Force (UEEF). The Wolf was actually more of a space defense robot, much in the same vein as the old SDR-04 Phalanx. The Wolf was armed with a heavy triple mount particle beam cannon and a multiple missile launcher under a clam-shell armored cover on the main torso. The two “stalks” on top of the torso were a pair of combination search and track radars with multi-spectrum camera systems and laser designators. The Wolf was designed to be used primarily in space, where it would be deployed on the decks of Karbarran capital ships. The mecha’s large feet helped facilitate this with their powerful electromagnetic pads. The UEEF mostly used the
Wolf in this same capacity, though they were sometimes landed planet-side to serve as missile artillery. Most of the mecha went back to the Karbarrans when the terms of the lend-lease agreements expired.
