Kraus Maffei Destroids GmbH MBR-15 Leopard Main Battle Robot
by Tim Wing
The MBR-15 Leopard entered service late in the war against the Invid. It served primarily with the United Earth Expeditionary Force (UEEF) Tactical Corps and Marine Corps. In the post war period, the Leopard went on to become the most widely used mecha in the Terran inventory. The Leopard still serves to this day in the Reserve Components of the Federal Combined Planetary Forces.
The Leopard was armed with four heavy particle beam cannons and a pair of multiple launch missile pods which could be configured for a wide variety of ordinance. Though a short range weapon system was not part of the mecha’s original equipment, later versions did mount a pair of anti-troop lasers in a turret on the front of the mecha.
Versions of the Leopard was fully space capable, but not to the same extent as the NA-1 and NA-5 Naval Anti-Aircraft Destroids. The Leopard was first and foremost a ground Destroid. With its long range particle beam cannons and the versatile nature of its missile pods, the Leopard was well suited to most combat roles.
