Description:

Strata fusion-powered variant Dig-Lord miningmech.

Bio:

The Dig-Lord-S6 industrialmech is a variant of Dig-Lord miningmech replacing the fuel cell engine with a Strata made industrial fusion engine, two fluid sprayers are also removed and the spare weight is used to add one heavy searchlight and environmental sealing. The added equipment is required to adapt the industrialmechs to wet and fog-shrouded conditions in the midlands and lowlands of Strata, as well as the dusty and dark conditions of mines in general. Note that many variants from the original Dig-Lord were designed and trialled on Strata before the current balance (trading off dust suppression gear for lighting and environmental gear) was found to fulfil performance requirements.

Standard Civilian Variant
The standard civilian miningmech variant is equipped with environmental sealing, a rock cutter, a mining drill, and a dust suppression system.

Standard Militarised Variant A
The standard militarised variant (Mod-A) replaces the dust suppression equipment for a medium laser and flamer in each torso (replacing each fluid gun) and replaces the fluid bins with a LRM15 launcher and three tons of ammo in the right torso. The design philosophy is to use the LRM’s for long range fire, any target that closes to medium range faces the lasers as well, and any target that enters short range to avoid the LRM’s comes under fire from the lasers flamers and makeshift melee weapons.

Role: Dig Lord S6 Mod-A
The slow but decently armoured Dig Lord S6 Mod-A is used as a missile support unit equipped with enough short range weapons to deter hostile units from closing in. The Dig Lord S6 Mod-A is also used as a demolition unit.

Standard Militarised Variant B
The standard militarised variant (Mod-B) is an upgrade of the previous version (Mod-A) removing one ton of LRM ammo and adding CASE and an ejection system. The main searchlight in the head must be relocated to the center torso. The design philosophy is to use the LRM’s for long range fire, any target that closes to medium range faces the lasers as well, and any target that enters short range to avoid the LRM’s comes under fire from the lasers flamers and makeshift melee weapons.

Role: Dig Lord S6 Mod-B
The slow but decently armoured Dig Lord S6 Mod-B is used as a missile support unit equipped with enough short range weapons to deter hostile units from closing in. The Dig Lord S6 Mod-B is also used as a demolition unit.

Customised Militarised Variant B2
The customised militarised variant (Mod-B2) is an upgrade of the previous version (Mod-B). The two arm mounted mining tools were replaced with a full lift hoists and hand actuators in the right arm and a lift hoist and ‘salvage arm’ in the left arm. The design intention was to create a useful loadermech and salvagemech, but still weaponised. One example of Dig Lord S6 Mod-B2 is recorded, designed and piloted by CPO Lionel Barclay. This individual unit was later customised, replacing the LRM15 and both flamers for four LRM5 racks and a third ton of ammunition. The standard B2 variant design file retains the LRM15 and flamers, largely for ease of conversion to other civilian and military Diglord variants..

Role: Dig Lord S6 Mod-B2
The slow but decently armoured Dig Lord S6 Mod-B2 is used as a missile support unit equipped with enough short range weapons to deter hostile units from closing in. The Dig Lord S6 Mod-B2 is also used as a loadermech and slavagemech unit.

Custom Civilian Variant A, Loadermech
The customised civilian variant converts the miningmech to a loadermech. This variant was developed by Jacques Dubois. The two arm mounted mining tools were replaced with full lift hoists (and hand actuators), an additional search light in each arm, and a fluid suction system in each arm. The design intention was to create a useful loadermech and to expand upon the firefighting capabilities of the base model.

Custom Civilian Variant B, Loadermech and Salvagemech
The customised civilian variant converts the miningmech to a loadermech and salvagemech. This variant was developed by CPO Lionel Barclay based upon the Variant A. The two arm mounted mining tools were replaced with a full lift hoists and hand actuators in the right arm and a lift hoist and ‘salvage arm’ in the left arm. The design intention was to create a useful loadermech and salvagemech. The design and blueprints were filed with the Strata Institute of Science but no known examples have been assembled.
