Steam powered attack armor "Karl-Heinrich" Pattern


History

"Named after the first great emporer of Zerpen, this newly invented steam powered armor is the edge in Zerpens war tech...and a nearly unstoppable opponent on the battlefield...recent testing runs proved that as a fact...

Over the period of three years, a team of 68 Gnome scientists and construction specialists, were able to build this fear inducing battle contraption.

The process to augment the human strenght with the help of steam and some magical tech items is still a well kept secret...

The prototype is soon to be dispatched to the frontlines, it is intended to operate in a small squad of 3 men...the armor and its user, a commanding officer and a technician..."
