Type 18 Mod Package For A.S.C. Battloids.UGC FLAG.
United Galaxies Council.
The T-18 mod package was originally meant to upgrade the Global Military Police's Battloid; However, the program was too costly at the time, and was canceled. It was regained favor with colony worlds as it multiples the firepower potentials of Battloids

already available; Additionally, the cost/benefit ratio has come down SIGNIFICANTLY as a result of the greater efficiency of the Neo-Tech Factories.
Conventional wisdom holds that any non-transformable, non-flyer Mecha that does not posses an integrated, non-energy based weapons system is referred to as a "Battloid"; Otherwise it is a Destroid.
However, the T-18 blurs this classical distinction; Intended as an upgrade to Battloids, it still delivers an integrated, non-energy based weapons system (the MM-60 Multi-Missile System). Conventional wisdom also holds once a Battloid, always a Battloid. The unit depicted is a Global Military Police (G.M.P.) Battloid in the T-18 Package, but any type of Battloid can be outfitted with the kit. Also, the UGC has on occasion toyed with the idea of a T-18 style kit designed for other Mecha; The RDF-Era Escalator and REF-Ear Valiant have gained special attention in these considerations. However, the technology to make these kits practical still have not been developed in a cost effective option, though an option for the AV-98 Ingram Police Destroid.
The stats listed here are the nominal stats; Exact construction varies, but not significantly. Some systems are known to swap out the GRA-10 laser canon for a missile or rocket launcher (rocket launchers hold 3× the capacity, but are dumb rockets), others to double down on the arm-mounted PBC. The armor plating itself has been the subject of some debate, as stylistic differences express different ideas of the threats anticipated; Depicted on the left is the "classic" T-18 armor package designed for energy-based weapons, and on the right the T-18a designed for projectile and explosive weapons.
Note: The UGC does not provide and funding for T-18 packages at this time; However, the individual systems can make this funding available for their regional forces and guard units.
