The Scandinavian Teutonic Order is infamous around the world for its Battle Robots, and are generally accepted as the leaders in the development and research of these creations. But up until now the small territory has never really had the production capacity to take their creations to the next level. Following the Full Cooperation Pact signed between the Prussian Empire and the Teutonic Order in late 1871, their dreams of conquest finally seem to be within their grasp! The Hochmeister Dreadnought Battle Robot marks the pinnacle of the new alliance, marrying the industrial capability of the Prussian Empire with the ingenious engineers and inventors of the Teutonic Orders to create a true monster in the field of Battle Robot development.
Armed with a pair of wrist mounted Speerschleuders and a pair of shoulder-braced primary gun turrets, the Hochmeister has a fearsome array of firepower at its disposal. In certain cases Hochmeisters can also be adapted to have external Calcification Generators with a vastly increased range and even Guardian Generators (which up until now had been a solely Teutonic creation). It is even possible for the Hochmsieter to replace its primary turrets with a pair of Speerscheluders, however to do so affects its ability to activate its internal Tesla Generator due to a loss in power.
With the strong Prussian influence in both manufacture and testing of these ‘Dread-Robots’, the battle robot crews have begun to investigate various fighting techniques that have become possible with the improved design. The Hochmeister’s increased mobility and speed over the previous Saint Michael and Metzger allows a rigid set of fighting styles taken from the medieval Germanic Sword Fighting Schools.
Using the manuals of Liechtenauer, a famous 14th century Sword Master, as a basis for the development of their fighting techniques, the crews can now execute punishing attacks using sword and maces, delivering powerful killing blows to their enemies using techniques such as Zornhau and Scheitelhau with devastating effect.
It will not be long before the Hochmeister causes the enemies of the Teutonic Order and Prussian Empire to shudder as its thunderous tread rocks them to their core.
