Something I've been working on for years. Grew tired of it, couldn't stand myself for not finishing and then finished. Part mecha, part capital hsip, part doomsday weapon and part faust production facility.

Pushed to the brink of extinction, humanity was isolated to the core worlds of its old empire. With desperate times come desperate measures and old and forbidden technology were unlocked and exploited. The result of this was the Sturmtiger destroid unit. It was more then just another war machine; it was in essence the most compact system-destroying unit to be made. Able to single handily enter a heavily fortified enemy star system (or multiple if the systems were small enough) and destroy all forces in that system. To call it planet destroying was a little to humble a title; it was a civilization destroyer.
Using the bleeding edge of Grand Arms science this unit could do almost anything. It was equal parts destroid unit, capital ship, doomsday weapon and manufacturing facility. In the massive hammer space in its body were factories, which could customise and produce its army of faust. Everything about this unit was customisable by the pilot so no two ”mature” Sturmtiger would look exactly the same. This meant that given enough time and battles Sturmtigers only got more powerful. Simple customisation such as colour schemes could be done in a matter minutes while extra extensions or new faust production could take hours or days. Given enough time a Sturmtiger unit could produce itself out of any situation. To aquire the material required for expansion the Sturtiger merely had to bring in the shattered bodies of its enemies and using the molecular reaaragner furnace aquire the exact material specified. This frigthenting ability allowed for single Sturmtigers to produce whole fleets to decimate whole civilizations. The only limit to control was the psychic powers of the pilot.
Purpose built around a powerful psychic pilot many of the systems were powered by raw psychic power. This meant that the weapons and shielding were second to none when it came to pure power. Of course over use of the barrier or weapon systems could quickly drain a psychic pilot of his fighting power. To solve this problem 2 new systems were invented. First was the Annihilation weapon technology. These “anni” weapons could shatter beam blades and easily deflect beam attacks, if this was not enough they could even stand attacks from even psychic powered weaponry. Though they had a finite amount of damage they could take they could be easily manufactured inside a body of a Sturmtiger. This allowed Sturtigers to wear down psychic opponents without expanding their own energies. The second system was energy field projector system. This system was not new as the Konigkampfer had a similar system. The only difference was that this system required no faust to act as projectors. This shielding system provided a 360-degree sphere of protection. In addition to this was a layered defence of psychic shields, magnetic torroid barriers, physical and energy nullification systems (5.5 kg of projectile nullification and a higher energy threshold which could be nullified) and lastly the meter thick armouring conditioned with ambrosia treatment. This treatment was not the full 50% nullification of the original spec but was merely 10%. Enough to take the edge off most beam attacks.
Grand Arms battle strategy had evolved to the point of direct and indirect combat influence to the highest degrees. One of these strategies was to disperse as many Kampfer crystals as possible over the battlefield. The pilot could then use the Aura system, which slowly destroyed enemies (doing so by breaking their reality bonds) within the area of the Kampfer crystal dispersal. Enemies were not destroyed outright but anyone who faced a Sturmtiger would find himself or herself becoming weaker and easier to kill the longer they fought a Sturmtiger. Small missiles could be destroyed in a dozen seconds while capital ship could take up to a day to destroy. So while not directly facing a Sturmtiger any enemy was not safe from the reach of a Sturmtiger. The exact range of the Aura field was dependent on many factors including customisation of systems, but typically it was a range of 5 AU (astronomical units). Though there are some Sturmtigers who could stretch their fields over several light years. Most suprising was that this system was smart targeting and allies who fought alongside the Grand Arms forces need fear nothing.
A mech this powerful was hard to produce and a mere 1000 units were known to be made. There are rumors of a small handful of reserve Sturmtiger but these are unsubstantiated. These 1000 units leading the remnant humans were able to xenophobically destroy all alien life in the Grand Arms universe. Their might was called upon once again in the collective dimensional “Final war”. With their Grand Alliance allies the Grand Arms forces accounted themselves well against the nihilistic Elder goddess.
The exact nature of any two Sturmtiger ranged widely. The example shown is prominently armed with a single main positron cannon, which could destroy a planet in one blast. On its shoulder extensions are two large Kampfer crystal cannons, which could also do the same feat but broke down more exotic defences as well. The other weapons were up to the whims of the pilot and ranged from simple lasers to more powerful kinetic missiles. Suffice it to say a average Sturmtiger wielded awesome firepower.
A small selection of class 1 faust. As you can see they can range from single purpose sword or gun type faust to complicated "chibi" or SD versions of bigger destroid units (refering to the small shinobi looking faust). They serve the function of pawn type troops but don't discount there outright power because in numbers they can take down even large foes. Generally due to their simpler nature a Sturmtiger pilot can control a larger amount of type 1 faust versus higher number of faust. Though the pilot does have the option of controlling smaller number of powerful faust rather then a large number of simpler faust. In practice most pilot go for a mixture of forces to balance out there fighting force.
Most type 1 faust can be produced in a matter of minutes and with multiple production lines in a typical Sturmtiger body a few hundred can be produced every few minutes or so.more faust
In the upper right hand corner is an example of a class 4 faust. These were mainly the supplementary capital ships and enforcer units of the Sturmtiger's army. They were massive in size and power though these faust usually gave up versatility and movable limbs to achieve this.
The rest are class 2 faust, you'll notice that some of these class 2 can carry class 1 to act as their own faust. A very common arrangement which worked out pretty well in practice. Not much else to say other then they were more powerful then class 1 faust.more faust
Class 2 faust in the lower left hand corner. It carries many class 1 gatling faust as weapons. The rest are class 3 faust which came to an average destroid unit in power. Most class 3 started off as the bare skeleton in the uper right hand corner and had armor put on like the lower right hand corner. It was only limited by the imagination of the pilot what kind of effects or abilities he could have with his faust army.Faust Shinobi
Class 5 faust. this one is made to mimic Grand Arms Shinobi. Class 5 had great ability and it was not uncommon for them to have their own customised faust to go along with their design motifs.Fasut mini Sturmtiger
Another class 5 faust this one was made to mimic a smaller Sturmtiger. Showing the kind of ability that could be put into a class 5 faust, this one is capable of producing its own units. In this case reflective faust and teleporting missile pods. Big bad faust
The last line of defense or the second in command of a Sturmtiger's army. The class 6 was awesome in power. This example even has its own mount a class 4 faust fashioned in the shape of a Kilin. This faust follows the design motif of a chinese general (not uncommon for a pilot to draw on his ethnic heritage to get a design motif for his own Sturmtiger). As an average example of a class 6 it shows the level of firepower and ability class 6 posses.
