The Empire's HMVs are mostly characterized by the green color, a very standard set of models, each one with a unique use, armor and weaponry.

General InformationEdit

The Imperial HMVs were the Empire's mainstay combat unit after their introduction to the galaxy by Decel Erachin. They were used in favour of other vehicles due to their versatility and the Empire's immense wealth.

Prior to the Reclaimation War, Imperial HMVs saw little action, being concentrated on Imperial worlds and fleets due to the inaction of King Mathias. This led to mercenaries and small commando forces doing much of the fighting against the Hydra League leading to inexperience among the Empire's ranks when full-scale war broke out in 91AF.

When the Empire was destroyed and many of the foundries of Factory were levelled, these HMVs entered the hands of Imperial warlords after the Empire fragmented, though some can be found and still produced on worlds that were formerly in Empire jursidiction leading to them being used by a wide variety of factions throughout the galaxy.

ClassesEdit

They are used for almost all combat operations thanks to their general-purpose use with effective rifles, good armour and strong thrusters allowing them to deal with most threats. They are also capable of flight, adding to their versatility.








Imperial Infantry EliteEdit

Usually used as squad leaders or shock troops on the battlefields, the Elites are used as strategic guards in major events. They were commonly seen on Villa, where they protected the high-ranked Imperial Officers. They use a standard HMV machine gun and a shield.

Imperial Elite Assault InfantryEdit

Nowadays rarely seen on the battlefield, they were dominant to breach lines of artillery, equipped with a long-range cannon against fortified positions, repeating cannons against other HMVs and a shield against close-quarters enemies to counter their weaker armor. This under-specialization brought the creation of a new version.

Imperial Heavy Assault InfantryEdit

A new version of the assault infantry, it features an heavier armor and better thrusters, allowing it to easily cross the battlefield. Equipped with a long-range heavy-caliber cannon, it can easily destroy most fortifications and heavier troops it fights against. Equipped with a shield on its right shoulder to protect it when using its larger guns, and a small gaitling gun on its left against smaller HMVs, it can easily break defended lines and reach the critical points.

A top of the line armor designed for use by Project Resonance Commandos. The 'mech' is really a set of armor systems that tie directly into a Synthoid pilot's body, becoming an extension of the pilot. Incredibly powerful and wildly expensive, only 14 were ever produced.
