Background (to be expanded later)

The Strike Garland came about as a design to be more of an airbourne mobile infantry unit rather than a urban combat unit.  Returning to using hover jets as was attempted prior to the MODAT prototypes, the Strike Garland achieves impressive speeds in all modes.  Combined with excellent firepower for a unit this small the Strike Garland easily succeeded at all parameters that were set for it.

Unfortunately the the war with the Masters dwindled what few units were in service but those that remained when the Invid invaded proved invaluable and excellent for combatting the Invid and their mecha.

Systems of Note Combat Computer - Calculates, stores and transmits data onto a HUD (heads up display) of the pilot's (or other crew members) helmet. Typically tied into the units targeting computer. Can hold hundreds of entries about various enemies and robots/power armour/aircraft/vehicles.

Ejection System - Ejects crew or crew module out from the robot in emergency circumstances. System typically ejects the occupants about 1000 feet (300m) to parachute safely away.

Complete Environmental Pilot and Crew Compartment - A completely computer controlled life support system that includes: internal cooling and temperature control, air pruification and circulation systems (gas filtration, humidifier/dehumidifier) that engages when needed and can recirculate breathable air for upto 4 days if neccessary, computer controlled independant oxygen supply and purge system that has upto 6 hours of breathable air that automatically engages in low oxygen or contaminated air environments, insulated high temperature resistant shielding for upto 300 degrees centrigade (normal fires do no damage though nuclear, and plasma fires do full damage), radiation shielded upto several hundred rads, and polarized and light sensitive/adjusting tinted viewport.

Standard instrumentation - Speedometer, distance travelled, inertial mapping system (zeroed on your deployment location/home base), power system temperature, ammunition counters, damage assessment indicators.
