World of the Southern Cross - Mecha and Equipment

Robotech - Southern Cross

In the feudal society of Earth in 2028 stability is bought with military might. The Army of the Southern Cross and the Eastern Bloc Soviet Independent Stat (EBSIS) represent the two largest military powers on Earth. While the ASC has the edge in technology, the EBSIS is catching up and the two are involved in a slowly escalating arms race. Mecha and equipment for both powers are listed below.

Mecha (singular and plural) is the general term for the giant robotic combat systems used by both sides. The term is shortened from the word mechanical and was originally used as a nickname for any piece of advanced technology, but eventually came to apply specifically to the new robotic combat vehicles being designed by the Robotech Research team. The even shorter term mech is also occasionally instead of mecha.

Both military powers also maintain more traditional combat equipment, including vehicles like conventional fighter jets and tanks, as well as general and specialized equipment used by individual soldiers in the field.

Update: By the end of 2028 a new global power had emerged, the New World Order, with its own mecha and military forces. Following the NWO conflict, the technologically advanced Robotech Masters arrived at Earth in their space fleet with an army of mecha of their own.
