Me: …….

Welcome to Mobile Assault Stations 101!
Instructor: [HoC] Terminator
Intended for: You, the reader!

There were three ocean liners in the Olympic-class built by White Star Line. Olympic, Titanic and Gigantic (later re-named Britannic after the disaster). There are three MAS (Mobile Assault Station) in the Leviathan-class in Unreal Tournament 2004. The Leviathan, Kraken, and Tiamat.

Leviathan
The original and first MAS, the Leviathan or “Levi” is not to be considered a useless and weak battle machine. The Leviathan has 5,000 armor and its speed is top notch for a MAS. The primary rockets from the Leviathan are no joke. While they do 50 damage per rocket which is weaker than the Kraken and Tiamat’s ( 50 vs 75), they shoot at a faster rate so more damage is done with the Leviathan’s rockets over the Kraken and Tiamat. When deployed, the Leviathan’s vapor cannon will annihilate anything within its blast radius that is not stocked up on armor- meaning, most of the modern vehicles such as the various tanks will survive a blast if on the outskirts of the blast radius. Although still a force to be reckoned with when deployed, the Leviathan is defenseless against air attacks. The four turrets on the Leviathan shoot green plasma similar to a link charge. These turrets are designed to help the Leviathan battle against ground vehicles and when properly manned, these turrets can pack a deadly punch to any ground vehicle within its sight.

Grade: B-
The Leviathan can be found on: Pyroclastic (node 2), VolcanoHigh (core), ZeroImpact (node 8), Twinfang (node 9), Hustle (core), Gunshope (core), Nevermore-TMU-2015-V3 (core) and Unknown Way (map is currently off the server).

Kraken
The next MAS, the Kraken is a step up from the original Leviathan but that doesn’t mean it’s without flaws. On the positive side, the Kraken has 10,000 armor which is double that of the Leviathan which works in its favor when in enemy territory. Unlike the Leviathan, the Kraken can defend itself against air attacks, even when deployed. The Kraken features an Energy turret, Twin Beam turret, Auto lock/Pilot Redeemer Turret and a Flak turret. When deployed, the Kraken’s vapor cannon is a force to be reckoned with. It is twice the strength of the Leviathan and has a larger blast radius which will destroy any modern tank in its path. While the above is great, the major drawback to the Kraken are its own primary rockets. The Kraken’s rockets do 75 damage which is more than the Leviathan’s but they shoot at a slower rate resulting in less damage done. While that is a drawback, the major one is when an enemy is right next to the side of the Kraken. If an enemy is on foot or in a badger, scorpion or any other small vehicle, the primary rockets from the Kraken will not damage them but will damage the kraken itself leaving the attacker invincible (Leviathan and Tiamat’s primary rockets will do damage to enemies even if next to they stand next to them). The pilot deemer from the turret will only do damage to vehicles and does very little damage to a foot soldier if they can dodge out of the way before the redeemer impacts. So while the 10,000 armor points, four different turrets, and stronger vapor cannon are all positive. The one negative drawback from the Kraken’s own primary rockets causes the Kraken to falter.

Grade: D-
The Kraken can be found on Pyroclastic (core), Redplanet (core) and Panalesh (node 6)

Tiamat
The third MAS, the Tiamat is the best one of the three. The Tiamat is the God of the MAS. The Tiamat was originally on MTMU-Randomizer so this son of a bitch was designed to take on any tank when deployed. The primary rockets are the same in damage and speed as the Krakens (remember the Leviathan wins in this category). The Tiamat is the slowest of the three and I’m not kidding, the Tiamat is slow. However, the Tiamat's speed on MagicIsle is equal to the Leviathan and the Kraken. The Tiamat features the same turrets as the Kraken however; the Tiamat on Evergreen has all twin beam turrets (which is a personal favorite). Although the Tiamat’s armor is at 5000 which is equal to the Leviathan’s and less than the Kraken’s, the Tiamat can defend itself against air attacks similar to the kraken and unlike the Leviathan. When deployed and out of the three, the Tiamat is the most deadly. The Tiamat’s vapor cannon is the strongest and has the largest blast radius of the three; or so it appears. The enemy should always know the location of the enemies Tiamat because when the Tiamat arrives to its destination, it will become a gigantic threat.

Grade: A+
The Tiamat can be found on MTMU-Randomizer (random nodes and core), Tanks a lot-2014 (node 5) , Evergreen (core), Grit-Badwolf, Severance-2014 (core), MagicIsle (core) and ArcticJunkyard (core)

Very nice. One more thing to note is that the Tiamat on Tanks-a-Lot-2014 has heavy-class flack cannons mounted in front for dealing with tanks and badgers. The Tiamat on Severance is the same as the one on Evergreen.

Um, Perses?

Edit: Just the deploy-able types? I'm not sure how it works.

Perhaps the Perses and Shocker are "sub-UBVs"

On behalf of Terminator, I'd like to see a Stealth Hover Mino-Kraken with 16 seats, and a Turtle-style shield!



Also, in case you didn't notice, Termi, most people do not use correct vehicle names even for the ones that have only one name, like the Arbalest. It's always a "nuke tank" or a "missile tank". Expecting people to know the difference between the various UBV's is like expecting people to be aware of the specifics of critical issues during an election. Ridiculous.

+1 for the Ship facts!

For me to keep the names straight I would not only have the desire to get in them, but also be forced too...

I will print this out on a tape it to my computer so as to do better in the future...

This thread lacks a Perses explanation and thus is un-awesome.

Binger, Carpe just said that because Krascher says that on HoC and Carpe just wants to look cool even though he doesn't know what a Perses is.
