Technical and Historical Notes

The SPT-BV-15C Braver was the Gradosian Empire’s main mass production super powered tracer. The versatile Braver was capable of operating in both a planetary atmosphere as well as in space. Its armaments included the standard knuckle shots for melee combat and a lasered gun, but it could also carry two optional missiles. Bravers made hostile first contact with Earth on October 3, 1996, when they attacked a United Nations outpost on Mars. Bravers were widely deployed during the Gradosian invasion and occupation of Earth. In 1999, some Braver units were equipped with an Earth-use atmospheric flight backpack that featured wings.
