A large, experimental mobile armor designed to resemble a dragon, BESPA’s ZMT-A31S Doggorla utilized the experimental new “tailrad” technology. The Doggorla’s long, tail-like body was composed of approximately 160 tailrad segments, each of which resembled a container, and some segments were also armed with beam guns. These segments could be separated and re-docked either upon remote command from the pilot, or automatically by themselves. If segments were damaged or destroyed in battle, these segments could be discarded and the remaining segments fused back together into the whole body. The tailrad segments, using their vernier thrusters, could also be launched as ramming weapons against enemy targets. This amazing new tailrad technology made the Doggorla an extremely tough foe for the League Militaire – and a mobile armor that was almost virtually impossible to completely destroy. The Doggorla was designed to be used in various environments; one unit, painted blue, was operated in space, while a second, orange-colored unit was tested in Earth’s oceans.
