Model number: ZGMF-2084

Code name: KAMPFER (Krieg Advanced Mobile Protector For Elevated Response)

Unit type: Prototype Advanced Assault Unit

Manufacturer: Integrated Design Bureau

Operator: ZAFT

First deployment: C.E. 85

Capacity: Prototype/Recon Model: pilot and co-pilot, in staggered seating; Standard: pilot only, in standard cockpit in torso

Height: overall height 19.5 meters

Weight: 76.23 metric tons

Construction: Unknown

Power plant: 2 x ultracompact energy battery, power output rating unknown

Equipment and design features: sensors, range unknown

Fixed armaments: 2 x MMI-GAU29A 35mm CIWS, fire-linked, mounted in head; 2 x MA-M04 beam saber, stored on hips, hand-carried in use; 4 x hand grenade (ZR21D high explosive grenade, ZR274 thermite incendiary grenade, ZR13Q smoke grenade), stored on hip armor; MG1B-2236 "Romulus" multi-phase beam cannon, mounted on torso; 2 x MX2200 beam shield generator, mounted on forearms

Optional hand armaments: MA-M24C high-energy long range beam rifle, stored on back, hand-carried in use; MMI-M116 190mm anti-MS shotgun, stored on back, hand-carried in use; MMI-BX104 320mm bazooka, stored on back, hand-carried in use

Technical and Historical NotesDesigned in the most recent inter-war period by ZAFT the KAMPFER is a new prototype MW design which incorporates into a basic MS weapons and technology that had been previously exclusive to GUNDAM models.  The KAMPFER is designed to function as a stand-alone unit, able to engage opposing forces with little to no assistance; as such the MW's design stresses functionality and fluidity, as is best reflected by the power and diversity of its integrated weaponry.  Aside from being able to function in a stand-alone role KAMPFER is also able to act as a recon/commando unit and has been equipped with a long range beam rifle to allow the engagement of enemies up to 15km away.  To facilitate all of these roles while abiding by treaty standards KAMPFER's battery received considerable attention from designers whose only practical solution was to simply equip the MW with two batteries, thereby enabling it to function for an extended period of time; it should be noted that even with two batteries KAMPFER's operating time is 1.5 times longer than that of a GOUF.

Despite these many advances the KAMPFER comes at a great cost and so its production has been limited to 100 units, issued to only the most qualified of pilots; even still its impact will be felt should any new conflicts arise.

As a high speed flight-type KAMPFER also can be used for recon missions, though in order to gain the speed needed the KAMPFER is forced to abandon all of its weaponry except for its beam sabers and CWIS.

Since I'm technically still aligned to Zaft.

This is the Kampfer I modified in Seed RPG back in the day. I did an initial conversion with limited depth in the weapon serial numbers. I kept the Kampfer as true to its UC version in terms of speed, and also making its lack of defensive weaponry apparent to give the enemy a false sense of superiority.

Also, the electromagnetic chain mine, the Kampfer's best weapon seems to be left out. Its very plausible in the seed world as it was accepted back in Seed Rpg. I left out the panzerfausts(Sp) since they are essentially can be compacted into the bazooka.

Your version is pleasing, but the heavy assortment of high energy consuming equipment seems a bit too much. Also the second battery will most likely never make it past Jenx.

Technical and Historical Notes

The Kampfer is a limited production stage mobile weapon that is a visual representation of the Coordinator Spirit. The unit has been geared towards both land and space engagements with high mobility and speed in mind. The Unit lacks the features present in standard production models like the Zaku or the officer exclusive Gouf, but the sacrifice to armor allows the unit to perform scout and offer Zaft a quick strike capability.

Although the Kampfer possesses great potential to be another of Zaft’s most deadly weapons, the parts required to construct the agile beast comes at a high price. Each part undergoes strict study and must pass several stress tests in order to make it to the production line. This flaw makes the Kampfer unable to have its parts swapped out from Zaft’s other machines. The Kampfer has made it through various simulations, and components have been set aside to create a prototype line of the fearsome mobile suit. The parts allotted will allow 100 pilots to operate it before the decision is made to make this model one more addition to Zaft’s growing arsenal.

The weapon systems are quite intricate, and are Projectile based to maintain the operation time for this fast paced hit and run model. The only beam weapons on the mobile suit on its standard frame are its twin pair of beam saber for close combat. The selection of armaments gives the Kampfer a slight advantage against standard enemy mobile suits. The shotgun is capable of shredding mobile suit armor but only if the pilot is strong willed enough to get the mobile weapon into appropriate range. The Bazooka is standard issue that is a piece of the Zaku’s armament. It can be outfitted to deal with aerial, and ground targets with a quick swap of its clip fed ammunition. The latest piece to add to the limited beam weaponry on the Kampfer is the MMI-M93A Beam Sniper Rifle, the rifle itself is a marvel in engineering allowing the barrel to fire a high velocity beam charge and effectively cooling it due to the miniaturized coolant system.  The rifle can withstand a mere four sequential shots in a row before the coolant sprays the super heated components.

The final weapon attached to the Kampfer is its Electromagnetic Chain Mine. The unique weapon is utilized best when the Kampfer is performing Hit and Run tactics against large targets, and heavily armored mobile suits. During the Hit and run tactic, the Kampfer can send a small electrical charge into the chain causing the mines to become electro-magnetic. The weapon functions like a whip, and extensive training is put forth so the pilot doesn’t accidentally attach the weapon to the mobile suit itself. After the mine is magnetized the whip is slashed forward where it wraps around it target, and the handle is pulled off like a grenade pin. After a mere 30 seconds after the pin is pulled the mines explodes ripping through thick armor in seconds.

Well first let me say, welcome back.  It's nice to see you back again, though I've done a little "retooling" of PLANT since you left; hopefully I've carried on the spirit of PLANT that you and hannahaki left to us.

I do like the idea of the Electro-Magnetic Chain Mine, I personally couldn't figure out how to incorporate it into the KAMPFER's design.  I also think its interesting that we both incorporated "krieg" into KAMPFER's initials and that the overall idea for the purpose of the MS is fairly similar between our two independent ideas.

Maybe we can hash out some of this and together come up with a working MW.

I would pretty much like that as well, the faster we get the kinks worked out the better chance it has to make it through the grading process.

Most of your information was quite informative to rehash what I did back at Seed RPG. We just have to think within certain guidelines, we can't really have speed/power/mobility all in one suit. So we should come down with some ideas, that we can combine together to make this suit fearsome, and a thorn in our enemy's sides. Since we already know a lot of Zaft wishes for this suit to come into play, myself included.

      From the oak podium Hitomi spoke out to the small crowd of reporters and foreign dignitaries who had gathered together that day.  Each one had come to see the new face of PLANT and to watch Hitomi's first public appearance.  Though she was nervous the long white coat that she wore over her councilwoman's attire did a splendid job of masking her body as it shivered ever so slightly.  With both hands Hitomi took hold of either side of the podium and glanced down at her speech.  When she got her cue she began to read and left her worry behind her.
      "As the newly appointed head of the PLANT supreme council I would like to announce my first act in office which is the addressing of PLANT's soldiers who are stationed throughout the Earth Sphere.  I call on each and every one of you to do your duty and to act accordingly as you have been taught to by your families and by your superior officers.  We living here in the PLANTs have you to thank for our continued safety and prosperity.  I expect great things from all of you and I pray for your safe return."
      With a sigh Hitomi turned and left the podium, ignoring the reporters' questions, they would be answered by a subordinate more suited for the banter the reporters' craved.  The event would last several hours during which time various representatives and personnel would deliver multiple reports on the current state of PLANT but what was done was done.  Hitomi Matsuko had announced her presence to the world and she would not be going away.

      Thwap, thwap, thwap.  Hitomi exhaled each time she struck the black bag which hung from the ceiling.  For the past several months she had been studying Taekwondo and she was quickly picking it up; already her sensei had told her that she would soon be ready to take on real opponents.  Of course such compliments were flattery to be taken only at face value, as Supreme Chairwoman few things which were said to her could be trusted.  Landing a succession of round house kicks to the bag's midsection Hitomi released the last of her frustration on the bag with a loud yell.
      Though this was an odd place to hold any sort of meeting Hitomi had wanted the soldiers she had invited over to feel comfortable and have the chance to relax, even though they were expected to arrive in uniform.  As her aide passed her a towel and whispered the time to her Hitomi took both casually while she calculated just how long she would have to shower and prepare herself.
      Since she had the time Hitomi treated herself to a long hot bath, after which a different aide came in and helped her prepare her hair and did some last minute fussing over Hitomi's clothing. Today her aides had selected a maroon red skirt/coat match along with a white blouse, while this attire was still formal it was also very low key and unoffensive.  As her hair naturally fell into place Hitomi waved her aide away and took one last look in the mirror before she left the room.
      Though an ordinary visitor may have gotten lost at the Chairwoman's large manor home Hitomi knew the hallways quite well, this aided her in achieving a speedy arrival at formal events and served a dual purpose should she ever need to escape the large home.  Pausing outside one of the houses three tea rooms Hitomi waited with an aide who handed her a plain brown folder.  Though she had memorized the names and faces of the soldiers she would meet days ago Hitomi had reviewed the list one more time before entering the room.
      Her timing was perfect and just as she sat down one of the house's staff members announced the arrival of a visitor.

      OOC: this is a slight character building thread for me. I am also using it to introduce my character’s father, who I need to most likely have made into an NPC. If someone wants to drop in feel free.
      IC: Michael was on his knees hunched over at the foot of the Januarius City Memento Stone. The memento stones were statues made by Michael’s father at the end of the Bloody Valentine War to honor the sacrifices of those who lost their lives and for virtues that Coordinators and mankind must learn to live by.  One was in each PLANT.
      The Januarius City memento stone held special meaning to Michael, and within a few moments his tears were falling onto the dozen roses left at its base. The Januarius City Memento Stone was “The Guardian”, and it was a statue of Michael’s mother, who died in the first war. Michael nearly broke the mask that he was now holding in his lap as more and more tears fell. Finally Michael was able to look at the twilight sky.
      Michael was filled with memories of the last time he was here a few years ago. When he finally stood up to his father and made the decision to join ZAFT. He was a stubborn man, who had tried to control Janus’s life. “Why mom, why did you leave me with him, and why did you die to protect other people.” Janus couldn’t even muster the energy at the time to scream. More and more tears fell till Michael just hit the ground with his right fist.
      After a few moments Michael stood up facing the statue. Putting his mask back on Janus turned and began to slowly walk away from the memento stone. His covered eyes were still showing the signs of his anger and his doubt. This is the right thing to do, I am walking the only path available to me right now. I'll defeat every enemy until I find the answers I want.

      The echoes of several footsteps could be heard through the hallway as a man in a black lab coat had been followed by several green ranked soldiers with papers in their hands with questions coming from each of them. Long flowing black hair having been moving with the body and a pair of crimson eyes that stared forwards had been of the lead scientist of Technology in ZAFT getting hassled by the army.
      " General Darlton and Janus want to know how the production of things are moving along? " One of them had asked while trying to maintain the scientists long strides. Kaze had been ignoring most of the questions and seemed to have had his own thoughts on mind. " Tell them it's moving along fine. " He had answered giving an answer which lacked detail. " Chairwoman Hitomi had also been wishing to talk to you about the current funding for the next few projects. " Another one had said out while the man's walk had increased in speed from the annoyance of the army. " Tell her to call me instead. " He answered in slight annoyance.
      Once through the hallway he had come across the main lobby of the PLANT and had planned to take the elevator to transfer out of Januarius and head off to other areas where he was needed. Having stepped in front of the elevator doors he turned and looked at the other men who had more questions and needed answers from the scientist at least. " I suggest sending the rest of the issues and pressing matter to my office. I wish to be alone. " He had said to them as the doors opened and a soldier was already in salute as he was standing inside the elevator. Kaze had smiled a bit and turned around stepping within as the doors closed to the soldiers who were about to follow him but were cut off, his crimson eyes turning to the soldier who was saluting him who was his son;Ryou Misaki. A pair of golden eyes who were hidden behind a few strands of the messy white hair which the boy had grown and left unattended to the natural messy order. Then again he was not one to talk, his own black hair had been longer that it reached past his shoulders at times.
      " You can stop saluting me... " He mentioned and walked over to the seats as the elevator had started to rise up. " Sir! " Ryou answered in response and placed his arm back to his side as he waited by the door. Kaze's smile having remained considering his son's attitude; Serious and Cold. He was proud to have him as a son, truly proud and yet there were...many flaws in that. Ryou was after all his finest project; A remake of the remaining information of Hibiki that he could collect without having been suspected. It did him no good, it was a failure in the end and the result caused a conflict between him and his assistant who had believed in a different theory than he did. In the end it resulted in him doing it alone and causing the womb of his wife to turn into a chamber for where he could create at least something similar to the man's hoped for work.
      Kaze had realized it now that the remnants he received were not enough information. And the cost of information made him create a failed coordinator; Ryou. Humanity's desire itself was the improve upon itself and Kaze wished for the same, he wanted to make that ultimate being and help the Coordinator's realize their true function: Help Humanity. George Glenn himself had wished for that desire, yet with the recent issue of Coordinators and Naturals it truly had strayed from that past.
      Coordinator's turned ambitious and seeked an identity for themselves. Dubbing themselves a New Species, A Better Species, An Improved Species. And of course with such arrogance in themselves they believed that the people of Earth were things of the past and a step lower in the evolutionary scale. Even now it does not change. People's eyes have grown accustomed to seeing them as 'Naturals' and yet what were Coordinators themselves - 'Unnatural'? The answer itself is No. George Glenn was wrong, Coordinators were no different than Naturals themselves. We have to study, train, adapt and grow old like any other human being. Coordinators are no different, just an arrogant race that in the end started a War simply to dub themselves the true rulers of Humanity.
      Humans, or Naturals as they liked to be called are no better themselves. If Coordinators did not exist, their blames would be put to themselves and thus would hate one another. The Planet called Earth would simply be filled with humans hating one another with racism. The government themselves couldn't handle all the issue so they instead blame the Coordinators and PLANTS. 'United in Hatred', as one can picture. The President, Countries and Nations, they all help one another for a sole purpose: Hatred for Coordinators. An easy answer for the government and people who are confused as to why they're poor or have civil issues. Truly...Humans are-
      " Dad? " Kaze had opened his eyes to realize that he was lost in thought and had closed his eyes. Having been at the top floor already with his son having placed a hand on his shoulder to bring him back into reality. " How have things been with your team? " He had asked his son as the boy stood up straight once more with a somewhat blank face. " I can't complain....other than the lack of experience for the captain. " He had mentioned as Kaze already knew of that, but it couldn't be helped. " Your not the only one. Other teams are starting fresh... " He mentioned as he had looked over the papers and was thinking of what mobile suit would be best for each person. " I guess... " Ryou had said with a shrug of the shoulders as he titled his head back a bit and looked to the side to the city through the elevator glass.
      As he stared at his son with the blank look of his son and innocence in soldiers Kaze had realized how War had changed from wanting trained personnel to wanting young children grow into battle itself. There was also an issue of Coordinators themselves making soldiers for the sole purpose of fighting. Those who are legends in battle and are the perfect soldiers, they are the ones who's genes are entered within other infants until they can make a perfect copy; A Clone. Yet this itself has it's own issues and that's something Kaze himself had been ordered to fix...not that it's public information or even known to most of the chairmen and chairwomen in the council. He wondered himself if Hitomi knew of this.
      Kaze had realized he spent his time within the elevator long enough so he had stood up and started to walk out and down another long hallway with his son 3 steps behind him. " I'll be needing some time in a room. " He mentioned as Ryou had given a serious 'Sir!' remark back to him and lead him to a room for the time being until a ride was ready to take him back. " Um..what about...meetings and people? " He had asked his father who's simple response was: " Just put them in a meeting room around here and I'll get to them. " He answered and closed the door.
      Kaze had sat down behind a desk and opened a laptop with a new email having been received from an Anonymous address which told him ' Continue the Process'. " What a joke...like you're not satisfied with the last two wars... " He whispered, sighing as he opened up a folder and watched the data from the previous wars. " Whether there will be  peace or war...no one but them will know. " He whispered as he turned and opened the window to see the stars outside at least. " At least the stars will be witnesses to Humanity...even now we're traveling beyond the original bounds that's been placed in front of us...and we're repeating the same mistakes.. " He whispered, closing his eyes once more and contemplating the rest of what he had gotten over time.
      Ryou on the other hand was running through the corridor in a hectic speed. " Damn it...why'd you leave me to manage all your meetings with people. " He whispered as he didn't even know who wished to speak with the man. This was all too troublesome....

      " And who's mind did this come from? "
      The room was dark at the time as the night had entered itself into the PLANT leaving only streetlights from the window to enter as a figure was sitting on his chair and staring outside, a computer having been on the table who which he had his back upon. The screen having shown that there was a online talk with another figure who's face was hidden. Kaze's eyes having stared outside as his head was supported by his hand, his lips having been barely open as he was wondering what else to say at the new decision having been handed out.
      " It's not a matter to you. It's an Order from you're superiors. The current tension between the EA and USSA require more direction. "
      The voice was filled with voice modifications, having been impossible to decode considering the amount of different additions and warping in tone. Kaze had attempted to change it himself but the data left over from the conversation would be completely deleted as if the call was never made. " The Assumed Creation of Suits. Yes, I've heard. " Kaze mentioned.
      " The PLANT's themselves are worried that this may turn into a global war for the planet. A new Leader of your status and capabilities would be better. "
      " And of Hitomi? " He had asked wondering what she'd take of this news. The woman had recently become the leader and such a thing may discourage her. If anything threaten her.
      " She will remain as she is. Consider it a cooperative Leadership. "
      He sighed, this was too sudden to take already. Having turned his seat around to look at the computer screen he had spotted the shine of glass and peered over to a chess board with glass pieces of black and white having been on the corner. " Do you wish for me to end up like the previous chairman? " He had asked referring to his teacher in medicine.
      " He served his purpose. That is all. "
      No answer like always, Kaze's eyes having darted back to the screen as he gave a disappointed look. " I understand. Keep my updated, though communication from now will be more harder to keep. " He had mentioned as he wondered how they would manage.
      " It had never stopped us before. If we do not communicate, a file will be in your computer from the next move. Remember Kaze, do not disappoint us unless you want your experiment to become public. "
      His hand twitched while his body remained calm, the fingers tightening a grip on the arm rest as he closed his eyes. " You wish to blackmail me using my Son? " He had mentioned, having understood they would take the chance would do it.
      " You've changed. Before you had called him a God, A Failed Experiment, and now a Son. Don't let yourself get attached. It will cloud your judgment. "
      He opened his eyes again to stare at the screen. " I call him Hope. A life that I've played God in, the same would go for her father also. " He mentioned having known the girl must have been his son of all others.
      " Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness. We have no further progress with this conversation. We will contact you when it's needed. "
      The screen had turned black as the computer shut down completely. A weak sigh escaping Kaze's mouth as his hand moved from supporting his cheek to his head, a weak smile forming. " It's all up to their Will then. " He whispered.
      News networks had spread fast and moved to the PLANT's as the sudden spark of political debate had come up of a second Leader. It was a first for Coordinators, having a Cooperative leadership between two entities. The PLANT Supreme Council members having been arguing with themselves as they wondered how such a notion had passed and what it would affect in the future, it was rather unexpected for all of them.
      " A Second Supreme Leader?! The PLANT's will just end up in more confusion! "
      " Considering our previous ones we will need in case one does as the previous two! It'd be better if Kaze is elected, he's the leading scientist of Technology for the PLANT's. Who else?! "
      " For now we'll have to accept it. Whether he steps up or not we'll see. Besides this conversation is not worth our breath. The current issues of Mobile suits being made by USSA and in South America should be our main focus. "
      The Council had sighed in frustration, silence finally overtaking the room as a few members looked over to the empty seats as some couldn't make it. The meeting was rather unexpected so it wasn't surprising. Kaze o nthe other hand had to make it to the city in a car that was continually watched by news and several questions being shot at him as he made his way slowly to podium where he would make the speech, the room having been filled with several news networks from which he guessed a few were from Earth and ORB. Never the less there were a few soldiers at his sides that were prepared to defend him if needed.
      " I've come to talk about the speculation and rumors that have been going around. And they are true, I will be become the second Chairman of the PLANT's. Regarding my partner Hitomi she will remain also in control so this will be a cooperative leadership. It's rather sudden but for the progress of the PLANT's I feel as if I had no choice to deny it. As many as you know I am also the leading scientist for the military of ZAFT and you may be worried my views are towards War when they're completely far from it. I have been a doctor before and know full well the pain and loss of War. That's why...I wish to ask for a chance. That is all, I'll take no questions. "
      The speech was short but he had no desire to continue, having turned as a few people started to shout out questions and come close to him which made the soldiers and bodyguards start to move as they stopped them as he came out the door and into the main room of the Supreme Council building. Having sighed as he turned to look at the rock of the whale like creature that the first coordinator had brought back from space. Having smiled he opened his mouth and spoke:
      " Those who have a gift fail to understand the feelings of those who don't and those who don't envy those who do. "
