* - The Shockwave Generator creates a gravitic shock that causes damage to an area, tearing things in its area of effect apart with gravity waves. While not very efficient on its own, multiple Shockwave Generators can act in harmony to tear a larger target to pieces. Every even numbered Shockwave Generator attacking the same target increases the damage by one scale (as high as Capital Scale), while every odd numbered Shockwave Generator adds its range to the total. (eg so 1 does 10D character scale to a 20m area, 2 do 10D speeder scale to a 20m area, 3 do 10D speeder scale to a 40m area, 4 do 10D walker scale to a 40m area. Right up to 8 doing 10D capital scale to a 80m area.) Although damage may not be taken above capital scale, the area of effect may be increased as high as 1km by 99 working together.

Description: The Mandalorian Basilisk War Droid was used by the Mandalorian Raiders many centuries ago, and are still remembered in some areas of the galaxy. These large early walkers were not actually droids at all, lacking any kind of intelligence in themselves, however they were extremely efficient walkers, and although they lacked an enclosed cocpit they still increased the combat effectiveness of their pilot by many times. The Mandalorian pilot would wear sealed armour, and the Basilisk would aid them in the drop from their orbiting ship, as well as helping to attack any orbital defences. The mass of weapons equipped to a basilisk allowed it to do a great deal of damage to opponents, however the majority of its weapons are close ranged due to the Mandalorian preferance for fighting their opponents close up, and while this hampered the vehicles in ranged combat, the sheer terror value of these walkers made them hugely successful and long remembered in legend.
