MBR-04-Mk X Defender Anti-Aircraft Defense Destroid
At the time the MBR-04-Mk I Mark One was developed, a version of the Destroid ambulatory system with the anti-aircraft Contraves system for use during the early stages of battle was also being developed by a Viggers-Chrauler joint effort as directed by the United Nations.
Each of this anti-aircraft engagement model's wide-bore gun barrels fires 500 rounds per minute, and with the combination of all four barrels, the Destroid can fire 2000 rounds per minute. The 78 mm rounds are fired by the Erlikon Contraves system at the muzzle velocity of 3300 m/sec. Since this system was developed for the purpose of super-far-range firing in space, it incurred especially high costs and significant difficulties during manufacture. The weapon bay and enclosed cockpit can detach from the main body. The ammunition feeds through the weapon bay from two double magazines mounted on top. An enlargened variation of the double magazines was developed for greater ammunition capacity.
