|Name: TU11 Mobile Bio-Metal Fabricator|
|Vehicle Type: Mobile Unit Factory|
The Recycler is the primary building unit for the NSDF, and a necessity for establishing a presence in unclaimed territory. It is weaponless, but heavily armoured and able to withstand extended attacks.
In its mobile form, the Recycler can move freely across the battlefield. Once positioned over an energy-producing geyser, it deploys, exposing the massive construction facility stored within its hull. While deployed, the Recycler can regenerate its hull when not being attacked. The Recycler builds vital base resources and unit supplies, as well as basic offensive and defensive units. It does this by projecting ultralightweight endo-skeletal beams inside of its construction bay while generating extreme temperatures that melt its supply of bio-metal. It then coats the beams with the liquid bio-metal, and holds the new unit’s engines and internal machinery in place while the bio-metal cools. The entire process takes anywhere from a few seconds to half a minute.
In most circumstances, destroying the enemy Recycler can guarantee victory. Without a Recycler, it is impossible to "restart" the build tree. Without the Recycler, no Scavengers can be constructed.
Original Version Edit
The result of countless setbacks and revisions, the earlier NSDF Recycler didn't appear on the battlefield until late in the German conflict. Even then, its astonishing feats of engineering took years to perfect. In fact, it took an even longer period of fast, consistent service to erase the Recycler's stigma of being an unreliable and potentially dangerous device.
