This video shows surveillance footage of the Steel Ronin (Empire of the Rising Sun) primary and secondary combat functions.
Battlefield reconnaissance has revealed at least these facts about the Steel Ronin:
• The wave-force glaive -- The Steel Ronin is quite different from other Imperial forces because it specializes in close-quarters battle. This pilot-assisted robot is very effective against enemy armor divisions but first needs to close the distance in order to slash at them with its energy weapon. A single swipe of the wave-force glaive can severely damage multiple enemy forces clustered together.
• Get in line -- The Steel Ronin is not entirely unable to attack at a distance. The wave-force glaive contains an energy reservoir that can be expelled when the weapon's shaft is struck firmly enough against the ground. This sends a searing wave of energy coursing directly ahead of the Steel Ronin, damaging all in its path.
• Fleet-footed -- Although the Steel Ronin is second only to the monstrous King Oni battlewalker in terms of sheer size, it is remarkably quick on its feet. Armor divisions attempting to take advantage of their superior range had best make their first shots count.
• Crowd control -- The Ronin's wave-force glaive is so big that it is ineffective against smaller targets such as infantry squads. Even so, the sheer force of the weapon is likely to topple any men in the vicinity of the attack, leaving them helpless and exposed.
