Developed to increase the mobility of the empire's artillery units, this tri-pod mech was constructed in a facility separate from the Steelworks. In that sense, the A-43 Self-Propelled 175mm Cannon is not technically an MA. Semantics aside, however, the Nymurod functions much like any of the empire's other mechs and may be considered a magitek armor for all intents and purposes. The Nymurod's built-in rapid-fire 175mm cannon allows it to effectively combat enemies approaching from both air and land across a wide range. Designed to function as a moving battery, this mech has only one rear leg which absorbs the shock of recoil. Although this cannon is nowhere near as mobile as its MA brethren, its simple design lends itself to mass production, and the empire has deployed Nymurods to all corners of Orience since the outbreak of war.
Nymurods stand still and fire their long-range RPGs that explode and knock down all nearby units.
It is best to look for the incoming fire and dodge before it hits. Ranged cadets like Trey can fire at the Nymurods from afar in-between its attacks, or melee units can close up on them and attack them directly.
Nimrod, king of Shinar, was, according to the Book of Genesis and Books of Chronicles, the son of Cush, the great-grandson of Noah. He is depicted in the Bible as a mighty one in the earth and a mighty hunter. Extra-biblical traditions associating him with the Tower of Babel led to his reputation as a king who was rebellious against God.
