An improved version of the Striker, the Warrior is officially designated as "S-242 Terrain MA Mark.04." Military officials denounced the Striker's howitzer for its inaccuracy against the dominion legions when fired from a distance. Conversely, they praised its performance in close quarters, and they thus set out to create a new, even more effective model. The result of their hard work was the Warrior, equipped with a claw instead of a gun. This new MA functioned just as officials anticipated, and officials began deploying the Warrior all over Orience. However, as newer models began to take prominence, this model's popularity started gradually waning.
