The TAURIS DEUX is one of a limited selection of battle frames manufactured by the civillian mech company, UNIMECH industries and is supplied to, amongst others, the forces of the united peacekeepers (see other OMC folder).
The TAURIS is a medium weight battle frame designed for open conflict and heavy weapons support in front line situations.
the Armourments are varied as well as deadly, consisting of - Left shoulder mounted rapid fire auto cannon firing depleted uraniuim armour piercing rounds, chest mounted grapples for snaring smaller enemy mechs and vehicles before striking the killing blow, heavy duty manipulators, capable of rending steel like paper and the most deadly weapon of all, the Right shoulder mounted X760 long range tactical plasma cannon which is used for descimation of enemy strongholds and dispercement of enemy ranks.
The TAURIS DUEX also incorporates a electron umbrella:- a shield generator that produces a a field of highly agitated electrons that surround the TAURIS and disrupts the atomic field of enemy rounds. this, although a powerful shield, does not make the TAURIS impervios to all forms of weaponry....but most of them.
