While not fast, the Atlas can take twice as much punishment as a heavy walker, making it best employed in take and hold style operations, or as close protection for its cargo while they conduct urban operations. Indeed one Atlas provides superior firepower and survivability compared to the pair of Junos normally employed in such roles, albeit at a higher cost.
The Atlas Bulk Personnel Walker uses the new, quadrupedal Type-11 chassis. The Type-11 is medium-heavy, highly resilient and deliverable by medium dropships. This makes it useful in a variety of roles which require more space than standard PHR walkers. The Atlas is best thought of as a walking castle. Its cavernous hold can accommodate 20 infantry in extreme safety while offering respectable firepower. Its pair of light railguns can see off most armoured threats while its twin miniguns can sweep deployment zones of enemy infantry.
Also utilising the new medium-heavy Type-11 chassis, the Lokheira forgoes the Atlas’ transport capacity for increased firepower. It retains the former’s light railguns and miniguns for excellent anti-armour and anti-infantry capability, but also mounts a twin rail-repeater. Single rail-repeaters are carried by the dreaded Phobos walker – one of the best standard anti-air units known to the UCM. A pair of these added to its other weapons makes the Lokheira weapon-rich choice of cargo for PHR generals who want the most punch from a single dropship’s transport capacity. While less flexible than smaller vehicles, a Lokheira offers superior killing power which can be maintained in full while soaking up damage.
