The CPB-4 Garm was a pilotable battloid of the Global Military Police, and it was based on the QPB-4 Golem, in the series Robotech: The Masters.

Development Edit

Developed by the Global Military Police during the early 2020s, the manned battloid version known as Garm was supposed to supplement and eventually supplant many base military police units. The Garm, was used extensively in the later parts of the Second Robotech War as the high command became more and more desperate. The Garm were viewed as expendable troops and were pressed into duty to support units in the field. They frequently were given the worst tasks in the field and as such suffered a high mortality rate due to their slow reaction times.

ArmorEdit

The armor on the Garm was a new development in low-mass composite-materials Chobham plating that became the standard for all Terran mecha. Aside from the respectable protection provided against projectiles, missiles, and other kinetic weapons, this armor is also resistant to plasma globes (annihilation discs), lasers, and to a lesser extent, particle guns, owing to the fact that the armor can flake off and evaporate in layers under fire from such high-energy weapons, taking much of the weapon's energy and converting it into the latent heat of sublimation in the armor. The armor stopped all small arms and heavy infantry weapons fire, provides excellent resistance to light mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi 22.3mm HE autocannon round, and fair resistance to medium mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Valkyrie's 55mm APFSDS round.

HistoryEdit

In this respect, the Garm was a modest success. Though they suffered heavily against the Masters Bioroids, Garms took part in numerous ground engagements where the GMP came out in force. It is unknown if any of these units survived the Invid occupation.
