|Chronological and political information|
The XX-99 War Droid was the only Heavy Battle droids ever produced by the Templars of Twilight. Inspired by the B2 Battle Droid it featured heavy armor and armament. Its heavy Agrinium Armor protected the droid from heavy fire both ballistic and energy in nature. An Arm mounted Energy Shield allowed it to defend itself from more powerful attacks though this was at the cost of attacking as non of its weapons could be brought to bear while it was defending.
For Armament The Droid had Three Tiers of weapons, Long-Range, Mid-Range Energy, and Close-Range Melee. The Long-Range Weapon was mounted on the shoulders, and was actually variable. The Unit could be armed with two 12 count micro missile launchers, not very effective against heavy armor but lightly armored targets and infantry were easily dealt with. Blaster cannons could be mounted on the shoulders, with a small ability to track left and right and 40o up. Similarly, Ion Cannons could be mounted on the shoulders for dealing with mechanical targets, or two light asynchronous linear-induction cannons capable of firing 4 ten pound rounds each.
The Mid-Ranged energy weapons was a tri-barreled laser cannon mounted on its right arm, the blaster was very powerful but had a very short range only 100 meters. Within this range it could very easily punch through moderate armor. The Final, and closest tier, was the Melee tier, which consisted of a large Durasteel-Titanium-A claw. This claw was easily capable of crushing normal Durasteel, most bone structures, and allowed the droid to lift very heavy objects.
