  • Description and History

    The massive Jagd Mirage represents the pinnacle of Mortar Headd technological achievement within the Amaterasu Kingdom Demesnes and was the most devastating weapon designed by Mortar Headd meight Amaterasu no Mikado. A monster among giants, the "Green Demon" is a truly enormous war machine standing almost three times as high as the average 15-meter-tall Mortar Headd. Ensuring combat performance of such a large machine necessitated building a skeletonized frame, a frame that is functional but bestows upon the Jagd Mirage a rather emaciated appearance. The Green Demon's armor is only marginally thicker than a standard Mortar Headd, resulting in a Mirage not that much more difficult to damage than any other Mortar Headd. These design compromises allow the Jagd Mirage to move as swiftly and become as deadly as the best Mortar Headds even in spite of its gigantic stature.

    The Jagd Mirage has the size and firepower that naturally make it the most obvious target on any battlefield. To compensate for this, the Jagd Mirage has the most weapons of any Mortar Headd in existence as well as several additional capabilities suited to its design and function. The main weapon mounted on the Jagd Mirage is a pair of 20.04 cm (2004 mm) EB-501 Buster Launchers, the most powerful weapons in the galaxy. The "Twin Tower" Buster Launchers of the Jagd Mirage are so destructive that a single shot from one cannon was sufficient to destroy 5% of the planet Both. The Buster Launchers are easily capable of destroying large asteroids or moons and when deployed correctly, they can penetrate down to a planets core to destroy the core and thus, an entire world. So powerful are the Buster Launchers that nothing within 500 meters of the Jagd can survive the muzzle blast, forcing all support Mortar Headds to leave the area (the Jagd Mirage itself uses two active veils for protection). The immense Buster Launchers (which weigh 400+ metric tons) would severely encumber any Mortar Headd and so the ezlaser system is used for support. When not firing the buster launchers, power from the ezlazer is used to suspend the Twin Towers such that they effectively float when mounted upon the pelvis, allowing maneuverability as good as if the Buster Launchers incurred no additional weight upon the Mortar Headd.

    Aside from the main weapons, a veritable arsenal of Anti-MH weaponry is mounted both upon the Buster Launchers and the Jagd Mirage itself. For melee combat the Jagd Mirage is armed with a huge metrotekachrome speid larger than any Mortar Headd (a swing from the Jagd Mirage speid can reach to as far as 30 meters) and two spaads mounted within the armor on each hip. The "Double Nippon-toh" style speid can easily dispatch any Mortar Headd with a single stroke and indeed it dispatched Maiya Sukat's heavy armor Zakker with one mighty swing. In addition to all the numerous other weapons the Green Demon has a pair of 30mm coaxial lasers mounted within the eyes on the head. The Jagd Mirage also features two large active veils carried by the collapsible co-arms built into the Mortar Headd's structure (two co-arms built into each forearm/bicep and two co-legs built into each hip for a total of 4 co-arms). The two active veils are ideal for intercepting artillery aimed at the Buster Launchers but also feature reflectors for repelling laser ordnance. When not carrying veils the co-arms can also wield weapons but the co-arms primary function is to stabilize the Jagd Mirage, dampening recoil and countering instability during use of the Buster Launchers. The Twin Towers feature an independent array of weapons that include an auxillary buster launcher (full sized, but similar to the truncated launcher on the Knight of Gold) and four Biralkema laser machine guns (two mounted forward for anti-Mortar Headd defense and two mounted top for anti-air defense). The Air buster channels the intense ezlaser exhaust to create earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tidal waves and other severe atmospheric disturbances around the Jagd Mirage as desired. Of the more unique features on the Jagd Mirage are the Ejectors. Six Ejectors - independent satellite drones - are deployed with the Jagd Mirage to patrol around it for reconnaissance and superior battlefield awareness.

    In spite of (or perhaps because of) the enormous financial and engineering resources to create the Jagd Mirage, only two were built; the [L]-Jagd Mirage (assigned to Green Left, nicknamed Green Demon) and the [R]-Dragon (assigned to Orange Right, nicknamed Orange Dragon). Contruction began in J.C. 2992 and the Jagd Mirage was officially revealed in J.C. 3007 after which these immense Mortar Headds would dominate the battlefield for nearly 1,000 years. The Green Demon was the first to appear on the battlefield fully armed when Amaterasu invaded the Trün Republic on Planet Addler in J.C. 3159. The truly frightening power of the Jagd Mirage and the buster launchers was eventually revealed when the Green Demon and Orange Dragon both combined their firepower to destroy the Planet Kalamity Godarce on J.C. 3960. The [L]-Jagd Mirage was piloted at times by Bugle de’Leizer (Schaft) & Fatima Parthenon, by Amaterasu dis Grees Sarion & Fatima Majer and lastly at once by Upandla Raymu & Fatima Parthenon. The [R]-Dragon was piloted by Headdliner F.U. Rognar and Fatima Eatta and later by Amaterasu-no-Mikado and Fatima Est.
