The TU-I/MRV Turma Multirole Vehicle is being steadily introduced to the Herosine Imperial Army. The Turma is built with the latest Herosine technology, taking many of the ideas field-tested on the Eques and expanding on them. Like the Eques, it has modular components and nano-replicators. However, the limitations of the technology in re-structuring (or at least re-structuring quickly) required the Herosines to – for the moment – abandon their plan of a fully reconfiguring vehicle and settle for a more conventional modular one.
The Turma hull carries two forward-fixed warhead launchers, which carry a typical load of 18 rockets and four light torpedoes.
The Herosine Empire currently has four module configurations in the field.
The second module is the Command Vehicle variant. This version has two point-defence turrets and considerable additional shields in addition to its command suite.
