In the year 2143, advanced warfare has become a high priority for the people of earth. In an attempt to reduce the amount of lives lost in battles, the development of mecha has been studied in-depth, yielding great results. An Axis organization simply named BlackArms has created their own Miniscule Insidious Unit, or M.I.N.I. Mech. It was designed to be an easily deployed, multi-function unit that could be easily customized to fit any situation. The revolutionary Power Pack was a portable energy source that delivered power to the M.I.N.I.s entire system and built in weapons system, which included wrist mounted gatling guns, chest lasers, shoulder mounted rocket launchers and a direct, Energy Burst Rod that fired off blasts of the Power Pack's intense energy from the rods extending over the hands. The M.I.N.I. could wield a vast amount of external weapons(to be added later) as well, and often did so in order to save energy. The Power Pack was easily removable and could be transferred to any other BlackArms M.I.N.I., which saved the expenses created from manufacturing new Power Packs. Eventually, M.I.N.I.s evolved into several classes- an Aerial Strike Unit, Heavy Assault Unit, and Long Range Unit(to be added later).
BlackArms soon began dominating in their military escapades, conquering many nations and churning out more and more M.I.N.I.s. However, a bold group of nations formed the WhiteArms Foundation, which was dedicated to fighting off BlackArms advanced warfare. At first, WhiteArms focused on equipping soldiers with anti-M.I.N.I. weapons, but it soon became clear that they would have to fight fire with fire. A brave WhiteArms operative, caught behind enemy lines, found a downed M.I.N.I. with enough of an outer shell and a fully intact Power Pack and set to work customizing it, resulting in his own Terrific Infallible Newtype Mecha, or T.I.N.Y. Mech. It featured a radically altered design, with slopes and a distinctive chest cavity that allowed heat from the mech to be vented far more easily that lead to a more aerodynamic, durable mech. A main contributor to it's increased speed and weapon power was that the Power Pack was integrated directly into the mech, allowing a stronger and more continuous stream of energy throughout the T.I.N.Y.s systems. However, it kept only its wrist mounted gatling guns and Energy Burst Rods, opting with WhiteArms designed anti-M.I.N.I. external weapons for combat. The operative was able to surprise his opponents with his new creation and managed to escape enemy territory, returning his design to WhiteArms, who opted for a more tame color scheme of blue and white. Eventually, WhiteArms developed their own classes, including Underwater Attack Unit, Aerial Blitz Unit, and Landspeed Units(to be added later), and the tide of their battles with BlackArms began to turn.
WhiteArms hoped to end the war with BlackArms quickly and asked the operative who constructed the T.I.N.Y. to research ways of improving the Power Pack system. His efforts were successful, though the newly improved Power Pack Plus needed a larger mech body to accompany it. After a year, WhiteArms debuted their Mechanical Archetype Made for Maiming Insidious Villians Effectively. The M.A.S.S.I.V.E. was a grand step forward for WhiteArms, and the operative was quick to use his custom model on the M.I.N.I.s. The Power Pack Plus was a radical redesign that improved upon the original in both energy output and functionality- the Plus was able to give a M.A.S.S.I.V.E. periods of sustained flight. Vents that could open and close cooled the now-larger arms and legs of the mech, which used a combination of physical attacks and new heavy anti-M.I.N.I. weaponry to attack. It seemed, for some time, that the M.A.S.S.I.V.E. was decimating the BlackArms forces.
Though they were pushed back to their original borders and had switched to a defensive, BlackArms was not done yet. They performed a daring assault upon a newly constructed WhiteArms factory and stole a large amount of data concerning the M.A.S.S.I.V.E.. Their arsenal of Mechs had expanded, now featuring A.I. driven M.I.N.I.s, M.I.N.I. Mark IIs, and BlackArms Beasts(to be added later). They were able to save on manpower with their new A.I. untis and could operate attacks in a coordinated, precise manner. Despite this, the M.A.S.S.I.V.E.s continued to beat back their forces until coming upon the BlackArms origin factories in the heart of BlackArms territory- where they decided to unveil their Gigantic Insidious Attack Unit. The G.I.A.N.T. was terrifying, boasting an Anti-M.A.S.S.I.V.E. Twin Cannon and a Beam Lance capable of keeping M.A.S.S.I.V.E.s at bay. Both were easily interchangeable, with many G.I.A.N.T.s on the field dual-wielding either Beam Lances or Twin Cannons. Some merely used their intimidating height, which was greater than that of a M.A.S.S.I.V.E., to instill fear in the hearts of WhiteArms soldiers and tear away at them with sharp claws and shoulder mounted rockets. The G.I.A.N.T. was a truly fearsome foe, piloted by man or A.I. alike.
But the worst was yet to come. As G.I.A.N.T.s swarmed battlefields and pushed back WhiteArms forces, BlackArms prepared to unleash their greatest invention yet, the T.I.T.A.N....

Power Pack Types (Includes Short Descriptions)-
Classic Power Pack- The original. Removable, reusable, and containing vast amounts of power, the Classic Power Pack was a marvel of modern engineering. It needed vents to expel excess power that would cause the overheating of the mech, thus, the Energy Burst Rod was integrated into most mechs that utilized it. Later mechs that used more powerful weaponry did not need Energy Burst Rods, as they discharged or utilized enough energy to keep the mech heat levels in check. The WhiteArms T.I.N.Y. used a specialized Classic Power Pack that was built into the back of the mech to boost performance, seen here.
Flight Power Pack- An improvement on the Classic Power Pack, it had large vents built into it that created a powerful thrust system, capable of flight. Mostly used on specialized T.I.N.Y.s and M.I.N.I.s because it is far too small for any other mech.
Miniature Power Pack- Used mostly on B.E.A.S.T.s and some extremely light mechs, this type had as much energy needed for a mech that used it- its power was proportional to the Classic Power Pack and used because it was light enough for small mechs and mechs without heavy weaponry. However, any weaponry attached to this pack was even weaker than Energy Burst Rods and most integrated M.I.N.I. weaponry.
Long Range Tactical Power Pack- A Classic Power Pack redesign, this model increased power output and functionality. As seen here, it retained all the original hardware of the Classic Power Pack, but featured a built in A.I. system that regulated power levels and had a radar that sensed other Power Packs in a 5 mile radius. This Power Pack was used mostly on Long Range Units, who used the Power Pack detection system to identify and snipe other targets. The entire Power Pack could be detached and used as a communications system and weapons platform, making it extremely versatile, but these features were rarely used. It was also very cost ineffective.
M.I.N.I. Mark II Power Pack- Classic Mark II- When the M.A.S.S.I.V.E. was finally introduced, BlackArms attempted to counter by improving upon their original Power Pack without having to design a whole new Mech- the M.I.N.I. Mark II's Power Pack is basically a small, but effective redesign to the original Classic- Energy Burst Rods were turned into a jetpack system, and the inner electronics and power routing were improved. This resulted in a Power Pack that did not look much different from its predecessor but functioned far more effectively and allowed the design of the M.I.N.I. to alter and become more dangerous- plus, with the discontinuation of the Classic Power Pack, WhiteArms could no longer effectively steal Power Packs for their T.I.N.Y.s, as these Packs would easily overheat the more simplistic mech.
A.V.E.R.A.G.E. Power Pack- A highly advanced redesign, this Power Pack was specialized for the A.V.E.R.A.G.E., modified to work effectively with the increased articulation of the mech and give limited flight ability. It was also one of WhiteArms only detachable Power Packs, as they hoped to utilize the A.V.E.R.A.G.E. as much as possible and would salvage Power Packs from downed mechs for later use. If this Power Pack had been utilized on any other mech, it would have undoubtedly overheated the mech, as massive amounts of energy were fired off like synapses in order to give the A.V.E.R.A.G.E. full use of its limbs and smooth motion.
M.A.S.S.I.V.E. Class Power Pack- The mechanics of the original Power Pack were analyzed to a great extent and this model debuted as the next step in mech power systems. This pack improves upon the Classic Power Pack in nearly every way- two Energy Burst Rods were built into the sides and discharge energy when the pack is at critical mass or begins to overheat, and they also serve as a method of increasing jump range, as they dispel energy downwards. The Power Pack was fully integrated into the M.A.S.S.I.V.E., which featured a revolutionary new joint system capable of fluid movement. The reason for this is that the Power Pack extends into the shoulder and leg joints, providing them direct power, and terminals at the elbow joints act as extensions of the main Power Pack, with the ability to route more power to one limb over the other, if one requires more strength or energy for firepower. The downside to this is that the M.A.S.S.I.V.E. Power Pack is rendered completely useless if the mech is destroyed- this model is not detachable like others, meaning WhiteArms has to continuously build more, and with greater ability, size, and energy comes a much higher price. BlackArms also used a version of this Pack in their G.I.A.N.T., though it had locks that could be ejected, causing the central Power Pack to detach from the Mech.
T.I.T.A.N. Class Power Pack- Not much is known about this Power Pack, but rumors say its energy output, cool-down system, and redeploy ability are unmatched by any other Power Pack- it is considered a focal part of the Dawn of Great Mechs. Further analysis shows the effective combination of each Power Pack Class seen before it- an A.I. system, powerful thrusters, and new types of vents, as well as a nod back to the original Power Pack, using Energy Burst Rods as Shoulder Mounted cannons this time.
T.I.T.A.N. Class Advanced Power Pack- The Innovator made some interesting altercations to the original T.I.T.A.N. Power Pack. He ditched the original Energy Burst Rod design and created a new one that would allow the WhiteArms T.I.T.A.N. to be master of the sky rather than the ground. He created a complex thrust system that used Burst Rods in each of its "feathers" in order to propel the mech skyward. Otherwise, the Advanced Power Pack was not much different from the original Power Pack.
GrayArms T.I.N.Y. Power Pack- Not much is known about this Power Pack except that it is far more compact and effective than any small-sized Power Pack seen before. However, that does not mean it is more effective than a M.A.S.S.I.V.E. or T.I.T.A.N. Class Power Pack.
GrayArms A.V.E.R.A.G.E. Power Pack- With the addition of tower Pylons to the Classic Power Pack, it was given a powerful new cooling system that allowed a far more impressive energy output than even the highly advanced WhiteArms A.V.E.R.A.G.E. Power Pack. This Power Pack needed a new Mech Shell, however- it could not fit well with the interface of the A.V.E.R.A.G.E. shell. So a new mech was built for it, one that had simpler articulation but could utilize the power output of the new Power Pack far better.
