Assault Robots are the second Tier of Robots that are larger and better armed than their Light Robot cousins. These robots require Basic Robotics four, its respective Racial Robotics extension at four, and Combat Robot Specialist one in order to be operated by a pilot. The more advanced Mark2 variants boast additional enhancements over their standard counterparts and require Racial Robotics six and Hi-tech Robot Specialist one in addition in order to be operated.
The line of Industrial Robots from Nian Industrial Trust follow there own set of extensions a pilot must learn in order to operate them that are typically separate from what is required to use robots used for combat. These robots require Basic Robotics four, Industrial Robot Control four and Industrial Robot Specialist one to be used.
