VII. Armament



VIII. Armor

The armor on the Godzilla is the heaviest ever mounted on a mecha. The armor on most of the Godzilla  is composed of a standard lunarium laminar developed after the Third Robotech War. Aside from the good protection provided against projectiles, missiles, and other kinetic weapons, this armor is also resistant to plasma globes (annihilation discs), lasers, and fair against, particle guns too, owing to the fact that the armor can flake off and evaporate in layers under fire from such high-energy weapons, taking much of the weapon's energy and converting it into the latent heat of sublimation in the armor. The armor stops all small arms fire, and has good resistance to all weapons commonly mounted on combat mecha.

The armor on the front surface is composed of a standard lunarium laminar reinforced by a depleted Uranium mesh on the outer plate. More dense than the standard armor, this armor was designed to defeat projectiles striking the forward surfaces of main battle vehicles, and is also effective against beam weapons. The armor stops all small arms, heavy infantry weapons fire, and light and medium mecha-mounted weaponry, and provides excellent resistance to heavy mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the VHT's 120mm smoothbore shells. Indeed, no known military has a mecha-mounted weapon that can reliably penetrate the strongest portions of this mecha's armor. Only the hatches, gun-mounts, and other small targets are especially vulnerable, and the armor is nearly invulnerable from the forward quarter.

The Godzilla provides full protection from nuclear, biological, and chemical hazards, using an overpressure cockpit environment activated by radiation and hazardous chemical sensors, or manually when biological warfare conditions are anticipated. The internal consumables supplies can provide atmosphere for one week maximum.
