St. George-class Slayer Mecha

The St. George-class Slayer Mecha is designed to hunt Space Drakes in groups of 2-6. The Slayers maneuver to stay out of reach of the Drakes' powerful teeth and tails while harrying it with their laser rifles.

One Slayer will attempt to jam radio transmissions with his tactical array to keep the Drake from calling to more of its kind for aid.
