Edward Buck on the Brokkr system.[2]

The Brokkr Armor Mechanism is a 'Da Vinci' multi-axis assembly system produced by the Office of Naval Intelligence's Materials Group. Brokkr mechanisms are used to mount MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor to Spartans' techsuits, as well as to remove it.[3][4][5]

Design details[edit]

Brokkrs take the form of a multi-axis assembly, constructed in a fashion similar to Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man illustration, or an aerotrim. The central Mark IX Cambered Gyro Mount contains handles and footholds for the Spartan to stand inside, with a backrest to lean on. The gyro ring is attached to the ceiling via way of a R7-F35 Raised Dual-Ring Mooring and a Reactive Spindle Canopy, resulting in the assembly being able to lean back while in use.[3] In total, the mechanism is capable of holding the full mass of a Spartan supersoldier and their MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor or Semi-Powered Infiltration armor.[6][7]

To assemble and disassemble armour, the mechanism has two utility actuator arms mounted to the R7-F35 mooring, with powered multi-tools capable of grabbing and manipulating individual armour pieces. The base of the mechanism contains storage for MJOLNIR power packs.[3]

Usage[edit]

Brokkrs are used to assist the Spartan deployments assigned to UNSC Infinity and ANVIL Station. A mechanism was also situated at the ONI facility at the Avery J. Johnson Academy of Military Science, and was used in the MIRAGE IIC program.[7] Another Brokkr mechanism is also present at ONI's Ilex Facility.[8]
