Hand armaments: shield, attaches to left forearm, mounts double plasma cannon, power rated at 1.75 MW total (2x 0.875 MW); double plasma fork, power rated at 0.60 MW per head (2x 0.30 MW each), wielded one or two-handed in use.
A favorite of CSC Driector Sanzen’s aide Sekaino Megami, Masz was granted carte blanche to customize his personal Zwei Dolph. The performance and specifications of Masz’s unit compelled Browning to reclassify the YCF-015 prototype they’d started with as the YCR-015-1 Zwei Dolph Custom.
Masz’s approach to personalizing his CF proved crude but highly effective. He began by stripping off all fixed weapon systems and replacing the titanium layer of the Zwei Dolph’s armor with stronger yet lighter palladium glass. This streamlining gave the YCR-015-1 a lighter full weight than a standard Zwei Dolph while providing greater protection.
Next, Masz took advantage of this weight reduction to pack his combat frame with high-performance drive and maneuvering thrusters powered by Seed Corp’s highest output CF reactor to date. This combination produced one of the fastest and most agile combat frames in existence.
With his custom Zwei Dolph’s defenses enhanced to his liking, Masz turned his attention to the CF’s offensive capability. He first had Seed Corp design a new shield to his specifications. Though it featured additional reinforcement, the shield’s main advantage was the double plasma cannon Masz ordered mounted inside. The firepower both barrels discharged from the shield’s tip surpassed that of the XCF-08D-1 Dead Drop’s plasma cannon. Housed within his shield, Masz’s double plasma cannon enjoyed more protection and concealment than standard-issue Dolph rifles, which could explode violently when hit. This precaution anticipated enemy combatants taking advantage of the Dolph rifles’ vulnerability and gave the Zwei Dolph Custom a significant edge in combat.
Masz applied and amplified this doubling principle with his CF’s close combat weapon. A high-output plasma emitter was mounted on either end of a carbyne-reinforced staff containing multiple capacitors. The plasma emitters could split on command, forming parallel energy blades or “plasma forks” capable of disarming enemy CFs or simply visiting incredible destructive force upon up to two targets at once.
The Zwei Dolph Custom proved to be an unholy terror on the battlefield. Its combat performance rivaled or even exceeded the exploits of its progenitor, the XCF-08D-1 Dead Drop. However, due consideration must be given to the vicious intensity and merciless savagery of the YCR-015-1’s dreaded pilot.
