Hand armaments: Prototype Dolph plasma rifle, power rated at 1.15 MW, 10 shots per magazine; shield, attaches to either forearm
Pleased at the prospect of fielding one of the first energy weapon optimized CFs on Earth but dissatisfied with the utilitarian design–which would form the basis for the CF-014 En Dolph–Naryal commissioned Zeklov Corporation to modify the prototype to her personal specifications.
Seed Corp had built the YCC-013-1 on an unusually large chassis to accommodate the oversized generator required to power its plasma weapons. Naryal took inspiration from her CF’s hulking size and an aspect of Vishnu from Hindu myth. She had her CF’s armor upgraded and redesigned to match her cultural aesthetic. Its original gray exterior was repainted entirely in gleaming gold. Naryal renamed her golden giant Jagannath.
Next, Naryal ordered upgrades to Jagannath’s drive systems. The additional rockets and maneuvering thrusters gave Jagannath speed and agility belying its massive size. The giant CF had come from Seed Corp equipped with a generator-fed large plasma sword and a Dolph plasma rifle prototype. Zeklov Corp tweaked both weapons’ efficiency to coax even more destructive power from the CF’s reactor. They also added a plasma-resistant shield at Naryal’s request.
The finished Jagannath was delivered to the Jeddah airport in advance of the new governor’s arrival. Naryal immediately inspected her new CF and declared it satisfactory. She began a regimen of daily piloting lessons under Jeddah CSC chief Davis, supplementing Jagannath’s considerable power with her own rapidly growing skill.
