The Gurab is the primary ground assault mecha of the Invid forces.
Ill-suited for space combat because of its slow speed, it is perfect for long pursuits
through the rugged terrain of Invid-occupied worlds. The Gurab has much more firepower
than its smaller cousin with a pair of plasma cannons over each shoulder. It is also
piloted by a more-developed stage 2 Invid pilot. Never the less, the Shock Trooper still
remains a mecha requiring large numbers to be effective. It is rather small, and poorly
armoured for its size. The mecha has also appeared without the plasma cannons, this
unit known simply as the Gurab Trooper, must rely on its powerful claws to effect damage.
Most often however it is used as a general labourer in Invid hives or other areas of activity.
