Homebrew Reference Book: Clone Wars Saga Edition Fan Sourcebook - Vehicles and VesselsThe Protodeka was designed by the Colicoid Creation Nest to be a powerful siege weapon for the Confederacy. This tank had a powerful array of weaponry capable of wiping out columns of Republic Vehicles and infantry or easily blasting down defensive barriers to allow more conventional forces direct access to the enemy. The Protodeka was prohibitively costly, limiting its production, despite its proficiency at siege warfare. It saw limited use at Raxus Prime and Thule, where it was soundly defeated in each instance by a Jedi-piloted TX-130 Saber-Class Fighter Tank. The poor performance in its trial run caused the Separatists to fund other projects, and the lead designer of the Protodeka was locked up in the Fortress of Axion by his own people for the costly failure.
The Protodeka Tank Droid has a number of experimental weapons mounted on it, allowing it to defeat a variety of threats. The rapid-fire turbolasers are automatically braced, reducing the Autofire penalty to -2 (Instead of the normal -5 penalty). The Homing Concussion Missiles Launchers gain a +3 bonus to attack rolls based on their sophisticated homing software package. These can also be Fire-Linked to increase the damage output. The crown jewel, however, is the Seismic Emitter, which is a defensive weapon designed to prevent Jedi and Commando attacks with Lightsabers or shaped charges on its relatively unarmored aft end. When activated, the Seismic Emitter makes an attack against everything within a 4-square radius around itself, without causing itself any damage.
