"Laurel is modern system used to sustain infantry in the battlefield"

The SLA-1 Laurel is an Agurts humanoid war mech standing around 10 feet tall. This is one of the few vehicles described from the Acid Rain World which is non transformable. These mechs can operate in squads as infantry support, for heavy labour or  independently as scouts crossing terrain other vehicles could not attempt.

Laurels have thick plated armour which can sustain a lot of damage and their ability to move quickly across the battlefield makes them a fearsome sight for the enemy, sapping morale whilst shielding Agurts infantry advances.

Laurels are operated by a single pilot who is responsible for both movement and operating the various weapons from a small cockpit. As they are operating costly new technology, it is possible that these pilots are ranked as Corporals (or above) and receive additional specialized training in communication, repair, engineering and navigation. The pilot is fully protected apart from his head which is exposed to improve visibility in battle as well as during variable weather conditions. This invites the opportunity for any budding enemy snipers looking to make a name for themselves by disabling a considerable opponent with a single well placed shot. As the Laurel core is not a fully sealed unit it does offer protection against the acid rain but not radiation, biological or chemical weapons.

The Sand Laurel is used primarily by the 88th Agurts in desert warfare against Soil Ghost attacks. The core differs from the Marine version in that this unit only has one humanoid arm with articulated hand, the other boasting a built in large repeating cannon. This option was possibly selected for the Sand Laurel to aid mobilisation against fast raids, an encased weapon will suffer less erosion in desert surroundings and also this adds a heavy weapon capable of bringing down larger vehicles (no shoulder mounted cannons have been seen on the prototypes.)

A painted Sand Laurel prototype was first photographed in the 3rd quarter of 2014, no release date has yet been mentioned and there is no clarification whether the pilot will be a new figure, an existing Sol Commander or Marine Corporal.
