The Hydra is a superweapon designed by the Methridians. it is coloured a deep blue, and has three legs.
The Hydra is armed with 4 antipersonnel turrets and one experimental THEL, for armor and artillery defense. It has ten meters of armor, and stands at one hundred yards tall. It also has a tractor beam in its mid-section that lowers troops or absorbs scrap from destroyed vehicles, and can do many other things to make additions or repairs. It is commanded by a huge group of Methrid worms.
The Hydra is normally dropped from a supply ship just inside the atmosphere. It can also be dropped directly onto a base, suffering little to no damage, however from high altitude it is extremely inaccurate.
