The Battleframes

Since the advent of crystite reactors, MEK systems (Mechanically Enhanced Kinetics) have come into their own as an essential part of any battleforce. Before CP (crystite power) powerplants, MEK systems were largely the realm of heavy industry or short duration uses, such as the popular Holmgang battleframe sports. Military grade frames are primarily manufactured by Enermax, Inc., who remain the largest supplier of weapon systems in the world.
