Anyone have ANZs for *any* of these techs?

Most of them are nothing.  They seem to be place holders for tech that never made it into the game or it is that alien tech that could be found once upon a time. Some of them are very similar in name to other tech and I would suspect that they are errors in the database.  They probably show up on your list because you had an exploration hit on them.  The same errors int he data file also let you get research via explore orders on something that does not exist.

However, there might be one or two that are real or that have an ANZ that somebody has gotten.  Many of them are related to energy sapper creature knowledge and the tech, an entire tech line, that is undiscovered except for a few of the lower levels.  These are probably in the game and complete but nobody, to my knowledge, has ever gotten energy creature knowledge to open them up.

I guess that means that the ESAP beams are part of ESAP’s Fables….

I hope that Russ and Pete are ok what with the fire scourge in your area!

 

Happy New Year

Sure...at this point Pete has several new techs , but they are all ground techs.....

 

This is COMECH...

  -----ANZ (Analyze Item)-----

COMECH units are Tckon Imperial Assault Tanks increased dramatically in size and given rough terrain mobility improvements. They are much slower than their Assault Tank counterparts, making them inferior over open terrain, but they enjoy far thicker armor protection and provide heavy armor capability in broken terrain where Tckon Imperial Assault Tanks are less than ideal. A combination of the two systems is perfectly suited for fluid engagement scenarios.

ANZ: Intruder Mobile Tactical Guided Missile

Intruder Mobile Tactical Guided Missile:
The Intruder MTGM is an offshoot of the somewhat similar MRLS, but instead of launching

many smaller missile the Intruder deploys a single missile with a large warhead. Though incapable of widespread area of effect damage, the Intruder packs a serious punch at the point of impact, making it ideal for taking out hardened targets such as field bunkers, command posts and the like

From the Scinet list earlier I believe there is also some tech that is alien tech.  There was a brief period, maybe even just a few turns, where alien tech was discoverable doing EXPL orders.  If I recall the Transdimensional Shifter was a version of the a TWD and there were a couple of other things, including a weapon that ignored shields.  It was  along time ago and memory is not what it is, but there you have it.

Cruise Missiles.....

Cruise Missile Launcher technology has just been completed!

ANZ: Cruise Missile Launcher
Cruise Missile Launcher:

CML's are an offshoot of Intruder missile technology, taking the same basic idea but utilizing it in a very different way. Cruise missiles are much smaller individually than
an Intruder, but they are capable of delivering a variety of munition types, from simple high explosives to chemical, nuclear and even advanced orbital bombardment warhead types.

Slower even than an Intruder one might think they are easier to defend against, but advanced terrain-following guidance systems make them extremely difficult to detect until it is too late.

Fairly easy to research , opens up mobile CML .

I have a vague memory that Transdimensional Shifter was something you needed to take a ship on a one-way trip from Alpha to Draco...

ANZ: Meteor Mobile Tactical Guided Missile Meteor Mobile Tactical Guided Missile:

The Meteor Mobile Tactical Guided Missile is an upgraded version of the original Intruder system, packing a larger warhead and boasting superior range over its predecessor. It is intended for heavy impact on a single target and though it has no serious area of effect capabilities it does not disappoint in its mission, blowing great holes in bunkers and other hard targets.

ANZ: Mobile Strategic Ballistic Missile

-----ANZ (Analyze Item)-----

Mobile Strategic Ballistic Missile:
Mobile Strategic Ballistic Missiles are long range intercontinental weapons used to

deploy heavy munitions from a distance. They use ballistic trajectories, being guided to their targets only after reach high orbit. Rather than carrying simple high explosive warheads, they are designed specifically to deploy nuclear or advanced orbital bombardment munitions, making them ideal for encounters where long range deployment of heavy firepower is desired.

Some new ground techs......

Advanced MSBM technology has just been completed!

-----ANZ (Analyze Item)-----

ANZ: Advanced MSBM
Advanced MSBM:

Advanced MSBM systems are simply superior versions over the standard MSBM systems, deploying superior missiles that are faster, more massive and capable of delivering larger payloads to their targets. Nuclear and advanced ballistic warheads remain their mainstay.

Mobile Cruise Missile Launchers are simply mechanized versions of the original CML system. They are more capable over more terrain types and can mount larger Cruise Missiles which makes them superior in virtually every way over the original.

              -----ANZ (Analyze Item)-----

The venerable Meteor Mobile Tactical Guided Missile system met its match when the new Titan missile was developed. Superior in every way, the Titan no longer blows holes in fortified targets but instead simply blasts them to smithereens with its massive warhard.

It may be slow and somewhat vulnerable to enemy counterbattery defense systems, but should a Titan slip through it does not disappoint. Titan field operators pride themselves on the sheer single target destructiveness of their Titans, and with good reason.

That sounds like a duplicate entry from the Dawn of Time <insert 2001 A Space Odyssey music here>.  Technically they are separate items, so if you end up researching both of them, you would gain the benefits of both even if they are otherwise identical in stats.  Just one of those rare oddities in the item table (I see you, Lumber/Timber).

Yeah , right , Pete . They are the same.....

ANZ: Advanced Heavy Mobile CML
Advanced Heavy Mobile CML:

The Advanced Heavy Mobile Cruise Missile Launcher takes a step backward in that the launch system itself is somewhat less mobile than its predecessors, but it carries Cruise Missiles that are much larger and far more capable than previous systems. The AHM CML is by far the most advanced Cruise Missile system in development and it is magnificent in operation. There's nothing quite like watching its onboard camera from one of its birds as it flies toward its target, serenely taking in the beauty of alien terrain while moving ever closer to its pre-programmed target. HE, chemical, nuclear, advanced ballistic munitions--it can carry it all.
