The Grunt Heavy Power Armor is a reverse engineered Jian Heavy Power Armor design created by Republika. However, they lacked the power generation tech used in the Jian, leading to a generator ‘backpack’ which uses a variation on a HEDM (High Energy Density Material) design that powers twin turbines. This system provides considerable operational power, but also makes it quite heavy. This also allows it to power a specially designed conventional rapid fire cannon. This cannon isn’t powerful enough to penetrate heavy armor, but is enough to take on most body and powered armors as well as light vehicles.
It has become fairly cheap to produce as far as powered armor goes and because of this become a main stay of Republika Marine forces. Boarding attempts on Republika vessels usually fail when soldiers in this armor get involved.
