After the success of the Smokey Bear PA the techs worked on a work unit that cold defend it self from a moderate attack. After working on the project for several months the kids at the middle school came up with the idea of styling it after a famed North American folklore hero. The winner's family of the "Choose the hero" contest received an Oaktech Polaris Ranger. The hero that won was Paul Bunyan, he was chosen for more than one reasons not the least of which was the fact that his persona fit the frame they had already built.
Paul Bunyan Battle/Logging Power Armor
Prototype date: PA59
Production date: PA63
Model Type: Oak0002
Class: Oaktech Heavy Work/Medium Battle Exoskeleton
M.D.C. by Location:
Arms (2) -- 150 each
Legs (2) -- 180 each
*Head -- 80
**Main Body -- 270
*Destroying the head will eliminate all forms of optical enhancement and sensory systems. The pilot must now rely on his or her own vision and senses. No power armor combat bonuses to strike, parry, and dodge! Note: The head is a small and difficult target to hit. Thus it can only be hit when a character makes a called shot and even then the attacker is -3 to strike.
**Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body will shut the armor down completely, making it useless.
Running: 80 mph maximum. Not that the act of running does tire out its operator, but at 10% of the usual fatigue rate thanks to the robot exoskeleton.
Leaping: The powerful robot legs can leap up to 25 feet high or across.
Height: 10 feet
Width: 4.75 feet
Weight: 683 lbs
Physical Strength: Equal to a P.S. 55
Cargo: 1 pistol and a survival kit
Power System: Nuclear; average life is 20 years.
Market Cost: 2.7 million credits for the basic unit.

Voice Actuated Locking System:
an automatic locking system seals the hatches. A six digit spoken code programmed to a specific voice(s) pattern (six-voice memory) is standard operating procedure. A manual keypad is provided in case of system failure/override.
Complete Environmental System:
A mega-damage compartment that is air tight, pressurized and suitable for use in all hostile environments, including under water (500 foot max. depth) and space. The following features are included.
Computer controlled life-support system.
Internal cooling and temperature control.
Computer controlled, independent oxygen supply and purge system that automatically engages in low oxygen or contaminated air environments.
Eight-hour oxygen supply.
Insulated, high temperature resistant shielding for up to 350 degrees centigrade. Normal fires do no damage. Nuclear, plasma, and magic fires do full damage.
Polarized and light sensitive/adjusting tinted visor.
