The basic form of the MER-2 is that of a pair of treads mounted on the lower frame, with a freely rotating 'torso' attached to the top of the lower frame. The shoulder joints are ports that can support any two of a wide range of useful tools at a time. The 'head' is a cluster of video & audio sensors granting the MER-2 360 degree vision. Another difference from the other MER designs is the fact that the MER-2 was built with armour, 5cm of durasteel to be exact. The MER-2 also has an internal comm system in order to relay reports in real time to the command center. Finally, the MER-2 has a cache of small repair drones in case minor damage threatens to reduces its capabilities. In short, the MER-2 was designed to be able to enter & remain in extremely hazardous conditions for extended periods. Tools that can be mounted on the shoulder joints include gurneys, manipulator arms, extensive sensor pods, sample collectors, or a wide range of additional tools. An unexpected, but completely unsurprising wide effect of its design is that the MER-2 functions extremely well in combat situations. To capitalize on this ability, a few additional equipment systems were made for the shoulder mounts, including a heavy repeating blaster, a flamethrower, a mini-missile launcher (100 mini-missiles), & a sonic blaster. MER-2 droids with the weapon kits included are sold as MER-2/w droids.
