The Lithus occupies a strange niche in the Nian hierarchy - that of an industrial bot that is left alone. These ponderous behemoths complain little and communicate less; while their role is not the glamour of the fighting corps, nor the grunge of the harvesters, they know their position as the invaluable movers of massive loads. The Seth, Mesmer, and Gropho do not move out of the way of the Lithus, but they have no desire to step in the way of one working. No one understands the Lithus and its ways - but the Lithus does not expect them to, either.

Lithus is used for one thing only, moving large amount of cargo in hostile territories. Arguably the most tanky bot out there, it requires a coordinated assault with neutralizer support to take down. The MK2 version doubles down on the survivability, adding more slots to get more tank and having a demobilizer resistance to make it even harder to pin down. Having a second largest cargo in the game and seriously hard tank to break, it's usually the best choice for transport on beta.
MK2 bot is an improved version of a normal bot. Typically, it recieves additional bonuses, better fitting space, 50% more cargo and slightly higher speed when equipped. MK2 bots also require at least level 1 of Hi-Tech Robot Specialist extension and recieve additional bonuses from this extension
Aside from statistical advantages, Lithus MK2 gets a 1% demobilizer resistance per level and +1 head and leg slots. Please also note that 50% cargo increase on the hauler bot like Lithus is enormous.
