The Axle Battalion are the highly militant faction of the National Army of the mechanic planet Krystiv-Delna. They are dedicated to improving the war machines of the army to incredible proportions, and are highly skilled at improving firepower of most weapons (known as "axling"). This makes them a very popular stop for weapons manufacturers who often seek their advice.
Axling usually improves the firepower of a weapon by up to 20%, though figures may vary (see Sweet rifle). For example, an axled ENT-15 in antimatter armageddon self destruct bomb mode once destroyed the Great Attractor in a testing universe.
