This mech was designed to engage in guerrilla warfare. Long periods away from ammunition resupply meant a reliance on Magna MK II Medium Laser and Smalltech Small Laser. The armor was maximized to increase field use, while the internal structure was refit with a new steel composite enabling less material and opening up 2.5 more tons.


None at this time.
