==Overview:==
While the Constable was good at its intended role as a suit for Law Enforcement and other Emergency services, its successor, the aptly named "Senior Constable", was created to address some complaints about the original suit's design. 

The first complaint being that, even though an effort was made to make them look less threatening, the paired battle claws on the original Constable suit were still thought to be a little bit too excessive on what is supposed to be a civilian suit.  They were therefore replaced with a pair of basic manipulators, which function just as well, but looked a whole lot less threatening than the paired battle claws.

The second complaint was that the fixed Heavy Grenade Launcher and Cutting Torch found on both arms, and the single Modular Weapon Mount on the body, limits the Constable's options when something more serious than an unauthorized street protest occurs, such as when laying seige to a terrorist cell's stronghold, or repulsing a pirate raid that somehow slipped past the planetary garrison.  The Senior Constable addresses this complaint by placing an extra Modular Weapon Mount on the left arm in place of the fixed Heavy Grenade Launcher and Cutting Torch, while the fixed right arm Heavy Grenade Launcher was replaced by a Light Machine Gun, with only the fixed right arm Cutting Torch and bodily mounted Modular Weapon Mount and Searchlight left over from the original Constable's design schematics.
