Engineers and scientist consider this variant of Kopis the 'life
hack'. The original plan was to contrive a way to carry 3 medium
lasers. While this would provide devastating firepower it would
not be able to mount sufficient armor for an assault design.

This Kopis uses the detachable weapon mounts to mount the two
medium laser systems. Due to the bulk of the detachable weapon
mounts the ground motive system had to be upgraded to keep the
unit mobile. Considerable weight was saved by switching to
advanced armor. (Basically the movement stays the same while weapons are mounted 2MP -2=0 but 0 upgrades to 1)

Now comes the interesting choice: designers could have chosen to
bulk up the armor to 13 points, but they instead decided to mount
11 points and array of recon systems. While no one expects the
lumbering Kopis to be used as an advanced scout or to sneak up on
anyone, you need a small army to ambush it.

If the improved sensors sniff out an ambush at 60 meters it's foes
are inside the short range of it's medium lasers, or maybe the
shotgun microphone picks up someone talking about running a few
hundred meters away. Did something just move over there? Let me
put my search light on it!

Maybe you want to board a ship? Great news! you got a battle claw
and a cutting torch.

Need to pick up a screw or hold a  AP machine gun, we got you
covered with the armored glove!

What else could you need? It is the Cadillac of assault battle armor!

Wait...We almost forgot. Mission equipment, 5 KG (11 lbds) just
enough to hold some brewskies and ice!
