Grasshopper GRH-2X - Ghost Hunter 2
« on: 28 July 2022, 03:36:15 »
After discovering the schematics for the GRH-1X, Republic engineers went about redesigning the "Ghost Hunter" and updating it to modern standards.

Using purely Inner Sphere technologies, the GHR-2X test bed ran into several of the same problems that was documented in the files they found about the 1X. After careful evaluation and assessing the suggestions on how to make the stealth system work on the 1X, the engineers for the 2X (with some help oddly enough from the Fidelis) found solutions to the stealth problems plaguing the 2X, and after several more trials, it proved its effectiveness.

Carrying the infamous Chameleon Light Polarisation Shield and Null-Sig, in addition to pretty much max armour; the Grasshoper contains a pure energy weapon loadout, with an ER PPC, 4 medium pulse lasers and 1 small pulse laser. 16 double heat sinks attempt to keep the mech cool, but should a pilot forget CLPS and NS are active and perform an alphastrike, they will get very toasty very quick.

So far republic forces are field testing the prototype, which has also been regarded as even easier to work on than the standard grasshopper, and even the stealth systems which are notoriously difficult to work with, are much easier to do so thanks to the Fidelis assistance.
