Marauder MAD-2R GX
« on: 11 August 2022, 18:17:26 »
Gunslingers were a thing during the original Star League, and they often had very customised rides to support their dueling ability.

Many gunslinger prototypes never even reached the manufacturing stage, however this Marauder variant apparently saw combat, however due to an unlucky accident it never survived its first showing...and thus was lost to the mists of time.

The MAD-2R GX, packed in Ferro Fibrous armour, Endo Steel Frame and and XL engine, to allow the Marauder a crusing speed of 54kph, topping at over 80 on the run, however in short bursts it could use its super charger to reach speeds of over 100kph, in fact it was this super charger that caused the mech to lose its first Duel, and be defeated by default (it also didnt help that the Kuritan mech it was opposing managed to land a gauss rifle to the Marauder's head...). However in trials the mech was flawless, and even the SLDF was interested in a faster harder hitting Marauder.

The loadout was pretty straight forward, if a little exotic, a Snub nosed PPC and medium pulse laser were in each arm, a ER PPC was in the left torso (but like most marauders, it was hanging over the head), and 2 medium lasers in the centre torso and head round out the weapons package. 16 Double heatsinks are overworked, but with careful weapons selection when in combat overheating shouldnt be an issue.

But sadly due to some bad luck it never really saw the light of day...
