Title: Yamal/Kangaroo LKG-04
Post by: Dragon Cat on 10 January 2022, 17:47:15
This Design I first saw on Facebook.  It was posted by Xander MacLeod.  I'm posting it here as I've used it in my AU with the designer's permission.  I changed the design slightly from the Facebook design to include a Command Cockpit so it can carry a passenger in a secure area, I also changed the Command cockpit to the front for fluff purposes.

Overview
Overview
Designed under the name Yamal the Mech is more commonly named and deployed under the name Kangaroo
due to the Mechs shape and its rendency to jump around.  Originally the design called for a
 cargo pouch for transport but the forward cockpit was seen as a valid compromise.

==Capabilities:==
The Yamal or more commonly known as Kangaroo BattleMech is a recently developed Mech
deployed by the Capellan Confederation in its Augmented and Stealth Lances.  The Kangaroo
 is a sixty ton BattleMech and is capable of eighty-six kilometres per hour at maximum speed. 
It is also able to jump one  hundred and fifty metres.

The BattleMech is armed with four torso mounted Extended-Range Medium Lasers, it has a flame
thrower mounted near the left shoulder socket.
 The Mech is equipped with an anti-missile system for additional protection.  Finally the
 Mech has a Command Cockpit at the front of the bridge which can be used by command officers
 or be equipped to
carry prisoners.
