Iron Cheetah Question
« on: 18 September 2023, 11:25:45 »
Just a quick question: were the Sharks the only Clan that were able to get their hands on the Iron Cheetah plans when Task Force Serpent destroyed the Jaguar production facility on Huntress? I don't mean the later sales of the Mech, but the actual production schematics that the Jaguars techs took with them post-Huntress that the Sharks were able to procure.

I guess what I'm asking is, what are the chances that any of the remaining Home Clans are producing Iron Cheetahs?

IIRC, the Iron Cheetah was an exclusive Republic ''Mech until the Wolves hostile takeover if Terra. After that, the Foxes went looking for new customers....
