Yakuza crime families in the Draconis Combine have used their connections in
the Ghost Regiments to acquire several 'Mech chassis. Due to the Ghosts putting
their needs first however, the chassis are usually of late Succession Wars or
early Clan Invasion types. This is seen by all as right and proper as the
Ghosts must remain ready to support the Dragon.

Obviously limited in their ability to acquire military spec hardware through
legitimate channels, the yakuza are forced to use weapons and equipment cast
off by the DCMS. This frequently means MRMs and other less effective weapons.

In this model, the large autocannon mount has been repurposed to house two
Lord's Light PPCs salvaged from Panther 'Mechs. Three extra medium lasers were
also installed: One in the center torso and one more in each arm.

This refit is only viable because of the double heat sinks that the yakuza have
acquired somehow.

Battletech transport rules take a very feline approach to moving troops in a combat zone: If they fits, they ships.
