Smoke Jaguar Dossier: Marauder IIC
Name: Marauder IIC
Mech Class: Assault
Weight: 85 Tons
Tech Base: Clan
The Marauder IIC is based upon one of the most iconic BattleMechs in existence, the Marauder. It is ten tons heavier than its Inner Sphere cousin and is a great deal more powerful thanks to Clan technology. The 'Mech carries eleven and a half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor on an Endo Steel frame. It is to the credit of its engineers that no production variants appeared until a wellspring of new technology emerged in the 3050s and '60s.
The Marauder IIC is armed with three of one of the most powerful weapons in the Clan arsenal, the ER PPC. An enterprising MechWarrior can use volley fire to keep up a steady barrage. When enemies close, the IIC can add a pair of Medium Pulse Lasers and four ER Small Lasers to its already-destructive firepower. Twenty-one double heat sinks keep heat levels manageable.
Captain Nash's Analysis: Very Nice machine. Same weight class as the Warhawk and just as deadly. Dangerous at all ranges.
(OOC: Ok I realized that I had not put one of these on the table yet, and it is a rare chance that I get to run what I consider one of the best looking mechs in the game. So I took out the Warhawk Posada was in and placed him in a Mad IIC instead)
