    A venerable design, both loved and hated in the DCMS. Paired with Jenners on bash and
    dashes, or with Kabutos to provide some firepower, or to give a Cicada some in close power.
    In short both a fast and jump capable design, never a great mech to have. But, at the same
    time no one ever manages not to find a use for the Assassin.
    The reworking was a further attempt to lengthen the shelf life of a design which is still a
    work horse of many lance and company sized raiding parties.

    A single cockpit mounted LRM 5 provides both some range, and the pilot some adreniline as
    most pilots find it scary to begin with. The medium laser in place of the right hand
    actuator provides a good shot and dependable long term weapon. The trio of SRM 2s feeding of
    a ton of ammo is both a good weapon, since it is critical finding on enemy mechs and
    vehicles. Yet, the short amount of ammo means that only 3 minutes of ammo exist at fastest
    rate of fire for the SRM racks.
    Variation provides an extra half ton of SRM ammo and an extra half ton of armour in exchance
    for trading off either the Medium Laser, or one of the SRM 2s.

    Dotting the landscape of the DCMS forces this particular design is neither clamoured after
    as a mech, nor ignored and reviled. Its both a work horse and a nobody in the rolls of
    mechs. Consequently its found just about everywhere, piloted by everyone and anyone in most
