================================================================================================
Overview:
    The original design predates the Fall of the star league.  Designed to be at the forefront
    of an assault dealing and taking punishment fit to destroy weaker units.  This late remodel
    by House Liao is mainly just a revamp of their other new Pillager model the 5Z Variant.
    This units switching out its Jump jets and thus reducing its maneuverability and a
    possibility of holding open the range is a cause of some concern because of its reliance on
    its stealth armor and weakened but light composite internal structure.
    
    This unit is designed to be used with several In close fighters providing long range
    firepower while using the Stealth armor to defeat its foes opposing long ranged units.
    Strangely enough this unit is designed more around a support Mech lance and is often paired
    with mechs such as the archer or catapult.

Capabilities:
    With the Heaviest armor capable on its chassis and stealth system in place to eliminate some
    long range damage from even occurring this is a Mech designed to stay at the edges of
    combat.  Low ammo reserves  limit this Mech to close in ammo replenishment.  Its heat
    production with the stealth armor activated is a little beyond this mechs designed heat
    reduction thus alpha-striking with this unit may not be wise.

Deployment:
    As of yet this Mech is in production on St. Ives and an undisclosed Mech factory on Sian not
    belonging to Hild-co, most likely to keep the design from being solely in the hands of the
    unpredictable and sometimes disloyal hands of the St. Ives branch of House Liao.
