Overview:
    The Whitworth, out of production since the forces of Stefan Amaris destroyed the Whitworth
    factory on Dieron in the final days of the Star League, has continued to serve well, mostly
    with Kurita and Davion units.  The 'Mech is a specialized design, too slow to run and too
    poorly armored for slugfests.  The Whitworth's forte is long-range fighting, but it needs
    the support of other 'Mechs to perform its mission.
    
    From its earliest days, the Whitworth's biggest problem occurred when a MechWarrior
    tried to fight with it at close range.  Even the first models were ill-suited for this role.
    Designers discouraged the practice by removing the short-range missile launchers in favor
    of long-range racks.  Still, many MechWarriors who had used up all their missiles would
    close to finish off the enemy with their medium lasers.  Too often, it was the Whitworth
    that got finished off.
    
    Recently, field modification kits have been issued to Davion and Kurita units that have
    Whitworths.  Techs in these units replace the medium lasers with Artemis IV fire-control
    systems.  This significantly improves the accuracy of the long-range missiles and removes
    any temptation to close with the enemy.
