================================================================================================
Overview:
    Developed by the Terran Hegemony in the 25th century, the Mackie was the first true
    BattleMech. Based on advanced technology that the Hegemony Armed Forces (HAF) had been
    developing for decades under Director-General Jacob Cameron, the Mackie was the ultimate
    manifestation of Hegemony military might. The Mackie?s first combat trial was on February 5,
    2439, outside of Yakima, Terra. The pilot, Colonel Charles Kincaid, utterly obliterated his
    test targets, four remote-control Merkava heavy tanks.
    
    When the Mackie was first built, it epitomized the Terran Hegemony's technological advantage
    over the Great Houses. It was the pinnacle of military technology until 2455, when the plans
    were stolen by agents of the Lyran Commonwealth. Still, the Mackie had such symbolic
    importance to the Terran Hegemony that it remained in production until the start of the
    Amaris Civil War, although it has not been built since then.
    
    Incredibly, some Mackies survived for almost seven centuries, with some even remaining
    operational. One of them, and the last known operative in 3042 was in the Covington Mech
    Museum on Atreus. The head and partial torso of one was preserved in the Battletech museum
    on Solaris; another, taken from a Rasalhague military museum, was gifted to the Clan Goliath
    Scorpion by Clan Wolf in 3057, and in 3059, another was piloted by Horse Jade Falcon on
    Huntress during a fake duel. It is unknown if the 'Mech, which was on Huntress since the
    Jaguars took possession of it, survived the later attack by Task Force Serpent. Another
    Mackie was in the BattleMech museum in Strana Mechty.

Capabilities:
    Sporting upgraded equipment from the now missing Rasalhague museum,  Clan tech makes this
    once and only King of the battle field ready to reclaim it's former crown. Long range
    firepower is now provided by a pair of linked ExoStar Pinnacle ER PPCs in the left arm.
    After a target is beaten down at range a pair of Diverse Optics Type 27P medium pulse lasers
    in the CT allow for more accurate fire at medium to close range. For the killing blow the
    undisputed weapon of fear is a Series II Ultra Class 20 auto cannon takes most of the right
    arm. Supplied by 5 tons of reloads, this is enough to down any other challenger. To aid in
    the lethal application of force the left torso carries a Series XXX MultiTrack targeting
    computer to aid in shot placement. Cooling is helped kept in check by the use of 20 double
    strength heat sinks allowing the most seasoned of warriors the use of this platforms weapons
    at will. In light of the Mackies lack of mobility, a Series II AMS system is mounted in the
    head to assist in missile defense.

Deployment:
    Thought long forgotten by many, the Mackie was the fist successful bipedal war machine of
    man. With the Exodus of the SLDF a great number of these relics were taken in secret. Not
    forgotten by the new bread of warriors many seeking to rebuild the Inner Sphere thought it
    would be proper to wipe the slate clean with what considered antiquated equipment.

Variants:
    .

Notable MechWarriors:
    Many warriors take to the trials in order to win the honor of fighting in such a machine
    pre-dating the SLDF. The select few that do can be sure to make this returning King's
    presence known to all.
