Overview:
    The Toro was the Taurian Concordat's first indigenous BattleMech. First produced in 2481,
    the design was based on captured Firebees and developed as collaboration between the three
    best arms manufacturers in the Concordat.  Decently mobile and protected when it was first
    produced, its comparatively low cost allowed entire TDF battalions to swiftly be equipped
    with these BattleMechs.
    
    Designed for long-range combat, the Toro was armed with a Taurus WarWorks PPC and two Delta
    Dart LRM-5 launchers, with only the ten standard heat sinks to keep the battlemech's waste
    heat under control.
    
    During the Reunification War, due to the lack of short-range back up, the TDF deployment
    plan was to array their Toros in staggered lines so as to allow them to support each other.
    Another measure that the TDF took to deal with the short-range issue was to deploy a variant
    of the Toro battlemech, known as the TR-A-6b, amongst their forces.

Capabilities:
    Like the original Toro, the TR-A-6b has a pair of Delta Dart LRM-5 launchers for long range
    combat.  However, the 6b shines more in mid-range to close-range combat, as this variant
    mounted a Star Cutter 80cm Large Laser in place of the PPC on the left arm.  Though
    producing a lesser punch as the PPC, the Large Laser has no minimum-range issues, and
    produces less heat as well.  Besides the Large Laser, a Medium Laser was also mounted on the
    center-torso, which could also act as a last-resort weapon, in the event that all the other
    weapons were destroyed.  Finally, one more heat sink was added, though the battlemech's
    pilot should still carefully manage his or her heat wisely.

Deployment:
    Like all the Taurian Toros, the TR-A-6b took to the front lines in the Taurian Corcodant's
    futile struggle against the Star League in the Reunification War.  After the war, in the
    year 2598, the Star League shut down and demolished all of the Toro factories, and destroyed
    the surviving Toros of the Taurian Corcodant.
