================================================================================================
Overview:
    The official Star League Defense Force upgrade for the Crusader, only recently recovered
    from the Grey Death Memory Core my researchers at the University of Regulus.

Capabilities:
    Following the standard approaches pioneered with 'mechs like the Archer and Wolverine the
    Star League upgraded many of it's Crusaders by using lighter ferro-fibrous armor to open up
    space for various improvements.  The SRM launchers were downsized to SRM-4s, but were also
    equipped with Artemis FCS.  The ammunition for the SRMs was moved from the center torso to
    the left torso, allowing it to benefit from the CASE which had been installed in order to
    protect the LRMs stored in the same location.  Unfortunately the complex ammo feed to the
    right leg to the left torso was never perfected and often jammed in the field, robbing the
    Crusader of half of it's SRM firepower.
    
    
    
    (on a to-hit roll of two, regardless of other circumstances, the right leg SRM launcher jams
    for the remainder of the scenario).

Deployment:
    The Regulan Hussars have begun to refit their Crusaders to these specifications.  Despite
    extensive efforts they have been unable to fix the ammo feed problem.  Pilots have taken the
    problems in stride however, for they know the SRMs are safely enclosed in the CASE.
