================================================================================================
Overview:
    The SFR-3D Spitfire was designed by Akula Corporate Engineering for House Davion during the
    Clan Invasion. Meant to give the Federated Commonwealth a hard hitting assault mech that
    could stand up against the invading Clan armies, the design was a stunning success.

Capabilities:
    The Spitfire is a first class assault mech, capable of devastating any enemy unit that gets
    in range. The Spitfire utilizes weaponry of differing range bands so that as it nears its
    target, the damage it can cause increases.  There is nothing fancy about the Spitfire, it is
    big, ugly, and effective.
    The Spitfire's main weapons are its 2 Magna Hellstar PPC's. While not the longest range
    weapon available to the Spitfire pilot, they are the most powerful. The PPC's are backed up
    at long range with a pair of Coventry Starlight LRM10's. When the Spitfire comes into close
    quarters with its enemy, it can devastate it with 5 Defiance B3M Medium Lasers and a pair of
    Defiance P5M Medium Pulse Lasers. The Spitfire is not a fast mech, but its 270 rated GM
    fusion engine does give it average speed for a mech of its size. In an attempt to put the
    mechs tendency to overheat to good use, the designers incorporated Triple Strength Myomer
    into the mechs chassis, and this has proven to be a wise decision, as the Spitfire has a
    tremendous amount of waste heat.  The Spitfire has no jump jets, but with 17.5
    tons of A.C.E. Type 4 Extra Heavy Armor with CASE, it has little need for them.  The
    Spitfire can take a pummeling, and still reach its target with enough armor and weaponry
    intact to make it a deadly foe.

Deployment:
    The Spitfire is deployed throughout the Federated Commonwealth, but mostly in traditionally
    Davion units. The Federated Commonwealth has taken delivery of 80 Spitfires to date, and
    have requested more of the mechs from Akula Corporate Engineering.
