================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Mangonel is an artillery mech, plain and simple. Having it's own TAG equipment it can
    designate it's own close range attacks for Homing missiles. The MANG-02 has been upgraded to
    carry it's own point defense weaponry, thus somewhat relieving the need to have other mechs
    to protect it.

Capabilities:
    The MANG-02 mounts 2 Arrow IV missile artillery batteries with 15 missiles for each. Since
    the Mangonel carries it's own TAG unit, it most often uses homing missiles. This Mangonel
    has been upgraded to an XL engine, thus keeping all it's original stats and gaining some
    point defense protection. The additional armament consits of 3 Streak SRM-4 launchers that
    are one-shot models. This is usually enough close in defense to defeat any mech that mangaes
    to get through the Arrow IV barrage. However, it is still a good idea to have a few fast
    medium mechs around to support a Mangonel's retreat from opposition.

Deployment:
    The MANG-02 is, like the 01,  depolyed almost exclusively with combined arms regiments and
    mercenaries. Davion RCTs are the most frequently seen employing this mech, along with the
    Eridani Light Horse, Blue Star Irregulars, Barber's Marauder II's and the Northwind
    Highlanders.
