Overview:
    The Refusal War combat data was for Clan Wolf in Exile, a rude shock in terms of mech
    design. Both newly produced and classic designs struggled to match several newer Clan Jade
    Falcon designs. The Night Gyr proved to be a competitor with the Timber Wolf, the Fire
    Falcon brought almost twice the firepower to bear as the Phantom and matched the pod space
    of the Fenris in a cheaper platform, the Linebacker struggled with mounting effective
    configurations necessary for breakthrough assaults, and the Black Lanner was a worthy
    competitor to the lighter omnimechs the Wolves fielded. The Turkina also proved itself a
    strong, dangerous combatant.
    
    With reduced manufacturing capability, the holes in the touman had to be filled, and fast.
    As such, Khan Phelan Kell and saKhan Marco Hall enlisted the help of veteran mechwarriors
    from both the Wolf in Exile touman and the Kell Hounds mercenary unit to design what would
    be a mech to cover the weaknesses of recent wolf design. Several design proposals would be
    submitted and evaluated by Clan Wolf-in-Exile Mechengineers.
    
    Championed by saKhan Marco Hall, the Cornerback is a design intended to hunt and kill both
    lighter, common omnimechs in the Jade Falcon touman, and compete with existing and potential
    future medium omnimechs. At 55 tons with a top speed of 97.2 km/h and protected by nine tons
    of clan grade ferro fibrous armor, the Cornerback is powered by the same 330 XL fusion
    engine in the proven Stormcrow. Mounting 13 heat sinks in the engine, the Cornerback's 20.5
    tons of pod space allows for a wide variety of configurations in a fast moving well
    protected package. It also uses several parts from other omnimechs, namely the excellent
    Model 92 "Hunter" targeting and tracking system from the Phantom.

Capabilities:
    A quick scout and skirmishing configuration, the A sports a suite of electronic warfare
    equipment alongside a respectable armament and jump jets. Two ER ML's in the left arm
    support an ER PPC in the right arm, and a LRM 10 launcher in the right torso. A pair of
    anti-missile systems in the left torso feed off of a ton of ammo, providing extra protection
    from indirect fire or quick strikers like the Fire Falcon or Jenner IIC. An extra pair of
    heat sinks manages the heat load quite well.
