================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Toyama, like the Buccaneer and the Grand Crusader, was designed and built for the Word
    of Blake following their exodus to Gibson. Unlike many other new Word of Blake 'Mechs, the
    Toyama was designed by an outsider - Dr. Thaddeus Anable, a military technology consultant
    with the Free Worlds League's Heliopolis design labs. As part of an arrangement with
    Captain-General Thomas Marik, Anable passed the design to the Word of Blake, who put it into
    production in early 3057.

Capabilities:
    Designed as a multi-purpose 'Mech, the Toyama can engage in extended operations without
    resupply. Its main weapons are a pair of Diverse Optics Sunbeam extended-range large lasers
    mounted in the right arm. A Doombud LRM-20 in the torso and an Imperator Code Red autocannon
    in the left arm provide additional firepower in short engagements. With storage capacity for
    two full tons of autocannon ammunition, the Toyama can carry a mix of rounds, allowing the
    pilot to tailor the 'Mech's loadout to his own preference or mission requirements. A cluster
    of lasers in the 'Mech's torso provides additional firepower, though their effective range
    is less than 300 meters and their tracking capabilities are limited.
    
    The Toyama also carries a state-of-the-art defense measure in the right torso: the
    Guardian ECM system, which limits the effectiveness of advanced targeting and tracking
    systems used in close proximity to the 'Mech. The original design called for an anti-missile
    system to be installed alongside the ECM system, but space considerations ultimately caused
    the designers to omit the anti-missile system in favor of a larger LRM launcher.

Deployment:
    To date, the Toyama has been deployed only with the Word of Blake Militia. Plans to ship
    several to the Atrean Dragoons were postponed when the Word of Blake launched Operation
    Odysseus, in which Blake Militia troops masquerading as the mercenary 21st Centauri Lancers
    infiltrated and sabotaged ComStar's defenses on Terra. During that operation, the Blakist
    forces used at least four Toyamas.

Variants:
    this version is one of 2 family refits following the end of the Jihad,  built using
    battlefield salvage.  In a somewhat funny twist of fate, the twin Blake brothers on Aquagea,
    Ivan and Alexander, salvaged the machines and parts following the destruction of WOB
    training base on their planet.  When the Surviving warriors of Demons Cutthroats and the
    Shadow Walkers fled here following the Jihad to repair and rebuild, they offered assistance
    to any who asked, in exchange for supplies and help establishing a new base.  While the
    Shado Walkers planet base "Shangri La" is still operational, they are currently unable to
    head home until they can buy off a jumpship crew. Which is their hope while hiding out on
    Aquagea.   the Blakes traded off high tech parts for lower end items, and then eventually
    signed on with the Shadow Walkers.
