================================================================================================
Overview:
    While many at D&K Creation studios continued to work on a variety of expensive but competent
    BattleMechs, a team was created to continue the trend of relatively inexpensive, relatively
    hardy designs that would be far more appealing to a mass market. Lead by the same head
    designer of the Reefback BattleMech, it was decided to create a sister chassis that would
    function excellently in urban combat and in anti-infantry duties while still remaining a
    competent threat.
    
    More specifically, the design documentation called for an urban assault platform that would
    be fast enough to keep up with the most common of 'Mechs deployed en masse, carry enough
    armor to last within a combat zone as much as its contemporary chassis tonnage could
    feasibly allow, and finally run cool enough so that any mechwarrior piloting the chassis
    could reasonably be expected to fire an Alpha Strike at every available possibility should
    they be in range.
    
    It was from these key design principles that the Crashfish was created. While not a
    revolutionary combination of arms, it is the hopes of the design team that this product will
    see use alongside its sister chassis the Reefback.

Capabilities:
    At 50 tons, and with a squat, narrow profile, the Crashfish is powered by a 250 rated
    standard engine to allow it a standard 86.4 KPH at a run. While its narrow profile and
    proficient run speed are a boon, it should be noted that it cannot take full advantage of
    its loadout as it lacks the vertical maneuverability of jump jets, of which it can mount
    five. The decision to remove the chassis' ability to jump was a rather late design decision,
    but was decided upon to maximize its ability to deal damage towards the pilot's enemies.
    
    For its primary armament, it was decided that a Plasma Rifle mounted in the right arm with
    two tons of ammunition loaded into the right torso was suitable for its stated mission. To
    further supplement its assigned anti-Infatry and Battlearmor duties, two flamers were
    mounted on the left arm, allowing the 'Mech to continue its mission within the minimum range
    of the Plasma Rifle or if the weapon were to run out of ammo.
    
    For its primary anti-Vehicle and BattleMech armament, four medium lasers, three in a battery
    going from the Head to the Center Torso and one mounted on the left arm to supplement its
    longer ranged firepower, were chosen to make the most of its heat sinks as well as allow the
    chasiss to continue on fighting for as long as the center torso would hold.
    
    The 'Mech itself is protected by nine tons of Light Ferro-Fibrous armor, chosen to allow for
    better saved weight when combined with its Endo-Steel internals. The chassis is further
    protected by an inclusion of a ballistic Anti-Missile System with a single ton of ammunition
    located in the left torso, which itself is protected by CASE.
    
    To keep the 'Mech cool running, a total of fourteen Double Heat Sinks were chosen to
    maximize heat compensation while taking into account how much of its weaponry would fire at
    most reasonable fighting ranges.
