================================================================================================
Overview:
    Referred to simply as a "new coat of paint", this variant of the venerable and trusted
    Marauder tries its best to stick true to the spirit of the original, albeit with updated
    technologies.

Capabilities:
    The hallmark twin PPCs were upgraded into Heavy variants increasing its main firepower by
    50%.
    
    The old whirlwind autocannon was replaced by the stronger and longer ranged Light Gauss
    Rifle for two reasons. First was to allow the design to snipe when out of range of its
    primary weapons and second, to cater to the League customers where this factory was located
    and to whom was catered too. With two tons of ammunition and 16 double strength freezers,
    the MAD-DM has plenty of endurance.
    
    Despite the fragility of the XL engine, the design isn't too vulnerable thanks to its 13.5
    tons of armor which is the max for most heavy mechs and a CASE II for added measure.
    
    The only true difference is the loss of one medium laser even though the last was upgraded
    to an ER model.

Deployment:
    Initial sales are low but occasional high spikes are seen after meetings between executives.
    The current theory behind these numbers is believed to be nostalgia based negotiations.

Variants:
    Due to its weight and location, the medium laser is sometimes replaced with a command
    console.
