================================================================================================
Overview:
    In mid-3060, Goodfellow Defence Industries began experimenting with the idea of a forward
    artillery support 'Mech design. The intent was to provide a mobile, close support vehicle
    that could easily keep up with a moving battle and "go where the 'Mechs go". The result of
    this experimentation is the BAR-1C Saint Barbara Fire Support BattleMech.

Capabilities:
    The Saint Barbara carries fifteen reloads for it's Arrow IV system, allowing it to provide
    some substantial fire support before needing to be replenished.
    
    
    
    A Target Aquisition System allows the BAR-1C to paint its own targets (although, as a test
    pilot was reported as saying, "if it ever had to, everything's already gone to hell.") and a
    Guardian ECM package gives it some protection against hunter/killers and scouts seeking to
    silence the Arrow IV's. A single Small Pulse Laser allows the Saint Barbara to protect
    itself against infantry.

Deployment:
    BAR-1Cs should be deployed in groups of one or two lances, far enough behind friendly lines
    that they can quickly fire on targets, yet remain protected if the enemy breaks through on
    the front. The Saint Barbara has no protection against enemy 'Mechs except to run away...
    unless it uses it's Arrow IV missiles, of course...
