================================================================================================
Overview:
    Among only a handful of new BattleMech designs to enter production in the Inner Sphere
    during the Third Succession War, Baal Defense Solutions' CA1-N Cain and AB3-L
    Abel were also the first new products to be designed by the company under the
    leadership of CEO and Chairman Franklin Holloman. The Cain and the Abels'
    development programs paved the way for the new direction Holloman envisioned for the
    company, focusing heavily on the production of brand new 'Mech designs over the creation of
    variants of preexisting BattleMechs.
    
    Complementing the Abel's focus on long-range, indirect fire support, the CA1-N
    Cain was optimized for medium to close-range brawling. Weighing in at 50 tons just
    like its counterpart, its primary mode of offense was four Baal Defense Quad-Aught 6000
    SRM-6 launchers, with two mounted on each lower arm. When fired all in one single salvo, the
    devastating swarm of missiles could easily cripple heavier mechs and all but pound lighter
    ones to scrap. For intermediate range engagements, the Cain sported a respectable
    armament of four Baal Defense Diamondback 44 medium lasers, with two mounted in either side
    torso.
    
    The CA1-N's primary shortcoming was its lackluster heat dissipation. Equipped with just 11
    standard heat sinks, the CA1-N could not fully sink the heat generated by firing all four of
    its SRM-6s or lasers at once, and the 'Mech was unable to alpha strike without shutting down
    and risking a catastrophic ammo explosion.
