    This seems to be latest Liao standard upgrade kit for venerable HBK-4G. Designed for simple
    installation during any mayor repair, this variant requires just a little strengthening of
    skeleton to withstand jumping. Jump jets can be installed in sturdy legs without any
    modifications and double heat-sinks were easily added in the spacious torso.

    Core of HBK-8G model's armament is the same LB 20-X AC that is designed for Yu Huang. Three
    tons of ammo, that are mounted with the AC, can keep main gun supplied for some time. Medium
    lasers were replaced with ER versions bought from FWL and head mounted small laser was
    removed in favor of CASE to increase survivability. Legs were fitted with jump jets for
    additional maneuverability, even if original chassis flies like a brick. This may be the
    reason, why most pilots try to stay on firm ground.

    New modification prototype is currently undergoing final trials. First upgrade kits will be
    shipped to units all around Liao space in six months.
