================================================================================================
Overview:
    Known as an incomplete half measure, this incremental upgrade of the tried and true TBT-5J
    makes use of the brand new Corean-II Deluxe endo steel chassis.  The weight saving allow the
    TBT-5Jx to mount a heavier Doombud LRM 20 launcher and upgrade one medium laser into a
    Diverse Optics Sunbeam ER Large Laser at only the cost of 30 meters in jumping distance.
    Sacrificing an additional Medium Laser allows it to carry a C3 Slave unit.  The unit is even
    slightly up armored by mounting Kallon's new FW Special ferro-fibrous armor instead of its
    prototypical Starshield.

Capabilities:
    Trying to fill the roll of highly mobile fire support, the 5Jx worked more or less as
    intended, but was not deemed an success.  While the NARC backed munitions and heavier
    initial volley were favorable, they were also less sustainable.  The new Doombud launcher
    could only sustain fire for approximately 2 minutes before it's primary weapon had run dry,
    all while firing much more expensive ammunition.

Deployment:
    The TBT-5Jx saw only sporadic action outside of testing.  One full lance of units were
    purchased by the famed Eridani Light Horse, but there are no confirmed battlefield reports
    of the models performance, and indeed, one unit was confirmed to be designated solely as
    training unit.

Variants:
    Some units had the C3 unit removed in favor or remounting one medium laser, but this was
    uncommon.
    
    During the early stages of the FedCom Civil War, some Lyran Alliance units switched out the
    C3 for an Artemis IV Fire Control System.
