================================================================================================
Overview:
    Hunchback IIC had been always feared for it's ability to turn the enemy to scrap if it get
    close enough. It's all or nothing nature made it quite popular for arena fighting, but
    maintaining clan equipment was quite costly and obtaining some reliable source of spare
    parts almost impossible. Recently some stables on Solaris pooled their resources and
    reproduced the IIC with IS technology.

Capabilities:
    Using recently developed light fusion engine and Endo Steel internal structure left just
    enough space to install two rotary AC/5s with some ammo and jump jets found on it's clan
    counterpart. The techs were able to use thicker armor, but the ammo is no longer protected
    by the CASE. HBK-2IS can fight longer thanks to variable firing rate of the RACs, but it can
    consume its ammo during 35 seconds on full firing rate. IS ER lasers and double heat sinks
    replaced clan versions during final stages of the construction, but there were no problems
    reported yet.

Deployment:
    Some wealthy stables on Solaris VII deploy the HBK-2IS model, but there are no reports about
    this mech outside the arena. Problems with smuggling the RACs from Davion space probably
    doesn't allow the mech to be produced in greater numbers.
