    ARC-6W2 was put together by Marian techs. The mech doesn't look like it has real combat use,
    but legions recognize it's value as psychological weapon. Pirates who see mech armed with so
    many rockets often break and run for cover, because repairing mechs isn't easy in periphery
    and these mechs can make terrible wounds to entire lance in the matter of seconds. Marian
    Commanders who have this mech at their disposal usually use it to break enemy formation and
    then finish the enemy  by more conventional means.

    Armed with nothing less than four hundreds of unguided missiles ARC-6W2 can lay waste to
    large area with single salvo, but this immediately overloads the mech and puts the mech to
    risk of melting down reactor and exploding, so this tactic is usually saved for desperate
    situations. The mech was equipped with double heat sinks to allow moving and launching
    eighty missile salvos without overheating and thus maintaining maximal accuracy and
    mobility. Pilots usually charge in to the hearth of enemy formation with through clouds of
    smoke created by massive salvos. Original lasers are in their old places, with some minor
    changes to those arm mounted, to allow the pilot to cover his retreat, because there are
    missiles only for thirty seconds of fire on the mech. With Fourteen tons of armor it will
    probably reach safety and may be redeployed again. Thanks to removal of arm actuators and
    leg mounted Rocket launchers the mech doesn't resemble Archer anymore, but through study of
    internal structure it was identified as an offshoot of venerable ARC chassis.

    Marian is reported to field two lances worth of these mechs and surprisingly NAIS owns one
    of these mechs for study of extreme heat spikes from non-energy weapons.
