Overview:
    After having designed and manufactured the original AN-1 Annoyance, the designers saw that
    the reduced armor was making the 'Mech a slow seller, and orders weren't coming in quick
    enough to offset the cost of production.  To help with this they soon set to work a plan
    that would add more armor to the existing design, but yet maintain the same characteristic
    that made it a viable design, speed.
    
    In order to add the extra armor, the engine size was reduced.  because of the smaller
    engine, the 'mech lost some of its vital speed needed for its survival.  to offset that
    small drawback the addition of MASC more than made up for it.  MASC allowed the new design
    to even surpass the older AN-1 in overall speed.  because of the newer additions, this
    design has become a popular one for Recon missions.

Capabilities:
    Simply put, this design has few capabilities.  Like its predecessor, it was build for speed
    with little firepower.  The addition of the Myomer Accelerator Signal Circuitry allows this
    design to raid and pull recon missions with a greater success rate than the older version.
    
    The Small Pulse Laser was kept for security reasons.  The Targeting Computer in conjunction
    with the Small pulse Laser helps the pilot of this 'Mech escape hairy situations when the
    need arises.  Hopefully, however, the pilot will never have to use the laser.

Deployment:
    Very few of these designs have gone out since it is a fairly new design.  However, there is
    a large quantity on order from top rated Mercenary units such as the Gray Death Legion and
    Wolf's Dragoons.  Small quantities have also been shipped to Clan bordering House units.

Variants:
    As stated earlier, the earlier variant of this design is the AN-1 which is slightly slower
    and possesses less armor.  this variant is more popular than the older and the older variant
    is no longer in production.
