    In spite of the general assumption that the Rakshasa performs best when its not trying to
    emulate the Mad Cat, the MDG-1ST was designed to mimic the appearance of the Clan
    battlemech, using Chameleon LPS and Null Sig systems to fool enemy electronics and hide the
    Mech's allegiance and configuration from its enemies. In that way, this model follows in the
    footsteps of the Exterminator or Scarecrow.
    It is unknown who is manufacturing this variant, or who might be operating it. That alone is
    a testament to this machine's effectiveness at its stated goals.

    With two Snub-nose PPCs and four SRM-6 launchers as the Mech's only armament, this model is
    maent for exclusively short-range combat. Due to its insufficient heat-sinking capability,
    the stealth systems must be de-activated before an attack is made.
    The main tactic used by MechWarriors is thus to sprint up to a target, switch off the
    Null-Sig, and Alpha Strike before re-engaging Null Sig and retreating to prepare another
