    The Sledgehammer was designed by Kali Yama Weapons Industries Incorporated as a "delivery
    system" for the new Heavy Gauss Rifles sold to them by Blackwell. Kali-Yama hoped it had
    finally created a design to supplant the old Hunchback, but this was not to be.
    The SHM-05 is a near-complete rebuild of Kali-Yama's ambusher design, taking its weaponry in
    the opposite direction.

    The SHM-05 replaces the Heavy Gauss Rifle with an array of Magshot Rifles, and trades the
    Small Lasers for Medium Pulse Lasers. with the saved weight it adds more heat sinks, Jump
    Jets, and 12 tons of cheap, Reliable Standard Armor. It also upgrades to a 330XL Fusion
    Engine, increasing its top speed even further.
    These models were received favorably by the FWLM, due to its increased effectiveness against
    infantry targets and less complicated manufacturing. It was discovered, however, that the
    over-engineered gyro system was still susceptible to failure when affected by outside
    forces. like weapons fire.
    All models of the Sledgehammer have the following quirks: Variable-Range Targeting,
    Unbalanced, and Poor Reputation.
