    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.
    Despite a chassis and Gyro custom-made to house the HGR, the Sledgehammer had chronic
    stability issues that Kali-Yama was never able to cure. The HGM-03 was thus designed,
    equipped with a Standard Gauss Rifle, and ER-PPC, CASE, an extra Double Heat Sink, and five
    Jump Jets for added mobility. SHM-03b is a Dark Age upgrade utilizing Clan Technology.
    All models of the Sledgehammer have the following quirks: Variable-Range Targeting,
    Unbalanced, and Poor Reputation.

    Utilizing a Clan-spec ER-PPC and Clan Medium Laser paired with a classic Gauss Rifle, the
    SHM-03b excels as a Skirmishing platform, though it still sufferers the cost of its flawed

    This Mech is a variant of SHM-01, equipped with a Heavy Gauss Rifle and 10 small lasers. Its
    ambitious design concealed a flawed Gyro system that left the Mech fundamentally unbalanced.
    The recoil from the HGR only exacerbated this flaw, leading to the development of the SHM-03
