    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.
    All models of the Sledgehammer have the following quirks: Variable-Range Targeting,
    Unbalanced, and Poor Reputation.

    Carrying a Heavy Gauss Rifle with 8 rounds of fire at speeds up to 85km/h, The Sledgehammer
    is ideal for short-range ambushes. Its battery of 10 small lasers allows it to deal even
    greater damage and crit-seek at point-blank range.

    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 exaccerbated this flaw, leading to the development of the
