    (Originally posted in 2002:
    Designed as a high-speed harassment/interceptor, the BTF-1Y Butterfly proves that beauty can
    kill.  Designed with a svelte and agile form capable of covering all but the roughest
    terrain at high-speed, in an effort to harass enemy lines.

    Utilizing a 280 XL fusion engine, the Butterfly is capable of reaching speeds up to 118.8
    kph; furthermore, a penta of jump jets imparts jumps of up to 150 meters.
    Equipped with both offensive and defensive armaments of the latest design and technologies.
    The primary weapons of Butterfly are pair of left arm mounted medium pulse lasers that
    offering accuracy at the high-speeds that the unit maintains during combat; however, these
    pulse lasers force some pilots to close far closer to enemy units then they'd like.
    Supplemental to the lasers is the epitome of modern missile weaponry via a left torso
    mounted 6 tube Streak SRM rack. With the lock-on failsafe offered by Streak systems, the
    Butterfly ensures that every reload is utilized to its maximum effectiveness, and allows
    pilots to keep maneuvering at their highest capability while engaged in battle without
    concern of wasted munitions.
    Finally, the Butterfly mounts a pair of right arm mounted machine guns should it need to
    engage infantry assets or light armored vehicles.
    Reinforcing the offensive package, the Butterfly mounts nearly max armor for its chassis
    size; allowing the Butterfly to survive several hits from enemy units before the pilot is
    forced to retreats for repairs. Assisting this armor is a left-torso mounted Anti-Missile
    System supplied by 1 ton of ammunition.
    Overall, all these features in combination create an effective harasser, and it will be
    interesting indeed to see if the unit will perform or flop.
