================================================================================================
Overview:
    The need for a strong anti-infantry 'Mech with offensive capabilities was realized during
    the battles against Stefan the Usurper. In many conflicts, especially urban combat, infantry
    could render smaller 'Mechs inoperative. To solve this problem, MatherTechno Inc. introduced
    the VL 2-T Vulcan.
    
    This BattleMech reached the front line during General Kerensky's landings on Earth,
    where it earned a reputation as a tough urban fighting machine. Its flamer system, machine
    gun, and heavy armor performed effectively against infantry. The autocannon system was
    originally designed as an anti-'Mech system, but served well in city fighting.

Capabilities:
    As the Successor Houses lack the research facilities necessary to modify the armor and
    chassis of this complex 'Mech, MatherTechno built most of the variants several hundred years
    ago.
    
    The most common variant is the VL 5-T, which replaces the Armstrong autocannon with
    slightly more armor and several Maxum medium lasers. This 'Mech design is used mostly by the
    Federated Suns.
