Overview:
    The VTR 9B Victor was originally built under a defense contract with the Star League in
    2510. Defined as a heavy BattleMech, it was used as a strong support 'Mech with jump
    capabilities. Earlier models carried a sophisticated array of anti-infantry weaponry
    systems, later discarded due to the overheating problems common for a heavily armed 'Mech.
    Also technicians felt that this heavy-support 'Mech would not engage infantry, and so the
    flamer and machine gun systems were removed. The Victor was originally outfitted with a
    Standus 20 tracking system, but it was removed from all but the first-run prototypes due to
    its tendency to project targets that did not exist.
    
    HildCo Interplanetary produced the 'Mech out of three plants whose facilities were destroyed
    during the First Succession War. Most of the firm's records fell into the hands of House
    Kurita, however. Thus, the total number of Victors produced has been determined to be nearly
    1000. Many were lost during Kerensky's exodus from the Star League, and still more were lost
    during the First Succession War.

Capabilities:
    Unlike heavy 'Mechs, the Victor has a jump capability. It is equipped with the HildCo Model
    12 jump jets, providing it with the ability of full jump as well as all related forms of
    attack. As most MechWarriors do not expect a heavy 'Mech to be able to jump when they
    encounter a Victor, that can spell their doom.
    <br>     The Pontiac 100 autocannon provides the Victor with medium-range capability
    as well as the power to inflict a great deal of damage. Although some models have reported
    some ammunition feed problems, this does not appear to be a common problem.
    <br>     The Victor's left arm sports the mainstay of its close-range weapons, the
    twin Sorenstein V medium lasers. These lasers are supplemented by the Holly short-range
    missile rack, intended for close-range fire support.
