    A vision of the future for the Battle Jackdaw scout 'Mech as envisioned by it's pilot Uwe
    Frachtmeister, and approved by the rest of the extensive Frachtmeister-Junkers family.
    Whether the chassis will ever be in state permitting such modification is debatable, but one
    can always hope for the best while adding another layer of duct tape around the wiring. The
    history of abuse by 2nd Alphecca Guard has left some deep marks as have the lean months
    following the operation Contangion (which the 'Mech has fortunately avoided due to it's
    already bad shape).

    The overall heat management of the basic FS9-K is slightly improved by the addition of
    another heat sink in place of the rear flamer, but the armour is still barely acceptable and
    Uwe's gunnery skills are barely sufficient to hit practice targets while doing anything else
    than standing still, so the best hope for "Zippík" is currently to keep moving and spot
    targets for the rest of his group. If everything goes well the small lasers could get
    replaced with a much more useful medium laser that could provide the sorely needed reach and
    add some additional wrikles to grandma Junker brow. Uwe doesn't look forward to the extra
    hours of reactor maintenance under her stern gaze now that she finally got an aide who can
    catch him even if he tries to run. Fortunately Uwe's sister Heike didn't learn all of
    grandma's manners yet.

    Wherever Battle Jackdaws will find themselves, if the modifications will ever be executed.

Notable MechWarriors:
    Uwe Frachtmeister is far from notable, but grandma will disassemble your Atlas bit by bit
    and shove it up your... aehm... if you will scratch the reactor. Do you feel lucky, punk?
