================================================================================================
Overview:
    Created by part necessity and insanity, this variant started as a battlefield modification
    of the AWS-8Q during the conflict in the Aurigan Coalition in 3025. It is a highly
    maneuverable variant of the Awesome that allows for much better battlefield positioning.

Capabilities:
    Using the AWS-8Q, the pilot and tech, simply took out the standard heat sinks replacing them
    with SLDF doubles. Then, after a night of drinking, the installation of 3 Heavy Jump Jets
    that had been salvaged were installed.
    
    This allows for the pilot to have much greater flexibility on the battlefield. Being able to
    jump 180m into a firing position, fire all three PPCs, then leap back to cool off. It also
    allows for the Awesome R to catch light mechs that think they've out maneuvered the 80 ton
    assault off guard.
    
    During the Aurigan conflict, many enemy forces thinking they were safe behind hills found
    themselves either face to face with the Awesome R as it was being kicked, or under it's
    shadow as the pilot at the time was very fond of the risky "Death from Above" technique.

Deployment:
    Since the Aurigan Conflict, it has been adopted as a standard design refit available to any
    Awesome that comes into service of House Arano. The mercenary company that designed it used
    it to great effect filling contracts within the Free Worlds League, the Capellan
    Confederation, and against incursions from the Taurians and Federated Suns.

Variants:
    Over time, this mech has had several refits and overhauls. Endosteel and Ferro-fibrous armor
    being added. A coolant pod was included for instances when the AwesomeR isn't able to jump
    away to cool off after firing all 3 ER PPCs. A half ton cargo space was also added as an
    expansion to the cockpit area, to allow for supplies to be carried to cut down on the pilot
    having to return for resupply.

Notable MechWarriors:
    The Awesome R is currently being piloted by Lt. Florenda "Florida Man" Vanberg. While known
    for being an excellent shot, she is best known for jumping into melee with targets. Lt.
    Vanberg can sometimes be heard yelling her battlecry "LEEEEROY JENKINS!!!", a reference to
    some long forgotten Terran warlord.
