================================================================================================
Overview:
    This design is not mine, to be honest.  I found a 2nd Edition Box Set last year at Half
    Price Books, & in the box someone still had a number of custom designs they had created.  My
    main contribution has been on the fluff side -- yes, I tend to favor the Taurians as a
    faction.  The primary reason for choosing this to be an enlarged Thunderbolt variant was
    twofold.  First, the Thunderbolt is one of the few designs that already has 3 medium lasers
    in the left torso.  Second, it was one of the designs available to the Taurian Concordat.

Variants:
    The Destroyer is a custom Thunderbolt variant developed as a potential assault-class 'Mech
    by the Taurian Concordat after the Reunification War.  The base Thunderbolt chassis was
    increased to 100 tons to allow it to go toe-to-toe with Star League & Davion assaults.  The
    engine was replaced by a Vlar 300, which reduced its top speed by 17%.  For the weapons
    package, all but the 3 medium lasers in the left torso were replaced by a Pontiac 100 Class
    20 Autocannon in the right torso with 3 tons of ammo & a Pontiac 50 Class 10 Autocannon in
    the left arm with 2 tons of ammo.  A 4th medium laser was mounted in the right arm, along
    with 6 additional heat sinks to offset the massive amount of heat.  The remaining tonnage
    allowed additional armor to be mounted, matching the vaunted Atlas for protection.
