================================================================================================
Overview:
    Immediately after Word of Blake conquered Terra, technicians began reopening and repairing
    mothballed factories. The Initiate, the first 'Mech to walk out of one of these refurbished
    factories, comes from the Martinson Armaments production center that once produced the
    Spartan. Though the Martinson factory was destroyed when Stefan Amaris took Terra some three
    centuries ago, it was repaired in a surprisingly short time, and now produces Initiates as
    well as Spartans.
    
    The Initiate design was based in part on the Albatross, sharing many of that assault
    'Mech's weapons systems and imitating its eclectic weapons mix.

Capabilities:
    Loaded with weapons and armor, the Initiate's only drawback is a decided lack of speed and
    maneuverability. At long range, the LRM provides quite a bit of punch for a 'Mech this size,
    and the Initiate's firepower is stronger as it closes in. The combined punch of the ER small
    lasers, the medium lasers and the SRM can disable smaller 'Mechs quickly and efficiently,
    and the antimissile system defends the 'Mech from incoming missile barrages.

Deployment:
    Production of the Initiate contiues at record speed, and each one quickly gets a pilot.
    Initiates are being spread equally among all Word of Blake divisions.
