================================================================================================
Overview:
    Produced by Kerek Arms, the Yellow Jacket incorporates highly advanced technology into its
    design. The XL provides it with a high ground speed at a low cost in weight, and its
    endo-steel internal structure also saves weight. Tactical doctrine calls for Yellow Jackets
    to operate in groups of three (a "Tri-J"), and they are often supported by Mosquitos (which
    also operate in triads).

Capabilities:
    The Yellow Jacket's high speed and laser armament enable it to perform its role as a
    recon/deep raider 'Mech admirably. The high speed enables it to penetrate deeply into enemy
    territory, and its laser armament gives it the combat endurance raiders require.

Variants:
    This new 'Mech has no mass-produced variants. There were several prototype models with
    varying armaments' (one was armed with two medium pulse lasers and a large laser), and a
    prototype might turn up on the battlefield.
