================================================================================================
Overview:
    Apparently based on the Timber Wolf (Mad Cat), the Sidewinder OmniMech was developed by Clan
    Cloud Cobra in preparation for the Clan Invasion of the Inner Sphere. When it turned out
    that the Cloud Cobras would likely not be among the invader clans they became increasingly
    desperate and eventually fielded a Sidewinder against Clan Jade Falcon in a trial on Babylon
    on 16 June 3048 that they lost. The Jade Falcons salvaged the heavily damaged 'Mech and all
    available information is based on their investigation of the design.

Capabilities:
    The use of a weaker engine and correspondingly slower speed compared to the Timber Wolf is
    offset by the inclusion of jump jets and a MASC system in the Sidewinder. Twelve tons of
    Ferro-Fibrous Armor provide ample protection, and 34.75 tons of pod space are available.

Variants:
    In its only known configuration, the Sidewinder mounts a Gauss Rifle, two LRM-10 with
    Artemis IV fire control, a Large Pulse Laser, two Medium Pulse Lasers and an AMS system,
    with twelve double heat sinks.
    No alternate configurations are known.
