================================================================================================
Overview:
    Developed in 3055 The Caveman is the first heavy offering from Thayros Battletech Systems.
    The Caveman features advanced technology for its time. Endo steel wrapped in 12 tons of
    Ferro Fibrous. For armaments it features an advanced LB 10-X AC backed up by 6 medium lasers
    and has a top speed of 54 km/h. While marketed to mercenary units, it was not popular with
    them due to high maintenance costs of the LB-X and while it did see some service with
    planetary militias it sold only in low number and thus only had a short production run of 7
    years.

Variants:
    CVN - 101 - A retool to the Caveman only 2 years later in an attempt to increase its appeal
    to mercenaries the 101 replaces the LB-X for a standard AC/10 and drops 2 lasers. This was a
    moderate success as many merc units returned their 001 models to be downgraded to the 101,
    increasing the bottom line for the project.
    
    CVN - 202 - Going in the opposite direction to the 101 and introduced in the same year. The
    202 keeps the LB-X but exchanges the lasers for 3 ER medium and 1 ER small this version also
    uses a Arthro XL 325 engine. Targeted at the Successor States this was surprisingly popular
    with bigger and more well of merc units.
