================================================================================================
Overview:
    The brain child of the same Irian design team behind the MAD-4X, the STK-5MB was proposed as
    an alternate direct fire support assault mech for adoption by the FWLM instead of the
    AWS-9M. Stripping out all the missile weaponry and adapting designs of old Rifleman II arms
    to be compatible with the Stalker chassis, the idea was to provide a well rounded, heavily
    armored, well supplied assault mech that could also perform anti-air duties if needed. An LB
    10-X autocannon is mounted in each arm along with a heat sink and medium laser, while CASE
    protects the ammunition in the side torsos. A medium laser is in each arm, while the missile
    ports for the standard SRM6 launchers is replaced instead with a single medium laser.
    Fifteen and a half tons of armor gives it even more protection than the Awesome.
    
    While the design showed promise in testing, the AWS-9M proposal was adopted instead, despite
    the higher per unit cost as all components in the machine were already being manufactured at
    Irian. Shiro III did not have the capacity to start manufacturing the required autocannons,
    and the long term costs of shipping the weapons to be equipped onto the mech was deemed too
    high.
    
    With only 12 ever manufactured, almost all surviving examples of the design are later
    conversions by mechtechs or mercenaries using a slightly different arm design from the
    original 5MB models.
    
    A fully intact model, STK-5MB-SIII-XA000007 is on display at the Irian Design Museum, having
    survived the Blakist nuclear strikes, the Military Materiel Redemption Program, RAF
    emergency requisition during the blackout, and chaotic fighting on Irian during the collapse
    of the Republic of the Sphere. Negotiations are underway between the Battlemech Museum on
    Solaris VII and the local planetary government over adding the machine to their collection.
