    A Unit from Iron Harvest converted into BattleTech
    The SHM-69 "Serp" is a colossal, bipedal, heavily armored mech specializing in melee and
    infantry suppression, although it will generally crush anything it can get its blades into.

    Taller than most buildings, the Serp is an unconventional but nonetheless terrifying force
    on the battlefield. Bipedal, it is supported by two relatively small legs with a massive,
    heavily armored torso. It has two massive arms bearing large scythe-like blades almost as
    long as the mech itself is tall. Like other Rusviet heavy units, it bears resemblance to the
    front of a ship, but with something of a "head" in the form of a heavily-armored cockpit.
    The Serp can handle almost all units so long as it can get within melee range. Its
    relatively low durability still allows it to take a few hits without being slowed down, and
    once it gets close enough it deals very heavy damage to all types of armor while making
    short work of infantry. It also happens to be the second fastest of all current heavy mech
    units, including the other Rusviet heavy mechs the SHM-70 "Gulay-Gorod" and Lev Aleksey
    Zubov. All this lends the role of a line-breaker unit pretty well to the Serp, heading an
    attack formation to hack and slash through defenses.
    However, its still low speed and very short range make it fairly easy to kite or bring down
    with concentrated artillery, especially field cannons. It has the second-lowest HP of all
    heavy mech units as well, although it has a respectable 400 Health Points over the SKS 156
    "Wotan," but it will generally lose a fight to any other heavy mechs like the PZM-24 "Tur"
    and the SKS-300 "Kaiser." Properly supported, however, the Serp makes a powerful tip of the
    spear, crushing all of its foes for the good of Rusviet.
