    Perhaps the most controversial use of a Hunchback since the 4P, the Thumpback is perhaps as
    small as mech-mounted tube artillery can be, and it retains a surprisingly high speed and
    laser armament despite this. Lances of Thumpbacks can provide artillery at weights and
    speeds unequaled by anything other than the Danai, and with significantly more endurance.

    Based off the chassis and gyro of the 5SG,  the Thumpback strips off the jump jets and
    exploits the remaining technology to cram a Thumper artillery piece, 4 tons of ammo, and
    three medium lasers onboard. This gives it strong speed and armor to evade and endure
    counterbattery fire, while the 4 tons of ammo provides excellent combat endurance to ensure
    that eventually, at least one shell will land on target.
