Assassin (40t)
Model by Peer Risch
Edited by Primus BuS
This 'Mech was originally marketed to compete against the Wasp and Stinger 'Mechs. Its ample firepower, good armor protection, and speed have made it a popular model. Though heavier than the light 'Mechs, it is still a fast vehicle with full jump capabilities. A rousing success, the Assassin nonetheless failed to replace the Stingers and Wasps, which were less expensive and to which the military felt loyal. Only several hundred Assassins were created. Its mobility especially seems to be the key to its success in battle. Due to their modular design and access systems, most of these are still functional.
