Hatamoto-Chi (80t)
Model by David Kerber
The HMT-27T Hatamoto-Chi is one of the first BattleMechs fielded by the DCMS using advanced construction materials, most notably an endo- steel chassis and ferro-fibrous armor. First deployed by the DCMS on An Ting in 3039, the Hatamoto-Chi is a significant conversion of the Wells Technologies CGR - 1A1. The modifications performed by the Kurita engineers were so extensive that the Mech was given a new designation.
