Spider (30t)
Model by Primus BuS
In 2650, the Star League requisitioned a special 'Mech for its elite commando forces. Newhart Interstellar Industries, a firm which produced mostly aero-space fighters, responded so quickly that most of the other 'Mech manufacturing firms were left sitting in the dust. Newhart had, in fact, already designed the Spider series, which easily exceeded the minimum standards for a lightweight recon/attack 'Mech. They were already geared up for immediate production, and so the Star League awarded Newhart the contract. The Spider got its name from its front armor alignment, which resembles a spiderweb.
