================================================================================================
Overview:
    This design was created in an attempt to improve upon the Zeus' capabilty as a longe range
    heavy support platform.

Capabilities:
    The gauss rifle/LRM 20 combo pack a powerful punch at long ranges as well as doing great at
    shorter ranges. Add to that the addition of an ERPPC and you have a triple weapon barrage
    that's good at most ranges and combines for a devastating attack. Ammo can be a problem for
    lengthy engagements but with a good supply line this unit is devastating. The close in
    weapons have been reduced to one medium pulse laser because of space concerns.

Deployment:
    So far there have been only two mechs of this configuration spotted, both within a local
    defense force. No combat details are available at this time. Though from techs who have
    performed routine maintenance on this mech comes the concerns of quick repairs in the field
    as the internals of this mech are very cramped.
