================================================================================================
Overview:
    Developed to evaluate the feasibility of producing Clan specification reverse engineered
    equipment, the 9LX was one of the earliest mixed tech 'Mechs ever produced in the Lyran
    Alliance. After just the first prototype the project was abandoned due to the enormous costs
    of the high quality materials needed for the Clan grade equipment and mating the foreign and
    indigenous technologies. The 'Mech itself was almost scrapped as maintenance costs were very
    high but was thankfully (as it forms an important part of Lyran history) bought by a
    mercenary company and used heavily unti leing retired as a virtual wreck in 3119. Soon
    after, the historical significance of this 'Mech was soon realised and it was shipped to the
    Lyran capital, Tharkad where it was restored and now resides in the 'Museum of Lyran
    Military History'. On special occasions, the 'Mech shakes off the cobwebs and parades
    through the streets of the capital and has become a firm favorite of the public with its
    distinctive red and yellow prototype colourscheme.

Variants:
    There are no variants of this one off 'Mech.
