the Assault spider was created shortly after Gideon Fucci witnessed the devastation caused by neos spider aa drones when three of the machines brought down a squadren of Da tigermoths. after that he requested a blue print of the machine and set the enginerse to make an anti vehicle model. soon the small agile modelwas created with duel anti plate Auto cannons. a smashing suces against lightly armored vehicles it was no good against tanks. two months later a heavier design with thicker armor and duel gauss cannons rolled out devastating tanks and apcs alike this design was approved by Gideon although it still needed work the first improvement to the new design was replaceing the iron tipped claws with solid titanium alloy claws and armor the second improvement was a spool of titanium razer cable with a grappling hook on the end to assist the machine when climbing verticel surfaces. the final improvement was to replace the tipical photorecepters with an advanced infered photorecepters and advanced targetting systems allowing it to accuratly perform night recon. as nimble as a true spider this elite model is often used in conjunction with tail reapers and squads of older light spiders.
