After the success of the Recon Walker that had previously been introduced, it was time that the technology was added to. It took a grueling 2 and a half years, but in the end, the result was the Raider; a platform suited to urban environments mostly. It was expensive, but well worth it.
The mech has an armament consisting of a gauss cannon on the left shoulder, two side mounted lasers, and a single heavy missle launcher on the right shoulder.
It has what would be expected on many vehicles, along with other tech that's brand new. Firstly, the good old radar, thermal imaging, and night vision. The Raider also comes jam-packed with heat sinks, electromagnetic shielding (for small arms fire ONLY), and auto seeking systems for the missiles.
Powered by a super compact, self regenerating generator, the mech has enough energy to last at least 3 hours before needing to shut down, as more power is used than is regenerated.
Unfortunately, a problem that is almost impossible to rectify is that the mech has a tendency to fall over, despite being packed with gyro-stabilisation systems derived from the 21st century Segways.
This here, is a happy pilot. Death at the pull of a trigger...
"Maybe I shouldn't have shot at it!!!"
I'm not overly keen on this one myself, so I won't be surprised if you aren't either. And it actually DOES have the tendency to fall over, the legs are pathetically weak...oh well, you win some, you lose some, as the saying goes...
