HBK-4R Hunchback

HBK-4R Hunchback

Compared to the gauss rifle by ardent supporters, the extraordinary destructive output and immense range of the Republic Institute Strategic Combat Hyper Laser compels counter argument these advantages outweigh the fragile and volatile shortcomings. Such experimentation lead to the development of a Hunchback replacing its iconic autocannon with a RISC Hyper Laser. To optimize precision accuracy, the pilot receives assistance from an advance targeting computer. To mitigate damage received from opposition, the delicate hyper laser hides deep in protective armored components. To maximize battlefield positioning, the BattleMech is equipped with Rawling 50 jump jets to maneuver 120 meters, horizontal or vertical, without hinderance. It seemed the HBK-4R could address all criticism towards practical application for the RISC Hyper Laser. Alas, then came the tragic fall of the Republic of the Sphere.
