HCT-3G Hatchetman

HCT-3G Hatchetman

An uncommon Hatchetman modernization of the HCT-3F, in that it avoids extralight fusion engine replacement, the HCT-3G would serve multiple theaters in garrisons throughout the Lyran Commonwealth. Consolidating ranged firepower between an enormous Binary Laser Cannon and a Defiance Industries proven B3L Large Laser, the variant could deploy without resupply for significant durations. Inexplicably, the HCT-3G suffered ferro-fibrous shortages from corrupt political intrigue. Though it could adapt standard armor instead, such practice endangered MechWarrior protection and increased jump jet operation catastrophes. When the issue was exacerbated due to the Military Materiel Redemption Program, many HCT-3G were retired to museum exhibits on gracious worlds they valiantly guarded.
