MDG-1T Rakshasa

MDG-1T Rakshasa

Ninety years of corporate espionage and reverse engineering led to the manufacture of the MDG-1T Rakshasa. An obsolete variation of an already inferior facsimile in the eyes of the Inner Sphere; it is a welcome addition to the militaries of the Periphery. At one-third the procurement cost of an original MDG-1A, the “Taurian Rakshasa” leverages technologies common before the Helm Memory Core revolution. Therefore compatible replacement parts are readily available. Though the obvious replication of a Federated Suns BattleMech, Taurus Territorial Industries proved successful at avoiding Taurian prejudice of all things Davion, through aggressive propaganda emphasizing the MDG-1T as a Periphery duplication of the Timber Wolf. In addition, AFFS disappointment with the Rakshasa mitigated widespread deployment or promotion, thus TDF garrisons did not encounter them to develop a negative association.
