RVG-5L Ravager

RVG-5L Ravager

The RVG-5L Ravager was a military thought experiment between House Liao and House Kurita defense contractors to develop a BattleMech outside the paradigm of both Successor States’ battlefield traditions. The project failed to achieve that objective. It did however, result in something best described as a miniature Marauder. Expressing disappointment, the Draconis Combine turned away from the design. Open to trial and error, the Capellan Confederation constructed prototypes for field tests. Less than half the tonnage and double the ground speed of a Marauder, the Ravager leverages the forefront of military technologies: an endo composite inner structure, five point five tons of heavy ferro-fibrous armor, and an extralight gyro. Triple light particle projector cannons, two with capacitors, give the RVG-5L an effective offense. A pair of small lasers deal with common infantry and pointblank opposition. As the verdict stands, for its weight class the Ravager hits hard and can take a beating, but suffers extralight engine fragility.
