Have been selected as test pilot / lead designer / project manager for the testing of an experimental advanced weapon and equipment platform.
Designs are based on captured RVN-3 Raven battlemechs and are intended to aid in the development of advanced Federated Commonwealth weapon systems and defensive technologies.
Plans to reverse-engineer and reproduce RVN-3 Raven battlemechs have not yet been approved, however work has already begun at Strata Military Academy with this aim in mind.
Initial design work promising – RVN-3 platform is designed specifically to channel fusion plant energy to torso systems, and chassis layout supports numerous secondary torso mountings.
Lack of ‘arms’ allows for efficient layout and placement of weaponry and battle equipment to either side of main torso body.
ECM and communication systems are now being fitted to take advantage of these increased power levels, and weapon systems will be optimised to allow for long-range support.
