Weta WTA-IIB

Lct 5 w2 locust

Based upon the original Weta, the Super Locust LCT-S1E, the more refined Weta WTA-IIB utilises Hardened Armour for much greater protection, and a slight decrease in speed. This is based heavily on Hauptmann Samara Hellstrom‘s observation and design advice from her use of a Weta in the field. Removing two of the medium lasers and the three Double Heat Sinks facilitates the added armour weight and addition of a Flamer. Added protection, and a Flamer to counter infantry, compensates for two of the Weta’s three weaknesses, the other been lacking long range weaponry. This has maintained the unit as a fast, hard hitting and cool-running unit but with higher endurance and the added tactical flexibility of the Flamer.
