Overview[edit | edit source]

The AWS-9M is the latest model of the Awesome to be introduced. It takes advantage of a number of new technologies: an XL Engine cuts the weight of the Standard Engine in half, ER PPCs increase the range of the main weapons by 50% when compared to standard PPCs, Streak SRM 2s save on heat and ammunition, Pulse Lasers provide increased damage over standard Lasers, and Double Heat Sinks reduce waste heat almost one and a half times as fast as Standard Heat Sinks for the same overall weight. Additionally, the maximum speed is increased by 10 kph.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • able to have Good Long and Short range firepower
  • Fast for an Assault 'Mech
  • Can mount up to an XL 385 engine- The largest of any other Awesome save the Pretty Baby, which can have an XL400.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • It is Expensive to buy
  • not all CT Hardpoints can be used at once
