Overview[edit | edit source]

The AWS-PB is the Hero 'Mech model of the Awesome. With its flashy paint job and incredible speed, the Pretty Baby is the hot rod of the assault class. Even the -AWS-9M isn't as fast. It features relatively few hardpoints compared to other models though.


Stock Loadout[edit | edit source]

The AWS-PB is armed with a LRM 15 for Long Ranged combat, a PPC and Large Laser for Medium Range warfare, as well as a Medium Laser - SRM 4 Combo for short ranged engagements. Nineteen Double Heat Sinks dissipate 26.6 heat per second, keeping the design cool.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

The Pretty Baby can mount the largest Engine with a rating of 400 and features a top speed of 81kph, nearly 90 kph with the Speed Tweak Efficiency, giving it a top speed that rivals that of Medium 'Mechs like the Hunchback. Additionally, its turning rate is is 10% better than the other Awesome models. Like all Hero 'Mechs, the Pretty Baby has the 30% Cbill.png  bonus.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

In contrast to other Awesomes, the AWS-PB has the fewest number of weapon Hardpoints. Additionally, it decelerates slower than other Awesomes.

Pretty Baby Background[edit | edit source]

MechWarrior Danielle Peterson

A member of Delmar's assault lance, Tagaki's Battalion of House Davion's Chisholm's Raiders, Danielle does not look the part of a MechWarrior. Blond and beautiful, she has what many of her comrades call "the knack".

Though joking and friendly outside of her 'Mech, when Danielle buttons up in her Awesome, she seems to become one with the machine, able to react as if it were her own skin. This has saved her on more than one occasion when surrounded by enemy 'Mechs. In one instance, she literally skipped aside with her Awesome, the Pretty Baby, to avoid an incoming missile strike aimed at her. Danielle is famous throughout the Successor States for her skill in piloting the usually un-maneuverable Awesome.

TRO:3039:

Leftenant Danielle Peterson:

As a member of the Chisholm’s Raiders, Peterson has a petite build and physical beauty that is atypical of MechWarriors and seemingly at odds with her Awesome’s appearance. She is highly regarded for her exceptional piloting ability, and the extraordinary agility and performance she displays in her BattleMech have been well documented.

Seemingly uninhibited by the Awesome’s typical lack of maneuverability, Peterson’s incredible skills have made her and her Awesome (“Pretty Baby”) famous in all the Successor States. Several Solaris VII stables have offered her tremendous financial rewards were she to retire and join them, but so far she has publicly maintained that her allegiance to the Federated Suns, and she claims she does not intend to retire until they are done with her.[2]
