Overview[edit | edit source]

The Cataphract CTF-3D makes use of an advanced light weight XL Engine to free up tonnage for weapons. This tonnage is put to use by including a new LB 10-X Autocannon which can fire both solid rounds for punching holes in armor, and cluster rounds for seeking out and damaging exposed internals. An Ultra AC/5 also provides medium to long range reach at twice the rate of fire of its standard counterpart. Finally, four Medium Lasers provide reliable up-close defense. The low speed is offset by the inclusion of Jump Jets to allow the Cataphract to conduct hit-and-run operations.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Jump Jets
  • Long and Short Ranged weapons
  • good Armor load

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Slightly easier to hit head
  • XL Engine
  • Large profile
