The Cicada is an extremely fast 'Mech that is ideal for scouting and harassing. Most models carry a light load of weapons, but go very fast.

CDA-X5[edit source]

The CDA-X5 makes use of a number of missile and energy Hardpoints. These hardpoints allow the X5 to take advantage of the lightest and most efficient weapons available. It also spreads the hardpoints evenly among all locations to minimize the disabling the damage potential of this 'Mech with one lucky shot.

Like all Hero 'Mechs, the -X5 can only be purchased with MC.png . It does save you from having to make big Cbill.png  purchases by including some of the best equipment available. An XL 330 allows you almost reach the maximum speed possible. All three advanced, and expensive, upgrades are already installed on the 'Mech as well. The -X5 also provides the same 30% Cbill.png  bonus that all Hero 'Mechs do.
