Overview[edit | edit source]

The Heavy Metal model of the Highlander is the signature ride of Rhonda Snord of the Snord's Irregulars mercenary unit.[2] This customized Highlander features a number of recently reintroduced Lostech technologies. The most expensive example is the 275 XL Engine which saves weight for a heavy weapons payload, a Gauss Rifle in the right arm provides respectable punch at long range, while 13 Double Heat Sinks keep the design running cool. The most notable feature of this 'Mech, aside from the bright pink paint perhaps, is the signature speakers mounted around the head of the 'Mech. These speakers belt out rock music each time the pilot achieves a kill.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

The HGN-HM is quite maneuverable for an assault 'Mech thanks to its capability of mounting up to five Jump Jets. All direct fire weapons are mounted in the arms which provide for the greatest degree of accuracy. Two missile slots in the side torso make a it possible for missile systems to be either a primary or back up weapons payload. Like all Hero Mechs, the Heavy Metal provides a Cbill.png 30% bonus to all money earned. It is also unique in that it plays music when the pilot destroys another 'Mech.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

The -HM can mount a ballistic weapon in the right arm, but the sizes are limited by the inclusion of a lower arm actuator. An Autocannon 20 for example cannot be mounted there. Taking advantage of the two ballistic Hardpoints there will require a mix of lighter autocannons. The twisting range of the arms, a mere 20°, may limit the effectiveness of the Heavy Metal in close range fighting.
