Overview[edit | edit source]

The HBK-4H can be directly compared the to Hunchback HBK-4G. Both are able to mount large ballistic weapons, but the -4H trades the ability to carry a number of ballistic weapons for the ability to carry even more energy weapons.

Stock Loadout[edit | edit source]

The -4H trades the AC/20 of the -4G model for a longer ranged and lighter AC/10. The weight saved allows the 'Mech to mount two additional Medium Lasers which makes up for the lost damage potential of the original design.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • The HBK-4H exchanged two ballistic Hardpoints in the right torso for two energy hardpoints. This is arguably a favorably hardpoint set up since the limited tonnage of the Hunchback means it can more easily carry a large number of lasers than it could autocannons.
  • Like all Hunchbacks, it possesses an impressive torso twist range which allows it to more easily keep its torso mounted weapons on target.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Like most Hunchbacks, once the right torso of the HBK-4H is destroyed, so is most of its firepower.
  • Large jutting cockpit means its relatively easy to hit, even from its left side.
