Description

Description

The Hunchback 4G is a tried and tested juggernaut on the field. One of the lightest 'Mechs to mount such a massive Autocannon, it is capable of destroying some lighter units in a single volley. It tends to mount heavy armor to boot.

Description

A 'Swayback' variant, the 4H replaces the AC20 with the lighter AC10 and two Medium Lasers. While this reduces its overall raw firepower, it gives the Hunchback some much needed ranged capabilities.

Description

Modified to aid with indirect fire support as well as being able to act as a guardian for fire support lances, the HBK-4J succeeds at both roles. With its twin LRM-10s it can contribute to the barrage, whilest its five Medium Lasers allow it to fend off the Light 'Mechs that tend to harass fire support teams.

Description

The 4P version of the Hunchback trades the singular impact of a massive Autocannon for a frightening array of lighter Energy weaponry that is actually capable of dealing more damage overall. This all comes at the cost of greatly increased heat buildup, of course.

Description

The skunkworks of Periphery Armory, Inc, bring you this, the Hunchback-4PA. Unlike most Hunchbacks, this one is a critical damage machine, designed to chew up fragile enemy structure with its array of Heavy and standard Machine Guns in both array and non-array format. For ranged firepower, the HBK-4PA brings a pair of PAI Fury-brand Large Chemical Lasers to the party. Plenty of ammo for the MGs and lasers keeps the guns firing at all times. It's not the best choice, it's the Periphery Choice!

Description

The 4SP variant of the Hunchback replaces the Autocannon with two SRM6 launchers. This has the potential of doing more damage than the standard model, though the damage is more spread out. This firepower is supplemented by two Medium Lasers in each arm.

Description

The 5M Hunchback is a simple upgrade of the original 4G model. The most notable changes saw the heat sinks upgraded to double-strength models, while the small laser was upgraded to a Small Pulse Laser and CASE was added to protect against ammunition explosions. The extra weight required to add the newer systems forced the designers to reduce ammunition storage to a single ton of reloads, making it unpopular with MechWarriors.

Description

A very simple FWLM field upgrade of the lackluster 5M Hunchback introduced in 3057, the 5N model simply downgrades the pulse laser back to a small laser and removes the CASE to carry an extra ton of reloads, retaining the double heat sinks.

Description

The other Hunchback offering from the minds at Periphery Armory, Inc, the HBK-5PA is built around our patented Jury-Rigged XL engine for power. That power lets the -5PA carry a pair of Medium Cannons for maximum burst firepower. A trio of Machine Guns cover the close range and shred any exposed parts on enemy mechs while a pair of Large Chemical Lasers provide steady ranged firepower. It's not flashy, it's not sexy, but it brings home the bacon, just like a Hunchback should. Buy yours today!

Description

Originally a refit line converted to full production, the -5S is a complete overhaul of the Hunchback design developed by Norse-Storm BattleMechs in 3058. The structure has been modified to use Endo Steel construction techniques, the engine has been upgraded to a Light Fusion Engine, and four Jump Jets were added for increased mobility. The 'Mech carries, as its primary weapon, an LB-X Autocannon/20 with CASE-protected ammunition supported by two medium pulse lasers and a single small laser.

Description

This variant, produced in 3059, was Kali Yama's response to the complaints about the lack of AC/20 ammunition that spawned the ad hoc -5N field refit. The -6N removes three extra double heat sinks and replaces them with three more tons of reloads.
