Description

In addition to its electronic warfare suite, the RVN-3X has been outfitted with experimental Triple Strength Myomer. While it doesn't increase movement speed, the Prototype TSM does boost melee damage, letting the RVN-3X defend itself well in close combat. Otherwise it carries the standard Raven electronic warfare suite and the light weapons characteristic of the Raven.

Description

Developed as an experimental fork of the production variant Raven-4L, the Raven-4LX was an attept by Hellespont to develop a portable missile shield. While the Anti-Missile ECM had excellent battlefield performance it also proved prone to maintenance problems and remained experimental. The rest of the Raven-4LX's kit includes twin MML-5s for flexibility and a pair of equally experimental Rotary ER Medium Lasers. Endo-Steel construction and an XL Engine provide the weight while Stealth Armor keeps the mech evasive.

Description

Built to provide inexpensive battlefield support, the Raven-5X never found wide acceptance among buyers due to making use of clumsy and hard to supply Mech Mortars. Armed with a trio of Mech Mortar/2s, the Raven-5X is capable of deploying a wide variety of munitions anywhere on the battlefield without line of sight. Armored with 7 tons of armor, the -5X has only a pair of Medium Lasers and a Small Laser as direct-fire weapons, making it extremely weak to being attacked directly as it can't defend itself well. Ultimately, the Raven-5X failed financially and was sold off cheap to garrison forces.
