Description

The Shootist first saw service in 2621 as a heavily armored, electronic warfare-capable command 'Mech for SLDF Regiments. However, the Shootist's upgraded electronic suites proved no match for the cutting edge of electronic warfare of its own time, so the SLDF changed the Shootist's mission parameters. The Shootist's balanced mix of weapons and speed along with its heavy armor allowed it a new role: juggernaut for close-combat heavy lances. Later it found further use as a bodyguard unit for command lances. Armed with an AC/20 and a mix of energy weapons, the Shootist proved effective in its new role.

The ST-8C is a 3060s upgrade of the venerable mech that exchanges the MPLs for ER Medium Lasers and adds an Improved C3 Computer to the mech for electronic support.

Description

Unlike most gladiatorial designs, there's actually two of these mechs. Named the Twins, these Shootists are the personal rides of a pair of twin brothers, formerly of the ComGuard, who took their mechs with them during the aftermath of Tukayyid. Armed and painted identically, the Twins mount two each LB-5X Autocannons, ER Large Lasers, and ER Medium Lasers. They even carry two tons of ammo, just to really drive it home.

Special Note: The Shootist ST-IIC is a custom Community Content 'Mech.

Description

Originally designed for the SLDF as a bodyguard for commanders in the field, the Shootist accompanied the SLDF on the Exodus and was eventually mothballed by the Clans. However, the pirates and bandits of Clanspace, the Dark Caste, remembered the Shootist and dug them out of abandoned Brian Caches. Retrofitting them with early Clan tech such as the Improved AC/20 and Improved Large Laser, the Dark Caste turned the Shootist into the so-called Shootist IIC. The most radical change though was the incoporation of the stealth systems of the Exterminator: the Chameleon Light Polarization Shield and Null Signature System.
