Description

The 5D Spider is geared towards anti-infantry work, removing one of the medium lasers and replacing it with a Flamer in the right arm. However, the combination of its speed with the Flamer can deliver an unpleasant surprise.

Description

An anti-infantry variant, the 5K mounts Machine Guns in each arm along with a single Medium Laser in its center torso. In order to make room for the added weapons, a pair of JumpJets are removed, hampering some of the Spider's vaunted mobility.

Description

The Spider 5V is hands down the most maneuverable 'Mech you can field... but it's made of paper. It's an excellent scout, though, and can even jump into the rear arc of most enemies for surprise back shots.

Description

The Capellan Confederation has long had to be more resourceful than its neighbors due to a weaker industrial base. To that end, when the CCAF captured a depot of Spider-7Ms from the Free Worlds League, Chancellor Sun-Tzu Liao ordered their refitting for the CCAF. Arming the Spiders with a SRM-6 and a pair of Medium Pulse Lasers brought up the firepower considerably, though to carry the weapons, a XL engine had to be mounted. Additionally, the design lost its Ferro-Fibrous armor in favor of heavier standard plate. Still, the -7C kept the speed and maneuverability and the firepower is considered a worthy trade for the armor.

Description

The 7M was an upgrade of the venerable Spider with Star League technology. It uses an Endo Steel chassis and three tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor, freeing up weight to replace the two medium lasers with two Medium Pulse Lasers while remaining just as fast and maneuverable as the base model.

Description

New from your friends at Periphery Armory, Inc comes this, the Spider-7PA. With design schematics helpfully acquired thanks to an engineer, formerlly of the Capellan military, this take on the SDR-7M has the latest in cutting edge technology with double heat sinks and endo-steel bones.

Armed with a pair each of Medium Chemical Lasers and Heavy Machine Guns, the SDR-7PA rounds out its payload with a Reloading Rocket Launcher-20 for maximum firepower. Get behind them and give them both barrels!

Description

The -8M was another upgrade of the venerable Spider by the FWLM, but this time upgrading the prior model, the -7M. The biggest complaint about the -7M was that it kept to single heat sinks. The -8M rectifies that with a switch to double heat sinks. Otherwise, the mechs are the same.

Description

This minor modification of the SDR-7M swaps one of the pulse lasers for a standard medium laser, freeing up enough space for a C3 slave unit, allowing the mech to better interface with the Combine's military doctrine. In all other respects, the -C is a standard SDR-7M.
