The Schwerer Gustav, named for an ancient artillery weapon from the World Wars on old Terra, is a one-of-a-kind FrankenMech made by the Tooth of Ymir mercenary company as part of a bar-room bet with the Kell Hounds. Constructed out of half a dozen mechs but mostly based off a scrapped Wolf's Dragoons Annihilator, the Gustav is a complex mix of technologies. Armed with a Thumper Artillery Cannon, a Binary Laser Cannon, and a Rotary AC/5, the Gustav can pound anything into scrap. However, a Command Console gives it command and control functionality. The Schwerer Gustav is as unique as a mech can be and is truly one of a kind.

In order to have a chance at spawning, this event requires the player be stationary at a planet (not traveling) as well as have a pilot with the Technician tag and without the Rebellious or Dishonest tags. The player also needs to have at least 10,000,000 c-bills in their account.
