Samuel 'Shorty' Sneede was famous for being unusual even among Snord's Irregulars, the mercenary company he worked for. A master technician, Shorty managed to keep Snord's mechs in perfect shape even during the Succession Wars. However, his crowning achievement was this, his 'Rifleman'. Constructed out of a Rifleman, an Archer, a Warhammer, and a Phoenix Hawk, Shorty's mech looked like a mess but worked flawlessly despite that. The 'Rifleman' was armed with a grab-bag of weapons: a PPC, a LRM-20, and 4 Medium Lasers. Shorty eventually parted with his mech under unclear circumstances and now it's come to you. Use it wisely, Commander.
