[DGMC] Custom 'Mech - RFL-3AS Rifleman

Postby Euphonium » Wed Jul 09, 2008 1:17 am

MechWarrior Alison Stockley created her personal refit of the RFL-3N Rifleman after being severly wounded fighting a rear-guard action when the mercenary unit she served with was overrun by Kuritan forces towards the end of the War of '39. Out of ammunition for her autocannons, and unable to use her lasers effectively due to overheating, only the lucky arrival of reinforcements from the Devil's Guard Mercenary Company saved her.
After the war, she signed on with the Devil's Guard, piloting a captured Dragon until she could rebuild her beloved Rifleman.

Alison's primary goal with refitting her Rifleman was to make sure she could actually use the two large laser effectively. To this end, she started by replacing the torso-mounted medium lasers with heatsinks. Finding that this was not enough, she then replaced the Imperator-A autocannons with lighter Mydron-D models salvaged from a JagerMech, adding three more heatsinks and a ton or armour in the process.
Although the total firepower of the 'mech is reduced, Alison feels that the combination of greater range and ammunition for the autocannons and the ability to use the large lasers with only minimal heat issues more than makes up for this.

Now a lance commander with the Devil's Guard, Alison and her Rifleman have performed sufficiently well that Damien O'Kane, pilot of the other Rifleman in her lance, is having his 'mech refited to the same configuration.
