Battlemech - Bushwacker

Description

The Bushwacker was originally a failed BattleMech designed to have a smaller forward profile to make the 'Mech a harder target to hit. The Bushwacker's unique design caused problems with the engine shielding, the side-effects of which manifested themselves as various gremlins in the 'Mech's on board electronics on the prototypes fielded during the Clan Invasion. The 'Mech was redesigned after schematics for an OmniMech known as the Vulture were captured during a raid into Clan territory. Information gleaned from the schematics were used to overcome the aforementioned engine shielding problems. Finding the schematics had given the Bushwacker a second lease on life. Full production of the corrected Bushwacker began just after the Truce of Tukayyid, and the 'Mech has since become a favorite of MechWarriors in the Draconis and Capellan Marches of the Federated Suns.

MW:PR 3051

In MW:PR 3051 the Bushwacker is suited best for long/medium range support tasks. The Bushwacker's narrow porfile makes it a hard to hit target, and while not strongest medium, the Bushwacker is a scary adversary. Keep the Bushwacker operating behind your assault mechs for maximum effectiveness.
