The Hastings was a commonly fielded bombardment vehicle, used not as a front-line battle unit, but as fire support. Platypus 'Mech Works was the originator of this design, but several other manufacturing companies have since produced knockoffs by other names.
The most commonly found, and original, variant of the Hastings mounts five tons of armor, a DAV 85 internal combustion engine, has a 35-ton chassis, and carries twin front-mounted AC/5's with two tons of ammo, plus a rear-mounted Vehicle Flamer with one ton of ammo for defense against infantry. The Hastings was slow, and its minimum range and lack of secondary weapons meant it had to rely on other units for support--something that made it unpopular with some crews.
The Hastings Type II mounted lighter AC/2's in place of the AC/5's, with the same amount of ammunition in a two-ton bay; it was also armed with two Machine Guns on the left and another pair on the right side, with half a ton of ammo, plus a front-mounted SRM-4 with one ton of ammo.
Hastings Mobile Field Gun, Type III, Siege Configuration: Replaces the autocannon with a single AC/10 with two tons of ammo, two LRM-5's with one ton of ammo, and an additional half-ton of armor in the front.
Hastings Mobile Field Gun, Type IV: Replaces all weaponry with a front-mounted PPC, and a machine gun with half a ton of ammo total on the left and right facings.
Hastings Mobile Field Gun, Type V: SLDF refit. Replaces the autocannon with an LB10-XAC with two tons of ammo, and adds a Medium Pulse Laser in the front in place of the rear-mounted Vehicle Flamer of the Type I.
Hastings Mobile Field Gun, Type VI, Artillery Carrier: Mounts a Thumper with two tons of ammo and a Streak SRM-2 with one ton of ammo.
