Description[edit]

These mechanized Clan infantry are designed around the ability to defend support units, artillery and supply dumps from air attack. Clan Hell's Horses' 67th BattleMech Cluser, Iota Galaxy, maintains Points of Mechanized AA Infantry for air defense. Their usefulness in battle has been mixed, in part because of their infrequent exposure to combat. In battle with Clan Ice Hellion, these units took heavy losses due to their inability to respond quickly, though in a sense they succeeded when the units they were protecting remained unharmed.[1]

Armament[edit]

These units carry Auto-Rifles for personal protection, while their Man-Portable AA Weapons are mounted on special light tanks.[1]
