[edit] Description

The PEX-2B Gorilla is a Industrial Exoskeleton which was designed as a modest-cost civilian exoskeleton. The suit was created during the mid-31st Century when Star League technology became available again. With the introduction of the Battle Armor, Star Corp used newly regained Star League technology to produce the exoskeleton.[1]

Aimed at smaller companies which wouldn't normally to be able purchase high-end Exoskeletons, StarCorp's gambit paid off. Tens of thousands of the suit have been sold across the Inner Sphere and Periphery. It has been particularly popular with the construction trades.[1]

Between 3068 and 3069, sales of the Gorilla spiked in the Arc-Royal Theater. Later investigation found that the survivors of Wolf's Dragoons were buying large numbers of the Gorilla and using them on Outreach.[2]

[edit] Weapons and Equipment

The exoskeleton has been equipped with a Standard and Salvage Arm manipulators. The suit has been fitted out with a searchlight and cutting torch mounted on the body. It is protected with only 50 kilograms of standard armor. With its at minimum speed of 10 kph, the suit is unsuited for battlefield salvage jobs.[1]

The Gorilla has equipment rating of D/X-X-C/C.[1]

[edit] Variants

  • PEX-2F Salrilla - A off-shoot of the Gorilla, this model is specialized in salvage work.[1]
