Description[edit]

The Ninja-To is intended to work with, and take advantage of, other units which carry a C3 Master Computer by carrying a C3 slave unit that allows it to share targeting data with other units in a C3 equipped unit. The Ninja-To is built on a lightweight Star League XT Light Endo Steel that cradles a powerful Magna 390 XL engine that gives the 'Mech a top speed of 97.2 km/h. While this combination of structure and engine saves weight, it also makes the Ninja-To susceptable to being a combat loss from side torso destruction. The Ninja-To carries twelve tons of Durallex Heavy with CASE to ensure that it will not be completely destroyed in the event of an ammunition explosion.[3]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Ninja-To has two Diverse Optics Sunbeam ER Large Lasers giving it respectable long range damage capabilities. For close combat, the 'Mech has two Diverse Optics Type ER Medium Lasers and a single Shigunga MRM-10. Because of the 'Mech's design it depends on a C3 network to allow the MechWarrior piloting the 'Mech make the most of the 'Mechs limited weaponry.[3]

Variants[edit]

  • NJT-3 
    A simple modification of the Ninja-To, the 3 variant replaces both of the ER Large Lasers and the MRM-10 launcher with a pair of comparatively low tech, yet more destructive, PPCs.[3] BV (1.0) = 1,279 (C3: 167)[2], BV (2.0) = 1,605[5]
