Description[edit]

The Sagittaire is built to fight in the confines of an urban battlefield. Weighing in at a massive ninety-five tons, the Sagittaire began production in mid 3063 and began to trickle out to units clamoring for close combat 'Mechs in the midst of the FedCom Civil War. The Sagittaire has a Pitban 285 XL engine as its power source. The XL engine saves weight at the cost of survivability and gives the 'Mech a top speed of 54.0 km/h. The Sagittaire's mobility is enhanced with three HildCo LFT 9-X jump jets which allow the 'Mech to jump up to ninety meters. The Sagittaire has seventeen double heat sinks to handle the its massive heat load, and is protected by eighteen tons of Starshield Special Heavy armor, allowing the 'Mech to stand up to a great deal of punishment in spite of its engine.

Production of the Sagittaire was halted due to the damage inflicted on Robinson Standard BattleWorks during the Jihad.[4]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Sagittaire has a large and varied arsenal built around energy weapons. For long-range combat, the Sagittaire has a single Defiance 1001 ER PPC. Once the Sagittaire gets its opponent in medium to close ranges it can bring its full fury to bear. Its primary weapons are a pair of Magna 900P Large Pulse Lasers backed up by five Magna 600P Medium Pulse Lasers, two of which are rear mounted, and finally a single Magna 200P Small Pulse Laser. All of these weapons are linked to an advanced Targeting Computer, allowing the Sagittaire to eviscerate its opponents in close combat.

Variants[edit]

  • SGT-9D 
    The Medium Pulse Lasers have been traded for Medium Lasers but the Small Pulse Laser and ER PPC remain in place. All the other weapons have been replaced by a pair of LB 10-X autocannons and a C3 Master Computer. The lighter heat load allowed engineers to remove four double heat sinks. BV (2.0) = 2,064[5]
