Description[edit]

Named after a MechWarrior it defeated in its test run, the Savannah Master is notable for using a fusion engine, unlike most conventional vehicles of its era. With its high speed and meager armor, the Savannah Master hovercraft stays alive by staying mobile and wearing down heavier units with its lone weapon. The vehicle is manufactured on Carlisle.[3][5][6]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

As the Savannah Master primarily engages light recon 'Mechs (which tend to be lightly armed and armored), the single Defiance B3M Medium Laser is more than sufficient for its needs.[3][5][6]

Variants[edit]

  • SL 
    Introduced in 3033[7], two Small Lasers replace the medium laser. Production of this model was not pursued due to the lack of acceptable range.[8] BV (2.0)= 131[9]
