The BJ-4G is the result of a win that came at a loss. The -4G was once part
of a lance on lance team in the Solaris IV games in the early 3030s. As the
team was whittled down, the last two contenders was the Blackjack BJ-1 vs a
Hunchback HBK-4G. In a mish mash of spare parts, the Blackjack is the best of
both worlds using the body of a classic 45 ton support mech with the autocannon and
arms a Hunchback; a brawler in close quarters.

==Battle History:==
In the climax of the battle, the Blackjack was out of ammo for the Whirlwind
autocannons and using its quartet of Intek Medium lasers and maneuvering with
jump jets to wear down the opposing Hunchback who was down to two reloads for
the Tomodzuru AC/20 and its pair of Ichiba 2000 lasers. The pilot of the
Blackjack kept the fight going for another 45 minutes as the pilot of the
Hunchback kept his ammo in reserve.

The Blackjack became over confident at one point and was cornered, over
heating and unable to use its jump jets. The Hunchback, sensing a win opened
up with a single shot that ripped off the left torso of the Blackjack who
fired his two remaining medium lasers at an unparalleled moment of luck, the
beams converging with the last reload of autocannon ammo through the armor of
the Hunchback. In a catastrophic explosion, the Hunchback was defeated and
both pilots jettisoned at the same time.

After several days of evaluating the outcome of the match it was determined
the Blackjack won by only a thousandths of a second ejecting slower. The mech
would continue to a middle weight champion for the next half decade before the
repair costs started to catch up; it was sold to a mercenary outfit who used
it to great use in the war of 3039 before it was ultimately destroyed.

Couldn't really think of better fluff, just a 45 ton Blackjack with the left/right torso/arms and autocannon from the Hunchback.

The fluff sells this one, sells it really well. I could see this being one of those stories on Solaris that get told time and time again tell it takes on a life of its own.

Given time and plenty of paper, a philosopher can prove anything.
