Manufactured by Jalastar Aerospace from their plant on Panpour, the Gunsmith entered service shortly before the Blackout. Despite discontent over the high price tag attached to the Gunsmith - in large part due to the extra-extralight engine - the Gunsmith quickly earned a fearsome reputation as a pursuit BattleMech and raider. Although capable of overheating if the MASC system is overused, the Gunsmith can exceed two hundred kilometers an hour when running, and the combination of the Jalastar Mk. V-CH7 endo-steel chassis and an XL Gyro allowed the Gunsmith to mount five and a half tons of Reflective Armor, which reduces the chance of the expensive PlasmaStar engine taking damage before the Gunsmith can escape from combat. The Gunsmith also makes use of a Full-Head Ejection System.
Weapons and Equipment
The Gunsmith is well-armed for its weight, mounting a quartet of Martell-X Medium X-Pulse lasers, installed in pairs in each arm.
