Description[edit]

The Naja was created by Clan Cloud Cobra to take advantage of the Clan's new improved missile launchers. By using the Kintaro chassis engineers were able to quickly put the 'Mech into production, a key consideration as the Cobras were trying to build up their touman quickly. The Naja was very popular with the Cobras but other Clans didn't use it frequently. In fact they would often trade captured Najas back to the Cloud Cobras. After the Cobras decided to focus on their aerospace arm, the Naja was largely removed from service.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Naja was built around a combination of long and short range missile launchers. The Clan spec LRM-20 provides most of the firepower, while at close range the Improved SRM-6s and SRM-4s can unleash a deadly barrage of missiles. Protected by twelve tons of standard armor plate, the Naja is heavily armored. All the ammunition is protected by Clan CASE. A pair of ER Medium Lasers and an ER Small Laser round out the Naja's arsenal.

Design Quirks[edit]

The Naja has the following Design Quirks:[2]

Variants[edit]

  • KTO-19b-EC 
    The original Naja is an extensive refit of the SLDF Kintaro. Despite using a bulkier Inner Sphere XL Engine and Double Heat Sinks it was an effective 'Mech. The lasers are not the extended range models of the later Naja and it lacks CASE. BV (2.0) = 1,552[3]
