The Mad Cat MK II is a 90-ton assault BattleMech. It uses its speed and firepower to engage an enemy at the range of its choosing. The default configuration of the Mad Cat MK II features hard-hitting ballistics and a well-blended mix of energy and missile weaponry. The Mad Cat MK II's primary weapons are a pair of Gauss Rifles, each of which can strip off a ton of armor at six hundred and thirty meters. The rifles are supported by two LRM-10s which give the Mech indirect fire capability. For short range combat, four ER Medium Lasers can chew up what's left of the opposition. The Mech's primary role is long to medium range combat, with best performance within 450 meters where all of its weapons can reach the opponent.
