[Mech] Cat

In 3020 the FOIS had their teams design a new machine with many variants in hopes that it would sell well among the many houses and Mercenaries alike.

The new mech was given the name CAT as they had been brain storming all night long and running on coffee, energy drinks, and pizza yet no one could think of a name.

The team resorted to putting names on a dart board and threw darts at it and the one with the most darts was the name.

In the end the name was ‘CAT’ and when asked later on they simply said “The cam comes from how sleek it is and the grace of a cat as it moves”.

Yet the team leader raised an eyebrow as it did not look like a graceful ‘cat’ by any means but knew better than to question his team as last time he did they had the techs paint the last test mech hot pink and had silk covering for the command couch which annoyed the Davion rep and got him into trouble with HQ.

Three heavy machines stood like a sleeping giants painted default gray with different weapons though they are just three of eight, however a few was designed for Solaris seven warriors.

Ben was looking at the C-1L which housed a large amount of Missiles however for that many missiles some things had to be scarified.

The C-2W was more of a medium to short range machine as it carried a Particle Projection Cannon, four Medium Lasers, an SRM six, along with machineguns to help fend off infantry.

The third was the C-1A which is a mix of short to long range thanks to the Large Lasers, Medium Lasers, and four Long Range Missile five packs.
Ben got first pick of the three mechs for live combat against three mechs chosen by the Davion Rep.

A Grasshopper 5H, Jagermech 6-S, and a Victor 9M which made it look as if the Davion wanted to see how long the new machines would last before being destroyed.

Ben had chosen the C-1L as he was skilled with LRMs and nicknamed the machine ‘Iron Rain’ while Jessica had chosen the 2W for its close range weapon package, and Tina had the 1A which was the mix of ranged weapons.

Though the two that mounted LRMs had a new targeting and tracking system that had fixed the minim range problem with the LRMs by firing the Missiles in a high arc that would then come down on their targets like deadly rain.

The only downside to this is the closer the enemy the higher up the missiles have to fly which would give the target time to dodge most of the missiles.
Still it is something no other LRM carrying mech could do.

The Testing ground was large with a big lake being fed by a river with thickets of trees, and low hills barely able to give cover to assault mechs.

The two groups of mechs started at the edges of the testing grounds and to add to the fight it started just before dawn and dew was glistening in the pale light as the sun slowly started to rise and painting the sky beautiful colors that would have been nice to watch however the serene sky would soon be filled with smoke and the sounds of battle.

Ben sighed at the beauty and wished he could enjoy it but knew he wouldn't be able to.

“What a lovely morning for a fight.” Tina said.

“Yeah, yeah let’s just get this over with and teach them that they shouldn't underestimate these machines.” Jessica said.

Ben nodded silently as they left their mech bay and soon they had warnings of incoming missiles which was just outside their maxim rang and impacting the ground before them which sent dirt flying harmlessly at their machines.

Ben had ordered them not to fire until they was sure they could get a solid lock or close to it.

A few more minutes Ben and Tina was within rage of their missiles and once their cross hairs burned golden they let lose a hail storm of missiles and the smoke from the missiles darkened the sky as seventy missiles quickly raced towards the Jagermech which blew off armor from the left torso, right arm, and a few hit the head shaking the enemy pilot within while a few blew holes into the ground.

They released another wave of Missiles that tore into the Jagermech and blowing off the rest of the armor from the left torso which then tore into the internal structure which was enough to blow off the arm and setting off the full ton of unused ammunition which caused a massive explosion which sent limbs and armor flying.

Ben was thankful to see the pilot sail high in the air and landed safely far from the crater where the Jagermech once was.

Tina laughed and whooped at the first kill of the early morning.

Ben shook his head as he seen the sky’s beauty ruined by smoke from the dead machine.
While they was busy with the Jagermech they hadn’t noticed the Victor which now sailed over the low hill and fired its Autocannon sending a solid round as it was still in the air and the round struck true and tore into the Left arm followed by a flight of SRMs and Medium Lasers which blew off the arm and deprived her of half her primary weapons.

The Pilot of the Victor clearly became over confident as it was within the minim range of her LRMs.

The pilot was surprised that she fired her LRMs which went high into the sky before arcing and heading back down as the war heads was fully armed and blew holes into the Victor’s armor from all over though failed to do more than blast craters into the mech’s hide.

He followed up with her large laser and her two medium lasers which tore into the right and left arm cutting a nasty scar into them while the Large Laser left a nasty gash across the center torso.

Ben added to its pain where twenty five missiles struck home, blowing off the last of the armor from the center torso and right arm which damaged the Autocannon which destroyed the weapon.

The pilot of the Victor was clearly not a fool and dumped its ammunition for the Auto cannon.

The Grasshopper now joined the fight as it landed behind Tina’s Machine and unloaded all of its weapons in to the paper thin armor which tore into it and sending massive amounts of energy into her machine setting off her own ammunition which she had managed to eject from dying machine and damaging both the Grasshopper and Ben’s mech stripping large amounts of armor from his left side while doing most of the damage to the entire torso of the Grasshopper.

Jessica roared in anger as she fired everything she had at the Grasshopper which ravaged it’s left torso as she fired as fast as her weapons could cycle.
Her heat level was in danger of going into the red which would ether set off her ammunition or shutdown.

Sending the Grasshopper off balanced Jessica punched it in the face while at the same time firing all three Machine guns destroying the head out right.

“What the…” Ben started to say when Jessica interrupted “Tina isn't moving!”
Ben knew Tina was Jessica’s sister and both very skilled warriors but Jessica tends to go berserk when her sister is danger.

"Calm down, She is alright, just knocked out." Ben said.

The Victor closed range and went to throw a punch which Ben blocked with his left arm missile rack jamming it but didn't care as he then kicked it and then back handed the Victor sending it to the ground and tilted over it as his mech’s head tilted a little bringing the Laser to target on its head.

Jessica now calm walked over to the Victor and grabbed the mech’s left arm while putting her foot on the torso and ripped off the arm and started to beat the mech with it until the pilot surrender and powered down not wanting to stay the focuses of her wrath.

Ben looked back to the sky as he watched the sun as it rose higher in the sky but it was then hidden behind rain clouds and a down pour started.
Ben sighed, “The weather was suppose to have been clear and no rain.” Ben said with a frown.

The Rep’s jaw dropped in shock and then closed it and turned to Jimmy Jade who watched the fight with him.

“We will pay to have the mechs fully repaired and will even throw in a free King Crab for the loss of your pilot.” Jimmy said which seemed to calm the rep somewhat and nodded saying nothing else.

Jimmy was lucky that they still managed to make a sale as they ordered a lance of mechs however the C-1L and the C-1A was not for sell using the excuse of there was bugs that needed to be worked out.
