A very fast agile close combat exo mech. It also carries a significant load of missiles (12 Pulse Missiles, 4 Chain Missiles, 18 Light Wraith ECMs) but has no high-resolution guidance system (as a trade-off to stay light). These are typically emptied in a single salvo at the target(s) before rushing head-on to engage them in close combat. For close combat, it is armed with a 2 Death Shard Blades embedded within bio-tech Crustean shield gauntlets that thinks defensively while the pilot fights offensively with the Blades. Due to the Blades' high impact destructive elements, it is worn out relatively fast; hence an extra pair is carried on the mech.
