This modular artillery attatchment can be mounted on any mech equipped with a standardized "backpack" hard-point. Two interchangeable weapon systems are currently available; the LRB7 howitzer and the Banshee missle-pod.
The pilot can employ these weapons at will, using droids for long-range sighting if needed. Alternately, the artillery can be doped to TacNet, turning the units into mobile bombardment platforms. A commander can coordinate sustained barrages while the individual pilots are left free to maneuver and defend themselves.
The howitzers stowed.
One extended, with shell cartridge removed. A support crew of some type is needed to replace spent cartridges in the field. a full range of Shell types are available.
Howitzers replaced with Banshee missile pods, in stowed positions.
