Description[edit | edit source]

Built on the same chassis as the Sentry and Watchman BattleMechs, the Cuirass is designed for the cavalry role. Its higher ground speed allows it to quickly strike at an enemy formation's flanks and withdraw. Though slower than lighter cavalry units, the 180 meter jump range offsets this disadvantage. To make room for the weapons and engine, the Cuirass uses an XL Gyro, XL Engine, and Endo Steel construction. Though the autocannon ammunition is protected by CASE, pilots should remember that the eight tons of armor is not enough to stop heavy weapons fire. The use of the extralight engine and gyro also make the 'Mech vulnerable to penetrating armor shots. Another drawback is the use of single heat sinks on the 'Mech. Though this reduces cost, MechWarriors who are careless with their heat management can quickly find themselves shut down
