A Kuritan Sunder, 90 ton assault mech of the 10th Ghost Regiment is pushing into a position held by Blake 52nd Shadow Division infantry. This customized Sunder, nicknamed Samual, is loaded out with almost every anti infantry weapon in the book, terrifying even to these Blake cyborgs. A Malak light mech is rushing the Sunder in ambush but being in it's Dominus configuration is also carrying mostly anti infantry weapons, adding it's previously sustained damage it probably wont fair well.
Sunder Samual weapons:
1 Extended Range Particle Projector Cannon
6 Short Range Missile 4 Launchers (inferno ammo)
4 Flame Throwers
12 Machine Guns (in paired arrays)
sunders are my favorite out of the battletech creations
I love it!
And this is coming from a retired infantryman.
But thatīs their main problem too, being designed on a frame thatīs too weak for the tonnage they finally sport.
Thus, early mdoells had catastrophic failures in the actuators.
Maybe the one pictured above is a later model with reworked legs. Or a complete frankenmech (parts of different mechs glued together), but i donīt think so.
Could be a custom made one for some VIP, a commander of some sort or noble.
But you also have to remember that the Jihad was not strictly on city based planets... in fact, I believe that is why the Black Heart and the Grim Reaper were developed so that the wobbies could have different 'mechs to fit different roles.
