MDG-1A Rakshasa for Battletech


Shipping to United States: $18.92

The Rakshasa was designed by engineers at the New Avalon Institute of Science in an attempt to copy the Mad Cat . The finished product, while not as powerful as the OmniMech it emulates, is a powerful 'Mech with an undeserved bad reputation. The Rakshasa is powered by a GM 375 XL engine and built on a GM Marauder Special MD Endo Steel chassis to save weight and allow the 'Mech to carry as similar a weapons payload as possible to the Mad Cat. The Rakshasa also carries eleven and a half tons of StarGuard Ferro-Fibrous armor giving it slightly less than maximum armor protection.

The Rakshasa carries as its primary long range weapons a pair of Federated 10-shot LRM-10 launchers. These are mated to an Artemis IV fire control system which gives them greater missile accuracy. The LRM launchers are backed up by a pair of ExoStar ER Large Lasers which provide the 'Mech with respectable firepower at long range. For close combat, the Rakshasa carries two Martell Medium Lasers and a Martell Medium Pulse Laser. While not identical to the Mad Cat, the Rakshasa is a formidable 'Mech on the modern battlefield.

Model is printed in a grey resin and supplied with a base.

Great sculpt and print which paints up beautifully. Will be buying more soon.

Thank you A plus, the model has crip details that show more when base coated.

Arrived in great condition, really happy with the quality of the print. Well scaled with the CGL minis
