LTA-21 Racoon "old" by Keydan LTA-21 Racoon "old" by Keydan
Designation: LTA-21 "Racoon"
Manufacturer: Ladonin Design Bureau
Unit type: Light Assault Mech
Height: 3.7m (battle stand) 2.4 (roller mode)
Weight: 2.3t
Control type: 1st and 2nd generation
Powerplant: Unidom-334smc powered HUEG-4t Generator (650kW)
Operation time on average power - 500h
Top Speed: 45 km/h (on foot) 85 km/h (on rollers)
Weapons: Pulse Beam Cutter, 2 "Flag" Multi-Purpose Rockets, 22mm autocannon.
Optional Weapons: an arsenal of variations
Spec. Gear: active defense system, mon-mon sensor

With time it became obvious that not every hotspot in the frontline can be filled with a appropriate mech. For one transporting mechs, as well as most other equipment and material takes time, effort, risk. Days if not weeks can pass before sufficient forces could to be mobilized for a full-out heavy assault, but before that a well defended frontline needed to established, and for that firepower is needed.
Before the only support first-in marine squads could get were the small batches of TOJAs and their own heavy weapons, so the raccoons got a warm welcome.
A wide arsenal, a high degree of customization, good sensors, ability to travel on rollers… it’s only real drawback is the lack of a proper frontline armor.
Besides becoming the official marine-mech the raccoon found good use with the militia and police forces, defense and special ops squads, and separatists also.

A bit much power for such "small" (it's only size small tank) unit ;-) 650kW. Anyways, what type of generator is it? I know these are fictional, but I really like to talk about such stuff :-d
Anyhow, great drawing. I wish I could draw such pics :-c

Modern MBTs pack ~900kW with a 10 times more mass though. So for a fictional futuristic 2.3t powermonster 650 is just right. Don't forget the energy weapons are also powered by it.

A HUEG-4t is a Unidom-334smc powered energy generator. HUEG-4t standing for - Hard Unidom Energy Generator for max payload of 4 tons. Unidom is a type of a very dense and rare alloy with a bundle of unique properties (that defied a few laws of physics just by existing :B ) found only in zones where once dead stars were, or a secondary star form from dead ones. On any normal planet you'd be lucky to find a few grams of Unidom.

:-O Works for me!

Actually is it 20 times more mass :-D But it is quite right, what you say, since the energy weapons might take most of it :-@.
Thanks for answer! ;-D
