HSR 200-D Hussar by GiorgioEspinos HSR 200-D Hussar by GiorgioEspinos
Description

The Hussar was one of the SLDF's most popular and widely-used recon 'Mechs. It was originally conceived and constructed as an infantry support 'Mech, but, as it reached units, its incredible speed naturally lent the Hussar to a scouting role and eventually allowed it to take the place of the majority of light scout vehicles in use at the time. Its excellent communications gear allowed the Hussar to operated deep behind enemy lines, able to report not only enemy movements but also jam their communications and listen in on transmissions between enemy 'Mechs from as far away as thirty-five kilometers.

The Hussar was also the 'Mech that put Newhart Industries on the map when the 'Mech and its primary weapon proved to be reliable and easy to maintain and the SLDF put in several orders for larger 'Mechs from Newhart based on this reputation. Like other 'Mechs from the era, the Hussar saw a lost in capabilities with the fall of the Star League, although the communication system on surviving 'Mechs proved to be quite robust in the hands of good technicians. In 3055, Coventry Metal Works licensed the ability to produce the Hussar, which it did until the Word of Blake attacked Coventry in 3068.
[edit] Armament

The Hussar has a single weapon on its chassis in a unique turreted mount on the center torso, the Newhart Extended Range Large Laser. While the use of a single weapon to provide defensive capabilities limits the Hussar, the superior reach of the ER Large Laser allows the the 'Mech to engage enemies at a standoff range and its speed allows the Hussar to dictate the range of the engagement, forcing enemies to fight on its terms.

It reminds me of a T-Rex.
