     The Cruncher is a new design by the Federated Suns. 
It is an effort to be able to combat mechs at serveal 
different ranges.
     The Cruncher's main weapon is the Autocannon20. 
This massive weapon does alot of damage, and can 
cripple some mechs.The 2 large lasers are for striking 
hard and fast, and knocking an opponent down 
hard.These lasers have alot of power, giving the mechs 
some punch when its Autocannon runs out of ammo. The 
LRM 5 is meant to be for fire support and for wearing 
down opposing mechs so that when the Cruncher closes 
on it, Its lasers and Autocannon can easily finish it off.
   The Cruncher is a good all around mech, but has some 
defects. It has slow speed, but the 3 jump jets lets it jump 
and get into an enemys backside, wheres its weapons 
can do the most damage.It sometimes has problems with 
overheating. Early variants didnt have case. We took off 
1 heat sink so that we could add case for both the LRM 
and the Autocannon. This has put many pilot's fears 
aside. The mechs also runs out of ammo in the middle of 
battle sometimes. This is why it has 2 Large Lasers, 
letting it have some power left when its ammo is gone..., 
   The Federated Suns shall start deploying this unit in 
limited numbers so as to test them out. If they do good, 
then they shall begin mass production...
