     When the Lyran Alliance broke away from the 
Federated Commonwealth, the Federated Commonwealth 
lost its principle manufacturer of the Wolfhound mech.  As 
such, research was started on a new and improved mech 
design to replace it.  The project was almost terminated 
when the Federated Commonwealth was reunited under 
Katherine Steiner, but several of the Davian loyalist 
engineers, expecting war,  continued the reasearchand 
soon the GHD-1A Greyhound was born.
     The Greyhound uses all the latest technologies to 
make it a formidable mech for its size.  It is much faster 
but the Wolfhound still has slightly better armor and 
weapons.  Its only weapons are its Johnston High Speed 
ER-PPC and paired ER Medium Lasers.  It is, however, 
equiped with jump-jets making the Greyhound an excellent 
scout or disruption mech.  The use of Triple Strength 
Myomers make the Greyhound even more terrifying.
     The Greyhound began production just before the 
outbreak of hostilitys on several FedComm worlds.  While 
dramatically more expensive than the Wolfhound, the 
added survivability and the fact that almost all of its 
components are made in the Federated Suns has ensured 
the Greyhound's place in several loyal Davion RCTs.
