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.
