The NMS-1A Nemesis follows NovaStar Armament's
recent trend toward using lighter mechs in assult roles.
When the Federated Suns' call for a pair of mechs went
out, NovaStar Armaments was only too happy to assist.
The Nemesis was named for the ancient Greek goddess
of retribution. It was designed to be a type of escort
primarily for the ZXS-2 Zalmoxis but there is talk about
utilizing it with the upcoming DYN-1 Dionysus as well. Its
high speed and excellent manuverability give it an
advantage over most mechs the Zalmoxis would face.
The Nemesis's primary weapon is its ER-PPC mounted
in the right arm. It also carries a pair of SRM-4's in the
right and left torso. A pair of medium lasers rounds out its
weapons load. The Nemesis was also fitted with a Narc
System to allow it assist in targeting for the Zalmoxis.
The first production models have shown great promise
in tests. One observer commented that it could probably
give a Clan Shadow Cat a run for its money.
