The Tarantula
tar1.jpg

STATISTICS:
 
CREW: 1 pilot
 
PROPULSION:  MekTek superlite Mini reactor drive system (JumpJet equipped)
 
WEAPONS:  2 MK I lasers, 1 LRM 2 missile rack

Probably the smallest mech in existence, the Tarantulas that the Clan has are used for scouting and patrol duties, never combat.

ENGINEERING NOTES:
 
The Tarantula is a mechanic's nightmare.  So much in so little, it is barely able to operate without problems.  So far, they are fixable, but incredibly annoying.
