The Infighter Battlemech is a experimental design created in house by the techs of Strider's Strikers. The brainchild Rocky Potts and Dr. Byron Jones, the custom 70 ton heavy 'mech built around the prototype Thunderclap 20 assault weapon, a close range energy weapon. Equipped with Triple Strength Myomers, 6 Small Lassers and a Mace, the Infighter is a devastating Battlemech in close combat. A super charger and jump jets allow the 'mech uncanny mobility and a Null Signature System provides stealth. A ER Large Laser provides some long range firepower until the Mechwarrior closes in to bring the rest of the Infighters awesome strength and firepower to bear.
While many recognized the infighter by its huge mace, Mechwarrior Ryan 'Dumbluck' Allen who pilots the mech prefers using the Infighter's other signature weapon, the Thunderclap 20 over melee combat. Thanks to the Thunderclaps firepower, Allen doesn't often need to worry about his lacking melee skills.
