Tonnage: 50 tons

Sarna Info: Atlas

The ExampleMech is a showcase 'Mech built to display various features for the purpose of the wiki style guide. It's combat history is nil and its weapons and equipment nothing to write home about. If it was fielded, it would probably be used as a workhorse Medium like the Centurion it closely resembles.

[Short paragraph about what it is known for and how it is used. Infobox shows the information that is the same regardless of variant. With how HBS BT works, that's not much. An image of the base variant, Weight Class, Tonnage, number of stock variants in game and the cost range from cheapest to most expensive variant. A link to the 'Mech's sarna.net page is also inserted to cover the lore stuff.
