================================================================================================
Overview:
    The number of 'mechs at the Star League's disposal enabled the SLDF to deploy a proportion
    of specialist configurations far in excess of specialized designs deployed by the Successor
    States, who's limited 'mech resources deter military commanders from configuring 'mechs for
    use in specific situations.  The LCT-17B is an example of such a specialist configuration.

Capabilities:
    The LCT-17 was envisioned as a dedicated infantry hunter.  It was typically deployed in a
    lance with three Locust-1Vs, which could provide heavier firepower against any armor
    opposition, while the LCT-17 would use it's Beagle Probe to detect hidden infantry unts
    before they could ambush the thinly armored Locusts.  It was never deployed alone, as it's
    lack of anti-mech weapons left it vulnerable, although it's speed constitutes a significant
    defense.

Deployment:
    The LCT-17 saw heavy action during the urban warfare which characterized the Reunification
    War and the early battles of the Succession Wars.  It was never a widely popular 'mech, but
    many of it's pilots developed considerable tactical skill, learning to exploit the
    capabilities of this unique 'mech to the utmost.
