Overview:
    Small mech, big gun that is all the PEST has to offer. Now this is the latest model
    requested by the wolf dragoons to be upgraded to clan technology.

Capabilities:
    Like the default IS production model, the clan tech version of the PEST mounts the exact
    weapons and equipment. However, the new Ripper Series A1 Clan grade ERPPC imparts 50% more
    firepower for lesser tonnage and heat, coupled with that Clan Targetting computer are never
    fooled by IS ECM. The PEST is now truely a dangerous opponent. Further enhancement moved the
    Targetting computer to the centre torso which makes the expensive equipment well protected.
    
    
    
    To make the PEST even really more pesky, Blackwell added a MASC system into the little mech,
    pushing it into excess of 160 km/h making it one of the fastest hunter killers available to
    WD. With such speed the WD mechwarrior can easily rush to the scene as an emergency
    reinforcement, retreat offworld quickly after a raid or simply hunt things down. Fast. The
    PEST still retains it arms though for picking up objects.
    
    
    
    Several variants have appeared, often depending on the mechwarrior's taste, some remove the
    Masc and replace it with a Clan grade ECM suite for convert missions. Others drop it for a
    simple ER medium lasers. Others drop both the MASC and targetting computer for a trio of ER
    mediums lasers, 6 machines guns with half a ton of ammo and Active probe for infantry
    shredding firepower or a Streak SRM4.
    
    
    
    Indeed the Clan variant of the PEST has plenty of internal space and can be modifed for
    various uses (at the expense of the techs of course). In light of so many mechwarriors often
    swapping parts around, Blackwell is seriously whether the mech can be rebuild as an Omni
    design.
    
    

Deployment:
    The PEST is now one of the smallest firesupport mechs the Wolf Dragoons have in their
    inventory. Although high cost permits large scale deployment, the Pest has made its way into
    WD raiding parties and deep strike units. The mech's light weight makes it a good filler
    sniper for companies that have Dropships that can afford that extra bit of tonnage.
