    Designed by Clan Snow Raven scientists, the Foxhound is a compromise between the firepower
    of the Puma and the speed of the vaunted Fenris design. With massive XL engines being
    reserved for heavy omni's, the design team chose the 280 XL and the 40-ton frame as best
    suited to a fast medium omnimech.
    NOTE: The original Foxhound design carried 17 ton of pod space and 7 tons of Ferro-Fibrous
    armor.  The Prime variant mistakenly shows only 16.5 tons of pod space and and extra .5 ton
    of armor.  Thanks to Sleeping Dragon for drawing my attention to the error.

    The B variant is a pilot favorite for R-team salvage missions.  The pulse laser and SRM
    combination is highly effective against the vehicles, infantry, and damaged mechs frequently
    encountered during salvage operations.  The low range and limited ammunition of the
    launchers remains a problem, but many pilots feel that speed and the ammo-efficiency of the
    Streak systems makes up for this flaw.  Still, the Foxhound B is seldom sent into action
    without star-mates carrying long-range weaponry.
    This variant is also typically used in conjunction with elementals.

    This design has yet to see major action, but several prototypes have already been
    incorporated into Snow Raven R-teams.
