================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Rising Star was produced in low numbers during the first Star League and discontinued
    because it did not fare well.
    Later its targeting system had been proven faulty but the Succession Wars ended all
    intentions to put the Mech back into production.

Capabilities:
    As most old Star League mechs it didnīt incorporate much advanced technology.
    A good mix of weapons guaranteed a high damage curve and the heavy armor combined with a
    standard engine and CASE made it hard to take down. With its good heat dissipation
    capability (despite carrying standard heat sinks) and its jump jets the Rising Star would
    have been a dangerous and tough fighter but its faulty targeting system doomed it.

Deployment:
    The Rising Star was build only in small numbers for the SLDF and none of them survived the
    First Succession War.

Variants:
    Some 300 years later Skobel found the original design in its data-archives as it looked for
    new ideas for an assaultmech for the Word of Blake forces.
    So the Rising Star was reborne as LGC-01 Legacy.
