Overview:
    (the WarBoar made its first apeparance here
    http://www.mordel.net/barandgrill.php?redirect=viewtopic&p=84309&highlight=#84309)
    A challenge was put forth, and Ground Zero Salvage and Technology accepted. A fast.
    inexpensive, heavy hitter was needed, and while not as light or fast as the other entries,
    GZT feels that the War Boar could fill the need nicely.

Capabilities:
    The War Boar is 55 tons of pain.It has better than average speed, and a knock out punch in
    the arm mounted Autocannon/20. The cannon is mounted in such a fashion to give it the
    greatest field of fire possible, thus the mech has no right arm hand actuator or lower arm
    actuator. Three medium lasers back the cannon up. There seeme to only be two main detractors
    for the design though. The 11 heatsinks and 8 tons of standard armor have been cited by test
    pilots to be inadequate to meet the needs of the mech or the pilot. The designers response
    was basically" But the gun! Look at the big freakin gun!" Despite this discouraging
    response, the designers have actullay taken the WarBoar and are looking at ways to increase
    protection with out taking too large a hit to firepower.

Deployment:
    No WarBoars have been deployed with units outsideof Stonkin Mechs Inc at this time.

Variants:
    The only variant proposed at this time was to replace the11 standard heatsinks with10
    double, using the space savings to install CASE for the ammo in the right torso. This
    version also trades out the standard armor for a Ferro weave variant to increase protection.
    A small laser is mounted under the cockpit as well. This does raise the cost of the machine,
    though.
