Overview:
    The Phoenix Hawk, one of the most common designs in the Inner Sphere, was an early candidate
    for recovered technology, with new models in full production at no less than five factories.
    The Free Worlds League model, PXH-3M, produced by Earthwerks Incorporated at Keystone,
    takes advantage of the lightweight XL engine and Endo Steel internal structure to upgrade
    its weaponry.  Two extended-range large lasers replace the single normal-range large laser,
    the two medium lasers now incorporate pulse technology, and an anti-missile system replaces
    one of the two machine guns.  Furthermore, Cellular ammunition Storage Equipment protects
    the ammunition from internal explosion.
    
    The PXH-3D model, produced by Archenar BattleMechs on New Avalon, is similar to the FWL
    'Mech.  It lacks the CASE and the machine gun, replacing them with two heat sinks.  It has
    much better ability to dissipate heat because all its heat sinks are double-strength.
    
    Coventry Metal Works produces the PXH-3S model, which has a single Thunderbolt-12 Large
    Pulse Laser in the right arm instead of the extended-range laser in each arm.  It also
    sticks with the regular medium lasers.  Lexington Ltd. High Grade Ferro-Fibrous Armor
    improves its protection, mostly on the arms and legs.  Its main distinction is its Myomer
    Acceleration Signal Circuitry, allowing a burst of speed to surprise an enemy or helping the
    'Mech escape when defeat seems imminent.
    
    Finally, Alshain Weapons on Jarett and the Gorton, Kingsley, and Thorpe Enterprises
    plant on Satalice are gearing up to produce the PXH-3K version for the Draconis Combine and
    Free Rasalhague Republic.  This version will employ New Samarkand Royal Ferro-Fibrous Armor,
    but not Endo Steel construction.  It will also have twelve double heat sinks.  Eliminating
    the anti-missile system and machine gun also precludes the need for CASE.
