================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Scorpion is an unusual design that has few proponents.  When the last factory to produce
    it was destroyed in the Second Succession War, no company stepped forward to keep the design
    alive.  Since then, the number of Scorpions has dwindled further with each new war.
    
    The root of the 'Mechs unpopularity is its four-legged design.  This gives the
    MechWarrior a rough ride, requires sophisticated gyros, and limits the weaponry that the
    Scorpion can carry.
    
    With so few Scorpions still in fighting form, there is no need for a standard
    modification kit to incorporate recovered technology into the design.  Several
    owner-operators have refused to concede the Scorpion's inferiority, exchanging the
    antiquated Anderson Armaments Particle Cannon PPC 12 for the commonly available new Magna
    Firestar Extended-Range Particle Projection Cannon.
