================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Eagle is Curtiss Militech's foray into the light BattleMech class, a follow-up to their
    highly successful and extremely popular Wraith medium 'Mech. The Curtiss designers chose to
    keep the Wraith's mobility, though they made the Eagle somewhat slower to make room for
    weaponry. They also equipped the Eagle with a standard engine, hoping to keep down
    production costs and increase the 'Mech's survivability. The Eagle's standard chassis design
    makes battlefield repair easier; the shipments of replacement parts that the Wraith required
    cut deeply into profits.
    
    The original Eagle design, the EGL-1M, lacked the TAG system. When the LCCC introduced
    the new semi-guided LRMs, Curtiss designers added the TAG, expecting great demand for a
    speedy light 'Mech that could target for such missiles. So far, they seem to have been
    right; the Free Worlds League and Capellan militaries have both placed orders, many from
    units that already use the Wraith and feel they can depend on a Curtiss-built 'Mech.

Capabilities:
    Though not as fast as many 'Mechs in its weight class, the Eagle packs quite a punch at long
    ranges and runs fairly cool despite the high heat generated by its weaponry. Though intended
    to supplement the ER large and medium lasers, the TAG gear is also capable of targeting
    units for either Arrow IV systems or the deadly new semi-guided missiles. Should neither be
    available as support for the Eagle's unit, the Eagle can deal a significant amount of damage
    for its size with its lasers. This 'Mech's multiple uses make it valuable to commanders, and
    its initial sales reflect that fact.

Deployment:
    Eagles have been shipped to units all over the Free Worlds League, and small numbers have
    shipped to the Capellan Confederation. Various Marik Militia units received the majority,
    followed by Fusiliers of Oriente units.
