================================================================================================
Overview:
    Designed to bring the Gladiator to a new generation of 'MechWarriors, the GLD-6R was met
    with mixed opinions: as the revival of the the first step in BattleMech production in the
    Draconis Combine or as an ill fated 'Mech that was destined to an early obsolescence.
    
    Using a Targeting Computer linked Extended-Range Particle Projector Cannon as its primary
    weapon whilst retaining the jump jets from earlier models, the Gladiator still has excellent
    mobility on the Battlefield. Additionally, the SRM-6 remains but with double the reloads
    over the GLD-4R, enabling it to remain in the fight for longer than before (half of these
    shots are standard and the remaining 15 are  Inferno). It also moves the SRM launcher to the
    other arm and in doing so rectifies the inherent balance problem in Gladiators. To cope with
    the increase in heat, the Heat Sinks are upgraded to from single to double HS.
    
    The 'Mech has these Design Quirks:
    
    Accurate Weapon (ER PPC)
    Cowl
    Bad Reputation
    Difficult to maintain
