================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Warbird is the signature assault 'Mech of the military organisation known as "Arctic
    Silence" (AS). This variant came about as a gift to the First Prince to celebrate the
    one-year anniversary of the signing of the "Arctic Silence-Federated Suns Alliance
    Agreement" (or "AFFSA Agreement" for short) passed on 22nd June, 3137. While the First
    Prince could not use the 'Mech himself due to political reasons, he gave it to a close
    relative of his as a congratulations gift for the promotion that relative recieved recently.
    A pair of WRB-4Ls with both the Arctic Silence Insignia and Federated Suns Insignia were
    gifted to the royal guard on New Avalon on the same occasion, celebrating the union between
    the major and minor powers.
    
    The WRB-4L is rared than the WRB-4 it is based upon, because it utilises more rare and
    expensive Clan-Tech equipment. Less than 20 have been produced in total in the ten years
    since its introduction, making their gift to the First Prince all the more special.

Capabilities:
    The Warbird WRB-4L is designed to be a medium-long range assault 'Mech capable of delivering
    accurate and consistent damage to enemy targets, especially units with configurations suited
    to closer-range engagements. It uses a Clan-Tech 300-rated XL engine to achieve a maximum
    velocity of 54 kph.
    
    This rare 100 ton assault 'Mech carries 4 Clan-Tech Large Pulse Lasers linked to a Clan-Tech
    Targeting Computer and 2 Clan-Tech LRM-15s with Artemis V FCS and enough ammo to fire 12
    salvos each, protected by Clan-Tech CASE II. It features the Angel ECM Suite of the WRB-4 to
    round out its equipment.
    
    As well as the armoured shoulders and life support of the WRB-4, the WRB-4L has an armoured
    cockpit, an inclusion made in the knowledge that it was intended the First Prince would use
    this 'Mech. Clever engineering ensures that the 'Mech's ejection system is not hampered by
    this extra protection.

Deployment:
    As aforementioned, the WRB-4L has been used by a close relative of the First Prince and the
    royal guard on New Avalon. It has also been piloted by Alisa Wolfstein as her prefered
    Warbird variant.
    
    There have been no salvaged Warbirds, the few that would have been lost to the enemy
    destroyed by their Mechwarriors through overloading the fusion engine. This fact is a source
    of pride to the Fed' Suns and AS, and a source of bitterness to the Lyran Alliance.

Variants:
    There are (as of 3142) two main variants of the Warbird (which are split into multiple
    sub-variants):
    The WRB-4 and WRB-4L, the WRB-3 & WRB-3X and the WRB-3S.
    The '-4' and '-4L' have a slightly different chassis to the '-3', -3X' and '-3S'.

Notable MechWarriors:
    The Warbird has been piloted by Alisa Wolfstein on several notable occasions, and a close
    relative of the First Prince uses a WRB-4L as his personal 'Mech of choice.
