================================================================================================
Capabilities:
    Based on the TDR-9M, the -9Ma sacrifices jump capability in the name of increased firepower.
    The Light Gauss Rifle is removed in favour of an Ultra Autocannon 10 in the Right Arm, with
    3 tons of reloads. The LRM-15 is moved to the Left Torso (alongside its 2 tons of reloads)
    and upgraded with an Artemis IV FCS system. This is to spread out the weapons, so that the
    loss of one side torso does not also remove most of the -9Ma's firepower. CASE is added to
    the Left Torso to protect the pilot in the event that the relocated LRM ammunition explodes.
    Upgrading the engine to a Light Fusion model allows the trio of ER Medium lasers to be
    swapped out for 3 Medium Pulse lasers. Finally, the armour is reduced by half a ton and
    changed to Light Ferro Fibrous, providing roughly the same protection as the -9M.
