================================================================================================
Overview:
    The need for a strong anti-infantry 'Mech with offensive capabilities was realized during
    the battles against Stefan the Usurper. In many conflicts, especially urban combat, infantry
    could render smaller 'Mechs inoperative. To solve this problem, MatherTechno Inc. introduced
    the VL 2-T Vulcan.
    
    This BattleMech reached the front line during General Kerensky's landings on Earth,
    where it earned a reputation as a tough urban fighting machine. Its flamer system, machine
    gun, and heavy armor performed effectively against infantry. The autocannon system was
    originally designed as an anti-'Mech system, but served well in city fighting.

Capabilities:
    The Vulcan is fully equipped with jump jets, making it unique in urban warfare and
    threatening to larger BattleMechs. Also, its rear-mounted jets are specially vented to
    reduce heat in its rear areas.
    
    The Vulcan's weaponry systems include the reliable Armstrong autocannon. Though
    introduced as an anti-'Mech measure, it was used more as an anti-building measure when more
    and more Vulcans found themselves stationed in city areas.
    
    The Vulcan's armor is not very strong, but does provide more than ample protection
    against most smaller weapons. This 'Mech is rarely assigned without some larger BattleMech
    support in an all-out fight. As the actual alignment of the 'Mech is narrow and difficult to
    target, it is difficult to hit in combat. Many MechWarriors have commented that the Vulcan
    looks like a scarecrow's clothes hung out to dry.
    
    The absence of manipulative hands is the 'Mech's only drawback. Though not a major
    hindrance, it does limit its close combat capabilities against other 'Mechs.
