Overview:
    Created to return the design more to its roots, the "Kamikaze 2" variant of the Charger is
    produced by Sapphire Metals plant on Shimonita.

Capabilities:
    The Kamikaze 2 was designed for one type of combat only; it was designed to close as fast as
    possible with its enemies and conduct charge and other physical attacks to take down that
    enemy as fast as possible. A combination of myomer acceleration signal circuitry and a
    supercharger allows the design to maintain consistent speeds of over 100 kph, or can produce
    bursts of acceleration making the 'Mech reach over 140 kph. This allows the 'Mech to close
    with its enemies extremely quickly, and makes for devastating charge attacks. For areas with
    more built up terrain, 5 jump jets allow it to cover 150 meters at a time. The frame itself
    is covered with 14.5 tons of armored plate, making it difficult to take it down before it
    closes.
    
    To get this amount of mobility resulted in a 'Mech with less than 20 tons of offensive
    equipment. Of this, 13 tons were devoted to melee weapons. Each side torso has been equipped
    with spikes, while the hand actuators have been replaced with claws, making a fearsome
    design, but in appearance and in the damage it can do up close. This left only 4 tons for
    ranged weapons, which led the designers to acquiring Clan-tech lasers from Clan Sea Fox.
    Each side torso has a pair of extended range small lasers, while the head has a pair of
    extended range medium lasers. Being Clan-tech, an alpha-strike hit will threaten to
    knockdown any 'Mech it faces.

Deployment:
    Being such a specialist design, this model of Charger is facing an uphill battle for
    acceptance in the DCMS, particularly as its brand of melee combat is not seen as very
    honorable by many. Still, for those that choose it, the Kamikaze 2 has proven itself to be
    an effective combatant.
