================================================================================================
Overview:
    Wanting to begin development of a new Land-Air 'Mech, the engineers of the premier 'Mech
    builders of their nation decided to begin with the smallest of frames for their new design.
    What they came up with was faster than any previous LAM, but also far less capable of most
    duties, but as a proof of concept design, it did perform decently during testing. Given its
    small size and lack of heavy armament, the engineers jokingly designated the design the
    Mosquito.

Capabilities:
    Massing only 20 tons, the Mosquito barely has room to fit all of its equipment, resulting in
    a design that is hard to maintain (especially as it has many hard to find components), and
    harder to pilot, but whose communications and sensor systems are next to none. The sole
    weapon on the bird is also extremely accurate, but does suffer from a poor cooling jacket
    due to the lack of space.

Deployment:
    All told, the design could be a fairly effective scout, but it requires a sure and steady
    hand at the controls to survive any mission. This, combined with the fact that it was only
    supposed to be a "proof of concept" design, has led to only a handful of Mosquitos having
    made it to the field.
