================================================================================================
Overview:
    An aftermarket refit of the CTF-1X Cataphract, serving as a testbed for the new Heavy Gauss
    Rifle in Steiner space.  While somewhat lacking at long ranges, it becomes a force to be
    reckoned with at close quarters.

Capabilities:
    Due to its nature as a refit, the -1XS Cataphract uses the standard structural components
    and armoring of the original; however, the heat sinks are upgraded to double strength
    versions. All weapons save the medium lasers are removed; the torso lasers are refit to fire
    forward, and an additional laser is added to the left arm.  The weight and space freed by
    stripping the AC/10 and PPC are used to mount a Heavy Gauss Rifle in the right torso, with
    four tons of ammo spread between the head, center torso, and left torso of the 'Mech.  The
    effects of the rifle's detonation are mitigated by the installation of CASE in the right
    torso, and  the armor protection of the 'Mech is brought up to thirteen and a half tons of
    standard armor.
