There are two main improvements over the Raider that have taken shape in this mech:
1. The stability issue of the legs of the Raider has been resolved in the Naginata.
2. The power plant that was seen on the Raider has been gretly improved, now allowing for almost 12 hours. The power supply can generate energy indefinitely, but the drain caused by a mech's systems means the time is reduced.
Each of the autocannons have just 5 shots, but they are crippling weapons. The inferno missiles are launched from the pod on the left 'arm' of the mech, while the LRM's are in the 2 pods mounted above.

I reckon that this is one of the best mechs that I have built, if not the best. It took me a little while to decide on what to do with the upper half of the mech, but I got to a design I liked in the end. Initially, the laser cannons were just a single cannon, and there were no upper missile pods, but that all changed to what it is now. Anyway, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave your ratings and thoughts.
