Everything on the Rakrohn mechs is absolutely new. The element of surprise is basically what he was built to exploit. A complex one-way energy column shield array gives him a very sturdy defense, whilst allowing him to fire neuroshock blasts from his mounted trident, practice his sharpshooting skills with his plasma cannon and capture and manipulate long-range enemy attacks with his force-field generator and ray blast response satellite system discs. Also, if the enemy gets too close, his claws and deft maneuvers make quick work of them working in unison with his defense systems. And governing it all, a cutting-edge computer with a direct uplink to a command center several systems away.
