"Are cybered-up loonies trashing your town? Do you find your squad in need of something powerful, protected, and fully tactical that won't break the budget? Are your Police cruisers just not up to the job of crashing through walls, scampering up stairs and assaulting directly into the hooligans hide out, bringing fear and justice to those that really really really deserve it? You want a little something to put behind the counter that will make punks think twice about trying to rob you, but don't have the space for a Nandayo-Lopez "Scorpion" hexapod combat frame with 90mm low-recoil anti-material canon and dual 30mm AC arms in the garage?
"Then you just might want to take a look at the Fuller-Klimpt "Vantage"!
It's fully tactical!
It's cyber-link as standard, and it won't break the bank!
"Able to shrug off even heavy-caliber small-arms fire and minor vehicle collisions, the Vantage comes standard with multi-payload riot control grenade launchers on independently swiveling mounts, a 14mm caseless (and governed) hyper-liquid polymer cooled machine gun in each arm, and crowbar-proof dual color warning light and siren bar capable of having your country, department, or security companies preferred color of lights installed! And, using our patented "gecko-grip" special polymer drive balls, you know you'll be able to grip any surface whether you're blasting down the highway in pursuit of those guilty suspects or walking across a dewy meadow. Who needs articulated digit style feet? Not Vantage!
And unlike some other Cyber-Drive Armors (>ahem< Brunai Corp. Walrus anyone? >cough cough<) your Vantage has never run amok during testing, hijacked the operators brain and driven into a landing plane at the most inopportune time, nor has the Vantage been sited as a reason for the escalating tension between two countries on the brink of war.
When you want the best, get a Lomax "Sentinel". When you want an affordable ad-vantage, get a Vantage!"
All of that is a very long-winded way to say "hey, check out this little mech for the Spec-Sec line we just sent off to get printed!"
Yep, it's a "tinting" of a grey scale image...
The Vantage is meant to be a budget-friendly alternative to combat type mechs like landmates, for low-impact urban use. Perfect for police forces and security companies, it can shrug off most commonly encountered small arms and packs enough punch to bring down lightly-cybered enemies. But don't expect it to stand up to your average group of Edgerunners! Luckily it's angular construction and utilitarian ruggedness means that damaged body panels and appendages can be easily replaced by even average motorpools without the need for specialty equipment.
The Vantage is small. In 15mm miniature terms it's 2.8cm long from nose to tip of exhaust ports, almost 2cm tall, and 2.6cm wide from "toe" to "toe", perfect for use as a 15mm mech, drone, or 28mm bot.
We'll tell you more as the release date for the first wave of the Sec-Sec line approaches, but rest assured that there is a LOT in the works!
