Mechwrights & Equipment
The last few days has seen the bulk of the work done on the Mechwright (Combat Mechanic). This is set to be a really fun profession where you are highly equipment focused and thus it's a great choice for those gearheads and techies who love messing around with lots of kit. The Mechwright gains some really potent pieces of gear upon completion of elite training such as including...
The CROWBAR cyberframe. A heavy, utilitarian cyberframe fitted with a range of industrial tools, some powerful weapons and a strongbox linked to a GET license so the Mechwrite can access his lockup from anywhere in the world.
He also gains a stock of demolitions, tools, barricades and disposables which are automatically restocked at the start of each mission.
Work has also begun on the equipment section. As well as reprinting some key UIG equipment from other books such as the Raven 220 Magnum, there will be lots of new stuff including mobile barricades, an integrated telepathic converger and a range of new UIG vehicles, because every Black Squad needs it's own APC, hover copter and tank.
