Making Mechs Part 3

In the introduction to this short series, I explained that in preparation for an upcoming game I have been making a lot of Mechs with the construction rules found in the Tech Manual and the special rules found in Tactical Operations.

Here’s today’s Mech:

My goal for the Silver Knight was to create a Striker that would engage in melee (Hatchet), was heavily armored (both Hardened armor and a Shield) and also had reliable close range weaponry (SRM4, Lasers).  My concern is that it may not be fast enough to keep up with a lot of the mediums.  But, at 5/7/2, it should be able to keep up with a lot of Heavy and Assault Mechs.  At the very least, if it can force enemies to move away from it, that might open up lanes for other Mechs to attack.
