The Cheetah was introduce to replace the North's previous reconnaissance Heavy Gear, the Bobcat and Ferret, by using a frame similar to the Hunter's and the latest in cutting-edge technology.  This made the Cheetah a more capable combatant, though its light armoring still means it must rely on speed and maneuverability to get out of trouble.[1]

UsageEdit

The Cheetah proved itself in its first conflict, engaging the Colonial Expeditionary Force during the War of the Alliance in TN 1913. It helped secured its place as the premier scout unit for all Northern forces, and many variants were created during and since then to take advantage of the Cheetah's capabilities.[1]

Perks and FlawsEdit

VariantsEdit

Military PoliceEdit

The MP Cheetah sacrifices some of its sensor capabilities in exchange for Backup Sensors and Reinforced Armor (2 Front, 2 Left). Its normal weapon loadout is replaced with a Fragmentation Cannon with 30 rounds and an Anti-Personnel Grenade Launcher with 12 rounds.[2]

ParatrooperEdit

The Paratrooper Cheetah has been modified to make it Airdroppable with a Rugged Movement System and Chassis Reinforcement. Its standard weaponry is a Light Autocannon with 30 rounds and a Light Grenade Launcher with 10 shots.[3]
