The Jaguar was developed as a possible successor to the North's first Heavy Gear, the Hunter. An advanced commando/general purpose Gear, the Jaguar was very similar to the Hunter in most regards, but with significant improvements: more powerful weapons and actuators, improved sensors and communication systems, reinforced chassis and armoring, and a more powerful V-engine. Its only drawback was the bulkier IHADS system, which left little headroom for the pilot.[1]

UsageEdit

The Jaguar entered production just in time to take part in the War of the Alliance against the Colonial Expeditionary Force. It helped turn the tide against the CEF in many roles: as a commando, trooper, command unit, anti-armor unit, and even paratrooper. Continued cost and complexity has prevented it from wholly replacing the Hunter in the cycles since.[1]

Perks and FlawsEdit

VariantsEdit

Military PoliceEdit

In place of its standard weapons and with less advanced sensors, MP Jaguars carry a Fragmentation Cannon with 30 rounds, an Anti-Personnel Grenade Launcher with 12 rounds, Backup Sensors, and Reinforced Armor (2 Front, 2 Left).[2]
