Black Mamba

Black MambaThe Black Mamba is a recent southern design which took the Northern armies by surprise. The Mamba is a totally new machine, a rugged medium Gear designed to replace the earlier "Medium-class" Basilisk Heavy Gear as the advanced model of the Southern Alliance.

The Mamba can be compared favorably with the North's Jaguar, although they are very different in concept. The Mamba uses a carbon composite in its internal frame to reduce the quantity of metal needed in its construction. It also sports rounded composite armor to better deflect incoming rounds.
