Overview:

       Clan Star Adder scientists based this 'Mech on the Kingfisher.   Installing an extralight engine nearly doubled the amount of available pod space, though structural constraints forced them to replace the Kingfisher's ferro-fibrous armor with standard plate.     This 'Mech entered service as the Blood Asp, an insult aimed at the Star Adder's longtime rivals, Clan Blood Spirit.

Capabilities:

       Five variants of the Blood Asp have already appeared.   The primary configuration mounts a pair of Gauss rifles, a Streak SRM rack and a trio of lasers in each arm.
       The most common variant is an assault design, configured to deliver maximum firepower with the greatest possible accuracy.   This configuration is well-suited for any type of terrain.   The Beta configuration is outfitted for sustained fire-support missions.
       The C variant relies almost exclusively on ammunition-based weapons, and is therefore best suited for the short and deadly Trials preferred by Clan warriors.   The final variant is configured for long-range suppression fire.   Its lasers give it excellent defensive capabilities even after its ammunition stores run dry.

Deployment

       Blood Asps are being assigned to Clan Star Adder's front-line Galaxies.   Alpha Galaxy has received the majority of these new 'Mechs, while the two Keshiks, Delta Gamma and Kappa Galaxies have received only a few each.
