Weighing 85 tons the PRC-7R was developed by ComStar in early 3061 in a continuing effort to replace losses suffered on Tukayyid against the Clans and the additional losses of 3058 after the Word of Blake seized control of Terra.
Originally intended to mount a pair of Ultra AC5s when the NAIS unveiled the Rotary Autocannon, Precentor Martial Steiner-Davion arranged a significant number of the weapon system to be turned over to ComStar and the design was refitted with this new weapon. After a minor redesign to accommodate this new weapon the first PRC-7R walked off the production line in 3064.
In addition to the twin RAC5s the Precentor mounts a pair of ER Medium Lasers in each arm and a MRM 10 in the chest.
The Precentor is a brutal mid range combatant and can reach speeds of 64.8 kph while still mounting an impressive 14 tons of armour in addition to jump jets giving it speed, manoeuvrability and survivability, a combination almost unheard of in an assault ‘Mech.
The model contains 20 parts and stands approximatly 50mm tall when built. Includes parts to create both the production PRC-7R version and the PRC-7X prototype variant.
Original design by Dorian Sherratt & Helen Troy.
