'The lone hunter of the Salty Ridge'
Dune Cat is a highly mobile, S rank desert ground combat specialist. It patrols over the Salt Ridge desert, a huge wasteland on the outskirts of a territory that is highly disputed between two overseas superpowers.
It's the flagship of the Salt Ridge militia, a local government that is still trying to establish itself after years of turmoil and civil war. There's plenty of fuel and ammo leftover from previous conflicts, but until Dune Cat, the militia never had a way to fight the superpowers on a scale that mattered. As the superpowers attempt to eke out their portions of this land, Dune Cat is sent to destroy their supply chains and to destroy any lightly defended military assets they might have in the region.
Dune Cat has treads under its feet modules for normal movement, but the highlight of its functionality is its ability to execute extended bursts of flight over the desert, despite having such a heavy-weight frame and armament. Its only weakness is the lifespan of its fuel packs, which are consumed quickly compared to other mechs of its weight class. It's equipped with two light artillery cannons and two missile packs. It fires them in rapid succession and then disappears for refuel, only to reappear a few hours later, unleashing more destruction.
Dune Cat does not fight fair, it does not fight for long, and it always comes and goes like a cloud of dust...
