Art by Matt Plog ( mattPLOG ) . This is a classic style technical readout drawing of Strider's Strikers custom Mech, the 70-ton Infighter. Matt Plog is a well-known artist in the BattleTech field. We were lucky enough to have the guy who created some of the coolest tech readout drawings actually work on some projects for our site. He has a lot of talent for portraying Mechs the way they ought to be - fluid enough to be moving in combat while at the same time seeming heavy and massively powerful.

Ryan Allen's Infighter Mech is a custom design created jointly by his longtime friend Rocky Potts and doctor of physics Byron Jones. The Mech sports a prototype weapon on its shoulder which is called the ThunderClap 20. Built with infrasonic technology, the ThunderClap is intended for close combat. It damages its foes' internal systems by shaking mechanisms apart with concussive vibrations. The Infighter is also armed with a mace and several lasers. Its myomer musculature is that of the triple strength variant, providing it with extra power when the Mech overheats from excessive use of its lasers.
