What would happen if you took a Charger and doubled down on what made it such
a... "Unique" mech?

You Get the Ram.  Faster, tougher, even more ridiculously short damage,  and a
price tag that only makes sense in an age where XXL engines are used everywhere
else.  Who would want such an impractical mech?  The arena's of Solaris 7 of

And now that the token "oh look this can fit into the lore" speech has been

Alpha Strike design.  Which really did stem from a how can I improve the
charger.  Went from "If I use a light engine I can improve the guns" to "If I
use an XL engine I can use hardened armor..."  TSM, and the Shields for their
melee weapon abilities were kind of a given.  The real bit of finessing things
was to keep the small laser armament so it only has a short damage range.  This
in turn with its only 10 movement gives it the brawler discount of 25% of its
Point value cost.

This is not a finesse oriented design tactically.  Run at target.  Shoot for 3
if you have to.  Melee for 6 as much as possible.  Rely on heavy armor and
damage reduction from the shields to carry the day.

Tacticians may scoff, but that is only until this freight-train runs them over and brings in the full brutality of battle via a TSM punch to the face.  Mind you, not one I'd use in the field, but it would indeed be a terror on the Solaris circuit, and the fact that it does most of its damage physically would make it a favorite for many.  Interesting design.  Just keep it off the battlefield, I have enough damage to fix from idiots in wasps DFA'ing me all the time without cleaning up after this guy
