First produced in 3070, the Uziel UZL-4S would soon see widespread use in the LAAF and AFFS, as well as the mercenaries and other allies that support them. Capabilities: Just like the UZL-2S that it was based on, the Uziel UZL-4S was designed to be a hard-hitting striker/reconnaisance unit. The weapons system was overhauled, with only the Harvester 20K SRM-6 launcher being retained, albeit with its ammuntion now CASE-protected. The arm-mounted PPCs were replaced with Defiance 250 Light PPCs, with both coupled with a PPC Capacitor; this allows the UZL-4S to match the arm-mounted firepower of the UZL-2S. Close-range firepower was further improved, with the addition of a Defiance Model XII ER Medium Laser in each side torso, while a Defiance D5S Small Pulse Laser mounted on the mech's "chin"(head) is intended to deal with enemy infantry/battlearmor. An additional double heat sink was also squeezed in, increasing the total amount of double heat sinks to twelve. In terms of protection, the armor has been replaced with ten tons of Durallex Lite-R Light Ferro-Fibrous, giving the Uziel a much thicker skin. Besides improved armor, the UZL-4S also has Guardian ECM Suite, which provides protection against enemy electronics, as well as an effective counter to the Blakists' heavy C3 network use. Deployment: As mentioned earlier, the Uziel UZL-4S is primarily deployed by the forces of the LAAF and the AFFS. Other notable forces that had deployed this battlemech model include the Wolf's Dragoons, the Kell Hounds, and surprisingly, Clan Wolf-in-Exile. Variants: UZL-4SA - this sub-variant of the UZL-4S swaps the Guardian ECM Suite for a Beagle Active Probe. UZL-4SW- a unique sub-variant only seen in Clan Wolf-in-Exile, this version replaces all of the weapons. Each arm now has an Clan-spec ER Large Laser for long-range combat, while each side torso has an Clan-spec ER Medium Laser and a Micro Pulse Laser, while a Clan-spec Streak SRM-6 launcher replaces the original SRM-6 launcher. The Guardian ECM Suite was also dropped, and replaced with an experimental Watchdog System.

Why not go for a Streak to save ammo (which would fit its missions)?

I echo IH's suggestion for a Streak rack.  It's not a bad switch for a Streak-4 instead of the larger SRM rack.
