Overview:

With its hunched shoulders and protruding head looking so much like a vulture that it earned that nickname.

Capabilities:

The Vulture serves mostly as a fire-support 'Mech. The twin racks of 20 long-range missiles can certainly hasten along the enemy's death. Should the Vulture injure an enemy at long range, it can take fate into its own hands and use its laser weaons to finish off its foe.

Deployment:

Though seen first in the Draconis Combine and shortly thereafter in the Free Rasalhague Republic, the Vulture has since appeared with all the Clans. The Ghost Bears use it with the greatest frequency, but the Smoke Jaguars also favor the 'Mech. The Vulture is somewhat less common, but by no means rare, with the other warrior Clans.
