The Highlander Army

History of the Highlander Army

It is thought that the Highlander army got most of their technology from the Mecha Army sometime before the 2nd war. While they didn’t have a major impact in the 2nd and 3rd wars, they have become way more advanced then the previous wars they’ve been in, with new weapons such as new mechs and tanks, new (and faster) jet bombers, fighters that are capable of going faster than sound (a big improvement over the old fighters that they used to use), and very recently, the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter…

They are closely allied with the Mercenaries, and they not only pay them money, but they also supply the Mercenaries with new weaponry, and will defend the Mercenaries if they are attacked.

They have recently began using mechs more often than in the last few wars, including the Mad Cat, Cauldron Born, and the Cygnus Assult mech. They have also have developed a few anti-mech weapons, including the Marauder III heavy assult tank, and a type of heavily modified AH-64 Apache equipped with a missle launcher capable of fireing both LRMs and a variety of SRMs, as well as a small Autocannon attached to the side...
