Heavy Gear Blitz – Rattlesnake unit addon

When Heavy Gear Blitz moved to its latest incarnation – the Living Rule Book – certain models and variants that had existed in previous versions were left out. Several of these are older (in the fiction) Southern gears. The models for these gears are still available and still pretty dang cool, so I’m interested in adding them back into the game.

Thankfully this is quite easy to do because:

A) I have the rules/stats for the models in the previous edition of game

B) The Living Rule Book version of HGB is actually a system which is very easy to add to and work out a sensible TV cost for the model.

The fourth of these I want to add is the Rattlesnake, still available from the DP9 store. I present it here in the format of the LRB so others can use it in their games.



Code Name: Rattlesnake
Manufacturer: Territorial Arms
Unit Type: General Purpose
Height: 4.4 meters
Weight: 6,235 kg
The Rattlesnake was the first Southern gear to serve alongside the Jager and the first of the successful ‘serpent’ series developed by TA. Developed as a general purpose gear capable of performing hit and run strike missions, the Rattlesnake cuts back on armour and fire control systems in order to field an unusually powerful rocket pack. Though a veritable antique, the gear still packs a mean punch for the price.
