The Basilisk Hunter Killer is a light and fast Mech Interceptor. Armed with a Python Rail Gun system the Basilisk can target very specific areas of an enemy unit with startling accuracy. Even though quite a few Mech cockpits are armored to give the pilot maximum protection, the Python Rail gun has adequate punch enough to go through a good portion of the armor that is out there and being utilized.
The main drawback is that targeting takes somewhat longer to achieve a lock so many Basilisks will have support units providing protection when possible. Pictured here is a Badger APC with a 20mm Auto Cannon mounted on top to provide over watch.
