       The Hunchback, known for its devastating firepower at close
   range, has a problem with heat buildup.   The recovery of Star League
   technology made this an easy problem to solve.   With barely a pause
   in production, Kali Yama Weapons Industries Inc. at Kalidasa started
   producing Hunchbacks with double heat sinks.   The Free Worlds
   League, seeing the value of the new design, increased its orders to
   20 per year.
       Besides using double heat sinks, the new HBK-5M uses the new
   Sunglow Prism-Optic Small Pulse Laser instead of the Diverse Optics
   Type 10 Small Laser.   It also envelops the autocannon shells in
   Cellular Ammunition Storage Equipment to guard against an internal
   explosion.   Unfortunately, these two changes reduce the amount of
   autocannon ammunition the Hunchback can carry.   If this proves to be
   a problem, Kali Yama could easily keep the double heat sinks but
   return to the previous weapon-and-ammunition configuration.[HARD
   RETURN]Marik units that have received the new Hunchback have given it
   rave reviews.   The first MechWarrior who runs out of autocannon
   ammunition in the middle of battle might be doing a different kind of
   raving, however.
