Victor VTR-9S is a Assault-class 'Mech in Battletech.
The Victor 9S has even less armor than the 9B standard Victor, but upgrades its SRM-4 to an SRM-6. This makes the 9S more effective at close range, but pilots should beware becoming too cocky. With even less armor than the standard 9B, the Victor 9S is quite vulnerable.
The glass cannon of the Assault Mechs and one of the very few where the default load out is actually really good. With full damage upgraded weapons,Victor can deal a frightening 262 damage to an enemy's rear. A good "Flanker" or "Striker" Mechwarrior and +2 or 3 hit defense Gyro will make this Mech' quite viable with proper planning,positioning and Lance setup.
- The Victor 9S trades some of its already subpar armor to mount more weaponry. It's terrifying for enemy forces to see this 'Mech rocketing over a hill to unleash its considerable firepower, but it also needs to really worry about any return fire.
