The Ancient is one of the original Trooper test chassis, passed down the Summers family since it was captured in a raid over a century ago. Before coming into the hands of the Summers family, the ’Mech had been stolen from the Free Worlds League by the Capellans, then from the Capellans by Federated Suns forces, then sold off due to the poor reputation the Trooper had from its many development problems.

Unlike the standard Trooper or Flea, The Ancient is a unique example of the chassis, retaining the Martell Large Laser, but removing the other weapons in favor of a single Martell Medium Laser and additional armor. The Summers family have tinkered with The Ancient for over a century, replacing the original prototype communications and targeting equipment with systems salvaged from a Kurita Panther, and cobbling together a newer armor suite of Durallex light plating that is 50% more effective than the original armor suite of the Trooper.
