As the weight of mechs began to increase to the point where speed was severely hampered, new solutions were sought after and research was conducted into the viability of adding more legs to improve speed without having to compromise capacity. Military commanders needed units which could operate at a high speed while still maintaining a lift capacity sufficient enough to compete with the Athlas and Wolverine classes. The end result of all of these investments and research was the Spider Tank. The Spider Tank was both swift and deadly as its namesake. Unfortunately, just like the Puma, this speed comes as a result of a high level of energy consumption.
