Grumman Harrelson 'Gilded Lobster'

The Gilded Lobster was the successor of the Momma Lobster. It added a heavy faceplate to block enemy gunfire. A sort of telescope system was installed to allow the pilot to see through it. By using the same type of lenses as magnifying glasses, the British Engineers were able to cut down on the necessary size of the viewport while maintiaing visual range. However, it still had a limited field of vision. In fact, if you could get closer than 10 yards, it could not see you. In addition to the faceplate, the joints and leg strength were improved.
