         Though Our Blessed Order has learned that the semi-secrecy surrounding the Caesar is really a smokescreen for successes in working out the design of the Axman, the Caesar is an impressive design in its own right.   Ostensibly the only product of the brand new Johnston Industries facility on New Syrtis, the Caesar combines the proven performance of the General Motors 280 Extralight engine with the opportunities presented by using 16 double strength heat sinks.
         Using a captured Capellan Cataphract as a prototype, designers experimented with many different weapons combinations.   The new model seen by ROM agents on New Syrtis Poland Main Model A Gauss Cannon.   This kind of massive weapon has not been seen in the Successor States since the fall of the Star League.   Cellular Ammunition Storage Equipment protects the two tons of ammo for this huge gun.
         The supporting weaponry is equally impressive, the most advanced in the Inner Sphere.   Though the Johnston High Speed Long-Range Particle Projection Cannon has yet to be battle-tested, it has proven reliable in factory trials.   Four Sutel Precision Line Medium Pulse Lasers provide additional firepower, front and rear.
         Barring system problems that could be expected with a new design, the Caesar is expected to be a worthy opponent for any 'Mech in the Inner Sphere.


     The CES-4D model was devloped in the Capellan March in 3064 to replace the increeasingly harder to produce Gauss Rifle (due to the fall of Talon/Werke to Loyalist forces) with the Federated Suns's new Rotary Autocannon technology.
     The Poland Main Model A Gauss Rifle was removed and replaced with a 80mm NAIS 2b Rotary Autocannon. Also added was a Kallon C3 Slave unit to aid in the intergration of the mech into the unit, and three and a half tons more armour was added to add to the survivability of the mech.


The CES-4D was deployed during the war with a variety of RCTs and free Regiments throughout the Capellan March. After the Civil War, the entire AFFS has been introduced to the varient, and it has become popular
