Overview:

   The combat data we gathered from the Bull showed while it performed admerabley it still became overwelmed when faced with larger oponents. The need for a hevier partner machine with a similar weapons profile.   With the design teams   vacation extended   the two youg upstarts had their work cut out for them again. They choose the chassis of the patton, but designed the turret from the ground up in 3 weeks time. A week after that a working prototype was in working order and undergoing trials with the taurian armored corps.   Over all the 2 people who stayed with out vacation earned a raise and a bounus in pay.

 

Capabilities:

     After the trials were completed the main complaint was the protection level of the tank. The armor type was changed to ferro-fibrous thus somewhat off setting the lack of protection for such a heavy machine. The main guns selected were Armstrong class B cluster guns produced in   taurian space. Crew effectiveness was a chief concern so we looked at the layout of the turret and chassis which influenced the design of the turret.   The majority of the weapons were the same as the BMT-117, but to compensate   for the lack of case the ammo feeds from the rear of the turret and is seperated from the crew by a 14 inch thick door made of standard armor plate. This both alows the crew to correct jams in needed or load the main guns if the feeds are damaged.

   The design team tried to give some commonality of parts with the targeting and comm systems being the same used   in the Bull. Repair and basic preventive maintenance in the field were addressed with 3 tool kits provided as standard.

Deployment

Though   deployed in fewer numbers the rough figure for service in the taurian armored corps is about 2 for every Bull BMT-117 in service.

Armament:1 Diverse Optics Sunbeam ER Large Laser1 Voelkers 200 Machine Gun1 Pinard Reaper Streak SRM 2Manufacturer:    American Arms   Location:    Quatre BelleCommunications System:    CommunicatorTargeting & Tracking System: FireScan with IndirecTrack 

Overview:

     Feeling we had failed to provide our Taurian customer with cost effective tanks   Work began on a small through away tank that while cheap could like the scorpion be deployed in mass to overwhelm a stronger enemy. To acheive that end we hesitantly used a fusion reactor as the power plant. Normally when we design a vehicle for the Taurians we use a basic internal combustion engine, but in order to design a cheap and small tank with as much as possible we had to make that choice.

     The chance to build such a machine came at a time when the taurians were looking for a tank that could function in the harsh desert climate of new ganymede. Thought the world is only sparsely populated its valuable mineral ore deposits make a military garrison almost a must.   The taurian desert warfare training facilities are on the planet as well.

Capabilities:

The design had to with stand the harsh desert enviorment   of New Ganymede. We had to have as few spots were sand could get in or collect were moving parts were. The tank needed an advantage in combat aside from weapons armor so the tank is low to the ground providing a even smaller target then the tried and true scorpion. Efforts were made to make the weapons housings sand proof but were only completely successful in protecting the main gun.
That limitation as it were made little difference during trials with the tank showed the machine could lie in wait covered in sand. The tank was dubbed the sand cat.

 

Battle History:

   During trials on new Ganymede a total of 8 prototypes while testing in wargame conditions became barried in a sand dune. They found they could move in and out of the sand hill with ease and no damage to the tanks or their main guns. They then advanced to the entrance of a narrow pass with large dunes near the exit. Then backed into the dunes and waited to ambush the enemy. After 2 days of waiting the time came to attack. The tanks performed rather well as many fled from the ambush only to get stuck attempting to go over the dunes only to sink in the sand due to their weight.

 

Deployment

Deployment is rather high with total ordered at 200. Plus 50 for training.

Bit expensive for a Scorp replacement, but significantly more useful - decent

If you swap the LL & extra HS for a PPC (keeping it level 1, increasing the punch AND keeping the price the same) I'd even say excellent!

10/10/2010 5  Thunder
Well this does give a bit of an upgrade compared to a scorpion. Which leads to start up costs vs ongoing expenses. This is a better unit in the long run so long as you can avoid having it broken into itty bitty bits.

Hmm. Costs more than twice as much as a Scorpion but doesn't offer significantly more performance.

Armament:1 Pinard Reaper Streak SRM 21 Guardian ECMManufacturer:    Taurus Territorial Industries, American Arms   Location:    Sterope, Quatre BelleCommunications System:    CommunicatorTargeting & Tracking System: FireScan with IndirecTrack 

Overview:

American arms is how you say worn out after having to rebuild, and effectively start nearly over on quatre belle after the word of blake all but destroyed the company. A year of constant development and building took its tole on our design staff, so we gave them a one month paid vacation.   However we still needed a new product to fill out the space in the vehicle production wing, with the design staff on vacation we looked to existing designs that were in use by the taurians.

After a week of looking we settled on the Mauliter hover APC. The design simple, reliable , and cheap to produce. Then the task of how to improve or change its role, but what to change was the puzzle. Fortunately   2 of the vehicle department design team members declined the vacation. They were new hires and young , they had some thing to prove. They went to work tinkering and after 2 days came up with a workable idea. The next day we contacted Taurus Territorial Industries who produce the maultier to negotiate a joint production of the model we designed. They agreed to a 50/50 split of profits.

Capabilities:

   The Maultier role was changed from a fast APC to a fast armored scout. The Maultier no sports 4 tons of       ferro-fibrous   and a ECM suite. The infantry bay was removed to allow for a more durable scout and to make room for the ECM suite.   The increased armor allows the vehicle to take a hit and keep going while the streak SRM provides accurate close range firepower if and when the Maultier gets in   trouble it cant out run.

Deployment

The simple design allows for a great many to be produced. Taurus Territorial Industries and our own lines for the machine are about the same. Production is roughly 70 per week. Deployment of the vehicle has not been difficult as many are thrown in to units with the Maultier APC and several armored units

Specializing in Mech designes and company is family owned also lisencing existing designes. Started out as a small arms designer company in2012 and eventually went into mech desingn. Has switched names from Hawkeye hi to origianal name of American Arms Incorparated. 
The company is in need of contracts and will accept any designs our competitor's will offer(hint,Himt)!
Please reply by listing design and company.

Our main factory is located in what was left of the Cheyane mountain base, and though it was decyaed exstensively after it was abandend in the 22nd century , we were able to retool the facility to produce mechs.
Our enginers made thebase larger by going deeper under groud wich allowed us to make research labs testing ranges and factory. All concealed in a moutain and protected from nuclear weapons. Our methods of aquiring designs is not without flaws we steal from under clan noses when ever possible and then modify or redesign what we took. This istalation is new for us only just in 3060 had we finished working on the the instalation that started in 3057. We have latley been producing mechs for only House Liao since they have given us the most creative freedom. We have swithched gears a little we have started designing mechs for Solaris arenas.
We sometimes crate mechs for the budget market though they tend to be pet projects.
Lately we have been under attack by an unkown force and have instaled artilary pieaces around the facility and developed a mech to work in conjunction with the deffences.

Ac/2? Kind of an odd weapon for a long range weapon.

I know this is a custom, real-world transverse, but I think it would be a better idea (if in a tournament game) to replace the AC/2 for an LRM 10 with at least a ton of ammo.

Primary Factory: Terra
Communications System: Sony MST-15
Targeting and Tracking System: C-Apple Churchill with Special Targeting Computer

Overview:
Show Room Demo:
In keeping with our companies drive for 
inovation and Devotion we proudly unveill our latest retrofit of the 
Trebuchet witch has given us even more exsperiance in reverse 
enginering Clan weapons tech for our use and new advances.
The first 
of our second line of reverse enginered weapon systems is the Clan 
ER PPC and LRM20 witch took many years of trial and error. The 
trebuchet now has more bite then ever and don't be thinking that the 
mech will be steching your pocket books it's under 7,000,000 
C-bills. The low cost is the result of using mostly inner sphere 
tech in the design but with a few clan weapon systems. It's so cheap 
in fact that production has already started and has produced 100 of 
the mech already to go.

Capabilities:
The Trebuchet is a fire support mech that untill now lacked 
sufficient bite to contend with larger opponents that is why we 
decided to use our two newest prototype renginerd clan weapons the ER 
PPC and LRM 20 to boost the mechs surrviavablity in combat and enough 
LRM reloads to keep the mech in battle fore more then enough time 
before needing to resupply. The ER PPC provides the Trebuchet with 
what it never had a true mech killer gun and coupled with a targeting 
computer could prove to be very deadly. The Trebuchet has back up 
weapons the classic pair of medium lasers in the left arm and a ER 
small laser in the head provide good short range firepower. The 
trebuchet is coverd in Ferro-fibrous armor giveng the mech the 
maximum possible armor it could carry. The Trebuchet can now safely 
say I can stand up to the big guys on the battlefield.

Deployment:

First, mixed tech is lvl 3 but this is not that important.
I am unsure if I like this heavier Trebuchet (the original one was 50 tons). It has more direct firepower, less indirect firepower and less mobility.
The lack of the usual twin racks makes this design something new (and a nice 'Mech although a bit slow) but not a Trebuchet.

Primary Factory: Terra
Communications System: Ceres Metals Model 666
Targeting and Tracking System: Apple Churchill 2000 with Multi-Trac II

Overview:
Shengli Arms needed help with prodction of a Lao Hu variant due 
to lack of room to keep up with orders being placed by House Liao. 
Shengli while a competitor we agreed to manufacture the mech with 
permission to improve the Lao Hu and American Arms Inc. did so with 
this varriant. Shengli Promissed 50% of proffits of the improved 
variant and Shengli also generasly supplied the communications and 
targeting systems. House Liao seemed happy with the Mech and orders 
are pouring in despite the high price.

Capabilities:
This variant was designed to be successfull at all ranges and is 
very ggod at it's intended role. The ER PPC provides heavy long range 
fire power and supported by an LRM 10 and a ER LARGE laser. A ER 
Medium laser and two medium lasers provide medium to close ranges. 
Coolant pods are equiped to improve heat management and as a added 
gift all AH Lao Hu an Artimis IVC FCS for improved LRM 10 accuracy. 
We upped the tonnage to 100T though a radical step it allowed for the 
mech to carry the maximum armor the chass could hold. The mech is 
slower but it works for it's intended role of an assault mech.

Deployment:
Has yet to be put into offical combat but skrimishes with with 
mercinaries shows it performs well with some heat issues that are 
manageable if the coolant pods are used sparingly the mech can 
perform very well.

Battle History:
My father Donald Sommer tested the mech against an Templar and he 
noted that wille he was slower he had the advantge of being more 
manuverable in combat. It gave the the pilot of the Templar wich was 
Jasek-Kelswa-Steiner leader of the Stormhammers a run for his money. 
He comented that his mech was over heating very fast and that he 
could not susstain the same rate of fire. Jasek exspresed intrest in 
purchasing 2 AS Lao Hu for him and Alexia Wolf.
My father also was 
amazed at how easlly he dissabled the templar with little 
understanding of what tactics to use.

Mr. Ghost Bear 0 6/24/2006  

This is definately a mean bombardment mech. It lacks enough back up weapons for my taste, but A) It should have lancemates for that, and B) the Thunderhawk, the most feared mech of a similar role to your mech has similar problems, so good job.

Ice Hellion 0 5/31/2006 6/6/2006

More firepower, more protection (with the CASE), more costly and a bit heavier than the Lao Hu.
It is hard to decide which one to use but your strange choices for secondary weapons (SSRM-2, LRM-5 and MG) all of them with plenty ammo and the somehow lesser caliber of most of your weapons would mean that you would have to fight more to take the same opponent down. This is why I would prefer the original Lao Hu.
Interesting approach.

* Update *
It seems you are a bit lighter than you should be.
Nice change in the weapons but I dislike the lvl 3 approach (although this is just a personal thing).
Nice setting of weapons.

Overview:

Based on the Harconen l design while striving to creat a cost effective mech. Though the result was a monster comparable to most assault class mechs. We took carfull time with this behemoth over 3 years before the first two harconens were in production. This was done so too alow for hype to build up and alow for a sizable price increase.

I like the raw firepower of its design and its capacity to still annoy people at longer ranges.
I would drop one Heat Sink (not needed) to give it the missing ton of ammo for the LRM-15.

An interesting concept.

Design Updated on 5/28/2008 6:51:57 PM

5/29/2008  Prime
Indeed. At ranges over 15 it has only 3 LRM 5's, and at 3/5 movement, it's not closing the distance very quickly. A stock 3025 Vindicator that plays a good game of keepaway could challenge this mech 1 on 1. (And lose, but still... a 45 tonner shouldn't even be a challenge.)

Your series' dedication to autocannon technology is cool, but remember that relying ONLY on autocannons is a good way to get outgunned. Mixing an autocannon or gauss rifle with another system like an LRM or a PPC provides more firepower, decent heat management, and good ranged response... all for about the same weight and space.

EDIT - LRM15 with Artemis is a good change. I'd suggest dumping the ER Small and a half ton of armor (it's only providing you 3 points anyway) and bumping up the LRM ammo.

5/28/2008  Prince of Darkness
Interesting, but way too short-ranged. The LRM 5's can only really provide spread damage, and the SPL/ER SL serve little purpose. Some LRM 15 would b

Manufacturer: Unknown
Primary Factory: Terra
Communications System: Datacom 26
Targeting and Tracking System: GPT Multi-Track with Multi-Trac II

Overview:
This Mech was designed to be used in the arenas of Solaris and to 
beet the competitian. The Design team at American Arms Inc. was 
looking at new mechs hitting Solaris that were doing reasonably well 
in matches. We looked at the New Gladiater and the Jack hammer for 
insperation and seleceted the main weapon of the Jackhammer as a 
starting point. The executives wanted this to be a mech to be sold 
only to solaris jocks so we were set on a Brawler type chassis and 
set out to build the mech, but while in develope ment the team had 
completly forgotten to name their creation so they desided to name it 
the Trigun after the mechs 3 main guns. The Trigun is made 
specificaly for arena fightingand was to have been given to a few 
liao and Steiner solaris pilots who were in good standings.The Mech is very exspensive but it's performances speak for its self.

Capabilities:
The trigun was intended for Arena firghting and has the wapons to 
prove it with more then enough amo two RAC/5 and a Light AC/2 provide 
the most fire power and wtih a multi-track ll targating computer the 
Trigun should not have any difficulty finding the enemy target. 4 ER 
Medium lasers and a medium laser provide backup deffence if the RAC 
cannons jamm. Two jumpjets provide emergency manunverablility and 
with a greate heat curv the trigun will hardley over heat due to the 
fact that almost all heat is dissplaced by the Double heatsinks.

Deployment:
Has been sold to a few Solaris jocks Loyal to House Liao and 
Steiner and one independent.

Battle History:
from the arena the Trigun performs well against all oppoments 
with some troublre with the Atlas and Awsome mechs. The RAC/5 has 
some tendency to jam but the light ac.2 Covers the problem as well as 
the 4 ER medim lasers.

Known Variants:
None

I am not really a fan of lvl 3 and I think that this monster could be easily converted to lvl 2.
With 17.5 tons of armor, 3 JJ, 15 DHS, 2 RAC/5, 6 Medium Lasers, 2 CASE (in the CT, there is no use for it), one GECM, it should really rip its opponents (although it would then miss the third gun).

Mr. Ghost Bear 0 6/23/2006  

2 jump? That's Useless. I'd drop the jump jets, the Light AC, the CT CASE, and the multi-track system (not too useful while dueling), replace your lasers with standard mediums so they can be fired with the rotaries, and add a TC, a streak 4, and an ER small laser.

Gauntlet 3 6/23/2006  

Hmm, a new take on my trusty Jackhammer pic. Not a big fan of level 3 tech, but this seems to be okay. Not too shabby!

Overview:

The harconen was a atempt to make a flexable yet combat effective lance support unit. We looked at most support mechs but they all had the primary doctrine of longrange mech and infantry support offten supstiuting artilary or mobile missle systems in this role. The harconen was the   logical blend of both short and longrange firepower and able hold its own in a lance.

Capabilities:

The primary weapon is a rotary autocannon 5 supported by SRM4s and two medium lasers round out the Harconen's armarment. The harconen is quite slow but the amount of firepower it can bring to bear is astonishing. This comes at a cost however it is heavly ammunition dependent there fore it can;t   stray to far from supplies, other then that it is equiped with a standard fusion reactor ensuring   survival and is covered by 12.5 tons of ferro-fibrous armor making the harconen capable of withstanding a decent amount of punishment.

All those missiles and not a hint of Artemis? Odd. But it's certainly not got ammo shortage problems. Good design.

5/28/2008  Ice Hellion
A Lance Support 'Mech? For me this is a brawler designed to fight from middle ranges on.
It might lack a bit of mobility but in open grounds, it should be able to do its job quite well.

Nice job.

Overview:
The Dimond Sharks wealth turned out to be both a blessing and a 
Curse because it sparked envy among the clans witch caused some 
fighting among the clans witch alowed American arms spies to do 
their work witch gave us the Ha Otoko Battlemech. The Techs right 
away said lets remove the Two LRM 10s and add some lasers to the mix 
and alow for a better defence of the mech if faced with opponents to 
large to be taken with Missles alone. The tonnage incrase was to 
acomadate weapons and armor and the incrase has overall giving the 
mech a higher survival probablity in combat. I disliked thr mech 
namly because it was only missles and though I liked the apearance it 
did little to stem my reluctance to give funds to the project , but 
my personal tech advisor convinced me otherwise to put the funds into 
the project. I agreed but my tech had to agree to the following term 
he must make it sell at least 100 of this mech to our primary 
customer House Liao. Saddly my friend and tech died in a transport 
accident on his way to the factory and I made it my mission to see 
that the mech sold more then 100. The mech is to go into production 
as fast as possible and take up what production areas we have left 
even if we have to reconfigure the machines to produce the mech we 
will make a record production of a mech for this company and even if 
it Bankrupts us in the process.

Capabilities:
The Ha Otoko now has the cappablity to attack at nearly all 
ranges with all bases coverd with the new weapon systems the new mech 
still perform in it's intended role of fire support but with the 
cappacitty to defend itself when needed. It can easly attack at short 
to long range.

Deployment:
House Liao was amazingly estatic about our new mech and is 
willing to buy 250 of the new mech from us and is to deployed in 
front line lances that contain the Lao Hu mech and Men Shen 
battlemechs.

Battle History:
The Ha Otoko seemed to work well when grouped with the Men Shen 
fireing a full missle salvo and then the Men Shen fininshig the the 
target of with a alpha strike.

Oversinked? I do not agree with that one.
I do wonder however about two things: this thing getting within the Liao space (with a Light engine in it?)? And also its use, the fluff of the Ha Otoko says that it could easily become an Inner Sphere design with.
You are also missing CASE to protect your pilot.
Apart from that, the weapons remind me of a bigger Dervish (without the jumping capacity) or an Archer. And this is another problem: for one Ha Otoko, I can get two Archers meaning the same number of Lasers but twice the missiles plus two targets. Guess what my choice would be?

Mr. Ghost Bear 0 7/3/2006  

While you say the mech is mixed tech, I can't see any Clan components, and explaining (or mentioning) the switch to IS weapons may come in handy. The mech itself is well designed, if slightly oversinked, so good job overall.

   1 Diverse Optics ER Medium Laser
   1 Diverse Optics Small X-Pulse Laser

Manufacturer: American Arms incorparated
   Primary Factory: Terra
Communications System: Army Comm. Class 5
Targeting and Tracking System: Apple Churchill 2000

Overview:
       After seeing battle footage of the Clone battlemech it was 
   evident it needed a command version to command the bulk of the the 
   city defence clones. Designers decided to make a commamd version to 
   improve the existing clone mechs effectiveness on the battlefield. 
   Production has been slow because our production space in  the moutain 
   is small due to our construction crews being slowed down by mineral 
   deposites that could be valuable to the company and thus creating a 
   production deficet.

Capabilities:
       The Clone Commander is a heavy mech though it is essentially a 
   much larger towering version of the Clone mech. Saddly to say no jump 
   jets again but its still a good heavy hitter and despite its size it 
   still retains its speed to a degree.
Their is one thing that was 
   included and that was an emphisis on medium to long range firepower 
   to compentsate for the clones lack of long range punch that is why a 
   ppc is included and a LRM 10 is equiped into the design. Heat is an 
   issue but a coolant pod is included to compensate for the problem. 
   The main liability is the XL engine that is suceptable to a lucky 
   hit. The Clone Commander is wraped in 13tons of standard armor and a 
   endo-steel chassis gives the machine some lasting time in combat.

Deployment:
       Deployement is to the main customers of the Clone battlemech 
   though with small numbers do production difficulties.

Battle History:
       it has distingwished its self in leading the clone battle mech in 
   combat on many occasion against heavly armed bandits.

I do wonder about this use of so much advanced tech on this 'Mech (I would agree with the Command Console but that is all).
The lack of jump jets is the main problem on this 'Mech that could compete with the Griffin.

Fluff, fluff, fluff. Where is it?

Overview:

THis is Our greatest leap the LAM type mech. We solved one of the LAM's greatist problems the vulnerability of the conversion mechanisms which we are happy to say are all internal and not visable from the outside, but a sereis of access panels alow for ease of matinence on such systems. Though exspensive the caoability of such a machine far out weighs the cost.

Capabilities:

The mech is very streamlined and futureistic its main weapon is the   ER large Laser and is supplemented by the sword carried on the left wrist of the mechand is retractable. A modest speed alowing for closing in on an oppent and jump jets add to the mechs already impresive manuverability. When other weapons are needed 2 ER medium lasers and a small pulse laser   complete the impresive aresnal. The flag is powerd by a light fusion engine and is protected by 10 tons of ferro-fibrous armor. The Flag is a rapid response unit able to hold the line until renforcements can arrive. Its capable of aircombat in both fighter and mech modes.

A ER large laser and autocannon version are in developement

An interesting idea: a mix between long range lasers and short range weapons.
I think that right now this LAM is split in two. You did not decide where to go. In a normal 'Mech, this would not be a problem but on a specialised 'Mech like a LAM, it is.
And a LAM with a sword? Why not? It is a lot in the anime spirit but this could be interesting.

Design Updated on 5/28/2008 622 PM

5/28/2008  Prime
What's imagination got to do with it? I IMAGINE that if you spent another half ton on a jump jet that you'd get 3 more hexes of jump in LAM mode.

What I don't understand is the machine gun. An LAM doesn't typically need an anti-infantry weapon. Swap it for a small laser, and you can lose the CASE too.

The sword is a rather unique choice for an LAM as well. Most of them concentrate on not getting close enough to get hurt, but this one seems to be a short range fighter. Odd.

5/29/2008  Tigershark
Thanks ice hellion at least someone understands my concept at least a little bit.

Mission tactic:
The main tactic is to swoop down and cut an opposing mech's head off or at least an arm

5/28/2008  Prince of Darkness
LAM's are supposed to be fast attack vehicles. This goes against it. The Large Pulse laser, small laser, machine gun, and ESPECIALLY the sword serve no purpose. And having a speed of 5/8/4 really detracts from it's ability as a LAM- you lose 3 hexes of a jump; so why did you sacrifice it?

Manufacturer: American Arms Incorparated
   Primary Factory: Terra
Communications System: Unknown with Guardian ECM Suite
Targeting and Tracking System: Apple Churchill 2000 with TAG

Overview:
       Terra Weapons report:
The Royal Guard was in need of 
   improvements as evident when comparing to mechs of simialar 
   functions. thus this improved model was created to supplement the 
   orignal. The new Royal guard while more exspensive is more effective 
   in an urban enviorment.

Capabilities:
       The new modle is more capable then the prmary modle at medium 
   range and is able to bring more firepower at medium range thanks to a 
   PPC and anti-infantry with a sperryBrownig machine gun instaled. 
   Pilot protection has been inproved thanks to Case being included in 
   the design.

Deployment:
       The mech is to be only used by American Arms Incorparated and is 
   not in the market for any buyers and is deployed around the perimater 
   of the complex. This mech is in large numbers so to deter any attack.

Battle History:
       This Royal Guard performes well at  its intended task. It is 
   evident it needs more longrange weapons.

Known Variants:
       on drawing board the reamoval of the beagle active probe for a

Blue Lord 0 1/29/2007  

Apart from the problems noted below it is a much better design than the origonal. The only change i would make would be to drop half a ton of the machine gun ammo to add another jump jet. You'd have to remove the left hand acuator though. Also move SSRM 4 into the left torso so you don't have to worry about an ammo explosion. Once again a much better design.

Ice Hellion 0 1/7/2007  

The selection of weapons is in par with most lvl 1 55 tons 'Mechs and its versatility is a good thing.
My problem is more on how to make the TSM work. I guess it is a combo of shutting down some heat sinks, firing all weapons in range and jumping but I also guess that in the heat of battle, it will be hard to remember which one.
Nice job.

Mr. Ghost Bear 0 1/1/2007  

A couple things:

Fluff has a BAP but the stats show an ECM.
How did AAI acquire TSM?
4/6/3 is awfully slow for a 55 tonner, so how will it survive?
While the weapons variety is impressive, there is very little actual firepower. Why will this be used over a variety of all-around superior level 1 mechs?

Overview:
Terra weapons and bussiness report:
There have been strange 
reports of mechs of an new design guarding American Arms 
Incorparated's entrances and the perimater of the facility and it 
seems to aimed at short range combat and that would make sences since 
the company has been attacked by an unkown group and as a result this 
mech seems to have been created to gaurd the facility. The mechs 
appearance seems to be a smaller Ha Otoko but armed with two swords 
and from the looks an aray of short range weaponry. The mech is 
painted in all black warrior look in a atempt to intimadate the 
enemy. From the CEO we have learned that the mech uses only standard 
equipment though that was all we could confirm from him at the time 
and he refused to dissclose anymore information on the matter and 
neither did he commnet on the instalation of artilariy in the sides 
of the facility.

Capabilities:
The capablities were published on the mech but that was it. The 
mech is armed with a tag to opperate as a spotter for the deffences 
surrounding the mountain complex and beagle active probe to inform 
the faciliy of incoming targets. The Royal Guard is intended to focus 
on close quarters combat so a large pulse laser and two swords 
provide deadly options and two ER small lasers and TWO ER Medium 
lasers provide grate medium firepower and an streake SRM4 provides 
short fire support and a LRM 5 provides some long range reach. The 
mech is not made to be speedy so the lack of speed is notable for its 
role of guard duty.

Deployment:
The mech is to be only used by American Arms Incorparated and is 
not in the market for any buyers and is deployed around the perimater 
of the complex.

Battle History:
The Royal Guard performes well at night mainly do to it's black 
color scheme. It is evident it needs more longrange weapons.

Ice Hellion 0 8/1/2006  

An interesting approach to an important problem: keep our companies safe of intruders.
The problem here is that it has two swords (which it cannot use in one turn) and is rather slow as sometimes being able to go after the opponent is as important (although the TAG will partly solve that problem).
Nice job.

Blue Lord 0 7/27/2006  

It can barely out run an urbanmech, it mounts 2 swords when you can only use one, and longe range firepower is laughable. Still it's a good city brawler. I would loose a sword and strip out the LRM 5 to upgrade the egine to 4/6 and trade the large pulse laser for a standard ppc thus giving you descent medium range firepower.

Overview:
       The Clone battle mech was designed to be the perfect city 
   defender. The Clone was to work in groups of Seven or more. american 
   arms was despirate for this mech to sell but as luck would have it 
   House Davion was intersested in the clone battlemech mainly becaus of 
   steiners tactic of destroying whole cities by some of their more 
   ruthless commanders. The design team themselves didn't think that the 
   mech would even sell at all, but they got a lucky break when buyers 
   just kept showing up we knew we had done something right. We had to 
   retool the area that had produced our Royal Guard defence mech just 
   to keep up with the orders for over 1,000 in 6 months whell this is 
   to be exspected as the mech is perform best when working in groups of 
   the same mech. Many of the Designers often brag that they created a 
   clone army. 

Capabilities:
       The Clone is optimized for City fighting with most of its weapons 
   being medium to close range weapons. It has two SRM4 launchers whith 
   four tons of amo plenty in extended combat. Heat is not an issue 
   whith most of the excess heat being displaced during weapons fire. 
   Small pilse lasers and standard medium laser providing plenty of 
   close range punch. The large laser provides most of the firepower and the machine gun provides some  anti-infantry ability. Though the lack of jump jets is troublesome we hoped the cheap cost and weapons loadout would leed to great  sales.

Deployment:
       The Clone has seen deployment with House steiner house Davion And

MECHTECH 0 6/11/2007 6/11/2007

I think Ice Hellion is wright do way with mg and ammo and 2 tons of srm 4 ammo thats 3 tons. That gives you jump 5 and .5 tons do as you see fit

Ice Hellion 0 1/7/2007  

"Steiner tactic of destroying whole cities by some of their more ruthless commanders" : where does that come from?
"the orders for over 1,000 in 6 months" : I doubt that any company would be able to reach this target.

Now to the 'Mech, it is not bad but it is lacking a good weapon in cities: jump jets.
Also 4 tons of ammo for the SRM-4 might be a bit too much. I would drop them and use the weight for Streak SRM-4.
If you have Small Pulse Lasers, you do not need Machine Gun but you might use the weight to put a much needed Beagle Active Probe.

Overview:

The harconen l while succesfull it lacked staying power and speed so we decied to design a operational partner to the Harconen by producing the harconen ll.

Capabilities:

Though not as powerful as the first in the series it certanly is faster and more agile. The only drawback being the XL powerplant. To protect the delicate engine the machine is coverd in 8.00 tons of ferro fibrous armro more then enough for the speedy mech. The primary amrament is the LBX autocannon 5 supported by 2 ER medium laser and a small pulse laser.

I can only follow what Ice Hellion and Prime have stated- it is really just an overpriced blah.

I see it with the autocannon motif as related to the Harconen I, but Ice has a point. As designed, this is a very expensive mech with little firepower. A 2750 Sentinel does pretty much the same job (with a bit less speed and armor), weighs 10 tons less, and is less than 1/3 the price in c-Bills.

EDIT - I see you've dropped it 10 tons, which was proably a good move costwise, since it lets you use a smaller engine. (An XL engine is 4 times the price of a regular engine and is most of the cost of the mech.)

One note on armor... you're sitting at 8 tons of ferro fibrous. That last half ton is only worth 3 points because the mech maxxes out at 137 points. You could save a half ton by removing 3 points of armor, which is worth another jump jet. ALTERNATELY, you could use Endo Steel instead of Ferro Fibrous, which would force you to add a half ton of armor to stay at maximum, but since you'd save 2 tons on the internal structure weight, you'd come out ahead... which gets you lots more jump jets, or perhaps another ER Medium Laser.

Ice hellion unfoutunatly if i did what you ask the name would not fit the mech so sorry.

5/28/2008  Ice Hellion
It is fast but not mobile and I find it a bit undergunned.
I would drop all its weapons for a PPC, 2 Medium Lasers, another Heat Sink and 7 Jump Jets.
This way you would have firepower at a decent range and mobility.

CE-02 Recon Clone

Chassis: Endo Steel
Power Plant: GM 210 Light
Cruising Speed: 64.5
Maximum Speed: 96.75
Jump Jets: none
   Jump Capacity: none
Armor: Standard 
Armament:
   1 ER PPC w/ Capacitor
   1 Diverse Optics Type 18 Medium Laser
   1 Diverse Optics ER Small Laser
   1 Diverse Optics Type 20 Small Laser
Manufacturer: Unknown
   Primary Factory: Terra
Communications System: Army Comm. Class 5 with Guardian ECM Suite
Targeting and Tracking System: Apple Churchill 2000 with TAG

Overview:
       Intended work with the Clone designers set out to make a recon 
   version of the Clone but lighter and faster. Though in early 
   developement was slowed due to many malfunctions and thus killing 2 
   of our test pilots in the process. This coupled with the loss of the 
   prototype prevented it being released with the Clone Commander. A 
   test pilot figured out our problem which was a  power cable rupturing 
   that connected the PPC to the Left Torso and this was corrected with 
   better protecting the wire from the heat produced during operation. 
   Eventualy  production went under way with 500 being built half of the 
   number the clone produced

Capabilities:
       This clone is essentially a much smaller Clone mech but with a 
   supped up electronics package added and TAG to call in artilary 
   support in. The Recon Clone is relativly the same cost as the Clone 
   but in a 35 ton package. The ECM Suite alows a stealthy aproach to 
   the target then raining artilary with the tag system. A ER PPC 
   w/capaciter alows sustianed fire without the short recharge time and 
   an asortment of medium and small lasers for support.

Deployment:
       Has been purchased in small numbers by those  Who have purchased 
   the clone and Colone commander mechs. Though it has been produced in 
   higher numbers then the Clone Commander.

I do think that this 'Mech has some potential, enough even to rival the Tessen but your use of lvl 3 is wasting it.
You could make a better 'Mech without using this advanced technology.
Nice job.

Overview:
       My brother am fanatic war historian always  took long trips 
   thruoghout the Inner sphere hoping to find old battle mechs and data 
   cores of old bombed out or abandoned factories. Then my brother came 
   to me with a core that contained plans of a very old light mech he 
   thought I would be interested in and a few others to boot. Then me 
   and my techs took a look and decided to chose to manufacture the 
   vertualy exstinct Falcon battle mech ,but not without using advanced 
   technology to rebuild the onece proud mech. Our techs argued and 
   argued on the weapons configurations until finally decideding on a 
   plethora of lasers coupled with a Holy LRM5 missle rack. The Falcon 
   looks to fill a role similar to the popular Wolfhound but more 
   exspensive.

Capabilities:
       The falcon is ment to destroy light to medium opponets and 
   possibly damage larger opponents. the Falcon can run hot and that is 
   whay alternating laser fire and the LRM rack is advised to 
   mechwarriors. The small laser is a Omicron because my brother was 
   able to save over 200 of the type of laser from the same location of 
   the datacore. the faclon boasts a mix of ER Mediums and small and 
   standard smalls and medium lasers  and a LRM 5 for long range.

Deployment:
       The Northwind Highlanders have at least 50 for the time being and 
   has feilded them in most of their new green units to test its 
   effectivesness with unseasond mechwarrors. House Marik is interested 
   in the mech and pirchesed about 60 of the type or testing aginst its 
   intended prey.

Battle History:
       Falcon has performed well in hunting down light mechs such as the 
   wasp and stinger and even the newer Osiris.

Known Variants:
       A beagle active probe variant is in the works but no defenant 
   chance as of now

Quite powerful but it does not look like a Falcon anymore.
To me, it is more akin to a Firefly than a Falcon.
I would also try to mix the weapons in the arms so that a lucky shoot in the right one does not let this 'Mech without most of its middle range firepower.
Nice job anyway.
