I like it, but if the Exiles make the Pouncer... why make this? The Pouncer is already an omni that trades this one's speed for jumping and a ton and a half of pod space.

Fast, fully armored, plenty of space for it's payload. Can't ask for much more in an omnimech.

Off hand, its a Lupus.  Wonder if I can find an old file to compare it against.

Overview:
After participating in Operation Bulldog, which led to the destruction of all
Clan Smoke Jaguar elements in the Inner Sphere, Clan Wolf-in-Exile returned to
the task of rebuilding their society.  The rebuilding plan, codenamed "Project
Chihuahua", not only involved improving their trade ties and infrastructure,
but also the creation of five flagship designs that would not only provide
replacements for material losses, but also to provide a morale boost for the
exiled Warden faction.  The first of these five designs, the 40-ton Warhound,
would make its debut in mid-3061.

Clan Wolf-in-Exile scientists based the Warhound off the Coyotl, the Omnimech
that had the honor of being the first of its kind.  However, they also used the
Artic Wolf's leg assembly and XL Fusion Engine, as well as moulds from the
Pouncer, in order to give the Warhound a sleeker look.  As a result, they were
able to create an Omnimech that was not only fast, but has a low target aspect
ratio, all done in a relatively short time.  Furthermore, the Warhound provided
the template for how the other four flagship "Project Chihuahua" designs would
be created.


Capabilities:
The Warhound utilizes an a Light Force Type-280 XL Engine as its main
powerplant, which it shares with the Arctic Wolf, allowing the Omnimech to
reach a top speed of 118 km/h, while accomodating 10 double heat sinks.  To
further save weight, the Warhound was built with an Endo-Steel  chassis, while
using 7 tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor for protection.  Finally, the Warhound's 17
tons of pod space would allow it to carry a great variety of weapons and
equipment.

In its Primary configuration, the Warhound is a capable all around 'Mech. For
long ranges, it has a pair of ER Large Lasers, backed up by a trio of ER Medium
Lasers and two SRM-4 launchers for mid-to-close range combat.  Three extra
double heat sinks help keep waste heat at reasonable levels.

Configuration A is tailored for short-range engagements, with its weapons
consisting of two Streak SRM-6 launchers and a trio of Medium Pulse Lasers. 
This configuration also has an Active Probe and an ECM Suite for
anti-electronics warfare.  Heat issues are mitigated by the addition of an
extra Double Heat Sink.

 Configuration B of the Warhound is meant for fire support, with an ER PPC and
an LRM-15 launchers as its main long-range weapons.  These are backed up by
four ER Medium Lasers and a Micro Pulse Laser.  An additional Double Heat Sink
helps keep waste heat under control.

Inspired by the Coyotl A, the Warhound's Configuration C is meant for urban
fighting.  This configuration has seven jump jets, further improving its
mobility.  A Large Pulse Laser is the primary weapon, supported by a pair of ER
Medium Lasers, a pair of SRM-4 launchers, and a Micro Pulse Laser.  An Active
Probe detects hidden enemies, while an additional Double Heat Sinks helps
mitigate heat issues.

Configuration D is a dedicated long-range combatant, as its weapons set include
an ER Large Laser, an Ultra-AC/5, and a pair of LRM-5 launchers.  A
center-torso mounted ER Medium Laser is included for close-range defense.

Configuration E serves as a test-bed for Heavy Laser technology, with each arm
sporting a Heavy Medium Laser.  These are complemented by an SRM-6 launcher on
each side torso, and an ER PPC on the center torso provides a powerful
long-range bite.  A targeting computer was also installed to further improve
direct-fire accuracy.  Due to the high waste heat produced, two more double
heat sinks were added as well.

An extremely flexible configuration, Configuration F has an ER Large Laser as
its primary long range weapon. This is backed up by an ATM-6 launcher on each
arm, which are capable of firing ammunition for long, medium, and short ranges,
which have increasing warhead payloads as the ranges close.


Battle History:
The Warhound's first known deployment was in late 3063, in the planet of New
Exford.  The 2nd Wolf Guardians fought against the 3rd Falcon Jaegers, a
Cluster created by Khan Marthe Pryde primarily from "Hatchlings" that survived
after the Jade Falcon's 3058 incursion into the Lyran space.  Despite being
experienced in battle, the Falcon Cluster was decimated by the 2nd Wolf
Guardians, who deployed several Warhounds during their battles against the
Falcons.  The  3rd Falcon Jaegers were virtually destroyed as a unit, and the
survivors were taken as bondsmen by the victorious Wolf-in-Exile Cluster.


Deployment:
As the Warhound was to be one of their Totem Omnimechs, the Warhound would
become mainstay within the Clan Wolf-in-Exile touman, where it is used as
either a replacement or alternate to the Fenris and Phantom Omnimechs that they
currently field as well.
