Smoke Jaguar Dossier: Peregrine (Horned Owl)

Smoke Jaguar Dossier

Type: Battlemech

Name: Peregrine (Horned Owl)

Mech Class: Light

Weight: 35 Tons

Tech Base:Clan

The Horned Owl (or Peregrine, as the Inner Sphere knows it) is a light, fast second-line BattleMech capable of highly accurate fire. A harassing platform, the Horned Owl is also a capable dueling 'Mech. Five tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor provide adequate protection for the light 'Mech.

Armed with a single Large Pulse Laser and a Medium Pulse Laser in each arm, the Horned Owl's devastatingly accurate fire can quickly destroy other light 'Mechs.

Horned Owl 2 - This variant trades in its lasers for six LRM-5s  and four tons of ammunition. Though it is entirely ammunition-dependent, this model can provide light Stars with sustained support, as it will not build heat under normal circumstances.

Captain Nash's Mission #2 Analysis:  Details on another of the mechs Merloni spotted in his area.  This guy is very accurate with his fire having all Pulse lasers.  He will make short work of light mechs.  Safe bet that he will be jumping about making himself much harder to hit as well.  

Tech Readout:


  1. Too bad we won't be able to pull Mech salvage.. Another nice chassis.


  2. Yeah, Area is a little to full of Jags to pull salvage from. Merloni also said he saw two toed "Mechprints" from some Heavy and Assault class Clan Omnis in the area. He thinks they were a couple weeks old.


  3. Ya, good that he "thinks" they were a couple weeks old...

  4. Yeah, we're not yelling "LOOOOOOOOU", we really are booing him.
