Smoke Jaguar Dossier: Warhammer IIC

Smoke Jaguar Dossier

Type: Battlemech

Name: Warhammer IIC

Mech Class: Assault

Weight: 80 Tons

Tech Base: Clan

The original Warhammer was designed as an assault BattleMech. However, it had been overrun by heavier 'Mechs, though it remained a powerful weapons platform. The Clans wisely maintained and built on this solid frame a real assault 'Mech, the Warhammer IIC. Thanks to their technological expertise, they were able to add ten tons with the same speed and firepower. The Warhammer IIC is built on an Endo Steel frame and is protected by twelve tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor. The result is a dangerous 'Mech, able to hold its own in any battle against the Inner Sphere.

Paired Mk. XVII ER PPCs allow the Warhammer IIC to inflict fifty percent more damage than the regular Successor States' PPCs. Added to an SRM-6 launcher and five Medium Pulse Lasers, this firepower overwhelms most 'Mechs of equal or lesser tonnage. Twenty double heat sinks keep the design relatively cool.

Captain Nash's Analysis:  It's going to start getting scary from this point on.  First of the Jaguar Clan assault mechs you guys will probably face.  Too bad you did such a number on Star Captain Gehrig's Mad Cat, recon satellites have confirmed that one of these beasts is his back up ride.  Recommendation, given the choice I would stay at range with this monster.  The twin ERPPC's are scary, but not so much as the 5 Medium Pulse Lasers, ERPPC and SRM6 it unloads when she gets close.
