Smoke Jaguar Dossier: Conjurer (Hellhound)

Smoke Jaguar Dossier

Type: Battlemech

Name: Conjurer (Hellhound)

Mech Class: Medium

Weight: 50 Tons

Tech Base: Clan

The Conjurer (Hellhound to the Inner Sphere) is a fast, inexpensive medium BattleMech that excels at medium to short range. As befitting its status as a second-line 'Mech, the Conjurer uses a standard engine, though it is constructed on an Endo Steel chassis and uses eight and a half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor. Its jump jets enable it to leap up to 180 meters at a time.

It is noteworthy that the Conjurer is, for all intents and purposes, the Wolverine-IIC.  It was designed off the original Wolverine, taking the concept and rebuilding it with advanced technology. However the Clans would not retain the name of the Not-Named Clan for the redesigned 'Mech. 

The Conjurer uses a Large Pulse Laser that is quite accurate and effective at a respectable range. To back that up, it mounts paired ER Medium Lasers and Streak SRM-2s. Ten double heat sinks are able to keep heat under control, though a Conjurer can summon up a heat problem if pressed too hard.

Captain Nash's Analysis:  I'm not sure if the Clans have made a bad IIC design.  Figure that this mech will be jumping about taking advantage of the Large Pulse laser accuracy.  Drop it quick or ignore it and deal with it after bigger threats are gone.
