Contest #1 will require a design using a large laser (it need not be the main weapon) and jump jets.

It must be a medium or heavy Inner Sphere mech, and should be able to be used in an attack lance.

It can be either a level 1 or 2 design, and any tech used in 3058 or prior is allowed.

Presume cost is not an issue.

Deadline for entries is 2359 EST on 19 February 2011.

Questions/comments should be posted in the comments thread: http://www.heavymetalpro.com/forums/vie ... 14&t=19790

this is a version of a canon mech, the marauder 3M, in fact i think this is the first faction specific mech i have made.
the marik engineers managed to raise the heat sink capacity by two, and give it maximum armor as well as 4 jjs in exchange for the autocannon.
they also, obviously having a sense of humor, managed to give it a rating (BV1) that is LEET(1337)

==Overview:==


==Capabilities:==


==Battle History:==



==Variants:==
Overheating and the lack of reliable PPCs have forced House Marik to
replace the Marauder's characteristic twin PPCs with heavy lasers. The
reduction in heat has, to some extent, compensated for the concurrent
reduction in firepower, and so the Marauder-M is a widely used variant.

in some situations the mobility of a marauder is not sufficient. for
situations when jumpjets are needed House Marik ordered the development of the
Marauder MAD-3MJ that sacrifices the autocannon for 4 jumpjets. for maximum
battle endurance it also features a thicker Armor.
its heatsinks are able to remove the heat of a full alpha strike, when not
moving.

Communications System: Neil 6000

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==Overview:==
The Grouse Hound is one of a series of designs that came from the
collaberation between FEDCOM and Combine technicians, ostensibly to fight the
clans. This previously unheard of colaberation has brought us the Gunslinger
design, though the H-0-ND seems more useful in fighting innersphere types of
battles. The Combine says that the design is primarily for mercenary export,
but that remains to be seen.

==Capabilities:==
Every attack lance needs someone to ferret out the enemy for the other mechs.
The Grouse Hound is exceptionally good at it. It can set the range of its
engagements due to the speed it possesses, allowing the larger mechs of the
unit to be in between it and harm, until such time as it's specialized
talents are called for. At which time it closes in to flank enemies
entrenched in positions that the rest of the lance forcing those mechs to make
the decision between knife-fighting a mech designed for the task, or running
out of its "hidey hole" and getting blown to smithereens by the attack lance.

Traditionally the Phoenix Hawk was used in this capacity, however that design
features several weaknesses that the Grouse Hound seeks to remedy. Removing the
ammunition-based secondary weapons was a no brainer, as was the increase in
armor. By adding 5 tons to the design, the machine inflicts SLIGHTLY more
powerful kicks, but the moving of the weapons to the torso allows for punching
in tandem with weapons fire, allowing the mech to make a series of strikes at
the cockpit of enemy mechs that don't chose to flee their hiding places.

The design uses a combination of time-tested weapons and state of the art
support equipment, the heatsinks, frame, and armor are all the latest in
design. The use of the standard engine was a deliberate choice, making the
machine more survivable in close brawls

A late addition to the design was the inclusion of a c3 slave unit. This
allows the GH-0-ND to better utilize the extreme proximity its design mission
entails for the benefit of the rest of the lance or company it is attached to,
and it is suspected that the Grouse Hound was designed with the c3 Master
variant of the Gunslinger in mind.

The Grouse Hound often finds itself used to chase off small flankers itself.
it's size and speed makes it ideal for chasing small mechs with LRMs or other
fast mediums like itself. In this mission it is sometimes referred to as the
"sheepdog", a term equal parts derision and admiration.

==Variants:==
Removal of the c3 unit frees up weight to improve two of the small lasers to
mediums, a common refit for units lacking the new and relatively hard to
aquire c3 gear.

==Deployment==
The Grouse Hound is being deployed to various mercenary units, the Eridani
Light Horse, the Northwind Highlanders, the Crater Cobras, and other units
that have experience with SLDF -era equipment. The exception to this is the
"gift" of several dozen to the Kell Hounds, with a cryptic note about
"bulldogs, wolfhounds, and other hunting dogs". Even more curious is the fact
that the default factory paint scheme is the same gull grey that old SLDF
mechs used as their default scheme, though this is explained as being less
inflammatory than the default "Draconis Parade Red" that is normally used.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==Overview:==
Due to a carefully crafted public relations campaign, the ZPH-1A Tarantula is
slowly overcoming the stigma associated with four-legged mech designs.
Following the Tarantula's moderate success, Corean soon released a much
heavier and more robust design, the RCL-1A Recluse.

Intended to serve in medium and fast attack lances, the Recluse is the
heaviest jump-capable, quad-legged mech to date.

==Capabilities:==
In appearance the Recluse is clearly reminiscent of the Tarantula. They share
the same squat yet sleek design profile. The Recluse also shares many of the
Tarantula's basic components including the same electronics and the same
StarSlab armor. Yet where the Tarantula's weapons are barely evident at first
glance, the Recluse displays its menacing laser battery for all to see.

The primary weapons of the Recluse are two Magna Mk III large lasers, mounted
on the upper surface and the left and right torso. A Martell medium pulse
laser in each torso rounds out the weaponry. With this weapon array the
Recluse can either deliver a devastating close-range alpha strike or keep a
more dangerous enemy at range with the large lasers. With a 180-meter jump
distance the Recluse is fully able to control the terms of an engagement.

Although it is not designed as a scout, the Recluse also features a Beagle
active probe. Like its namesake the Recluse is thus highly aware of its
surroundings. As a final touch the designers have crafted the external
components of the Beagle to resemble the eyes of an arachnid, while the medium
pulse lasers form its "fangs."

With its high mobility, excellent firepower, and powerful sensors, the Recluse
is an asset to any attack lance.

The Bidaut (named after lightly armed mediveal mercenaries from the south of France & Northern Spain medium of Terra) 'Mech is a useful addition to attack lances, due to its ECM & BAP, the flamer & twin SPL are good anti-pbi weapons. The Federated Commonwealth is started a small production run.

I hope this is of use. I've entered the 2rd of 3 variants as I'm not sure how many variants I can post in this contest.

Manufacturer:  Luthien Armor Works
  Location:    Luthien
Communications System:  Sipher CommCon SCU-4 w. Guardian ECM Suite
Targeting & Tracking System:  Eagle Eye SY10-11

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==Overview:==
The Bakeneko (Monster-Cat) was designed to fill a role that had opened with
the change in tactics the DCMS adopted when facing the Clans. Choosing to
engage the Clans on terrain that limited their range advantage often put
designs such as the Grand Dragon at a disadvantage, lacking jump jets to
negotiate the difficult terrain that battles were being fought upon.

After a limited production run the DCMS cancelled further orders so that
Luthien Armor Works could concentrate production on the versatile Black
Hawk-KU OmniMech.

==Capabilities:==
Designed to lead an assault against Clan forces the Bakeneko is well armored
carrying 25% more armor than the Grand Dragon and further augmented by a Yori
Flyswatter Anti-Missile System and CASE to protect the MechWarrior from
ammunition explosions.

Although having a lower ground speed than the Grand Dragon the Bakeneko's 150
meter jump capacity grants much greater tactical mobility. With its mobility,
C³ Slave Unit to provide accurate targeting data to other members of its Lance
and a powerful ECM Suite to protect and hide their movements the Bakeneko is
considered a valuable addition to an Attack Lance.

The offensive weapons provide the MechWarrior with a variety of engagement
options from stand-off long range indirect fire with the Shigunga LRM 15 to a
short range barrage of missile and laser fire. It was originally intended to
mount a Diverse Optics Type 30X model Large Laser to further enhance long
range fire-power but shortages meant that all production models were fitted
with the standard model. 

==Variants:==
The C³ Slave Unit in the head is designed to be easily replaced in the field
by a Small Pulse Laser for units that do not employ C³ networks.

Most remaining Bakeneko's have had their Large Laser replaced with the ER
model.

I'll go ahead and submit this. I never found the time to finalize the fluff entries, but suffice it to say, it's an Outworld's Alliance design attempt in the 3040s at attracting more MechWarriors into its ranks. The name might also imply a naval vessel or aerospace fighter, which might surprise opponents in first encounters, underestimating their 'Mech strength.
