Even more, once our Order began to understand the Clans, to all appearances they despised vehicles. This led to the erroneous belief that vehicles were simply not used among the Clans. Obviously, we now know that perception to be false. First, the majority of Clans do field vehicles, at least in their second-line and garrison units. Second, there are several Clans, such as the Star Adders, Blood Spirits and most notably Hells Horses, who have actually embraced vehicles to one extent or another.
As none of these Clans participated in Operation Revival, it is no wonder our view was skewed. Yet, even with these Clans accepting the role of vehicles more readily then their brother Clans, no new Clan vehicle had been designed in well over a century. Most of the extant designs in use did not contain a full array of the newest Clan technologies, as most Clans considered it a waste to mount such expensive equipment on a vehicle. With the invasion of the Inner Sphere, however, the Clans met their two greatest defeats at the hands of combined arms tactics. This development caused many Clansespecially those already making extensive use of vehiclesto reassess the designs currently available to them.
Such harsh self-examination led directly to the development and deployment of six new designs tailored to fill in the tactical gaps left by current designs. Whether this is an anomaly or the start of a vehicle revolution among the Clans is difficult to discernonly time will tell. It is significant to note, however, that Clans in the Inner Sphere field half of these designs, while the other three are fielded by Clans already associated with extensive vehicle use.

Yet, regardless of the current troubles, it was the invasion of the Inner Sphere by the Clans that, in an effort to fight defeat them, prompted the House Lords to form the very Star League the Clans sought to reinstate.
Moreover, because of the heroic efforts of our Order which forced the Clans to halt their offensive, the Houses of the Inner Sphere were given that most precious of commodities: time. Time to develop new technologies and new weapons that would allow them to close the technology gap between themselves and the Clans.
Even after the Great Refusal and the refutation of the invasion itself, the various Houses spurned themselves on, creating ever more sophisticated and deadly military weaponry. Though many field refit kits for this new weaponry and equipment were shipped to upgrade classic BattleMech chassis across the Inner Sphere during and after the Clan invasion, it is not surprising that many new designs have been produced, designs specifically built to maximize said equipment. This report compiles a list of all known new designs fielded within the last decade.

With the fixed weapon payload, in , and full-scale production a year later, nents and placed under close scrutiny in however, the Lyran engineers demonstrated their the design quickly appeared in staunchly loyal an attempt to close the gap between Clan lack of expertise with light Mech designs by units such as the Royal Guard, the Alliance and Inner Sphere manufacturing techniques.
Some companies, however, attempted to dependent weapons, like the SRM-2 Streak and The Stiletto saw action in most major retro-engineer whole designs, replicating LRMs rather than lighter energy weapons that battles throughout the civil war, playing a large them with available technologies in a manner could exploit the large VOX power plants integral role in the battles for both Tharkad and New similar to the DCMS efforts with the Black heat sinks.
Several designs armored, but under-gunned when compared to loyalist armies. As a result, the Mech is virtually were included in this program, but only those designs of comparable mass. Although the engine Variants is heavier than standard XL engines mounted Pilots of the new machine continue to be Capabilities by Mechs of similar capabilities, it takes up less critical of its ammo-fed weaponry.
Debuted Though heavier than its parent by some space, thus reducing damage probabilities shortly after the outbreak of war, the only ten tons, the Stiletto is, visually at least, a near against the engine. Deployment lasers, an ER large laser and a flamer. Although Here is where the similarities end, however. To Prototypes of the Stiletto entered service less heat efficient than its progenitor, the get this performance, the Stilettos power plant less than a year after the Falcons accepted B-variant quickly found favor among pilots is almost twice as massive as the Clan machines hegira from Coventry, with most of those assigned to long-range patrols.
Many other components also had to be prototypes shipped to pro-Victor units such as up-scaled just to gain the same performance as the First Davion Guards for field testing, courtesy the Fire Falcon. Overview Capabilities and maneuverability would be enough to make Prior to the launching of The Chimera is meant to function in light up for that.
Considering its heavy weapons Operations Bulldog and Serpent, and cavalry Mech units, providing relatively loadout, the Chimera is certainly one of the most relations between the Federated heavy fire and still maintain a moderately high formidable medium-class Mechs to debut in the Commonwealth and the Draconis speed, allowing it to keep up with scouting last decade.

With the full run from with the Gunslinger years earlier. At the behest of Archon something that can often make the difference Kurita made the preemptive move to license Katherine Steiner-Davion, the Lyran Alliance in the heat of battle. When she later took While some have suggested that the hadnt pledged absolute loyalty to Katherine the control of the Federated Commonwealth, number of energy weapons might give the opportunity to also purchase these new Mechs.

The heat efficient. Though pilots who constantly Variants product of the effort between the nations soon push the Mech to its design limits will run into The Quentin and Epsilon Eridani plants became something quite different from the problems, the Chimera is consistently lauded as a produce a variant for Combine and other select joint effort that was initially conceived.

It has a high speed and is quite units that replaces the machine gun and many resources already invested in the project nimble, factors only enhanced by its jump ammunition with a C3 slave computer, giving by all concerned, however, there was no choice capacity.

This concept would become the in the waters, as a warning to lancemates they on medium-to-long range battles, the 4B variant Sha Yu, the Shark, named for its bullet-shaped are about to attempt such a feat.
