Rules:         Level 2, Standard design

Jump Capacity: 0 meters
Armor Type:    Fire Resistant
R&D Start Date:  3125
Prototype Design and Production:  3127

==Overview:==
Even though it was produced all the way back in Regulan space, the Rasalhague Dominion somehow acquired a small number of the Ogre Battlesuit.  These Ogres found their way to the Dominion's 283rd Battle Cluster, where Star Captain Delvillar, a commander of a Supernova unit took a liking to it.  Despite a trial of grievance from the 283rd's commanding officer over the inclusion of the Ogre into Delvillar's command Point, the Ogre's performance in the Trial changed the Star Colonel's mind, and even went so far as to arranging a deal with Clan Sea Fox merchants to keep the Ogres in Delvillar's Supernova well supplied.

Although the Ogre found a certain degree of acceptance in the 283rd, due to its Inner Sphere origin, it was only held begrudgingly.  It wasn't until an unusually innovative Technician started tinkering with a spare Ogre suit under his care and giving it some Clan upgrades that the suit finally began gaining widespread acceptance inside the 283rd.  The modified suit stripped away the Mimetic Armor in favor of a Fire Resistant and Camo System combo.  Taking the Interdictor variant as a starting point, the Technician upgraded the 8-shot Inner Sphere SRM 2 to a 7-shot Clan SRM 3, as well as the Inner Sphere ECM Suite to a Clan made model.  The battleclaws were also upgraded to battle vibro-claws, though only the right arm is of the Heavy variety, with the left arm being just a regular battle vibro-claw due to weight issues.

News of the "Ogre C" got the attention of warriors from outside of the 283rd Battle Cluster, and thanks to this interest, enterprising Dominion Merchants have begun setting up deals whereby they would buy stripped bare-bones chassis from the Regulans through Sea Fox intermediaries, and outfit them to "Ogre C" standards for sale to any interested parties in the Dominion touman.

Another popular variant that came shortly after the "Ogre C" uses Improved Stealth armor instead of Fire Resistant, and the ECM is replaced with a Light Machine Gun.  Due to weight issues, the Battle Vibro-claws had to revert back into Heavy Battle Claws.

Despite the market becoming saturated with the Ogre C and Ogre C-2 variants, a third Dominion Merchant startup decided to get in on the act and produced the Ogre C-3 variant, where they took the Ogre C-2 and modified it so that it now contained a 4-shot Advanced SRM 3 Launcher.  Because of the lower ammunition load from swapping out the missile launchers, the right arm Heavy Battle Vibro-Claw found in the original Ogre C was able to make a comeback, and the Light Machine Gun was replaced with a Heavy Grenade Launcher that was capable of being loaded with three different Ammunition types, usually of the Inferno (to compensate for the C-3's inability to use Inferno missiles thanks to the Advanced SRM 3's incompatibility with missiles of that type), High Explosive and Smoke round varieties, though Anti-Infantry, Anti-Vehicle and Stun rounds weren't entirely out of the question either.

Type/Model:    "Ogre C-4" Heavy Battle Armor
Tech/Era:      Mixed / 3145 / CBT:RPG Rules
Chassis Type:  Humanoid
Weight Class:  Heavy Battle Armor (1,001 - 1,500 kg)
Rules:         Level 2, Standard design

Ground Speed:  31.4 km/h
Jump Capacity: 30 meters
Armor Type:    Improved Stealth
R&D Start Date:  3133
Prototype Design and Production:  3135
Standard Production:  3135

==Overview:==
The last of the "Ogre C" variants, the Ogre C-4 is again based on the Improved Stealth armored Ogre C-2, this time however, the Camo System, which was a standard feature in all previous "Ogre C" variants, was removed in favor of a Mechanical Jump Booster, in order to give it a 50% increase in ground speed, as well as a handy, if limited, jump movement capability.  The weapons are a mix of an 8-shot Advanced SRM 2 Launcher, a 4-shot SRM 1 Launcher which is typically loaded with Inferno missiles, and a Light TAG mounted on the Left Arm.  To make everything fit, the Ogre's signature dual Heavy Battle Claws had to be replaced with Basic Manipulators, but they were designed to cosmetically resemble Heavy Battle Claws so that to the outside world, they still look like any other Ogre variant made by the Dominion.
