Davion Dragon (Vouivre) DRG-6D
« on: 25 June 2022, 04:30:52 »
Ok so continuing with the Dragon theme I have going, I present the Davion Dragon.

The Dragon 6D was cobbled together during the civil war due to a lack of resources, except for ironically salvaged Dragons. One such dragon became the Davion Dragon, or the Vouivre as it was called (french for dragon). The chassis was not modified, but being ample room a Lyran built Light engine was installed with freezers baked in. As for the weapons compliment, a RAC 5 tied to 3 tons of CASE II protected ammo, a Streak 6 launcher with 1 ton of CASE II protected ammo, and the standard medium lasers in the left arm and rear facing were kept.

Finally the armour was replaced with Ferro-Fibrous armour giving better protection than the standard dragon.

Given the CASE II protection along with the light fusion engine, the mech proved to be very resilient, eventually succumbing to a blakist ambush, not before destroying several light WoB vehicles and a Deva while covering the escape of some captured Draconis Combine mechwarriors by the Word.

The schematics made it off world, and it is unknown if the design has been utilised by th DCMS.

Hmm.

The engine doesn't work for me really,  I'd rather the OG model 300 SFE or the newer 360 XL version.

That said the RAC-5 is a solid option for a captured Dragon, I like it.

The Streak for LRMs also works.

I'd probably have gone C3S instead of ECM for more captured DC flavor & giving it a role as a close in brawler for a C3 unit.

From what I can put together LFE's were relatively available within the fed suns space so I thought may as well, gives more weapon load out options, than a full rebuild with say an endo frame would.
