A WIP of a Hellion Elemental in standard armour



The Hellions rarely made use of standard infantry formations and often it was solhama personnel who would be equipped with little more than a rifle and a few grenades, or used as security forces. Due to their lower number of Elementals, they were not used in a heavy infantry role, instead they'd form part of a Khan's honour guard when visiting facilities or locations where Elemental suits were simply too impractical.

Sir,

It appears that the Jaguars have reactivated Subsidiary Site 04/D on Huntress to produce the quadruped testbed they had once made there. I know that the Jaguar's are desperate for Mechs following Tukayyid and have been unable to strong-arm other Clans in Trials, this attempt to increase their industrial output is notable, as is their Merchants trading as aggressively as possible for any resources as they attempt to rebuild their battered touman.

We have also seen an increase in production at Production Plant DL-6 and have some initial images of a Mech that appears to be based on the Ebon Jaguar, but it appears heavier and clearly incorporates parts from the Warhawk such as its left arm assembly and a modified version of its leg actuators. More data on both is to follow.

Merchant Factor Kara (Barbaro)

I must report good news! The transition from an orbital mobile factory to a ground-based one on Rondane has been a success and the facility is operational and now fully staffed. Although there have been quality control issues, it seems the locals are more than happy to work for us, and this bodes well for the rest of our Occupation Zone and future expansion plans.

Of course we must still import weapons systems, and the electronics, but these issues can be overcome and at the moment most of our trade is going into the Inner Sphere and if we have to deliver units to the Homeworlds, we can merge them with their weapons and electronics there. Production is now underway albeit at a lower rate whilst we work out all the kinks and ensure the factory personnel are up to standards.

By any standards these are quite simple machines, but they are more than capable of serving in defensive roles in PCGs which are being stripped bare by the Invading Clans to rebuild their frontline forces, so we can expect many successful Trades.

Please find attached a projected cost/benefit analysis as well as our planned production schedule and expansion plans.

Attention. This is an MRBC Update.

Forces raiding into Clan Nova Cat or Smoke Jaguar territory need to be aware of a potential new threat, it seems the Clanners are repurposing salvaged Mechs for defensive formations. Elements of Redaxes' Rampagers encountered what initially appeared to be 'friendly' resistance forces in the form of a pair of Panthers but both Mech's opened fire on the Rampagers, downing a Valkyrie and Cicadia before disengaging, both Mechs were unresponsive to hails and allowed the Rampager scouts to get close before engaging.

The Cicadia was engaged at longer range than would be expected as it ran, and it appears the PPC of these Mechs' has been replaced with a Clan large laser, and there are additional missile ports which are the main identifiers, if any of these machines are salvaged please see the below links for good prices on any materials recovered.

LB-2's and ERML's yes, there's no advanced equipment or materials used in its construction and its gained 5-tons of weight, this WIP is also missing the 4 MG's its meant to have and its got thicker armour than its cousins.

Khan Djerassi

I wish to report success in our latest Trial against Clan Burrock we obtained the two Stars of Mechs they had produced and I think they will look far better in Scorpion colours. Once landed they will of course be presented for your inspection.
