I’m digging the Orion arm on that second mech. I love everything about the Orion after falling in love with the universe in MW3

BWP-9S Ymir 'Duchess'

Once a gate guardian at the HQ of the 3rd Arcturan Guards and one of the original BWP-X1 that had been largely stripped and its only maintenance was to recive new licks of paint.
The arrival of the Clans pulled the 3rd away to the frontlines and as combat saw increasing casualties, the Techs and Mechanics of the 3rd saw a chance to aid with the war efforts.
Petitioning a Company Commander to carry out a 'off work' project to try provide another 'Mech without waiting on the now overworked supply lines and personnel.

The result was 'Duchess', using a 270 rated engine from a crippled Highlander, an arm from a wrecked Orion as well as other weapons from a range of 'Mechs and storage or that were 'found'. As the 'Mech was basically a stripped hulk it was comparatively easy to retrofit the 'Mech, although integration of weapons, sensors, power systems and refitting the actuators and adding myomer all took time.

Still the 'Mech didn't explode or catch fire during its first full power tests and weapon tests and was presented to the 3rd Guards by the Regiment's Techs and Mechanics.

Et Tu Brutus?

To try and combat the Clans, the Federated Commonwealth tried a wide range of refits and variants, some official others put together by think tanks. The Brutus Blazer replaces the paired large lasers with a single Blazer cannon whilst the SRM's are replaced with a pair of Streak SRM-2's in the bow.

Additional armour is added and Artemis fitted. The result is a tough tank that was designed by a 'collection of mad scientists, pyromaniacs and light fingered criminals.'

I'm not sure why Plog likes his Blazer Cannons to have a single barrel...  I prefer mine with two, but whatever works for you, good sir!  :thumbsup:

The first draft of my Marik Civil War Hunchback had a single barrel too, and we talked about it.

One of the MA-9KG Mackie 'Karl-Gerät' attached to an AFFC unit. Deployed in Company sized 'Breacher Companies' these were usually broken down into Lance sized 'Batteries' for operations and training. Each Battery would operate together and wasn't parcelled out, as the firepower of four Long Tom Cannons could smash any fortification with ease without emperilling any of the 'Mechs.

We can rebuild him...make him stronger!

Despite being mauled by enemy fire and a gauss rifle exploding, this Devastator was down, but not out. Still some 'surgery' was needed to get the 'Mech into a fighting shape and destroyed weapons had to be replaced.

Take a standard DVS-2 Devastator. Remove the left arm Gauss and two tons of Gauss ammo, the Medium Lasers and the PPC's. Add a AC/20 to the left arm (three tons of ammo), mount one ER Large Laser and one Medium Pulse Laser in the left and right torso, mount two Small Pulse Lasers (one in the head, one in the center torso firing to the rear), increase the number of Double Heat Sinks to 15, increase armor to 19.5 tons. If you did this, you know have A DVS-2R Devastator "Wiedergänger".

The ebony and red 'Mech clicked and popped slightly as it cooled down, the air rippling around its heatsink exhausts as it bled off the heat from its TSM as the 75-ton 'Mech sat at rest. The specs were all in the green, even when pushed hard, hitting 112.8kph once the TSM was engaged, the speed of the 'Mech and her handling getting an excited roar from the Pilot as he took it through the range, engaging various static, mobile and holo targets.

Rumor was that the Maelstrom line was going to be altered to look like this, just not with the weapons pick or TSM, and the Tech had to agree it was far better looking, sleeker, more aggressive rather than stubby and somewhat rotund.

“So! How’d she handle?” Technician 1st Class Gunther Elsebrook said as he looked up at the ‘Mech towering over him, hearing booted footsteps crunching on the gravel coming up behind him.

"Like a dream, smoother than silk, you made quite a machine."

"Nah! You altered the specs, I just put it together, besides, you're the customer, well you and the boss, and you pay so you get a say."

The younger man grinned, sweeping a hand through short blond hair that framed a handsome face that had featured on quite a few magazine covers and holo-show interviews following The War of 3039.

"True but I do owe you and I'm a man of my word so...what will it be hmm?"

"Oh none of that Sir, i'm married and whilst I know that's not stopped you in the past...I'd rather not be on the reciving end of Carole's wrath thank you very much."

The younger man grinned and chuckled "True...I've caused a scandal or three..but I do insist so how does a crate of Arcturian Brandy sound then, i've got some from 2950, a very fine vintage."

The tech blinked, that stuff was worth about 1k C-bills a pop, if you was lucky, it really did pay to be a Noble's son it seemed.

"Deal and i'll let the folks know and we'll have a drink to your good fortune, oh...got a name for her?"

The former Lyran noble tilted his head, thinking for a moment before smiling.

"Jah. Hotspur."

Watching over the land, ready to take up arms to defend their homes, land and loved ones, the Minutemen are part of human history.

That name now walks from Mitchell Weapons Works who are proud and honoured to introduce the MIN-01N Minuteman BattleMech!

Designed to be rugged, easy to repair and armed enough to see of any threat at any range this 40-ton design is made to be easy to repair and pilot, using as many off the shelf components as possible to reduce operating costs and allow ease of familiarisation with new pilots and trainees alike.

The newly developed SarLon MiniCannon, the Minuteman has the same ballistic punch as a Shadow Hawk, but lighter and easier to repair than many older marks of autocannon.

Lasers and missiles round out the armament and a maximum speed of 86kph allows the Minuteman to react quickly to any threat.

Already ordered by the Federated Commonwealth the Minuteman's performance does not come at a high cost, although no price is higher than the cost of freedom.

Contact your local MWM or Norse Storm Industries salesman for further information!
