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.

If you think about it, the perfect merc lives long enough to complete the objective, but not long enough to get paid.

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".

I know that those should be welds, but I can't stop thinking about duct-tape.  ;)
