Clan Behemouth DropShip
« on: 11 July 2019, 23:08:58 »
So, i was re-reading TRO: 3057 Revised.  I came to realize (yes i'm slow) that opening section for the Clan Dropships has this picture with some stats of a Clan version of the Behemoth (P.69).

Is this class of dropship a canon real one that was completely forgotten about? Its not in MUL.

Most likely not, for a number of reasons. Firstly p69 gives no solid stats - its just a re-use of the image from the Inner Spere section with slighly different wording. You'll note it says 'possible contents' and nothing more.

Secondly the Behemoth write-up on p66-67 makes no mention of a Clan version. The Clans don't tend to up weapon cargo DropShips - chances are they are using the Inner Sphere version of the ship.

Now that doesn't mean there isn't a Clan version, its just that we don't have anything to confirm the existance of one.

Hope that helps,

Chris
