Loki (65t)
Model by Primus

The Loki is one of the Clans' most easily recognized designs. It also has an unusual standard configuration, with a missile rack on one shoulder and a beacon system on the other. Named the Loki by an obscure minor officer in the Armed Forces of the Federated Commonwealth, the 'Mech lives up to his description of its "utterly mad configuration," not only in the version he saw, but in all the others as well. Though the combinations of weapons may appear crazy, not a single Inner Sphere 'Mech could stand up to the Loki when it appeared among Clan attacking forces.

The primary model of the Loki is an electronic marvel. It sports Guardian electronic countermeasures, a Beagle active probe, and a sophisticated targeting computer. Its blend of weapons systems is a sound combination of anti-'Mech and anti-personnel, long-range and short-range, and efficient ammunition use. However, the design cannot handle the massive amounts of heat generated by all these systems. Therefore, the MechWarrior must be cautious in his choice of targets so that the cockpit heat levels do not rise too high.

The Loki is a favorite 'Mech of Clan Jade Falcon, though it appears in the other Clan forces in smaller numbers. It has been seen on all types of missions except for reconnaissance, and always proves to be the equal of two or more Inner Sphere 'Mechs.
