Clint (40t)
Model by Primus

Andoran Industries began construction of the CLNT-2-3T under the Star League Armaments Act, a law that provided border areas with the latest in battlefield technology. The Andoran Industries project resulted in the construction of more than two hundred of this class. The original Clint prototypes, of which only 20 were built, mounted a heavier autocannon and carried more ammunition. However, the chassis of these models developed stress problems, and the armament was downgraded to its current configuration.
This 'Mech functioned as a recon 'Mech as well as a well-armed, lower-end medium 'Mech. Its history and combat performance shows that it served those purposes well.
To secure their bid on the project, Andoran Industries cut costs in the Clint design. Unfortunately, the resulting design flaws are not easily repaired. Many modular parts that can be exchanged between a wide variety of BattleMechs simply cannot be used on the Clint without a great deal of modification. This problem is particularly acute in the case of the gyro system. This makes the Clint a technician's nightmare at times, because it takes much longer to repair than other 'Mechs
Though individual MechWarriors have modified their Clints in many different ways over the years, the new field modification kit issued by the Capellan Confederation in 3050 shows great promise. It replaces the autocannon with the new Magna Firestar extended-range particle projection cannon, eliminating the ammunition shortage and creating enough room to upgrade the medium lasers to medium pulse lasers. This modification package is expected to greatly improve the Clint's performance.
