Huron Warrior (50t)
Model by Primus
Like the Free Worlds League, the Capellan Confederation profited economically from the Clan invasion. Making use of the new technologies, the Hollis Industries Works, located on several key Capellan worlds, began to upgrade their existing designs. The Huron Warrior is the result of one such modification. The design team named the BattleMech for its stately form and for the fact that the sensor array on top of the cockpit resembles an ancient Earth Indian war bonnet. The lead engineer, Danial Peterson Longfeather, is a decendant of the Huron tribe of North America. He contributed modifications to the exterior of the 'Mech that added to its Indian warrior appearance. The Huron Warrior was designed to be a counter to the Black Hawk OmniMech of the invading Clans. Though it is difficult to match all the technological prowess of these formidable foes, the Huron Warrior carries heavier armor and a deadly punch spearheaded by a Grizzard Gauss rifle. Additional armament: 1 Martell Medium Pulse Laser, 1 Martell Extended Range Large Laser. It is rumored, but not confirmed, that several Huron Warriors have been sold to Word of Blake forces within the Free Worlds League.
