Vulcan (40t)
Model by Primus BuS
The need for a strong anti-infantry 'Mech with offensive capabilities was realized during the battles against Stefan the Usurper. In many conflicts, especially urban combat, infantry could render small 'Mechs inoperative. To solve this problem, MatherTechno Inc. introduced the VL-2T Vulcan. This BattleMech reached the front line during General Kerensky's landings on Earth, where it earned a reputation as a tough urban fighting machine. Its flamer system, machine gun and heavy armor performed effectively against infantry. The autocannon system was originally designed as an anti-'Mech system, but served well in city fighting.
