Description

Originally designed as an OmniMech, the Argus was developed in a joint venture between Achernar BattleMechs and Robinson Standard BattleWorks and was originally rejected by the AFFC citing cost of production. Achernar and Robinson modified the 'Mech and resubmitted it as a standard BattleMech that was quickly picked up by the AFFC. Powered by a 300 XL engine and built with Endo-Steel construction, the Argus is a versatile chassis. The AGS-2D is the original model, armed for a ranged stand-off, carrying a pair of Artemis IV-enabled LRM-15s for bombardment while an ER PPC provides direct-fire punch.

Description

Once the AFFS could accept the Magshot Gauss Rifle into production, the brass found itself with a weapon in need of a platform. The Argus AGS-3M was born of that need. Armed with a massive six Magshots, the Argus proved the perfect platform for the weapons. However, the designers were given a little too much latitude with the rest of the mech's systems and after a few greased palms the -3M was put into service. The backup weapons for the Magshots turned out to be a pair of Thunderbolt-10 launchers and a solitary ER Large Laser. While the missiles proved effective, supply issues often meant the -3M was immediately refit upon reaching the front lines.

Powered by a 300 XL engine and built with Endo-Steel construction, the Argus is a versatile chassis. The AGS-4D is the primary production model, armed for all ranges, with a LRM-10 at long range, a RAC/5 at middle ranges, and a pair of ER Mediums and a Machine Gun up close.
