Description

Though it never made it to full production due to issues with the design, scholars consider this. the Bellerophon, the second true BattleMech. Designed by House Steiner shortly after their acquisition of the Mackie, the Bellerophon had technical issues with its gyro that prevented full-scale deployment and was lost to history. However, it was revived in the 3060s both in the Lyran Alliance and in various Periphery states that needed any hardware they could get. The Large Lasers and SRM-4 combo quickly overwhelm the spare 14 heat sinks, but the armor is acceptable and the speed is ok, leading to its deployment in Periphery armies.

Description

Though one of the earliest lost BattleMechs, the Bellerophon was resurrected in the early 3030s by a Lyran Commonwealth looking for any war material they could lay hands on. Thanks to almost six centuries of improved BattleMech knowledge, Lyran designers rapidly sorted out the issues with the original design and even changed around the design slightly. The SRM was swapped for a heavier LRM-15, made possible by use of a standard engine and armor. The Large Lasers were retained but a new set of 16 heat sinks kept the mech well cooled. The Bellerophon served well and went on to have several later upgrades as technology recovered.

Description

Built by House Steiner as a testbed for the experimental Variable-Speed Pulse Lasers, the BEL-3Q found more acceptance with front-line units for its plentiful energy weapon mounts than it did for the VSPLs. Armed with a paltry-looking loadout for a heavy, the Large VSPL and 4 Medium VSPLs proved capable if the Bellerophon could close range effectively, though the relatively slow speed made that difficult most of the time. Additionally, the XL Engine and only 11.5 tons of armor made the mech fragile while the 15 DHS struggled to keep the mech cooled in most circumstances.

Description

Though one of the earliest lost BattleMechs, the Bellerophon was resurrected in the early 3030s by a Lyran Commonwealth looking for any war material they could lay hands on. In the 3060s, the Steiners built several more upgrades of the Bellerophon, including this, the BEL-3S. Armed with a simple, though ammo-dependent, loadout, the -3S proved a battlefield success. Paired Streak SRM-6s provide highly accurate firepower at close-range while a trio of Light Autocannon/5s provide respectable ranged punch. Endo-Steel gives the mech the weight required for the weaponry while 10 DHS keep it all cool.

Description

Responding to a call from their front-line forces for more artillery support, the brass in the LCAF ordered this Bellerophon put into production. The BEL-4S uses the cutting-edge Thunderbolt missile system to provide clean and simple indirect fire support for front-line combatants. Armed with a simple loadout of twin Thunderbolt-15s and a solitary ER Large Laser, the BEL-4S stays in the fight for a long time thanks to its 5 tons of ammo and 11 DHS. 11.5 tons of armor shield the fragile XL Engine that moves the mech at 64kph, fast enough to get to indirect-fire range against just about anything.

Description

Bellerophon was a great hero, famed for many amazing deeds and for doing many incredible things. This mech is not that hero. This mech was driven by a man named Johnny Lumpkin or, as his fans called him, Blockhead. The name bled into his mech. Despite Johnny's unincredible name, he piloted an incredible mech, armed with a Thunderbolt-20 and an ER PPC Shotgun, capable of dealing incredible damage at any range. Blockhead outlived its owner and has been traded around ever since.
