Description

Taking its name from a term meaning 'Lightning War' the Blitzkrieg completely lives up to the name. The Blitzkrieg is built on a lightweight Endo Steel chassis and is powered by a 350 XL engine that gives the 'Mech a top speed of 118.8 km/h. The Blitzkrieg is primarily protected by its high speed and carries six and a half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor that is light for a 'Mech of the Blitzkriegs size. The cavernous amount of space in the Blitzkrieg allows it to carry a massive Ultra Autocannon/20. This powerful weapon combined with the 'Mechs high speed lets the Blitzkrieg truly live up to its name by bringing an immense amount of firepower to bear on a target and fading away just as quickly.

Description

The Blitzkrieg quickly gained a reputation for brutal power and speed but had a number of detractors who were unhappy about the mech's lack of options at range. The brass in the LCAF heard their soldiers complaints and ordered the, quote, 'nerds in requisitions' to do something about it. The BTZ-5F was the result and solves the range issue without compromising on the Blitzkrieg's heavy damage. The BTZ-5F replaces the UAC/20 with a Thunderbolt-20 and 4 tons of ammo. This gives the -5F strong close-range firepower while also allowing the pilot to rain down fire indirectly when no target presents itself normally. The speed, armor, and structure on the BTZ-5F match its progenitor.

Description

In need of an experimental platform, Coventry Metal Works picked out a Blitzkrieg chassis they had laying around to test out the new Lyran-made Bombast Laser. In a quirk of fate, on the same day that Coventry had the modified Blitzkrieg on the weapon ranges testing the Bombast Laser a ranking LCAF general was visiting the facility for requisition talks. He saw the modified mech on the ranges and was impressed, immediately placing an order for a dozen of them after assuming it was an up-coming design. Coventry, ever clever, rolled with it and made it a release variant. The BTZ-6F mounts twin Bombast Lasers and a battery of bonus heatsinks. The heat is tremendous but the Bombasts let the pilot 'dial in their heat' to a degree.
