Description

A second-line Clan 'Mech feared by many Inner Sphere pilots. Plans to replace the King Crab's loadout with clusters of Large Lasers grew from a shortage of autocannon ammunition and gave rise to a lighter and leaner new design, the Supernova. With average assault mech mobility enhanced by a trio of jump jets, the Supernova uses cheap components to maximum effect. The Supernova's only armaments are six Clan ER Large Lasers. While this is a fair amount of firepower for a 'Mech of its size, it has a severe overheating problem. After firing no more than a few full consecutive salvos the Supernova will force an automatic shutdown, so MechWarriors must carefully manage their heat.

Description

A second-line Clan 'Mech feared by many Inner Sphere pilots. Plans to replace the King Crab's loadout with clusters of Large Lasers grew from a shortage of autocannon ammunition and gave rise to a lighter and leaner new design, the Supernova. With average assault mech mobility enhanced by a trio of jump jets, the Supernova uses cheap components to maximum effect. Created by Clan Nova Cat after their Abjuration, this variant uses Endo Steel and increased armor protection. The first variant replaces four of the ER Large Lasers and many of their attendant heat sinks with four ATM 9s, six tons of ammunition, and adds an advanced Targeting Computer to guide the remaining pair of lasers.

Description

Originally, the Supernova was intended as a replacement for aging SLDF-spec King Crabs but the loadout ended up moving towards ER Large Lasers due to shortages in early Clan inventories. However, this Supernova, the Boiler, seeks to return to that original design, effectively making it a King Crab IIC. Armed with twin Ultra Autocannon/20s as well as a shoulder mounted Large Pulse Laser and LRM-15, the Boiler heavily resembles the King Crab. It even emulates that mech's famous ammunition limiots, with a mere three tons for the UAC/20s. Still, it's enough for the arenas and the Boiler has developed a brutal reputation.

Special Note: The Supernova SNV-P is a custom Community Content 'mech.

Description

Designed by a Diamond Shark engineer who had devised the Ultra LBX ACs in secret as a way of advancing up the ranks of the merchant caste, the Supernova SNV-P was intended for operations on high temperature worlds where the weapons would run cool and provide extended operation without issue. The Supernova SNV-P carries twin ULBX-5s and triple ULBX-2s, with only a lonely pair of ATM-3s backing up the autocannons. 9 total tons of ammo keep the weapons firing in most circumstances, though a little prudence is recommended with the ultra functionality of the ACs as the ammo bins aren't extensive.
