Description

The Bombard-010 is the original model of the mech, which suffered a humiliating defeat in the Solaris VII arenas it was made for that prompted the -013. Still, the -010 packs a powerful punch, with a pair of massive Autocannon/20s for primary firepower. To carry such weapons at the mech's 50 ton weight, a very slow XL engine is required. The mech also has no backup weaponry: it's all or nothing with the AC/20s.

Description

The ponderous Bombard favors the all or nothing approach, prioritizing overwhelming firepower over speed. Little more than a walking turret, the Bombard packs a heavy weight punch for its fifty-ton weight, relying on it overwhelming its targets before its pathetic mobility can be exploited, a trade off only a few MechWarriors were willing to consider. The BMB-013 sports a pair of Thunderbolt 15s and a pair of ER Medium Lasers for close-range back-up.

Description

Designed for more of a military application, the Bombard-018 is an attempt to make the mech combat-viable outside of an arena. Armed with a quartet each of Mech Mortar/4s and ER Medium Lasers, the BMB-018 is capable of a withering barrage of varied munitions and can fairly quickly reduce unprepared opponents to rubble. Unlike its progenitor, the BMB-018 also moves at a more respectable medium mech speed, clocking in at 64 kph. The 10 tons of armor is respectable though the extensive ammo stores and XL engine make the mech moderately fragile.

Description

Designed to fix a common complaint with the Bombard-010, the -020 replaces the autocannons with a pair of Gauss Rifles. Fed by two tons of ammo each, the rifles have plenty of endurance for the mech's expected arena fights. To get the mammoth guns onto the frame, the slow speed and XL engine had to be kept while armor protection was reduced by two tons. Still, for such a light mech the Bombard has an incredibly dangerous punch at extreme ranges.

Description

Bombards are a lot of things: slow, fragile, way too heavily armed. What they are not, generally speaking, is functional mech designs. This one bucks tradition then because it actually basically works as a mech, somehow. Unlike other Bombards, which usually focus on two of the same weapon type for firepower, Tsar Bomba instead opts for a mixed loadout of an Inner Sphere-spec LB-10X Autocannon and a Clan-spec ATM-12. A pair of odd-looking ER Medium Lasers round out the firepower.
