Description

The Confederation experimented with a Cataphract variant carrying the Electronic Warfare Equipment that was mounted on the Raven which was being designed around the same time. It was equipped with a single PPC and Autocannon/5, as well as two arm mounted Medium Lasers, the EW equipment, and a Small Laser in the center torso. A single shipment of CTF-0X prototypes was sent to Sian but line production did not commence afterwards because a request for more EW components was denied.

Description

A powerful tip of the spear mech from Periphery Armory, Inc, the CTF-1PA carries an eclectic loadout: a Heavy Cannon and Reloading Rocket Launcher 10 provide burst power, a Heavy Rifle provides staying power, three Chemical Lasers (two Medium, one Small) give some close-range defense, and a Mech Grenade Launcher with three tons of ammo provides some utility punch. Powered by PAI's trademark Jury-Rigged XL and coated in Heavy Plating Armor for that extra bit of defense, the CTF-1PA is a workhorse mech that'll never let you down. HPG us your order today!

Description

We call the Cataphract a "FrankenMech" because it's got a little bit of everything stitched together on it. The 1X model works well at medium-long to closer range, with good armor and weaponry.

Description

The 2X replaces the PPC with a heavy laser, while the arm-mounted medium lasers are removed in favor of a SRM-4. This reduction in heat load also allows for the removal of 2 heat sinks and adding armor in their stead.

Description

The Cataphract-3AA is a niche variant intended for anti-infantry, anti-vehicle, and anti-air operations. With a trio of LB-5X autocannons and two Machine Gun arrays, it can quickly find the weak points in any armored vehicle, decimate infantry platoons, and cause catastrophic control surface failures in Aero assets. It can also defend itself in physical combat with its augmented arm myomers.

Description

The Cataphract is one of the first original designs since the start of the Succession Wars and the -3D is its full power variant compared to the -1X's prototype state. The -3D carries a pair of powerful autocannons, an Ultra 5 and an LB-X 10, and backs them up with a brace of Medium Lasers. For power it carries a massive XL engine and for mobility it carries a set of jump jets.

Description

Produced by the Capellans based on stolen Davion designs, the 3L is an upgraded version of the Cataphract-1X. It is propelled by an XL Engine with MASC instead of jump jets. While it is also armed with an LB-X Autocannon/10 as its primary weapon this is instead matched with a ER PPC for powerful striking capabilities at long range. Other differences include the use of four Medium Pulse Lasers and double heat sinks in place of the standard models.

Description

Created by the Kuritans to serve as a carrier for the newly developed C3 system, the CTF-4K has served ably, if without distinction. The mech carries a C3 Master Computer as its primary focus. Supporting weapons include a Large X-Pulse Laser, an ER PPC, and three Medium Lasers. A Laser AMS and Beagle Active Probe provide some extra support for the mech in the field. 12 tons of armor keeps the mech well protected, allowing it to continue providing support to its lancemates.

Description

The CTF-4X is the latest variant of this prototype 'Mech. The 4X downgrades the Engine, making for a slower ride, but adds more long range firepower with two Autocannon 5s, a Large Laser and LRM5.

A personalized design, driven by a mechwarrior named Scorch, this Cataphract has been tuned up with some advanced technology to be a solid brawling design.

Description

A personal retrofit by the legendary FedCom pilot Grigori Kovalenko and named after the even more legendary knight from ancient Terran myth, this heavily-modified Cataphract was created for two reasons: to honor his former comrades in the SLDF-originated 12th Star Guards regiment, and to retake or destroy all Cataphracts owned by the Capellan Confederation after their attempted coup of House Davion in the runup to the Fourth Succession War. After his 21-year crusade against the Capellans, Kovalenko retired from active service; after his death, Ilya went missing and only recently resurfaced, ready to carry on his crusade once more.
