Description

Designed by Clan Ice Hellion in the early days of the Clans, the Drift Shag is in truth a Clan take on the old SLDF Falcon. Built for speed and armed with weapons to last, the Drift Shag is capable of smashing most opponents to pieces with its ER Small Lasers, to say nothing of the ER Large Laser or Medium Pulse Laser it carries for more serious opponents. 6 jump jets give it excellent maneuverability beyond what might normally be expected of a mech with its ground speed. The Drift Shag served the Hellions well but was eventually relegated to garrison work.

Description

Originally developed as an anti-infantry and Bug Hunter 'Mech, the Falcon is a highly popular light recon and skirmisher 'Mech. The original Falcon designed in 2582, the 4N model has a lighter arsenal more akin to 'Mechs 10 tons lighter. The primary weapon is a Medium Laser with two Small Lasers as secondary weapons. To deter infantry attacks, the 'Mech carries two Machine Guns with a shared single ton of ammo. 6 jump jets give solid maneuverability, while 12 standard heat sinks keep it all frosty.

Description

Originally developed as an anti-infantry and Bug Hunter 'Mech, the Falcon is a highly popular light recon and skirmisher 'Mech. Built for the Royal SLDF Divisions at the captured Roe Weapon Systems plant on Apollo during the Amaris Civil War, the so-called Royal Falcon carried an experimental Snub-Nose PPC backed up by two medium lasers. It was also equipped with double heat-sinks, and was built on a Endo-Steel chassis. Most known examples left with the Exodus Fleet, though a handful were retained by ComStar in their hidden army.

Description

Originally developed as an anti-infantry and Bug Hunter 'Mech, the Falcon is a highly popular light recon and skirmisher 'Mech. A so-called Pentagon Powers refit of the Royal Falcon, the FLC-4Nb-PP swaps the rare and fragile Snub-Nose PPC for a standard PPC variant. Otherwise, it retains the mobility, armor, and cooling of the Royal Falcon.

Description

Originally developed as an anti-infantry and Bug Hunter 'Mech, the Falcon is a highly popular light recon and skirmisher 'Mech. Originally developed as a field upgrade before becoming Blackwell's standard production model, the 4P Falcon carries a light arsenal that is primarily based around energy weapons. While the two Small Lasers were retained, the original Medium Laser was swapped for a short-ranged but highly accurate Medium Pulse Laser. Finally, for protection from missiles, the machine guns were dropped for a Anti-Missile System and a single ton of ammunition.
