Description

The Fireball was a quick response BattleMech built as a direct result of the Clans' Elemental infantry. The result was a 'Mech which on paper met many of the criteria for successfully dealing with Elementals but in reality was woefully inadequate for the job. The paltry Streak SRM-2 and Machine Gun were insufficient for dealing with the Elementals, though the mech had sufficient speed to respond to any call for help across the battlefield thanks to a massive 220-rated XL engine. The Fireball eventually found a new life as a rapid scout, a role it excelled in.

Description

The 8D variant of the Fireball released in 3054 was built with the hope of reducing the Fireballs ammunition dependence as well as increasing its firepower. This is done by removing the Streak launcher and replacing it with two Medium Lasers, vastly increasing the raw firepower of the Fireball. The 'Mech has also received an additional half ton of armor.

Description

The Fireball was a quick response BattleMech built as a direct result of the Clans' Elemental infantry. The result was a 'Mech which on paper met many of the criteria for successfully dealing with Elementals but in reality was woefully inadequate for the job. The 9D is a compromise between the 7D and 8D models. Released at the same time as the 8D, this variant removes the machine gun and its ammunition and replaces them with a single medium laser. The 'Mech retains its Streak launcher, but gains an additional half ton of armor protection.
