Description

Entering production in 2519 the FLE-14 Flea was an attempt to create an ultra-light BattleMech. Weighing a mere fifteen tons, it could arguably be regarded as a different 'Mech design than the true Flea. It was capable of a maximum ground speed of nearly 150km/h with a 120 meter jump capability. Its weapons and armor however were very light: Only one ton of armor protected the unit, and the single Medium Laser mounted in the right arm was barely enough to make it a viable battlefield unit.

Description

The FLE-14, the first ultra-light BattleMech ever produced, was largely regarded as a colossal failure. However, in the 3060s, House Marik returned to the design and updated it for the modern battlefield with the FLE-18. The -18 keeps the -14's high ground speed but uses an XL engine, a Small Cockpit, and Endo-Steel to save weight. That weight is put towards a quartet of ER Medium Lasers for firepower with any leftover tonnage being put directly into armor. 10 DHS keeps the mech nicely chilled. The FLE-18 proved a moderate success and went on to serve with distinction.
