Description

Based on the original Hermes, the Hermes II is a long time mainstay of the Free Worlds League, where it serves as the FWLM's premiere scout. Though not as fast as lighter offerings, its thick armor means that it is far more robust than most potential foes. The -2M model, also known as the 'Mercury' is a specialist model in SAFE's Dark Shadows 'Mech force, and trades out the Autocannon for a pair each of Medium Lasers and Machine Guns, and uses the leftover tonnage to increase the Mercury's ground speed to a maximum of 118 kmh.

Description

Based on the original Hermes, the Hermes II is a long time mainstay of the Free Worlds League, where it serves as the FWLM's premiere scout. Though not as fast as lighter offerings, its thick armor means that it is far more robust than most potential foes. At one point the most common alternate variant of the Hermes II, the -4K, also known as the Hermes III, replaces all of the standard model's weaponry with a pair of Large Lasers, giving it heavy firepower in return for a potentially crippling heat load.

Description

Based on the original Hermes, the Hermes II is a long time mainstay of the Free Worlds League, where it serves as the FWLM's premiere scout. Though not as fast as lighter offerings, its thick armor means that it is far more robust than most potential foes. Deployed exclusively by ComStar, the HER-5C makes use of an XL engine in addition to the -5S upgrades to mount an ER Large Laser in place of the Ultra AC and replaces the single Medium Pulse Laser with a trio of Extended Range models. The Flamer is also removed in favor of a NARC Launcher and a C3i unit was added while leftover tonnage was devoted to armor and another heat sink.

Description

Based on the original Hermes, the Hermes II is a long time mainstay of the Free Worlds League, where it serves as the FWLM's premiere scout. Though not as fast as lighter offerings, its thick armor means that it is far more robust than most potential foes. A modern day successor to the original Mercury, the -5ME Mercury Elite drops all of the -5S's weaponry in favor of a Light Gauss Rifle with two tons of ammunition. It unfortunately sheds armor to do so, making it a fragile sniper.

Description

Based on the original Hermes, the Hermes II is a long time mainstay of the Free Worlds League, where it serves as the FWLM's premiere scout. Though not as fast as lighter offerings, its thick armor means that it is far more robust than most potential foes. One of a number of upgraded chassis widely sold to the rest of the Inner Sphere, the -5S model takes advantage of new technologies such as Endo-Steel and Double Heat Sinks to increase the venerable 'Mech's payload, as it is now armed with an Ultra Autocannon/5 and a Medium Pulse Laser in place of the previous versions of those weapons while retaining the original Flamer.

Description

Based on the original Hermes, the Hermes II is a long time mainstay of the Free Worlds League, where it serves as the FWLM's premiere scout. Though not as fast as lighter offerings, its thick armor means that it is far more robust than most potential foes. Leftover spoils from the massive armament trade during the Clan Invasion, the Davion Light Guards have their own model called the -6D which replaces the Ultra Autocannon for a Rotary model and swaps the Pulse Laser for an ER model.
