Description

The 734 Highlander emphasizes its role as an urban combat 'Mech, produced by the Lyran Alliance in the wake of the civil war. The Gauss Rifle has been replaced with a massive LB-X Autocannon/20, the medium lasers have been upgraded to ER Medium Lasers, the SRM-6 was upgraded to a streak version with another Streak SRM-6 launcher added, as well as an ER Large Laser. Upgrading the standard fusion engine to a new Light Engine and removing the LRM-20 launcher allowed these changes.

Description

Built as a testbed model for the newly created Silver Bullet Gauss Rifle, the HGN-739 proved an able combatant and remain in active production. Built on a Light Fusion Engine and mounting 15 double heat sinks, the -739 carries an eclectic weapon mix. The aforementioned Silver Bullet Gauss Rifle is backed up by a trio of Medium X-Pulse Lasers for close combat and a MRM-30 covers the middle distances. Equipped with the Highlander's standard jump jets and a huge amount of armor, the -739 is a threat at any range.

Description

Rhonda Snord was known for a lot of things: being the daughter of Cranston Snord, being the CO of Snord's Irregulars, being a real bad-ass. But she was also known for this, Heavy Metal, a personalized Highlander. On paper, Heavy Metal appears to be similar to a Royal Highlander from the Star League era: Gauss Rifle, LRM-20, SRM-6, three Medium Lasers. However, the XL 275 engine and the curious addition of 5 hard-wired prototype improved jump jets says otherwise, to say nothing of the death metal screaming from the speakers around the cockpit during combat.

Description

This classic Highlander 732b has clearly been extensively modified, perhaps a transitory model between the Inner Sphere and Clan IIC model? It has been passed through many owners, Clan, ComStar, and mercenary alike, and it bears hallmarks of tinkering by all of them, from the twin Snub Gauss Rifles, Artemis suite missile systems, and ComStar C3 Master electronics. The old name was scratched off the side due to battle damage, but it remains a powerful BattleMech, Commander.
