Description

Roan Curtiss is a mech scientist but it turns out that science doesn't pay the bills very well. His custom-built designs were popular with a certain kind of clientele but that was just enough to keep the lights on, so when a major mercenary contract rolled through and he had a big payday to spend, Curtiss went all-out on a Solaris mech for himself. He only had so much cash though, so it had to be a light mech and it had to beat other light mechs. Thus, an all-energy Hollander was the ticket, with a Large Variable-Speed Pulse Laser to punish fast movers and twin ER Medium Lasers for all purpose fighting. He named it The Bug Zapper and went on to a career as a gladiator.

Description

While the Hollander was designed to carry a ridiculously large Gauss Rifle and that is the model that made it into production, there was a prior version designed for the militia on a budget. The BZK-D2 has the same speed profile and the same low armor of the BZK-F3. However, where the -F3 has Ferro-Fibrous armor and an Endo-Steel structure, the -D2 does not. Where the -F3 has a Gauss Rifle, the -D2 instead mounts an Autocannon/10 with two tons of ammo. Unlike the production model though, the -D2 has a backup Medium Laser for if the bins run empty.

Description

The Hollander was introduced in 3054 specifically to carry a Gauss Rifle into combat and act as a sniper. The Federated Commonwealth was in dire need of a response to the fast-moving, long-range firepower of the Clan Invaders at the time, and looked at a number of light 'Mech designs featuring PPCs or LRMs as a potential answer. It was Coventry's unorthodox decision to mount such a large weapon, one that had neither the overheating or ammunition explosion drawbacks of the other designs, which won them the contract. With its single massive cannon and use of rediscovered technology, the Hollander can destroy another light 'Mech in a single hit at extreme range and threaten heavier targets easily.

The F4 subvariant was built arround the Stormbreaker short range Magshot array.

Description

The G1 variant of the Hollander is built to address concerns about the Hollander's lack of back up weapons. First debuting in 3056 the 'Mech replaces the heavy Gauss Cannon with an LB-X Autocannon/10 as its primary weapon, freeing up weight to mount two Medium Lasers in its arms as backup weapons and add two tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor. The G1 is an excellent 'Mech for vehicle hunting as well as anti-aircraft use with its LB-X cluster rounds.

Description

Designed by a corporate think tank for the Federated Suns military, the BZK-H3 represents three unique takes on the traditional Hollander formula. First, instead of a large ballistic weapon the H3 carries an all-energy loadout, specifically a Heavy PPC and a pair of Medium Lasers. Second, instead of the typical standard heat sinks the Hollander traditionally relies on for its ice-cold ballistics, the H3 carries ten Double Heat Sinks. Finally, the H3 also speeds the mech up a bit to more traditional light mech speeds, maxing out around 90 kph. The mech found limited acceptance in the AFFS and was quickly released to the mercenary market.

Description

Despite the Hollander being designed and used by the LCAF, many of them fell into other hands. A pair of those hands belonged to House Kurita, who took salvaged Hollanders, stripped the Gauss Rifles, and replaced them with a more appropriate Kuritan weapon: a MRM-40 launcher. Backing up the gigantic missile box are a pair of ER Medium Lasers and a Small Laser. To free up weight for these changes, a XL Engine proved necessary.

Description

This Hollander was designed by a madman who decided that he needed artillery support but all he had was a Hollander to work with. Thus, the -T100 came to be. The Gauss Rifle and ammo of the -F3 have been removed and replaced with a Thumper Artillery Piece and two tons of ammo. Otherwise, the -T100 is the same as the stock Hollander.
