Description

The original Imp, introduced in 2793, carries an ER PPC and Medium Pulse Laser in the right and left torso. Supporting these weapons are 2 Medium Pulse Lasers mounted in the center torso and a Small Laser in the head. The left arm mounts another Medium Pulse Laser, while the right arm carries an Artemis IV enhanced LRM-20. The engine is a standard fusion model, and the missile ammunition is protected by CASE. This version was the original Imp design specified by Nicholas Kerensky and was intended for battlefield commanders.

Description

Similar to the Imp 1A variant, this model trades the Medium Pulse Lasers for Medium Lasers. It also trades the head mounted Small Laser for a Medium Pulse Laser. It keeps the ER PPCs and LRM-20 and Artemis IV system. The biggest change is the addition of a Guardian ECM suite in the 'Mech's right torso.

Description

Another early version based on the Imp 1B, this variant mounts a Gauss Rifle in the right arm. The Imp 1C uses the head mounted Small Laser of the Imp 1A in place of the Medium Pulse Laser. The Guardian ECM suite is still in the right torso. One heat sink is removed, giving the Imp 1C a total of seventeen double heat sinks.

Description

Made by a mechtech with too much time on his hands, the IMP-1X is a bit of an odd duck. Normally, Imps are all about energy weapons with a sprinkling of missiles. This mech though is all about the ballistics. Armed with a grab bag of autocannons and lasers, the -1X is a bit of an odd duck. For primary firepower the -1X has a trio of Light AC/5s, giving solid damage at middle ranges. For backup, it has a huge LB-20X Autocannon that devastates anything up close. A quartet of Medium Lasers give no-frills firepower, and a battery of Small Pulse, Small X-Pulse, and standard Small Lasers decimate infantry.

Description

A rare but effective redesign of the venerable Imp, the IMP-5E switches the mech from direct fire support to indirect, making heavy use of LRM racks for long-range bombardment. The -5E is armed with three LRM-20 racks, with 6 tons of ammo between them, which is enough for most engagements though a little thin for extended fights. For backup weapons, the -5E has a paltry three Medium Lasers, making it vulnerable to up-close assaults. 15 double heat sinks keep the heat firmly in check and the Imp's usually rugged armor ensures it weathers return fire with little issue.
