Description

After the Lao Hu was introduced to the battlefield by House Liao, it was inevitable that some of them would find their way into the hands of other Great Houses. Indeed, House Marik specifically salvaged a number of Lao Hus. However, at the time, the FWLM didn't need a cavalry mech but did need artillery support, thus the Lao Hu LHU-2A. Swapping out all the weaponry, the -2A carries an Arrow IV artillery system as its primary system. A pair of ER Large Lasers serves as backup for the Arrow. The LHU-2A is an able, if unimpressive, weapon in House Marik's arsenal.

Description

The Lao Hu (Tiger) is based on the Thunder BattleMech and is designed to correct perceived flaws in the Thunder by using new technologies available to the Capellan Confederation. The Lao Hu is built on a lightweight Endo Steel that carries a 375 XL Engine which gives the 'Mech a top speed of 86.4 km/h while sacrificing some survivability for more free weight and a heavier weapons payload. For long-range combat, the Lao Hu has a ER Large Laser and a LRM-15 launcher, giving the 'Mech a powerful long range punch. For close combat, the Lao Hu has a devastating LB-X Autocannon/20 which is capable of firing both solid rounds for armor penetration and cluster rounds allowing it to find holes in already damaged armor.

The Lao Hu LHU-3B downgrades the LRM rack to a 10 and the LB-20X to a LB-10X Autocannon in order to carry a C3 Master unit, to let the Lao Hu serve as the core of its unit and coordinate efforts across the battlefield.

Description

The Lao Hu (Tiger) is based on the Thunder BattleMech and is designed to correct perceived flaws in the Thunder by using new technologies available to the Capellan Confederation. The Lao Hu is built on a lightweight Endo Steel that carries a 375 XL Engine which gives the 'Mech a top speed of 86.4 km/h while sacrificing some survivability for more free weight and a heavier weapons payload. The 3C is intended to spar with its enemies at long range. The 'Mech replaced the LB 20-X AC with a powerful Gauss Rifle. Additionally, the 3C removed the LRM-15 in favor of three LRM-5 launchers, giving it the same firepower but allowing it to spread it over a greater number of targets.

Description

Designed by House Liao after making a bargain with a mercenary command that had plentiful supplies of the newly minted Multi-Missile Launcher system, the Lao Hu LHU-3M proved a success on the battlefield and on the market and quickly became a favorite among regiment commanders who prized its flexibility. The LHU-3M keeps the Lao Hu's traditional speed but completely changes the weapons: a pair of MML-9 and a trio of MML-5 launchers, with 7 total tons of ammo, give the mech unparalled flexibility. A pair of Medium Lasers provide token energy support.
