Description

The Longbow-0C is the Primitive Longbow, made with early components before mech technology was well understood. However, the -0C carries respectable firepower for its era, though weak by modern standards. It carries a pair of LRM 20s for ranged bombardment and a pair of Medium Lasers with a Small Laser as close-range backup. In order to maintain a resonable ground speed, the mech carries a large but extremely heavy primitive 310 engine. Armor is also paltry by modern standards.

Description

To add some speed to the Longbow, the OW variant removes two Medium Lasers and five and a half tons of armor. This allowed the 255 Fusion Engine to be replaced with a larger 340, increasing the top speed of the Longbow to 64 km/h, allowing the 'Mech to keep up with most heavy 'Mechs. The -0W is otherwise the same as the -7Q variant.

Description

The Longbow, introduced in 2480, has seen service in the armies of the Inner Sphere since the days of the Star League and is one of the most well-known fire support 'Mechs in existence. As a fire-support 'Mech though, the Longbow is a trusted and reliable machine that can be counted on to carry out the mission it is designed for. The primary weapons on the Longbow are its LRM launchers, four in all, a pair of 20s and a pair of 5s, letting the Longbow put out 50 LRMs into any target it can see.

Description

The 7V variant of the Longbow upgrades the design to more modern specifications. The 'Mech is powered by an XL engine that weighs half as much as the original engine. The 'Mech also removes the two LRM-5 launchers and adds Artemis IV to the LRM-20 launchers, and CASE for added protection. For close combat, the 7V has 5 Medium Pulse Lasers. To add a little more long range firepower, the 7V has also has an ER Large Laser.

Description

The Longbow-8Q is an arena update to the old Longbow-7Q. Where that mech used LRMs for its fire support role, the -8Q switches to a combination of Thunderbolt 10 and Thunderbolt 5 launchers, backed up by a pair of Snub-Nose PPCs. The armor of the -8Q is the same as the basic -7Q, as is the speed. However, where the -7Q uses single heat sinks the -8Q uses updated double heat sinks to attempt to control the mech's waste heat though 10 of them are sadly inadequate for the task.

Description

A recent upgrade of the Longbow, the 12C variant is designed to maximize the 'Mech's fire support capabilities. The 'Mech has two LRM-20 launchers and two LRM-15 launchers, giving it an incredible bombardment capability and is capable of firing 40% more missiles down range than the base model. The 'Mech has three ER Small Lasers for close combat. The 12C variant is capable of doing this through the use of an XL engine that saves a great deal of weight.
