Description

An early version of the Panther that is occasionally seen in the Periphery, it is armed with the ancient Tronel Large Laser in place of the PPC. This laser suffers from faulty heat exchangers and generates more heat than a standard Large Laser. Most of these have long since been retrofitted.

Description

Made as part of a backroom bet between battalion commanders in the DCMS, the PNT-9M turned out to be an actually useful design despite its oddities. Built around the idea of being the ultimate zombie mech, the Panther-9M is built around a Compact Engine that allows for the mounting of a gigantic MRM 40 in the center torso of the mech. Unfortunately, this means that it can carry no other weapons and has only limited ammunition stores as well as having no jump jets. Still, the firepower of the MRM rack is considerable, and the -9M has found limited acceptance in the wider DCMS.

Description

With the Panther's traditionally good armor and mobility, the PNT-9PA is sure to be a hit with your militias. Order today!

Description

Panther 9Rs are solid all-around 'Mechs, if a bit on the slow side. They make up for it with Jump Jets, considerable armor, and a hefty punch from their trademark PPC. They've even been used in physical slugging matches to good effect.

Description

The 10K Panther is a high tech upgrade of the 9R model introduced by the Draconis Combine. The chassis has been rebuilt using Endo Steel construction techniques and the saved weight used to add an Artemis IV fire control system to the missile launcher, as well as upgrading the PPC to a ER PPC.

Description

Another beautiful Periphery Armory, Inc design and one of their two Panthers, the PNT-11PA carries a rare (in PAI designs) XL engine instead of the typical Jury-Rigged one. Don't let the price tag fool you though, this mech is worth every c-bill. Armed with a pair of Medium Cannons, it can put out withering firepower against any foe. A SRM-4 backs up the cannons in case the target survives their barrage. Panther armor keep the mech up and running without issue.

Description

Flush with Draconis Combine salvage from various skirmishes, the Lyran Commonwealth has always been lost as to what to do with the disliked Panther. Eventually, with the advent of the light LB-X Autocannons, an up-and-coming general came up with this, the PNT-11S. Carrying a pair of LB-2X Autocannons for ranged fire support, the -11S can put down suppression fire at extreme range and do so virtually endlessly thanks to two generous tons of ammo. For close range protection the -11S carries the typical Panther SRM-4. A XL engine powers the mech and 4 jump jets keep it mobile on the ever-changing battlefield.

Description

The Panther-C is a minor modification of the -10K, retaining that mech's weapons and armor profiles. All that changes is that the Panther-C drops the ArtemisIV system in favor of a C3 slave system to better integrate into the Combine's military doctrine.

Description

Description

The Panther PNT-SB is a rare variant, using the newly invented Binary PPC, or Bleeper, as its primary firepower. The Bleeper provides extreme firepower at good range, giving this Panther unexpected teeth. For backup, the PNT-SB has a single Streak SRM-4. 4 jump jets and, unusually for a Panther, double heat sinks round out the design.
