Quickdraw 4Gs are among the fastest and most maneuverable of heavy 'Mechs, with decent weaponry. They suffer from problematic heat buildup when using all their features at once, so some caution is needed.


Bonuses

Mech Quirk: Improved Communications

+3 increased resolve gain for all lance members, increases pilot maximum resolve capacity by 15


Pilot Affinity: Encouraging

Description

The Quickdraw 5A was designed to give the 'Mech more endurance than the stock 4G. By removing the LRM-10, two additional Medium Lasers and four additional Heat Sinks could be mounted. Unfortunately, the 5A still runs too hot for most pilots.

Description

The 5K Quickdraw is an upgraded variant using Star League technology produced for the Draconis Combine. Carrying the same weaponry as the 5A model, its use of seventeen double heat sinks solves the problem of excessive waste heat. It also uses Ferro-Fibrous armor, giving the 5K superior armor protection to the 5A model, with no added weight.

Description

Designed to make use of both new and old technologies, the Quickdraw-6C is an experimental Capellan design. It has normal Quickdraw speed and maneuverability but is augmented by a Supercharger for good measure. It uses this boosted speed to bring a Rotary Autocannon/2 and a Binary Laser Cannon to the fight and from any angle the MechWarrior desires, making the -6C a dangerous flanker. Despite the mech's obvious capabilities, it was passed over by the CCAF and eventually found its way to the open market, where mercenaries picked up the mech in large numbers.

Description

An updated Quickdraw more to the flavor of the typical FWL military doctrine, the 6M employs a massive 360XL fusion engine propelling it to speeds usually only seen in light and medium 'Mechs. Paired Extended-Range Large Lasers make for a potent sniper, able to relocate quickly and support heavier elements. More than nine tons of Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor and a Laser Anti-Missile System ensure the 6M has excellent battlefield endurance, and the Targeting Computer in the head ensures its firepower goes right where it's pointed.

Description

A modification of the QKD-5K, the -C simply switches a Medium Laser for a C3 slave unit to better allow the Quickdraw to link up with fellow Combine mechs in a C3 net. Otherwise, it is the same as the -5K.

Description

Supposedly based on the personal mech of Ivy Upsalom, a Succession Wars pirate also called The Ladykiller, the IV-Four boasts very rare technology for the Succession Wars, leading some to believe this is just gladiatorial embellishment at play. A pair each of AC/5s, SRM-6s, and Medium Pulse Lasers provide firepower at all ranges while an XL engine and double heat sinks keep the mech running.


Bonuses

Mech Quirk: Improved Communications

+3 increased resolve gain for all lance members, increases pilot maximum resolve capacity by 15


Mech Quirk: Hero Mech

+1 accuracy with ranged weapons, -6 heat at the end of the turn, +2 increased resolve gain


Pilot Affinity: Encouraging

Factions

The QKD-IV4 can only be found as an enemy duelist in Game Worlds contracts.
