Description

This lostech variant was used by the SLDF's Royal units. It upgraded the heat sinks to double heat sinks and utilized an Endo Steel internal structure to save mass. This enabled the addition of Artemis IV Fire Control Systems to the LRM launchers. The SRMs were replaced with four Hawk Streak SRM-2s. All of the ammunition was moved to the side torsos and protected by CASE.

Description

The 3D variant of the Crusader is a simple modification to make the 'Mech's heat load more manageable. Introduced in 2756 and used mostly by House Davion, the two SRM-6 launchers were replaced with two SRM-4 launchers and the machine guns were removed so that the number of heat sinks could be increased by four.

Description

Description

The 3L variant of the Crusader takes concepts from both the 3D and the 3K models to save weight with a twist. Built for House Liao starting in 2753, the Mech has removed the LRM-15 and SRM-6 launchers and replaced them with two LRM-10 launchers and two SRM-4 launchers. This frees up room for two additional heat sinks as well as the inclusion of four GM Jetstar jump jets, two each in either side torso, giving it a jumping distance of one hundred and twenty meters.

Description

The Crusader was initially designed as a close combat BattleMech for the Star League Defense Force, but soon proved itself to be a very adaptable, multi-role design. This reliable workhorse of the SLDF, while not excelling in any one job, was capable of accomplishing just about any mission, whether it be close assault, anti-aircraft, counter-insurgency, or even reconnaissance. Its versatility and large number of manufactures ensured the Crusader its place as one of the most common heavy Mechs in the Inner Sphere.

Description

A Star League-tech retrofit of the classic CRD-3R developed by Bander BattleMechs for the mercenary market in 3054, the 4BR switches to double heat sinks and replaces the SRM-6 launchers with a pair of Streak SRM-2s. The weight saved allows an extra ton of LRM reloads for each launcher to be carried, protected by the addition of CASE in each torso.

Description

The 5M was the official production-model upgraded variant of the Crusader for the Free Worlds League, introduced in 3049. Though using the same chassis as before the 'Mech was powered by a XL Engine and carried thirteen double heat sinks. The 5M was also capable of jumping up to one hundred and twenty meters with its four torso-mounted jump jets. The Mech was armed with two LRM-15 launchers and two medium lasers in its arms, two Streak SRM-2 launchers mounted in its legs, a Flamer and a machine gun in its right arm, and a Anti-Missile System in its head.

It varies little from the 3R model, instead removing the machine guns to make room for double heat sinks, CASE to protect the missile reloads, and the addition of a Flamer in the right arm.

Description

Designed by the Combine as a line unit for the tumultuous 3060s, the Crusader-7MK demonstrates the best and the worst of the Combine at once. The mech has respectable armor covering its powerful XL engine and sports a withering array of weapons: LRM 10s, MRM 10s, Small Pulse Lasers, and an ER PPC for good measure. The downside of the mech is that it is equipped with a mere 15 standard heat sinks meaning that it is woefully unable to vent its waste heat. Pilots have taken to calling it the Heatsader and mocking the mech relentlessly.

Description

Galen Cox was a complicated man, the personal friend of Victor Steiner-Davion and a famous warrior in his own right. His personal mech, a Crusader CRD-5M he named Stormcloud, eventually came to rest at the side of the throne of the Lyran Commonwealth after his death, where it remains today. However, imitators cropped up in the arenas after his famous win over Victor Vandegriff and Glen Edenhoffer in 3056. The imitators, also named Stormcloud, carry a modified loadout reminicient of the -5M. Twin LRM-15s and Medium Lasers remain but the SSRM-2s are replaced with a quartet of SRM-4s in the legs. The ammo is a little thin but sufficient for arena work.
