Description

The Whitworth is something of an ugly duckling, known among both critics and fans as the Whitworthless. It was originally produced in 2610 as a BattleMech that was meant to fill the weight gap between the lighter Wasp and the heavier Phoenix Hawk 'Mechs despite being slower than both. Its 8 tons of armor and four reliably jump jets combined with simple no-frills effective firepower to give the Whitwoth plenty of staying power. The Whitworth carries as its primary weapons two LRM-10 launchers with one ton of ammo, one in each side torso. A trio of Medium Lasers rounds out the mech's loadout.

The original production model of the Whitworth prior to its service in the Star League armies. The two LRM-10 missile launchers are replaced with two SRM-6 launchers and four additional heat sinks, allowing the MechWarrior better heat management capabilities. However since this loadout encourages a close combat approach for which the 'Mech is grossly ill-equipped.

Description

The Whitworth is something of an ugly duckling, known among both critics and fans as the Whitworthless. It was originally produced in 2610 as a BattleMech that was meant to fill the weight gap between the lighter Wasp and the heavier Phoenix Hawk 'Mechs despite being slower than both. The WTH-2 Whitworth is a very basic upgrade of the original design introduced in 3050 in response to the Clan invasion. Two Medium Lasers have been removed from the 'Mech and replaced with Artemis IV fire control systems for the LRM-10 launchers making it deadlier at long ranges in exchange for short range defense capabilities.

It was originally produced in 2610 as a BattleMech that was meant to fill the weight gap between the lighter Wasp and the heavier Phoenix Hawk 'Mechs despite being slower than both. This variant of the Whitworth introduced in 3068 upgrades the WTH-1S Whitworth. The chassis has been redesigned to use Endo Steel construction techniques and one of the Medium Lasers have been downgraded to a Small Laser. The SRM-6s were removed and the fourteen single heat sinks were upgraded to ten double heat sinks. The saved weight was used to add four Streak SRM-4 launchers, a C3 Slave Unit, and CASE to protect the 'Mech from ammunition explosions.

Description

Often, Whitworths are called ''worthless'' because of an ill-fitting stigma against the design. Knowing that, this arena design was made to redeem the old Whitworth and bring it back into the limelight. Nicknamed The Worthwhile, this mech flips the script on the Whitworth by focusing heavily on energy weapons with only token missile backup. A pair of Clan Large Pulse Lasers give The Worthwhile heavy firepower against anything it faces, while a pair of Rocket Launcher-15s are a nice surprise sucker punch.

The WTH-WW can only be found as an enemy duelist in Game Worlds contracts.
