Description

This was the original Thunderbolt design produced in 2491 by Earthwerks Limited, built with Primitive Technology, until the introduction of the modern TDR-5S in 2505. It carries the exact same weapon loadout as the later TDR-5S however, making it still quite threatening.

Meanwhile its LRM15 allows it to provide a support role when needed, or to provide assistance to lancemates via indirect fire.

Description

A simple battle design from Periphery Armory, Inc, the Thunderbolt-5PA does a little bit of everything. Armed primarily with a Large Chemical Laser and a LRM-10 launcher, the TDR-5PA is well suited for ranged trades. At closer ranges a trio of Medium Chemical Lasers provide support fire. At point-blank, an Inferno Rocket Launcher-10 and a pair of Heavy Machine Guns do heavy work. The TDR-5PA is effective at all ranges, truly the Swiss Army Knife of the PAI lineup!

With an arsenal based on the 5S model, the 7M carries an LRM-15 missile launcher in the right torso, an ER Large Laser in the right arm, three medium lasers and a Streak SRM-2 launcher in the left torso, and a pair of machine guns in the left arm. Two tons of LRM reloads are kept in the right torso while one ton each of SRM and machine gun ammo are kept in the left torso. Additionally, the heat sinks have been upgraded to double heat sinks and CASE has been added to protect against ammunition explosion.

Description

The Thunderbolt-8SS is an attempt to streamline and simplify the Thunderbolt's typically eclectic loadout. It drops every weapon off the mech and replaces them all with a pair of ER PPCs with a PPC Capacitor charging them further. An Angel ECM suite keeps the mech protected while 4 jump jets keep it mobile in any terrain. 16 double heat sinks try their best to keep the mech cool but generally speaking aren't enough for aggressive pilots.

Description

This is supported at closer ranges by an SRM-6 in the left torso along with the original three medium lasers. While retaining the left arm machine guns, in the right torso it carries a pair of flamers and a Anti-Missile System.

Description

The 9SE variant of the Thunderbolt was introduced as the Eridani Light Horse's update to the 5SE. The 'Mech is armed with an LRM-10 missile launcher for long-range combat. For close to medium ranges, the 'Mech carries a Large Pulse Laser and three medium lasers. Of note is the shifting of the missile launcher and its one ton of reloads from the right-side torso to the left. The additional mobility of the 9SE comes from its four jump jets.

Special Note: The Thunderbolt TDR-PF2 "Skald" is a custom Community Content 'Mech.

Description

Lacking the capabilities of creating the Bushwacker BSW-PF1 with their existing factories, the St. Ives Compact turned to something similiar but able to be crafted locally. Turning to the rugged and enduring Thunderbolt chassis, the Compact developed this, the so-called Skald as a partner to the Bushwacker Bard. The Skald proved an able combatant and was effective in their war with the Capellan Confederation.

Description

A simple, clean, basic arena brawler variant of the Thunderbolt, the Top Dog has shown itself to be rugged and enduring, winning a dozen matches in as many weeks during one Solaris VII season. The firepower could not be simpler: a Large Laser for range and 8 Medium Lasers for close up work. Double heat sinks and an enlarged engine manage the heat smoothly.
