Description

The Wyvern was designed in 2660 as an urban warfare BattleMech for the Star League Defense Force. While considered slow when compared to other medium 'Mechs, and indeed vulnerable if forced to engage in open country, the Wyvern quickly proved itself to be one of the best urban combatants ever built. The Wyvern's rugged construction, thick armor, and eclctic weapon mix (a Large Laser, twin Small Lasers, a SRM-6, and LRM-10) ensured that the mech found use in all Successor State armies, even through the Succession Wars.

Description

The Wyvern was designed in 2660 as an urban warfare BattleMech for the Star League Defense Force. While considered slow when compared to other medium 'Mechs, and indeed vulnerable if forced to engage in open country, the Wyvern quickly proved itself to be one of the best urban combatants ever built. This upgrade, introduced concurrently with the original and utilized by the SLDF Royal brigades, uses an XL Engine for power. That change enabled an upgrade of the large laser to a pulse laser version and one of the small lasers to a Medium Laser, while an additional heat sink helps keep down the extra heat created by these weapons.

Description

The 6N Wyvern is a downgraded version of the 'Mech produced starting in 2821, with Maltex removing the Endo Steel internal structure as well as the CASE in the left and right torsos to prioritize their use on the more favored Thug. While the loss of the weight from the CASE systems somewhat offsets the weight added by losing the Endo Steel structure, the Wyvern still loses one ton of armor protection. The weapons systems, as well as the 'Mech's speed and jumping capabilities, remained unchanged, with Maltex even rerouting the LRM ammo feed during the removal of the CASE to alleviate the risk of ammunition cook-off.

Description

One of the so-called 'Clanbuster' refits developed by ComStar in 3052, the 9N takes advantage of pulse laser technology by upgrading the large laser to a Tronel XIII Large Pulse Laser and upgrades both of the small lasers to Tronel XII Medium Pulse Lasers. To facilitate this, one and a half tons of armor had to be removed and the SRM launcher has been downgraded to a highly accurate Hovertec Streak SRM-2 launcher.

Description

Produced by Maltex on their rebuilt production lines for the Com Guards, the 10N is an upgrade of the 9N that transforms the Wyvern from a brutal street fighter into a long-range sniper. The 'Mech's speed, jumping capabilities, and LRM-10 with CASE-protected ammo have been retained, but otherwise everything else has changed. The 10N carries eight tons of standard armor. The primary weapon has been changed from a large pulse laser to an ER PPC, while one of the medium pulse lasers and the Streak launcher was dropped. The Wyvern has also had a Guardian ECM Suite installed as well as an improved C3 computer to allow it to use targeting telemetry from its comrades.
