Description

The original Archer prototype built for the Terran Hegemony in 2458 with Primitive Technology. It was slower than the successor ARC-2R variant with a top speed of 54 km/h with the inclusion of a Primitive Engine. Its loadout was somewhat similar, with the frame housing a pair of LRM-20's and 4 tons of ammunition, but only mounted two Medium Lasers, one in each fully-articulated arm. It was protected by 16 tons of Primitive Armor. At the time, it was praised for its reliability and ease of maintenance, although in combat produced far more excess heat than the machine could handle if all weapons were fired - a similar issue carried over to the later Archer.

Description

The 2K Archer was a modification built for House Kurita in 2856. The 'Mech replaced the LRM-20 launchers with LRM-15 launchers and removed all of the medium lasers along with some armor. They used this extra weight to add a Large Laser in each arm and two heat sinks.

Description

Introduced in 2474, the ARC-2R Archer became one of the best-known and most widely-used BattleMechs available. Though many were destroyed or dismantled for spare parts, they remained a common sight in the Great House armies, and has been a staple of Inner Sphere armies ever since.

Description

Equipped with Star League technology, the 2Rb variant of the Archer was built for SLDF Royal units starting in 2752. Built on an Endo Steel internal structure, this variant dropped one of the rear-firing medium lasers and one ton of ammunition to equip the LRM-20s with Artemis IV fire control systems and CASE. The 2Rb also used ten double heat sinks to keep the 'Mech cool.

Description

The 2S was another modification made to allow the Archer to defend itself more easily against an enemy that managed to close range with it. Built for House Steiner in 2915, the 2S replaced the LRM-20 launchers with two LRM-15 launchers and used the saved weight to add two SRM-4 launchers, carried in either side torso along with one ton of ammunition per launcher, giving it additional short range firepower.

Description

Carrying a pair of SRM-4s in place of two medium lasers, this was the trademark subvariant used by the Wolf's Dragoons, which they produced in the assembly plant aboard their space station Hephaestos until its destruction in 3028. It was once stated by Jaime Wolf that all of the Dragoons' Archers were of this variant.

Description

The Archer. One of the most famous BattleMechs in history. A mainstay of every Inner Sphere army, the Archer also came to the Sanctuary Worlds and serves in their armies, same as the Inner Sphere. The Archer ARC-3B is an unusual twist on indirect fire support. Armed with a brace of Bombard Cannons (twin 12-tube launchers and four 3-tube launchers), the -3B brings an unusual bent to the typically missile-focused Archer. Up close, only 2 Twin-Linked Lasers provide support. 7 tons of SHIELD protected ammo keep the Bombards firing while plentiful Heat Controllers and Negators try to manage the heat produced.

Description

The Archer. One of the most famous BattleMechs in history. A mainstay of every Inner Sphere army, the Archer also came to the Sanctuary Worlds and serves in their armies, same as the Inner Sphere. The Archer ARC-3M carries an almost purely missile loadout. Armed with twin VRM-18s and quad DRM-4s, the ARC-3M is quite capable of devastating enemies at long and short range alike. However, it is heavily ammunition dependent even though it does have a pair of Small Electro-Lasers as ammo-free firepower. Still, the power of the mech is often worth the trade-offs to Sanctuary commanders and the variant remains popular.

The Archer ARC-3S carries the biggest missile weapon in the Sanctuary Worlds arsenal, the Sirocco artillery system. Armed exclusively with two Siroccos, the -3S only can provide artillery support but it provides it extremely well. 6 tons of ammo keep the weapons firing at all times, while 13 Sanctuary DHS try (and fail) to keep the weapons cold.

Description

After the Arrow IV Artillery System was rediscovered by House Liao in the late 3040s, the race was on to disover an appropriate platform for the weapon. While House Liao ultimately settled on the Catapult as its Arrow platform of choice, there were experiments with other chassis, including the venerable Archer. Dubbed the ARC-4A, this variant carries a pair of Arrow IV launchers, one in each side torso. For backup firepower it carries the standard quartet of Medium Lasers. Endo-Steel and an XL engine provide the necessary tonnage for the heavy artillery and its four tons of ammo.

Description

An upgrade using rediscovered Star League technology, the 4M was built built on Calloway VI by Earthwerks for the Free Worlds League. It used an Endo Steel chassis to free up weight for a number of improvements. It carried an additional half-ton of armor and utilized ten double heat sinks for added heat dissipation capabilities. The 'Mech also upgraded its twin LRM-20 launchers by adding Artemis IV fire control systems to the launchers and incorporated CASE to protect the four tons of missile ammo.

Description

Built by ComStar for the brutal Battle of Tukayyid, the Archer-5CS would prove extremely adept at punishing Clan aggression. Armed with a quartet of LRM-15s, all linked to an ArtemisIV fire computer, the ARC-5CS was more than capable of raining down death on any target it could get locks on. A paltry pair of Medium Lasers back up the missile racks though, meaning the mech struggled up-close for defense. Plentiful ammo bins keep the LRMs firing at all times. The -5CS proved able enough that ComStar kept it in production after Tukayyid.

Description

Built by the GKT Enterprise factory on Satalice for the Free Rasalhague Republic, the 5R bore similarities to the 2K model of the Archer. It carried a pair of LRM-15 launchers but mounted two ER Large Lasers, one in either arm, in place of the medium lasers. It also linked Artemis IV fire control systems to the launchers and utilized twelve double heat sinks to improve waste heat dissipation. Despite being built around an Endo-Steel chassis, these improvements necessitated a decrease in armor protection by two tons.

Description

The 5S variant of the Archer, built out of Defiance Industries, was the official variant for the Armed Forces of the Federated Commonwealth. The 5S upgraded the engine to a 280 XL Engine. The 5S also reduced the LRM-20 launchers to LRM-15s. This saved weight was used to add two Streak SRM-2 launchers, one in each arm and fed by two tons of reloads in the side torsos. They also upgraded the four medium lasers to Medium Pulse Lasers. Finally, the 'Mech carried a Narc Missile Beacon launcher in its left torso. All of the ammunition carried by the 5S was protected by CASE.

Description

The 5W was an upgrade of the 2W variant, and was produced for the Wolf's Dragoons by Bowie Industries. Done in an orbital 'Mech repair facility which was converted into a 'Mech assembly line, the 'Mech was upgraded with an XL Engine to save weight and used ten double heat sinks for greater heat dissipation. It retained the two LRM-20 launchers but replaced all other weaponry with one TharHes Blue SRM-4 launchers in each arm and a Narc Missile Beacon launcher in the center torso. The 5W was supplied with four tons of LRM reloads, and two tons of SRM reloads, all carried in the CASE-protected side torsos.

Description

Created to take advantage of some cutting edge weapons technology, the Archer-6Q is an unusual beast. Most Archers are LRM support mechs, but the -6Q was designed for arena fighting on Solaris VII and so had to be flashier than plain-jane LRMs. To that end, it carries a pair each of Thunderbolt 10 and Thunderbolt 5 launchers. Together, this gives it nearly the same indirect fire capability but in a more arena-friendly package. For close range fights, the -6Q comes with four Medium X-Pulse Lasers and an ER Small Laser. 13 double heat sinks struggle to keep the mech's heat under control.

Description

A Periphery modification of the venerable Archer built by VMI out of New Vandenburg in the Taurian Concordat, the Archer ARC-6W turns to older, proven, technologies for grit. The primary weapons are, perhaps surprisingly, a quartet of Medium Lasers in the arms. For incredible one-shot power though, the -6W carries an overwhelming 180 Rocket Launcher tubes split between the torsos that give it the power to instantly kill just about anything. But it can only do it once, so be careful using it.

Description

Built for the Capellan Confederation by Earthwerks in the 3060s, the 7L variant of the Archer incorporated new Stealth Armor and a Guardian ECM Suite for protection against enemy electronics in addition to making the Archer harder to target. The 'Mech carried twelve and a half tons of Stealth Armor and was armed with two LRM-20 launchers with Artemis IV pods and two ER Medium Lasers. The tradeoff for this massive upgrade was that the 'Mech's top speed was reduced to 54 km/h. In an attempt to compensate for this, the 'Mech also had three jump jets mounted, making it capable of jumping up to ninety meters at a time.

Description

Designed for sale to the Word of Blake, the Archer ARC-8M is one of a number of the so-called 'Project Phoenix' variants developed in the late 3060s. Built on Calloway VI by Earthwerks, the -8M's armament consists of the classic paired LRM battery using LRM-15s, as well as an array of Diverse Optics lasers in the form of a pair of ER Medium Lasers and a centerline ER Large Laser. Despite being ordered for the Word of Blake, some examples have been spotted in the hands of the Free Worlds League, the Capellan Confederation and the Magsitracy of Canopus

Description

Named for Morgan Kell's pirate lover, customized with LosTech he recovered from the Periphery before his return in 3006. Identical to the standard ARC-2R in most respects, the addition on an Endo Steel frame frees up the weight for a Guardian ECM suite and two extra heat sinks, all of which are upgraded to double heat sinks boosting the Tempest's endurance.

Description

A Clan-tech retrofit of the standard Star League Defense Force ARC-2R Archer and intended for second-line and solahma troops, the Archer C replaced all Inner Sphere weaponry with their Clan counterparts without modifying any structural components. The Archer C mounted a pair of LRM-20s, capable of launching Swarm LRM munitions, and a quartet of ER Medium Lasers.

Description

A Civil War-era alternate configuration to the Archer C, the C 2 mounts two LRM-20s with Artemis IV as its primary weapon group. Taking inspiration from the ARC-2S, the Archer C 2 also mounts a pair of Streak SRM-4s for close-range firepower, and a Medium Pulse Laser in each arm complete the point-defense package. Twelve double heat sinks provide adequate heat dissipation, but operators should be wary of this variant's propensity to overheat itself with repeated alpha strikes.
