It's 3040, the fires of the Succession Wars have begun to dwindle and in the shadows of the embers a FedCom ship on return from a covert mission into Draconis Combine territory is set upon by pirates. The crew dead, it's cover of merchant cargo stolen; the AFFC Ardent Endeavour drifted listlessly (and lifelessly) in space. Until a small company strength Mercenary Unit named 'Paving Company' emerged nearby. It's commander, 1st Captain Todd "Motormouth" McDirby, would stumble upon the hidden CASE schematics, and one fateful (if as yet unfinished) 'Mech Blueprint. The Layman.

Motormouth would eventually trade the CASE tech to companies in exchange for large sums of C-Bills, using regular auctions held for the highest bidder. Using these funds to hire a team of specialists, he would later develop the then unfinished Layman, found his own small company, and then sell the factories to Defiance Industries for a mint. He would later sell the blueprint to Kallon Industries. Although Defiance tried to sue him, it was explicitly stated in the contract Defiance had only purchased the complex in the Free Rasalhague Republic, including the computer with the schematics, but not the schematics themselves. Defiance would alter pay Motormouth in a settlement for a copy of the rights to produce the 'Mech, meaning that both Kallon and Defiance would both technically have the right to produce the 'Mech

Motormouth would retire to his own planet, only to have it razed shortly after the Clan Invasion by Smoke Jaguars for unknown... 'reasons'



The Layman has two models built from each of it's owners. Both are built on a TYPE-0036 chassis, but the power plant, armor, weapons and such vary wildly between the Kallon Industries version and the Defiance Industries version. The Layman's primary load-out is a single Large Laser for long-range direct fire, as well as an LRM-15 for long-range indirect fire. An SRM-6 and a pair of Medium Lasers would round out it's close range armament, while a pair of MGs would provide additional Anti-Infantry support. An Ejection Seat would allow the pilot to escape in an emergency.

Oops. I forgot about the Thunderbolt.


Is a 60-ton Thunderbolt a good thing?

EDIT: Or was that just mocking sarcasm? I'm confused. I wasn't aware of the Thunderbolt's design when I made this. Is it an improvement?

Just having some fun. I've lost count of the number of "all-purpose" 'Mechs I've designed only to realize I've re-invented the T-Bolt.
