|Aesir AA Vehicle|
|Armor|| Forging OTR20d
|Engine|| Omni 165
4 x LB 2-X ACs
First introduced in 3096, this post-Jihad design was created by Clan Wolf as a cheap anti-aircraft platform. Slow and heavily armored, the Aesir is often set into static positions where its relatively slow speed is not considered a liability. The design also includes CASE for added protection. In addition to its primary role of air defense, the Aesir is often utilized as a mobile gun emplacement.
While initially produced for use in Clan Wolf's second line formation, it has since spread through out the Inner Sphere. Clan Wolf in Exile also produces this design, and Clan Sea Fox is known to sell it to any interested party.
The Aesir mounts a set of four Type Sierra LB-X Autocannon/2s in its turret. With their long range, and cluster munitions, they serve as an effective counter against airborne raiders.
No variants of the Aesir are known.
Though the original Dossier for counterassault lists the Aesir as tracked, its image clearly shows the vehicle as being wheeled; assuming that the listed speed is correct, a 145 rated engine would be appropriate for a wheeled vehicle of its size.
Please note that at this time, there is no record sheet for this vehicle, thus the information is subject to change.
