[edit] Description

The Black Lanner is a fast medium OmniMech that can take on a variety of roles. It first saw action during the Trials in the run up to the Clan Invasion, but the Inner Sphere first saw it during the Battle of Tukayyid. The front-line 'Mech makes use of all weight-saving technology available to the Clan Jade Falcon scientists who designed it, including an XL Engine, Endo Steel, and eight tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor. The Black Lanner includes a MASC system on the base chassis that enables it to run up to 151 km/h in bursts.[1]

By dawn of the Wars of Reaving, production of the Black Lanner would cease in Clan Space by 3068.[5]

[edit] Weapons and Equipment

The primary configuration of the Black Lanner is effective at all ranges. At long range, it can make use of an ER Large Laser and LRM-10. When it closes in, it can attack with a pair of ER Medium Lasers and an SRM-6 that can exploit holes in its opponent's armor. An ECM Suite protects it from many forms of electronics.[1]

[edit] Alternate Configurations

  • Alt. Config. A 
    The Black Lanner A is configured for electronic warfare and scouting. It uses an Active Probe to find hidden units, an ECM Suite to counteract enemy electronics, and a TAG spotting laser to designate targets for homing artillery. Offensively, it can call upon an ER PPC and a pair of Medium Pulse Lasers. BV (1.0) = 1,801[1][6], BV (2.0) = 2,308[7]
  • Alt. Config. B 
    This dedicated fire-support model uses a pair of LRM-20s, though they can only call upon three tons of ammunition. BV (1.0) = 1,636[1][8], BV (2.0) = 1,961[9]
  • Alt. Config. E 
    This variant uses an ATM 12 and three tons of ammunition to maintain effectiveness at all ranges. Three ER Medium Lasers provide additional firepower. BV (1.0) = 1,794[1][14] (1,804)[15], BV (2.0) = 2,331[16]
