Description[edit]

Originally designed for the Republic of the Sphere, the Doloire was created as the Republic Armed Forces flagship OmniMech. The Republic utilized scientists from Clan enclaves within The Republic to design the assault OmniMech as a powerful and important symbol of cooperation between all citizens, Inner Sphere and Clan.

The Doloire was first produced within The Republic in 3121, being produced by StarCorps on Terra. The design would continue into service and secretly be part of the rebuilding of the RAF behind the walls of Fortress Republic. Elements outside of Fortress, including mercenaries, remaining Republican forces, and invaders of former Republic space claimed some examples of the design.[3]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Doloire was designed using advanced forms of Clan and Inner Sphere technology of the era. Designed as an OmniMech with thirty-two tons of pod space for weapons and equipment, engineers used Endo-Composite for its chassis as well as a durable Clan 320-rated Extra Light Fusion Engine. While not the fastest among its peers on the battlefield, the 'Mech is able to handle a respectable amount of incoming fire with its nearly-fifteen tons of ArcShield VII Mk.7 standard armor.

The 'Mech's fixed armaments are a pair of Clan Series 2f Extended Range Medium Lasers mounted in the center torso. The primary configuration of the Doloire mounts a pair of highly-accurate Clan Large Pulse Lasers mounted each of the 'Mech's arms. Their accuracy is increased with the presence of Actuator Enhancement Systems placed in each arm. For long-ranged attacks, the prime configuration includes a Clan-tech Gauss Rifle with sixteen rounds of ammunition found in the right torso. To help with the 'Mech's heat, four additional Clan-made Double Heat Sinks are added to the configuration. Rounding off the primary's equipment is an Angel ECM Suite[4][5]

Alternate Configurations[edit]

  • Alt. Config. A 
    Geared towards anti-vehicle and infantry missions, the A Configuration comes with a pair of Inner Sphere Plasma Rifles mounted in the arms. The rifles draw from thirty rounds of ammunition located in the arms and left torso. An additional ER Medium Pulse Laser is added to the 'Mech's fixed laser array in the torso. A pair of Clan-built 6-Tube Short Range Missile Launchers are mounted in the right torso with four tons of ammunition, which are protected by CASE II, giving the 'Mech large degree of survivability. A Radical Heat Sink System and four additional Clan Double Heat Sinks are added to the configuration. BV(2.0)=2,336[6][7]
  • Alt. Config. B 
    The B is designed for intermediate- and long-range combat. The configuration's firepower primarily comes from a pair of Clan ER PPCs mounted in the left arm. In the right, is a Rotary Autocannon/5, drawing from four tons of CASE II-protected ammunition located in the right torso. Five additional Clan-made Heat Sinks round out the equipment for the B. BV(2.0)=3,136[8][9]
  • Alt. Config. C 
    A missile-laden configuration, the C is geared as s command vehicle that can provide fire-support, while sporting a melee weapon for when enemy combatants close on it. Its ranged weapon is a Clan-made 20-tube Long-Range Missile Launcher with an Artemis V Fire Control System in the right arm. The majority of the C's firepower comes from its three Clan Streak SRM-6 Launchers mounted in each of the legs and right torso. A singular ER Small Pulse Laser is added to the 'Mech's fixed array of ER Medium Pulses to provide backup to the missile weapons. A Lance is mounted on the left arm to give the MechWarrior more choices if 'Mechs engage the Doloire toe-to-toe. The 'Mech's three tons of LRM and two tons SRM ammunition is protected by CASE II. A C3 Master Computer is fitted to the left torso to round out the configuration's payload. BV(2.0)=2,327[10][11]
  • Alt. Config. D 
    Designed as close-range fighter, the D has an array of short-range weaponry. Crafted with the concept of crippling its intended opponent prior to destroying it, the Doloire D has pair of side torso mounted TSEMP Cannons, while its fixed ER Medium Lasers add damage to the cannon's crippling effects. A Supercharger is mounted to allow the 'Mech to close the distant in hurry so it can bring its array of four Streak SRM-4 launchers and Large Vibroblade into range for the kill. A couple of Clan-produced ER Micro Lasers mounted in each of the legs rounds out the 'Mech's weaponry. CASE II is provided to protect the 'Mech from its two tons of ammunition in case any enemy fire penetrates the armor. BV(2.0)=3,380[12][13]
