Description[edit]

The Fennec is a Medium Class BattleMech that was produced for the Federated Suns in early 3080s. The design was conceived to help address the AFFS need for lighter lance level Command 'Mechs. Corean Enterprises used components from the Legionnaire to help put the design into production at its plant on Augusta. Republic of the Sphere Intelligence reports suggested that early prototypes of the Fennec were deployed in 3080 by the Davion Assault Guard in a conflict with the Taurian Concordat.[1]

The 'Mech features a C3 Master Computer, which allows it to coordinate with other C3 lance mates. 9.5 tons of Kallon Unity Weave Ferro-Fibrous armor protect the 'Mechs advanced systems and XL Fusion Engine. MechWarriors piloting the 'Mech must be mindful of the significant heat produced by its weapons and engine, as the design has only ten double heat sinks.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The 'Mechs long range weaponry consist of a pair of arm mounted Magna Hellstar PPCs, which are backed up by a pair of Medium Pulse Lasers for close combat.[1]

Variants[edit]

  • FEC-3C 
    This variant of the Fennec developed in 3087[3] uses a C3 Slave Computer instead of employing the Master Computer. Designed as a companion for the Fennec's C3 Master variant, the 'Mech employs a pair of Light PPCs in place of the pulse lasers. To help alleviate heat issues, the 'Mech has been given two additional double heat sinks[1]. BV (2.0) = 1,551[4][3]
