Description[edit]

The Legion assault tank was a House Steiner attempt at creating a vehicle capable of crippling or destroying BattleMechs. The factory that made these on Carver V was destroyed by mercenaries shortly after it began production, along with all operational Legion tanks on base; it is unknown if any escaped.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Legion's main armament consists of two Gauss Rifles, which give it ample long range capabilities. For closer-ranged enemies, the Legion relies on two Medium Lasers and a pair of short-range homing missile launchers, apparently a Streak SRM-2 system. All of these weapons are found in the turret. The vehicle is heavily armored on all sides except the rear, which makes it susceptible to fast or stealthy units.[1]

Variants[edit]

There are no known variants of the Legion.

Canonicity[edit]

Being mentioned only in an apocryphal source (the video game MechCommander 2), the Legion must consequentially be considered apocryphal as well.

It also appears in the non-canonical fan novel Berserkerbanden.

Notes[edit]

The vehicle's weapons include two "SRM Launchers", which equates to one SRM-4, and the fact that the missiles track their targets means it can be assumed that they are the Streak variant.
