When the Treaty of Taurus was signed, it established the New Colony Region in co-operation between the Magistracy of Canopus and the Taurian Concordat and also created the Colonial Marshals to police this area and protect its citizens. Even with the spirit of cooperation, the most that could be provided to the Colonial Marshals were older BattleMechs in various states of disrepair. To remedy the problem, Taurus Territorial Industries was commissioned by Protector Jeffrey Calderon to build the Marshal, which would see service in both the Colonial Marshals and the Taurian Defense Force. The Marshal uses a standard internal structure and a standard Magna 220 fusion engine that gives the Marshal a top speed of 64.8 km/h while also giving the 'Mech a great deal of survivability. The Marshal's mobility is augmented with four Rawlings 55 jump jets that let it jump up to one hundred and twenty meters. For protection, the Marshal carries ten tons of Durallex Medium Ferro-Fibrous armor, giving it nearly the maximum amount of protection possible.
Weapons and Equipment
With an eye towards long isolated deployments the Marshal carries a weapons mix of mostly energy weapons. The only ammunition dependent weapons carried are two Sperry Browning Machine Guns for crowd control and anti-infantry combat and a Delta Dart LRM-5 launcher to give it some long-range firepower. The 'Mech primarily depends on its Sunglow Type 2 Large Laser for long-range firepower and a Diverse Optics Type 27 Medium Pulse Laser and a Diverse Optics Type 18 Medium Laser for short-range combat. Finally, for clearing woods and also useful as an anti-infantry weapon, the Marshal has a Hotshot Flamer.
- By switching to double heat sinks, the 2L model of the Marshal is able to upgrade the LRM-5 launcher to a much more powerful LRM-15 launcher, tripling the damage capability of the Marshals long range missile launcher and greatly increasing the Marshals combat effectiveness. BV (1.0) = 1,169, BV (2.0) = 1,313
- This is a Magistracy of Canopus variant of the Marshal, that was developed during the Jihad. This model saw introduction of a Light Fusion Engine, and some modern weaponry to the Marshal's arsenal. Right Torso's Medium Pulse Laser is retained, while a Light PPC, Plasma Rifle, and a MML-9 is introduced for ranged attacks. For dedicated anti-infantry work, the Machine Guns are exchanged for pair of Light Machine Guns in a Machine Gun Array. BV (2.0) = 1,467
