Description[edit]

The Procyon is the first ProtoMech designed and built by Clan Coyote. After the destruction of Clan Smoke Jaguar, Clan Coyote was one of the first to acquire the ProtoMech technology. As part of the rearmament and development plan instituted by Khan Koga, the Clan's scientists and technicians began working on a new ProtoMech that would eventually become the Procyon. After three years of testing, the Procyon entered service.[4]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

A pair of ER Small Lasers makes the Procyon one of the best armed ProtoMechs available. With their ammunition independence and decent range and damage potential, the standard Procyon can inflict as much damage as an Elemental.

Variants[edit]

Clan Coyote techs created several variants of the Procyon to keep their opponents off guard.

  • Procyon 2 
    Removes the heat sinks and small lasers and replaces them with a pair of LRM-4 launchers and some additional armor. This design has no other weapons and limited ammunition. BV (2.0) = 235[5]
  • Procyon 3 
    Replaces the ER Small Lasers with a Heavy Small Laser and an LRM-3 with six reloads. BV (2.0) = 163[6]
  • Procyon 5 
    Carries jump jets and replaces one ER Small Laser with an SRM-2 with five reloads. BV (2.0) = 196[8]
  • Procyon (Quad) 
    This extensive revamp of the Procyon is a new Clan Hell's Horses design. Using an advanced Quad ProtoMech chassis, it weighs six tons and carries a pair of AP Gauss Rifles supported by an SRM-2 with five reloads. Like it's bipedal cousin, it has a top speed of 96 km/h. BV (2.0) = 205[9]
