Description[edit]

The Sarath is a Medium Class Quad OmniMech, first developed exclusively for the Regulan Fiefs during the early thirty-second century. Built by Ronin Inc of Wallis, the Sarath was the former Free World League state's first OmniMech. The 'Mech was named for assumed guise of the mystic Hindu god Krishna. When it was first produced, it was considered a 'Mech of high prestige. Export of the Sarath would be barred and held exclusively for the use for the Regulan military.

However, the 'Mech gained a bad reputation due to the short-lived invasion of the Aitutaki in 3134. The 'Mech performed well, enabling the Regulans to capture the former Regulan planet. Despite great performance, the 4th Regulan Hussars' defeat and Fief's losing control of the planet to Marik-Stewart Commonwealth gave the 'Mech bad stigma. Where being assigned to the Sarath is seen sign of a MechWarrior falling out of favor with his/her peers.[4]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

One of the 'Mech's most distinguishing traits was that it was constructed using a combination of Advanced Inner Sphere and Clan technologies. The Sarath was constructed as an OmniMech, one of its distinguishing features being that 15 of its 19 tons of Pod Capacity are placed in the Quad Style, BattleMech Turret. The 'Mech also has been designed to have enhanced movement and strength in comparison with other similar designs. This is due in part to its 250-Rated Extra-Light Fusion Engine and use of TSM in its construction. Aside from its Quad Turret, the 'Mech possesses only one fixed weapon, a Magna Mk.IV Extended Range Small Laser mounted in its head.

The Sarath's Primary Configuration features a number of weapons mounted in its Quad Turret. Usage of the turret allows the Prime Configuration to bring most of its weapons to bear from any direction. The turreted weapons include a Heavy PPC, Light PPC, and one of the 'Mech's two ER Medium Lasers. Its other ER Medium is found in the 'Mech's center torso with the Beagle Active Probe. To take advantage of the 'Mech's TSM, each of the 'Mech's leg actuators is fitted with Spikes.[5]
