This article is about variants of canon designs. I decided to put them on a seperate page for better seperation of canon/fanon, and to keep better track of the variants.
Because of the Empire's initial isolation, and having to build-up their BattleMech manufacturing facilities from the ground up, a number of designs were altered to better reflect the preferences of the Empire's MechWarriors and Armed Forces. As such, most of their BattleMechs today have only a passing semblance to the designs they originated from.
- DRG-1N-MOD Dragon: The -MOD was originally a field-modification made to a Dragon in service to the 1st Yuki-Onna of the Draconis Combine, although currently a museum-piece on Yuki. The -MOD replaced the Imperator-A with a Lord's Light 1, the Telos DecaCluster with a pair of Telos Four-Shots, changing the mounting of the rear-facing Victory 23R to the front, as well as installing four additional Heat Sinks and increasing the armour protection to eleven tons.
- MAD-3R-MOD Marauder: Unlike the the DRG-1N-MOD, this Marauder is still in service, although it has been upgraded several times to incorporate newer technologies. Originally, it was piloted by Tai-sa Kaori Aijou, the commander of the 1st Yuki-Onna. The original GM Whirlwind was replaced with a single Magna Mk II. This allowed the installation of six additional Heat Sinks, as well as increasing the armour to thirteen and a half tons.
