In the description, it suddenly says Vicore Industries started building the GR. Can we get a citation on this? Blackenburg's factory was on Terra. Vicore's only known factory is in the FS and produced Valkyries. ClanWolverine101

The description says they developed (not built as you indicate) new variants, which comes from Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade, 'Mech is still produced on Terra. Cyc 22:16, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Okay, fair enough. But if a mech is exclusively built at Blackenburg on Terra, what are they doing developing variants at an FS Valkyrie factory? Is it indicated WoB conquered that planet? ClanWolverine101
They didn't, Vicore developed it on Terra. All the present Vicore page on BTW indicates is their Valkyrie production line, but Vicore is practically a Blakist front company and Technical Readout: Project Phoenix indicates they're all over the Inner Sphere developing loads of new refits and upgrades of old and new 'Mechs, Masters & Minions even more overt on the links between them.

It is against my religion to acknowledge the existence of Project Phoenix.
Yes, I'm kidding. Very good. Maybe I'll write the article on those guys. ClanWolverine101

C3[edit]

Can you confirm that in 3055U that the Grim Reaper GRM-R-PR30 and GRM-R-PR31 variants have Improved C3 Computers? Megamek, and Solaris Skunkworks files I have seem to indicate that they are actually C3 Slaves, I don't have my copy of TRO 3055U with me at the moment though to compare. --Veretax 18:37, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Record Sheets: 3055 Upgrade confirms this. Good catch! --Scaletail 00:12, 19 August 2010 (UTC)
You're entirely right, but I have to consider that its a typo and supposed to be C3i. After 3058 it was produced solely by the Word of Blake. What did they need C3 Slaves for? ClanWolverine101 18:06, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
Apparently legacy support for captured standard C3 and traitor units with standard C3. The weight difference makes it hard to argue its a typo and its been raised and confirmed multiple times in "Ask the Writers" (so far found http://www.classicbattletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,39556.0.html and http://www.classicbattletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,18892.0.html ) that it was intentional. — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by Cyc (talkcontribs) 9 December 2010.
