CN9-Ar Centurion
A Jihad-era variant, this version mates Succession Wars era production capability of the factory with improved technology to get more units on the field. Carrying ten Double Heat Sinks, this field refit uses a Heavy PPC and Light PPC instead of the autocannon. It keeps the standard LRM-10, but upgrades the rear-firing laser to a pulse version. BV (2.0) = 1,226[1]
CN9-AH Centurion
The CN9-AH Centurion is a variant of the 'Mech that removes the Autocannon/10 and the Medium Lasers and adds a single Autocannon/20, somewhat reducing the long range capabilities in exchange for raw short-range firepower. BV (1.0) = 749, BV (2.0) = 945[2]
CN9-AL Centurion
The AL variant is an attempt to reduce the ammunition dependency of the 'Mech. It achieves this is by replacing the Autocannon/10 with a Large Laser and a Small Laser. Additionally, six heat sinks were added to the design as were two and a half additional tons of armor. BV (1.0) = 887[3], BV (2.0) = 1,057[4]
CN9-D Centurion
The D variant of the Centurion is the first of many upgrades using Star League technology. The chassis was re-engineered to use Endo Steel construction techniques. Next the power plant was changed from the standard engine to an extralight engine. In the process the maximum speed was increased to 97.2 km/h. Finally, the weapons were upgraded. The Autocannon/10 was upgraded to an LB-X Autocannon/10 and an Artemis IV fire control system was added to the LRM launcher. The two Medium Lasers were retained. BV (1.0) = 940[5], BV (2.0) = 1,130[6]
CN9-Da Centurion
Introduced during the FedCom Civil War, this field expedient refit removes the LB-X autocannon and replaces it with a standard Autocannon/5. The use of Precision Ammunition and a Targeting Computer makes each shot count. BV (2.0) = 1,035[7]
CN9-D3 Centurion
The CN9-D3 variant is identical to the CN9-D Centurion with one exceptional difference. The D3 uses Triple Strength Myomer to increase its top speed up to 118.8 kph while it is running hot. BV (1.0) = 968[5], BV (2.0) = 1,264[8]
CN9-D3D Centurion
The D3D variant of this 'Mech is a potent long-range sniper. It uses the same chassis and engine combination as the D3 variant. The 'Mech uses MASC to augment its movement to give it a maximum speed of 129.6 kph. The primary weapon on the D3D is a Light Gauss Rifle. For added long range assistance, the 'Mech carries an LRM-10 launcher and for close range combat it carries an ER Medium Laser. This is all protected with eight tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor. BV (1.0) = 1,028, BV (2.0) = 1,266[citation needed]
CN9-D4D Centurion
The D4D Centurion is almost identical to the D3D variant with two major modifications. The engine has been replaced with a smaller model to make more room for weapons on the 'Mech and the LRM-10 has been upgraded to an LRM-15 with an Artemis IV fire control system for greater long-range support capabilities. BV (1.0) = 1,034, BV (2.0) = 1,306[citation needed]
CN9-D5 Centurion
This variant of the Centurion is inspired by the CN9-D and uses the same engine and chassis. The 'Mech uses MASC to allow it bursts of speed reaching up to 129.6 kph. The weapons have been greatly modified. The weapons compliment has been completely removed. The 'Mechs primary weapon is a Rotary Autocannon/5. This is backed up by two ER Medium Lasers. To direct this firepower, the 'Mech uses an advanced Targeting Computer. Additionally, the 'Mech carries a C3 Slave unit to allow it to share targeting data with its lance mates. BV (1.0) = 1,376[5], BV (2.0) = 1,738[8]
CN9-D9 Centurion
Built by Jalastar Aerospace as a testbed for newer technologies, the D9 modifies the D. It utilizes Light Ferro-Fibrous armor, and upgrades the amount of protection to the specifications of the D5. It also mounts a Compact Gyro, though the design does little to utilize the space that is made available. The autocannon is replaced with a Plasma Rifle, which is fed by a two-ton ammo bin. Like the upgrade to the D5, the D9 mounts to ER Mediums in the chest and upgrades to double heat sinks. Perhaps the most notable upgrade, however, is the inclusion of jump jets that enable the Centurion to leap up to 180 meters at a time. BV (2.0) = 1,638[8]
CN9-H Centurion
Developed by the Marian Hegemony's first 'Mech production plant, this variant uses "Primitive" technology. Though the larger Primitive Engine takes up more room than a Succession Wars-era model and the nine tons of Primitive Armor don't provide as much protection as the CN9-A model, the LB 10-X AC and quintet of Rocket Launcher 10s provide excellent firepower. A single Medium Laser rounds out the armament. Marian Arms Incorporated and the Alphard Trading Corporation are apparently using this primitive line to boost the Hegemony's technology base. BV (2.0) = 848[9]
CN10-B Centurion
The CN10-B uses an Endo Steel chassis to save weight on the design. The 'Mech also retains its original ground speed and standard Fusion Engine. The 'Mech carries an LB-X Autocannon/10 as its primary weapon with an LRM-10 launcher with an Artemis IV fire control system. This is all backed up with a Medium Laser and a Medium Pulse Laser. BV (1.0) = 1,078, BV (2.0) = 1,243[citation needed]
Yen-Lo-Wang was a famous ArenaMech in the Solaris Games. Originally a CN9-A that underwent a series of modifications to a variety of customized configurations over time, it was occasionally reported as the "CN9-YLW" but this is explicitly[10] not considered to be a proper variant. The CN9-YLW designation is associated with one particular modification that drops the LRM to upgrade the autocannon to an Autocannon/20 with three tons of ammunition and add a Hatchet to the left arm. BV (2.0) = 957[11][12]
