Description[edit]

The Wyvern BattleMech was upgraded by Clan Burrock after they rediscovered a Brian Cache that was thought lost during the Pentagon War. They turned this small cache into a refit factory for the Wyvern and, after it was upgraded with Clan-tech, it was dubbed the Wyvern IIC. The original, full complement of nine and a half tons of armor was left on the 'Mech. It also retained the engine and the 120 meter jumping capacity. Everything else was modified, including the use of double heat sinks and Clan-grade Endo Steel and CASE.[4]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Mk. 46 Type II LRM-10 and Mk. 22 Type III SRM-6 launchers are simple upgrades of the originals, while the Large Laser and Small Lasers were upgraded to a Series 6b ER Large Laser and Series 1 ER Small Lasers, respectively. In order to aid the Wyvern IIC in its traditional role of city garrison, a pair of Type VII Machine Guns and a "Hellfire" Series II Flamer were added, while the pair of Series 2a Mk. 5 ER Medium Lasers give it a better medium-range punch. Both hands were also retained so that the 'Mech could be of use in cities during peacetime.[4]
