The Aesir was a post-Jihad design created by Clan Wolf as a cheap anti-aircraft platform, designed for their second-line occupation zone forces. Slow and heavily armored, the Aesir was strictly made for defensive roles, serving as an anti-air turret and mobile gun emplacement - often deployed in full Stars to defend fixed assets. The design included CASE for added protection.[1][4]

While initially produced for use in Clan Wolf's second-line formations, it spread beyond the Clan. Clan Wolf in Exile acquired plans for the vehicle via a Trial of Possession in 3101, and Clan Sea Fox sold some Aesirs to the Republic of the Sphere.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Aesir mounts a set of four Type Sierra LB-X Autocannon/2s in its turret. With their long-range, and cluster munitions, they serve as an effective counter to airborne raiders. Two tons of ammunition are provided.[1]

The vehicle armor protection includes 9.5 tons of Forging OTR20d Ferro-Fibrous Armor. While giving the vehicle additional protection from crippling damage, the Aesir is equipped with an Armored Motive System.[1]


  • HAG 
    Used by Clan Hell's Horses, this version of the Aesir replaces the LB-X autocannons with a single turret-mounted HAG/40. It carries six tons of ammunition and retains the armor protection and Armored Motive System of the original Aesir. BV (2.0) = 1,505[5][6]

Design Quirks[edit]

The Aesir is subject to the following Design Quirk:[1]


  • The Aesir was first created by WizKids' MechWarrior Dark Age Collectable Miniatures game as a part of its Counter Assault expansion set. The figure was used by the main four factions during the release as a common combat vehicle. The Aesir was later adapted by Catalyst Game Labs and redefined in the tabletop game once the company advanced the franchise's timeline to 3145.
  • Though the original Dossier for Counter Assault lists the Aesir as tracked, its image clearly shows the vehicle as being wheeled; assuming that the listed speed is correct, a 145-rated engine would be appropriate for a wheeled vehicle of its size. Per Technical Readout: 3145 The Clans, the engine does have a rating of 145.[1]
