Curtiss Militech looked to exploit the success of the Wraith with a venture into the light 'Mech class, with their flagship in this effort being the Eagle. The concept of the design is to create a balanced mix of speed and firepower on a light chassis, but the end result is a 'Mech on the lower end of the light class with movement capabilities equal to most 'Mechs in the 50 to 60 ton range. The Eagle is built on a Curtiss Eagle endo steel chassis that saves weight on the 'Mech, powered by a Vlar 125 fusion engine that gives the 'Mech a ground speed of 86.4 km/h. For added mobility, the Eagle has five CurtissJet 55 jump jets that allow it to jump up to 150 meters. Five tons of Kallon FWL armor gives it decent protection from other light 'Mechs but overall, the Eagle is a light 'Mech that packs a punch while sacrificing speed and maneuverability, making it vulnerable to heavier 'Mechs.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Eagle gets its primary punch from a Diverse Optics Sunbeam ER large laser that can remove half a ton of armor from a target at up to 570 meters, while a Diverse Optics ER medium laser engages closer targets. A Forward-1 TAG laser designator is also mounted, making it capable of calling in highly accurate Arrow IV artillery attacks as well as semi-guided LRM fire.[1]


Design Quirks[edit]

The Eagle has the following Design Quirks:[9]


  • In German products, the unit's proper name was translated to Adler. In addition (and presumably to distinguish it from the German renamed aerospace fighter Adler), the model code was changed to ADL-2M.
