The Enfield was originally designed to replace the Wyvern as an urban combat 'Mech, but the design never made it to mass production. The plans for the Enfield were lost during the Succession Wars and were recovered by the Federated Suns on the world of Achernar in 2870. Knowledge of the design was kept hidden until the 3050s, when the NAIS selected the Enfield as a companion 'Mech to the Enforcer ENF-5D. The Enfield thus began production in 3055 and has seen heavy deployment to the Lyran Alliance because of the constant threat presented by the Clans. Due to its extra-light engine the 'Mech has developed an undeserved reputation for being fragile in heavy combat.[1][2]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Enfield is built on a Blackstone MD2E endo steel chassis, and to save weight uses a Magna 250 XL engine which gives the 'Mech a top speed of 86.4 km/h. This allows it to carry a heavy arsenal. Protection is provided by 11 tons of StarGuard III armor with CASE to protect against ammunition explosions.

The Enfield carries a Defiance Disintegrator LB-X AC/10 as its primary weapon, capable of firing both solid and cluster ammunition, making it a highly effective anti-aircraft weapon. For close combat, the Enfield has a Thunderbolt-12 large pulse laser, two Defiance B3M medium lasers, and a ChisComp 32 small laser.[1][2]


  • END-6J 
    The 6J variant of the Enfield removes the small laser from the 'Mech and exchanges the large pulse laser for a large laser. The saved weight is used to add five jump jets, allowing the Enfield to jump up to 150 meters. This variant of the Enfield is very reliable, and although it loses some firepower and accuracy in the large laser, the addition of the jump jets gives it a high degree of mobility and survivability. BV (1.0) = 1,345[5][6], BV (2.0) = 1,417[7]
  • E ND-6S 
    Only a prototype in 3070, the 6S is an attempt to modify the 6Q to make it more durable. It replaces the XL engine with a similarly rated light engine, and in order to make up for the added mass ferro-fibrous armor is utilized. This is not enough to completely make up the difference, however, so the large pulse laser is downgraded to a standard large laser. The decrease in heat allowed for the removal of a double heat sink, while the remaining tonnage went into a Guardian ECM suite, which makes the Enfield more difficult to target. BV (1.0) = 1,268[10], BV (2.0) = 1,413[11]
