Traditionally seen as a Davion BattleMech, the Enforcer was commissioned to be redesigned by then First Prince Victor Steiner-Davion in an effort to rebuild his image within the sundered Federated Commonwealth. While not completely successful in the latter goal, the Enforcer III does succeed in bringing a classic 'Mech up to a more modern standard. The Enforcer III is built on a Dorwinion Standard-Alpha Endo Steel chassis that weighs half as much as a comparable standard chassis. Further weight savings were achieved through the use of a powerful Magna 250 XL Engine that gives the 'Mech a top speed of 86.4 km/h, which is complemented by five McCloud Specials jump jets, granting it a jumping capability of one hundred and fifty meters. The Enforcer III is armored with ten tons of StarGuard CIV armor that gives it good armor protection.
Weapons and Equipment
The Enforcer III carries as its primary weapon a Mydron Excel Ultra Type 10 Ultra Autocannon/10 that can put twice as much firepower on a target as a standard autocannon of the same class and can keep up a barrage at its maximum firing rate for over a minute and a half. The Ultra Autocannon is backed up by a BlazeFire Sweetshot ER Large Laser and a ChisComp 2000 ER Small Laser. This balanced mix of weapons makes the Enforcer III a powerful medium 'Mech. Additionally, due to the 'Mech's similarities to the original Enforcer, the Enforcer III has become a direct replacement for destroyed Enforcers in many units.
- A field refit turned factory variant of the Enforcer III, the 6T model removes the Autocannon, ER Large Laser and ER Small Laser in favor of a powerful Poland Gauss Rifle for sniping and an Diverse Optics ER Medium Laser for close combat. The weapons on the Enforcer III are all linked to an advanced Targeting Computer that gives the 6T model incredible accuracy. Spare weight and space allows the factory built 6T to mount a hand on the left arm as well as an extra half ton of armor. BV (1.0) = 1,614, BV (2.0) = 1,720 
- Proposed at the same time as a 6T but not seeing the light of day until shortages of targeting computers during the FedCom Civil War, the space reserved for the targeting computer is devoted to a bevy of lasers, re-adding the ER small laser, adding two extra ER mediums and a single Medium Pulse Laser. BV (1.0) ??, BV (2.0) = 1,858
- An 3074 advanced tech variant developed during the Jihad by NAIS. The standard armor is switched for Light Ferro-Fibrous, which slightly reduced the 'Mech's armor protection. The 'Mech has 12 Double Heat Sinks, to cope with 'Mechs advanced weaponry. A Snub-Nose PPC, a Large Variable Speed Pulse Laser, and ER Small Laser make up the 'Mech arensal. To improve accuracy it has been given a Targeting Computer and C3 Slave Computer. BV (2.0) = 1,475
- This 3075 version replaces the Ultra Autocannon/10 of the original with a Heavy PPC and an experimental C3 Boosted Slave. The Heavy PPC is supported by an ER Medium Laser and a Medium Pulse Laser. This variant can also jump 150 meters and carries a Targeting Computer. BV (2.0) = 1,687
- This variant was introduced in 3104 after the Victoria War. Protected by nine and a half tons of Light Ferro-Fibrous armor, the most dramatic change is the use of a Torso-Mounted Cockpit to increase pilot survival. This version of the 'Enforcer III carries an LB 10-X in the right arm and an ER PPC in the left arm. Two tons of ammunition are provided and protected by a CASE II system. For anti-infantry work, it carries a Small Pulse Laser. Ground speed and jump capability are identical to those of the standard Enforcer III. BV (2.0) = 1,495
- ENF-7X MUSE COMPACT
- Developed on New Avalon during the Word of Blake attacks, the MUSE COMPACT project was an attempt to study ways of returning battlefield salvage to action. Their test-bed configuration was the ENF-7X. This Enforcer III variant uses several Clan-produced components, including the Endo Steel skeleton, Ferro-Fibrous armor, XL Engine, and double heat sinks. All the existing armament was removed and replaced by an experimental Binary Laser Cannon in each arm. The Enforcer III MUSE COMPACT retains the standard ground performance of the Enforcer III but adds Improved Jump Jets to improve jumping abilities. An XL Gyro provides the weight savings needed to mount this equipment. During the Jihad, the House Davion's Department of Military Communications and Research was trying to find a way to create a production version of this prototype. BV (2.0) = 1,670
- Arthur Steiner-Davion piloted an Enforcer III during an attack by the Black Dragons on Robinson in 3062.
In German products the unit's proper name was perfectly translated to Vollstrecker III. The model code was accordingly changed to VOL-6M.
