Primary Configuration

BV (2.0) 2,266[1][2][3]


Initially a Partial Wing testbed, the Flamberge became a prominent Clan Jade Falcon OmniMech, helping to inspire the Falcon's Dark Age era design style aesthetic.

Developing the experimental Partial Wing technology in the 3060s, attempts by the Falcon scientists to develop a new production design using it were unsuccessful and the project was ultimately shelved. Cut-off from the Clan Homeworlds as losses mounted in the Jihad, in 3074 then Khan Marthe Pryde tasked Merchant Daniel and the Falcon design teams to use whatever was available to rebuild her forces. After removing much of the internal components of the wings, retaining the inbuilt Pattern J7 SRM-6 launchers in the shoulders to avoid further delays, the reborn testbed featured an imposing birdlike cosmetic appearance that helped the Flamberge secure a prominent position in the Clan Jade Falcon touman.[4]

Built on an Endo Steel chassis, powered by a 280 rated XL engine, and clad in thirteen and a half tons of armor, while slower than other front-line OmniMechs of similar weight, the bulk of the Flamberge's variants feature Jump Jets and the design was built with them in mind. Mounting eleven double heat sinks on its base frame, the design had thirty-five tons of available pod space.[4]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Aside from the fixed pair of SRM-6 launchers mounted in its shoulders, the primary configuration mounted an ATM-6 in each torso supported by two Medium Pulse Lasers in each arm. The Flamberge Prime featured superb mobility thanks to its inclusion of Improved Jump Jets, mounted two tons of ATM munitions, a single ton of SRM reloads and four extra heat sinks.[4]

Alternate Configurations[edit]

  • Alternate Configuration A 
    Built around an ER PPC and a Large Pulse Laser, with both weapons linked to a Targeting Computer, the Flamberge A was a deadly accurate skirmisher. Five Improved Jump Jets, two extra SRM 6 racks with a total of three tons of reloads for the quartet, and four extra heat sinks gave it good endurance and maneuverability.[1] BV (2.0) = 2,575[1][5]
  • Alternate Configuration B 
    A mixed-range harasser, the B configuration carried three Plasma Cannons, one in its center torso and the other two alongside an ER Medium Laser in each arm, supported by a right torso–mounted ER Large Laser. Fitted with standard Jump Jets and a Targeting Computer, six extra heat sinks, two tons of SRM reloads and six of Plasma munitions gave it reasonable endurance.[1] BV (2.0) = 2,750[1][6]
  • Alternate Configuration C 
    Unusual for the Clans, the C mounts an Arrow IV launcher on its left side, supported by a Medium Pulse Laser in each arm, and a Large Laser in the right arm, and an ER medium laser in the right torso. Lacking the jump jets of the other configurations, the Flamberge C mounted three tons of Arrow missiles, two tons of SRM reloads and six extra heat sinks as well as TAG so it could spot for itself in emergencies.[1] BV (2.0) = 2,092[4] or 2,206[1][7]
  • Alternate Configuration D 
    This version of the Flamberge developed in 3115[8] carries two plasma rifles from Inner Sphere sources. These are supplemented by four Medium Pulse Lasers. To counter the heat, sixteen double heat sinks are fitted. BV (2.0) = 2,357[9][8]


  • Flamberge
    Attempting to restore the Partial Wing to the Flamberge when the Falcons secured a number of Clan Wolf scientists after the conclusion of the Jihad, this variant introduced 3087[10] mounted an array of pulse lasers and enough improved jump jets to virtually fly around the battlefield. A Large Pulse Laser is supported by five Medium Pulse lasers and a Micro Pulse Laser. This version retains the paired SRM-6 missile launchers of the original. The Flamberge 2 also possesses an experimental Partial Wing and six Improved Jump Jets that allow it to cover 210 meters in a single jump.[1] BV (2.0) = 2,468[11][10]
  • Flamberge
    With performance identical to the Flamberge 2, the Flamberge 3 has a completely different weapons load. It's armed with an Ultra AC/20, paired SRM-4 launchers, Medium Pulse Lasers, and a single Micro Pulse Laser rounding out the armament. BV (2.0) = 2,346[12][13]
