Description[edit]

The Gùn is a moderately fast, light OmniMech which was designed by the Capellan Confederation for infantry support. Built by Ceres Metals Industries in the Lockton factory, the design was first fielded in 3144 just as House Liao began its invasion of the Federated Suns Capellan March.[4][1]

Created to serve as a garrison 'Mech, its main role is to serve as fire-support for the garrison's infantry & battle armor formations. However, with only three and a half tons of armor, the 'Mech lacks sufficient protection to counter heavier combat vehicles and traditional BattleMechs in combat. The 'Mech features a Small Cockpit and an XL Gyro to save weight.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Designed with ten tons of pod space, the primary configuration of the Gùn features a combination of anti-infantry and anti-vehicle energy weaponry. Its main weapon is a Plasma Rifle mounted in the right arm with two tons of ammo located in the adjacent torso. This weapon is backed up by a pair of Extended Range Medium Lasers.[1]

Alternate Configurations[edit]
