Heavy Battle Claw

Heavy Battle Claw


The Heavy Battle Claw is a modification of the Battle Claw with more strength for the express purpose of ripping armor off of BattleMechs. Heavy Battle Claws are typically reserved for heavy or assault-weight suits, in part because they are even clumsier than standard Battle Claws; except for hanging on to an OmniMech's handholds, the Heavy Battle Claw is absolutely useless for anything else.[1][2]
