The Nightshade is a FedCom Conventional Fighter used in MechWarrior 4 by both sides of the conflict. In the field, its high maneuverability does not make up for its weak armor and light armament; as a result, these fighters have quite high casualty rates.[2]


The Nightshade is armed with only two SRM 2s.[3]


No known variants of the Nightshade exist.


Being mentioned only in an apocryphal source (the video game MechWarrior 4), the Nightshade must consequentially be considered apocryphal as well.
