- Note: The mass of the Overlord-C was changed from originally 11,550 tons to 11,600 tons in the most recent publication detailing the vessel, Technical Readout: 3057 Revised. The MUL entry confirms this.
The Clan version of the Overlord is as impressive a DropShip within the Clans as the original is in the Inner Sphere. Capable of carrying an entire Cluster's worth of 'Mechs, the Overlord-C is one of the largest Mech carriers in existence. Originally intended as a "refit" of the Overlords that went with the Exodus fleet, the redesign quickly ended up as a new vessel, though one that closely resembles its progenitor.
The armor of the Overlord-C is impressive, being nearly 50% better than the original design. Its weapon loadout is similarly better, with a good long range punch provided by three ER Large Lasers, six ER PPCs, three Large Pulse Lasers and three LRM-20s. At close range the ship is even deadlier, being able to bring to bear its twelve Medium Pulse Lasers, six Ultra AC-5s and two Ultra AC-20s. It carries respectable amounts of ammunition for all its weapons, though it has some blind spots in its aft arc that require careful piloting by the ship's captain to prevent exploitation.
