Description[edit]

During mining activities on a non-canonical planet (Imphal III) during 3026, the Federated Suns found a battered JumpShip and attached to it an unspecified DropShip full of BattleMech components. As the Suns were preparing for the Fourth Succession War, Hanse Davion instructed the NAIS to use the parts to prepare prototypes of several 'Mechs.

The NAIS Team, lead by Richard Bertram, worked for two years with thousand of pieces to create this prototype that if successful in battle would be mass produced.[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Paladin was powered by a Strand 255 and equipped with enough jump jets to cover his walking speed. The fifteen heat sinks it carried could barely keep up with all the 'Mech's firepower, and if it did fire all of its weapons it could easily overheat.

The Paladin carries one AC/5 in each arm, the LRM 10 in the right torso, and two medium lasers and one small laser in each side torso. The machine guns fire to the rear and are both located in the central torso.

Sixteen and a half tons of armor protected the BattleMech correctly.[1]
