Description[edit]

The Regent is the flagship design of the ilKhanate's Project Reynard, benefiting from masterstrokes of legal and commercial savvy. After the Hauptmann was shelved due to the military reduction program, Coventry Metal Works had been looking to revive the design but encountered supply issues with existing ClanTech manufacturers. Merchant Bilius learned of these difficulties through the Chatterweb and coordinated the introductions between CMW and Technicron Manufacturing, who had been looking to renew their production of the Awesome. The efficiency of ClanTech allowed a reduction of five tons from the Hauptmann, allowing the Foxes to switch to a less expensive and more common GM 270 reactor. After the base OmniMech chassis are completed, they are sent to ilKhanate facilities to be armed with the required omnipods. The design incorporates visual elements of both the Hauptmann and Awesome, resulting in its nickname of "Awesomemann".[1]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The primary configuration carries a varied and powerful arsenal. For long range combat, the Regent carries three ER Large Lasers as its primary long range weapons. These give the Regent Prime a good long range damage capability. For close combat, the 'Mech has an LB-X Autocannon/20 for devastating close range firepower backed up by two Medium Pulse Lasers, a Micro Pulse Laser for infantry defense, and a Streak SRM-4 launcher. Finally, to protect the 'Mech against ammunition explosions, the Regent Prime has CASE II protecting all ammunition.[1]

Alternate Configurations[edit]

  • Alternate Configuration A

The A configuration is built around three ER PPCs, each paired with a capacitor. In addition, it carries a targeting computer. While 26 double heat sinks and a Coolant Pod attempt to keep the heat under control.[1]

  • Alternate Configuration B

With an Ultra AC/20 and paired ER PPCs as its main weapons, the B supplements its armament with three ER Medium Lasers, four ER Micro Lasers and 13 additional heat sinks.[1]

  • Alternate Configuration C

The C mounts only two weapons, a HAG/40 and an Improved Heavy Gauss Rifle.[1]

  • Alternate Configuration D

The D carries two Improved Heavy Medium Lasers in each arm, while the side torsos each carry an LRM-15, LB-2X and Ultra AC/2. Both side torsos are protected with CASE II and a Small Pulse Laser is mounted in the head.

  • Awesome - The A configuration imitates a Clantech Awesome.[1]
  • Fafnir - The C configuration is often called a "Fafnirmann" for its similarity to Defiance Industries' flagship assault.[1]
  • Mauler - Like the C variant, the D is nicknamed "Maulermann" thanks to its similar weapons loadout.[1]
