The SLG-X Slagmaiden BattleMech is a mixed hybrid of Clan and Inner Sphere experimental technologies. Built in 3076 by Arc-Royal MechWorks, the 'Mech was intended to showcase advanced technologies and boost the morale of troops during the Jihad. Only two Slagmaidens were ever constructed, due to some of its design features and its expense. It is unknown if the Slagmaiden will ever reach general production, as the 'Mech seems destined for the niche of arena combat.[2]

Armament and Capacities[edit]

Intended more for dueling than battlefield combat use, the design hosts a number of medium- and short-range weapons. The Slagmaiden's primary weapon is its Clan heavy large laser, which is mounted in its right arm. To help mitigate the significant heat buildup from the laser, techs have installed a laser insulator with the weapon. The 'Mech's short range weaponry includes a pair of ER flamers found in its right arm, while a pair of Streak SRM-2s are mounted in each side torso, with the ammunition protected by CASE II in the left torso.

The Slagmaiden's other signature feature is the large shield found on its left arm; while the shield is active, the 'Mech is unable to use its torso-mounted weapons as well as slowing the 'Mech down by 11 km/h. However, this is offset by the 'Mechs's supercharger, which pushes the 'Mech's speed to 108 km/h. Techs also applied 10.5 tons of standard armor to the hull to protect the 'Mech's fragile composite internal structure from harm.[3]
