Introduced in 2944[1], the Vargr (meaning 'wolf' in old norse) is an APC used by various factions to move infantry units.[2]. Relatively large for an APC, the Vargr's seven ton infantry bay allows it to carry a significant amount of infantry to the battlefield, while its substantial armor protection means it's likely to last long enough to deliver those infantry.

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Owing to its role as an armored personnel carrier, the Vargr is relatively lightly armed. It carries two Machine Guns and two medium lasers in a turret, allowing it to effectively support its payload of infantry after delivering them.


  • LRM 
    Introduced in 2945, this version retains its Machine Guns and swaps the medium lasers, heat sinks, and adapters for one turret-mounted LRM-15 with 8 rounds of ammunition. BV (2.0) = 827[3]



The Vargr first appeared in the apocryphal BattleTech video game, and was subsequently canonized in House Arano (The Aurigan Coalition), where it received record sheets for both its variants.
