The original Warhammer was designed as an assault BattleMech. However, it had been superseded by later and heavier 'Mech designs, though it remained a powerful weapons platform. The Clans wisely maintained and built on this solid frame a real assault 'Mech, the Warhammer IIC. Thanks to their technological expertise, they were able to add ten tons with the same speed and firepower and nearly double the armor of the original. The Warhammer IIC is built on an Endo Steel frame and is protected by twelve tons of ferro-fibrous armor. The result is a dangerous 'Mech, able to hold its own in any battle against the Inner Sphere. Also note that the armor was the primary concern when designing the IIC version rivaling even 100 ton assault 'Mechs in durability and protection. After the Jihad, production of the Warhammer IIC continued for the Spheroid Clans at Clan Sea Fox's Trellshire Heavy Industries plant[5] and Clan Snow Raven's Industrial Complex Alpha.[6]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

Paired Mk. XVII ER PPCs allow the Warhammer IIC to inflict fifty percent more damage than the regular Successor States' PPCs. Added to an SRM-6 launcher and five Medium Pulse Lasers, this firepower overwhelms most 'Mechs of equal or lesser tonnage. Twenty double heat sinks keep the design relatively cool.


  • Warhammer IIC
    This variant turns the Warhammer IIC into a fire support 'Mech. Clan scientists replaced the Medium Pulse Lasers with a pair of LRM-15s and four tons of ammunition. BV (1.0) = 2,173; BV (2.0) = 2,482[7]
  • Warhammer IIC
    Designed by Clan Diamond Shark, this variant replaces the PPCs and missile launcher of the original design with a pair of arm-mounted Heavy Large Lasers,[1] two additional heat sinks, and a half ton of armor. An advanced Targeting Computer was also added to help ensure that the hard-to-use heavy lasers hit. BV (1.0) = 2,038;[citation needed] BV (2.0) = 2,382[8]
  • Warhammer IIC
    The IIC 3 was not well-received by the Clan's buyers, so they went back to the drawing board and devoted a significant amount of energy and resources to this variant. Almost completely reworked from the ground up, the IIC 4 has a different aesthetic from the original, but its communication systems and weapons have been upgraded to top-of-the-line models, unlike the traditional view of second-line 'Mechs. The old ER PPCs were swapped out for a pair of new Type DDS "Kingston" models, while the secondary weapons were stripped out. They were replaced by a pair of System 4 ATM-6 launchers and a Series 1 Mk. III ER Small Laser. This variant is also the Reseen Warhammer IIC. BV (1.0) = 2,162;[citation needed] BV (2.0) = 2,386[9] or 2,162[1]
  • Warhammer IIC
    This variant of the IIC 4 replaces five heat sinks and the missile launchers with a Hyper-Assault Gauss Rifle 30 and four tons of ammunition.[10] BV (2.0) = 2,661[12]
  • Warhammer IIC
    Developed by Clan Snow Raven this variant is unique in that it's intended for vacuum operations. To this end it carries two Fuel Tanks to carry the additional reaction mass it requires. The weapons are a mix of pulse and extended range lasers but the main firepower comes from the arm mounted ER PPCs. A single ATM-6 launcher provides additional long or short range firepower.[10] BV (2.0) = 2,915[13]
  • Warhammer IIC
    This Diamond Shark-produced variant uses arm mounted Plasma Cannons and Heavy Large Lasers as its main armament. These are supported by two ER Medium Lasers and a Streak SRM-6. Nineteen double heat sinks are installed to keep things cool. The 'Mech's top speed is increased to 85 km/h by using a huge 400XL engine. Shark engineers used Endo Steel and ferro-fibrous armor to maximize weight savings. BV (2.0) = 2,380[14]
  • Warhammer IIC
    This version drops the ER PPCs and replaces them with experimental Rotary AC/5s. An XXL fusion engine provides enough power for a top speed of 86 km/h. The RACs are backed up by a pair of ER Medium Lasers and ER Small Lasers, and the missile launcher is now an LRM-10. In addition to the ferro-fibrous armor, an ECM Suite in the head disrupts enemy electronics. BV (2.0) = 2,819[15]
  • Warhammer IIC 10 
    Introduced in the Dark Age era, this version carries four ER Large Lasers supported by twin SRM-6 launchers. A single ER Small Laser rounds out the armament. It's powered by a standard fusion engine, but uses an Endo Steel frame and ferro-fibrous armor. BV (2.0) = 2,290[16]
  • Warhammer IIC 11 
    Another Dark Age variant, this model carries a Heavy Large Laser in each arm, an ER Medium Laser in the head, and a Streak SRM-6 in the side torsos. To protect it from enemy infantry, each leg mounts a single A-Pod. BV (2.0) = 2,021[17]
  • Warhammer IIC 12 
    This version uses an XXL engine to reach top speeds of 86 km/h. Its weapon load hearkens back to the original Warhammer, carrying ER PPCs in the arms and a single ER Medium Laser and ER Small Laser in the left and right torso. An SRM-6 is also carried in the right torso, and an ECM Suite disrupts enemy communications and targeting. This version is protected by Heat-Dissipating Armor. BV (2.0) = 2,680[18]
  • Warhammer IIC 13 
    A variant produced by the Raven Alliance, this version combines the secondary arrays of the original model and the version 2, at the expense of armor protection. It mounts an ER PPC in each arm and an LRM-15 on each shoulder. Five Medium Pulse Lasers and an SRM-6 launcher add additional power at close range. BV (2.0) = 2,715[19]

From MechWarrior Online:

  • WHM-IIC-ML Maul 
    The first Hero 'Mech variant of the Warhammer IIC, the Maul carriers an ER PPC in each arm. Each torso carries an SRM-6, heavy machine gun, and a medium pulse laser. The 'Mech carries two tons of machine gun ammo and three tons of missile ammunition. An anti-missile system is mounted in the center torso. This variant mounts eight double heat sinks and carries a 320-rated standard engine.[20]
  • WHM-IIC-BL Bludgeon 
    The second Hero Variant of the Warhammer IIC, the Bludgeon carriers an ER PPC in each arm, an ER Medium Laser in each side torso supported by right torso ATM 6 fed by a three ton ammo bay, along with three Jump Jets mounted in the Torsos.[21]
    The A variant carries an LB 10-X Autocannon in each arm, supported by a Streak SRM-6 and ER Medium Laser in each side torso, with an additional ER Medium in the center torso. Carrying two tons each of autocannon and Streak reloads, the Warhammer IIC is built around a 320-rated standard engine, endo steel frame and ferro-fibrous armor and carries twelve double heat sinks.[20]

Related Designs[edit]

  • Warhammer - Ten tons lighter, the Warhammer was one of the 'Mechs the Star League Defense Force would take with them to the Exodus Fleet. The original design was meant to be an Assault 'Mech, but its purpose would be fulfilled when the SLDF-in-exile became the Clans. The technology of the Clans would convert its weapons to Clan standards and increase the design up to ten tons.
