The Wendigo heavy BattleMech was inspired by the Nova Cat.


This BattleMech was featured in an official BattleTech product, namely the MechAssault 2 series of computer games.

By virtue of being an official albeit not positively canonical product, the game expansion and the 'Mechs presented therein including this one must be considered apocryphal.


The Wendigo is a variant of the Nova Cat.


The Wendigo is slightly less powerful than it's counterpart the Nova Cat but does not suffer as badly from overheating issues. Jump jets are not included on this Mech.


The Wendigo carries two PPCs and three Autocannons.


  • In an unusual move that goes against the usual BattleTech universe standards 'Mech speeds are expressed in mph rather than km/h, as such the speed figure has been converted to km/h for this article.
  • The description of the Reactive Armor Shielding looks very similar to the Ballistic-Reinforced Armor.
