The Word of Blake wanted to create quad BattleMechs, but were unable to produce the kind that they wanted until they acquired the light engine technology from the Lyran Alliance. As with many Word 'Mechs, the majority were funneled to secret units. The White Flame is as protected by its jump jets that can propel it up to 150 meters as by its fifteen tons of armor. A C3i Computer allows it to share targeting telemetry with other similarly equipped units.[5]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Tronel XIII Large Pulse Laser, Tronel XII Medium Pulse Laser, and two Diverse Optics ER Medium Lasers give the White Flame an all-energy configuration for its offensive weaponry. This gives it the ability to operate far from supply for extended periods, but the damage rate is rather low when compared to other 'Mechs of a similar size. Its strength is undoubtedly its speed, which it can use to harass enemies and keep from taking too many hits.[5]
