Developed as much to replace units lost in the Blakists' Jihad as to prove the enduring industrial strength of the Draconis Combine, the Wight is a daring and innovative 'Mech design. With the loss of their main facility on the Combine's capital in 3068, Luthien Armor Works was caught between a government contract it could not refuse, yet could not fulfill due to lack of facilities, resulting in a surprising solution. Buying up a large volume of worn out 10-K Panthers sent to Wakazashi Enterprises for refurbishment, LAW stripped each 'Mech down to its base endo steel skeleton and then contracted with StarCorps Industries of Son Hoa in the Lyran Alliance to share the cost of a new design, shipping some of these frames to StarCorps with the paired ER lasers mounted to outfit as they wished. Those frames that LAW retained had compact fusion engines, double heat sinks, and heavy ferro-fibrous armor installed to give the Wight surprising longevity for a front-line light 'Mech.[5]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The Wight's weapon array suits its role as a short ranged brawler, based around one of the newly introduced Lord's Light heavy PPCs in the right torso, backed up by dual mounted Diverse Optics ER medium lasers. Its all energy weapon loadout allows the 'Mech to stay in action as long as its bulky armor and its pilot's endurance will allow.[5]


  • WGT-2SC 
    Despite sharing the cost of the design, StarCorps has never produced the base model, blasting LAW for its low mobility by light 'Mech standards. StarCorp's base version of the Wight instead uses standard ferro-fibrous armor and carries a snub-nose PPC as its main weapon to allow it to mount jump jets, trading firepower for mobility.[1] BV (2.0) = 1,093[8][9]
  • WGT-2LAWC3 
    The Wight's version of the ubiquitous DCMS C3 slave field refit kit. Like many such kits it removes one of the ER medium lasers to free up the space needed, and is available for both the 1LAW and 2LAW models.[1] BV (2.0)= 821[12][13]
