Description[edit]

The Huron Warrior was originally planned to be a fire support BattleMech, but as the design was moving from concept to production the rediscovery of Star League technology and reports that were coming back from the Clan front prompted the designers to dramatically change the 'Mech's payload. The design was modified to make the Huron Warrior capable of attacking an enemy with a devastating long range direct fire arsenal. The 'Mech's long range punch, combined with its ten tons of armor protection and average mobility make the Huron Warrior an effective weapon.

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The primary weapon that the Huron Warrior carries is a Grizzard Gauss Rifle (Modified 210 Version) that is capable of stripping off a ton of armor with each shot at extremely long ranges. The Gauss Rifle is backed up by a Martell ER Large Laser that provides good supplemental firepower at long ranges. Finally, it is armed with a Martell Medium Pulse Laser, which gives the Huron Warrior the ability to protect itself at short ranges.

Variants[edit]

  • HUR-WO-R4M 
    The 3056 R4M variant of the Huron Warrior is a simple modification that removes the Medium Pulse Laser in favor of a standard Medium Laser. The saved weight is used to add an additional ton of armor to the 'Mech. BV (1.0) = 1,180[2], BV (2.0) = 1,556[4]
  • HUR-WO-R4N 
    The R4N is a 3063 modification that looks to the original design of the Huron Warrior and reverts the 'Mech back to its original fire support role. This is done by stripping the 'Mechs weapons and ammunition payload and replacing them with a pair of LRM-15 launchers and four Medium Lasers. The 'Mech is also armored with new Stealth Armor and carries a Guardian ECM Suite. This combination of LRM-15s and Stealth Armor makes the R4N an incredibly powerful fire support 'Mech. BV (1.0) = 1,112, BV (2.0) = 1,553[5]
  • HUR-WO-R4O 
    A simple modification of the R4L model, the 3065 R4O model of the Huron Warrior carries double heat sinks, enabling it to drop one heat sink and carry an additional ton of ammunition for the Gauss Rifle. BV (1.0) = 1,417, BV (2.0) = 1,585[6]

Custom Variants[edit]

Notable pilots[edit]

  • William MacLeod colonel of Northwind Highlanders, received a Huron Warrior, a gift from chancellor Sun Tzu Liao, piloting during the battles for independence of Northwind and Huntress.

Design Quirks[edit]

The Huron Warrior has the following Design Quirk:[10]

The HUR-WO-RX4 Huron Warrior variant is subject to the following Design Quirks:[8]

Notes[edit]

In German products the unit's proper name was altered to Hurone, which shortens the name to Huron. The model code was accordingly changed to HUR-O4L.
