Description[edit | edit source]
Originally debuting in 3054, Solaris Arms' ponderous Bombard favors the all or nothing approach, prioritizing overwhelming firepower over speed.
Little more than a walking turret, the Bombard packs a heavy weight punch for its fifty-ton weight, relying on it overwhelming its targets before its pathetic mobility can be exploited, a trade off only a few MechWarriors were willing to consider, among them "Mad Dog" MacNaughton. When interest in the design faded after a humiliating Davion Arena match in 3054 publicly laid bare its flaws, Solaris Arms went back to the drawing board, redesigning and introducing a modernized Bombardin 3064.
While retaining the Hermes 100 rated XL Engine and Endo Steel chassis of the original, they enhanced its defensive protection with CASE in the side torsos while reinforced Spikes were added to legs. Though correcting one notable flaw, replacing the problematic but compact War of 3039-vintage Double Heat Sinks and their corrosive coolant with standard models, most critics point out that modern version's performance is little changed from the despised original
