Description[edit | edit source]

The Calliope (whose name is based on that of the ancient Terran Greek muse of poetry) was primarily designed as a garrison BattleMech for the Magistracy Armed Forces to combat infantry and vehicles. The design was also introduced to replace the aging Snake BattleMech commonly used by both the Capellan Confederationand the Magistracy of Canopus for the same role. Work on the machine began in 3124 and continued for some three years before the unveiling of the 'Mech in 3127. Although the Calliope is entirely dependent on ammunition and is rather slow compared to modern 'Mechs of its class, it has excelled in its role as an anti-infantry and anti-armor BattleMech. Majesty Metals has managed to sell these 'Mechs not only to the Magistracy's Capellan ally, but also to the Duchy of Andurien and a number of mercenary units
