Description[edit | edit source]
Manufactured on Emris IV by StarCorps Industries, the Carronade was designed to fill roles normally taken by two seperate 'Mechs within the same lance - punching holes in the armor of enemy units, and then exploiting those holes with waves of small munitions. The Carronade was successful enough in military actions performed by the Federation of Oriente in 3110 to both attract the interest of mercenary units and to see action in the Solaris VII arenas. The considerable success of the Oriente Carronades in action against the Republic of the Sphere, however, caused RAF units to make downing Carronades a priority.
Powered by a VOX 280 Extra-Light Fusion Engine, the Carronade could reach speeds of 64 kph on the battlefield, although it lacked Jump Jets. The Carronade was protected by thirteen and a half tons of ArcShield VII Mk.5 Standard Armor, while CASE II installed in the Carronade protected the 'Mech and its MechWarrior if either of the main weapons was damaged.
