Description[edit | edit source]
The Erinyes ProtoMech was the first designed and produced by Clan Jade Falcon. After seeing how poorly it fared in battle against the Lyran Alliance and Clan Wolf-in-Exile forces, Khan Marthe Pryde ordered the project terminated in 3064. The problem with the Erinyes was simple: It was a proof-of-concept design intended to show that the ProtoMech program could work. Unfortunately the slow speed, light armor, and paltry weapon system doomed the Erinyes to failure. Most of these ProtoMechs and their pilots were reassigned to the Periphery flank of the Jade Falcon Occupation Zone and to rear area security duties.
The Erinyes (and their pilots) did perform well during the Hellion's Fury campaign. Using the Erinyes as an ambush hunter, the Jade Falcon forces on several worlds seriously damaged Clan Ice Hellion forces. (It is important to note that the ambushes only occurred after the Hellions broke zellbrigen. In the stand-up fights the Jade Falcons prefer, the Erinyes is little more than a target. Given that the Falcons have been known to withhold zellbrigen when fighting Inner Sphere forces, this use of the Erinyes should not be ignored.)
