Description[edit | edit source]

The second BattleMech model introduced by the Free Worlds League, the Hector entered service in 2471, only one year after the original Icarus. Built by Corean Enterprises on Stewart, it used a simple design suited for mass production and quickly became the workhorse of the Free Worlds League Military's 'Mech regiments. Limited by the Primitive Technology it was built with, the Hector's performance was generally considered lackluster. Its good top speed came at a big price; the large engine took up so much mass that the 'Mech ended up undergunned. It also had endurance problems as its twelve tons of primitive armor did not provide adequate protection to deal with heavy opponents and it also lacked enough heat sinks for its armament. Overall the Hector proved largely unpopular in its time but was just effective enough to last into the 2520s when it was taken out of service in favor of newer, better designs. No Hectors survived the Age of War, making it one of the earliest lost 'Mech designs
