Description[edit | edit source]
The Shrike BattleMech, popular with commanders for its heavy and accurate weapons, is the Jade Falcon answer to Clan Wolf's heavy Tundra Wolf. Its distinctive wings, common among later Jade Falcon designs during the revitalization of the 3110s, allow the Shrike to dissipate heat almost as fast as it gains it. Nonetheless, this 'Mech, like the Gyrfalcon, quickly rises in temperature and needs to be piloted with careful attention to heat management, despite the dissipation capabilities of the wings.
The 'Mech's origins can be traced to the Onager. The Eagle Craft Group of Erewhon took the older design and styled it similarly to the earlier Eyrie and Gyrfalcon. Admired for its capacities, the Shrike became a highly sought-out design for Jade Falcon commanders after its performance during a raid on La Grave against Clan Wolf in 3115.
