Description[edit | edit source]
Developed as much to replace units lost in the Blakists' Jihad as to prove the enduring industrial strength of the Draconis Combine, the Wight is a daring and innovative 'Mech design. With the loss of their main facility on the Combine's capital in 3068, Luthien Armor Works was caught between a government contract it could not refuse, yet could not fulfill due to lack of facilities, resulting in a surprising solution. Buying up a large volume of worn out 10-K model Panthers sent to Wakazashi Enterprises for refurbishment, LAW stripped each 'Mech down to its base Endo Steel skeleton and then contracted with StarCorp Industries of Son Hoa in the Lyran Alliance to share the cost of a new design, shipping some of these frames to StarCorps with the paired ER lasers mounted to outfit as they wished. Those frames LAW retained, it added a Compact Fusion Engine, double heat sinks and Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor to give the Wight surprising longevity for a front line light 'Mech.
