Description[edit | edit source]
Of the three designs that formed the Spectral LAM series built and deployed by the Word of Blake, the Yurei was the middleweight design, although as the Yurei entered service a year before the Waneta, this wouldn't be immediately obvious to the various opponents of the Blakists. The Yurei drew its name from the ancient Japanese name for a kind of demonic shape-shifting spirit.
The Yurei featured a small cockpit, and carried one ton of fuel, but was generally an indifferent performer when compared to dedicated BattleMech or aerospace fighter designs, relying on the shock of its ability to transform, the general effectiveness of the Clantech weaponry it used and the abilities of the Manei Domini pilot to compensate for the mediocre speed and weapons payload compared to the opponents it faced in battle.
With the destruction of the former Brigadier Corporation factory on Gibson the only known manufacturing lines for the Yurei no longer exist, making it an extinct design to the best of anyone's knowledge, and the little information that is known is drawn largely from studying salvage left from combat actions.
