Harbinger VTOL - Mercenary by Centurion13 Harbinger VTOL - Mercenary by Centurion13
This is the Harbinger, a VTOL intended to bolster mercenary units working the Periphery while regular army units are being moved towards expected hot spots in the Federated Commonwealth of 3063.

Unfortunately, this is part of a package - a tank, a 'Mech and a VTOL - that was nixed by the politically unreliable nature of mercs in general. The Harbinger was the only one to see production.

It carries three machine guns, three SRM-6s and a mast-mounted Beagle Active Probe on a 30-ton chassis which moves 8/12 and carries about two and a half tons of ferro armor. Excellent for anti-personnel ops, there is only a single ton of ammo for each weapon type, precluding extended engagements.

Art by Stephen Huda for the fan-produced TRO:3063.

Absolutely awesome! Most of the VTOLs in BattleTech look wierd or odd, hence why I have never fielded them, though I would definitely field this beast xD

Well, it certainly does LOOK vicious, doesn't it? The warload works well if you field them in pairs or a lance. I have spammed Clan 'Mechs right off the field with a lance of Goblins - and this machine moves twice as fast!

That's awesome. I'll definitely see about fielding these if my own campaign progresses to the time period they are released for use. :D

Er Steve... How come this is the first time I'm seeing this coolness sir? Did you forget I was looking for a decent VTOL escort?

! want several Level IIs of these if you don't mind. They'd be ideal for escorting our Karnov and Anhur VTOLS when we assault Robe complexes.

It's a seriously nice looking Chopper.

He is. Dorian playtests our designs whenever he gets the chance. He was the one who playtested the Sounder and Machete aerospace fighters.
