Original L26 Design: Nathaniel Dragon 010828
M41 variant: Nathaniel Dragon 010927

The Knight L26 started off as a Thunderhead variant, but after so many changes I thought that it should have a completely new identity.

The main concern for the Knight L26 'Mech is cost. For that reason I have kept the Fusion engine, dispite being more limited in space. The Knight L26 has a very low cost compared to Battle Value. Hopefully this will work out for me in the long run during the Beta Campaign.

(This 'Mech was previously refered to as the Black Knight C1. The name has been changed so that it is not confused with the Inner Sphere Black Knight. No components or weapons have been changed.)


The Knight L26 was developed as a heavy weapon mech. With 3 ER PPC's linked to a Targeting Computer and enough heat sinks to handle them, the Knight can cause a considerable amount of damage on a regular basis at nearly any distance.


The Knight M41 was developed 2 years after the Knight L26. Cost wasn't considered in the developement of this model - only damage was. With the addition of another ER PPC and an ER Large Laser the combat heat level rose with this mech. Adjustments were made to add more heat sinks, but the design just burns too hot. A good pilot can use the ER PPCs most of the time, while the ER Large Laser would be fired as a back up weapon, such as when the mech needs to cool. Since the left arm doesn't have lower actuators the arm was constructed primarily to act as a shield for the left torso.


The Knight L26 is an original design specifically created for deployment with the Dreadnok Raiders on Rasalhague.

The M41 has not yet been seen on the battlefield, but is rumored to also be deployed with the Dreadnok Raiders but the exact territory is unknown.
