       A menacing 'Mech whose characteristic configuration features arms that end in double-barreled large lasers, the Ryoken has earned respect and fear throughout the Successor States---especially in the Draconis Combine, where it first appeared. The Ryoken is versatile, efficient, and deadly, with an extra-light engine, endo steel internal structure, ferro-fibrous armor, and double heat sinks. In all of its configurations, the Ryoken can deliver massive firepower for a medium 'Mech.


       The armies of the Inner Sphere were totally unprepared to face a "Mech equipped with extended-range large and medium lasers on each arm and enough heat sinks to let the pilot use them. These lasers, plus an extended-range medium laser mounted in the 'Mech's head, can devastate a foe in moments. Because of its speed and firepower, this configuration of the Ryoken commands the respect of every armed force in the Successor States.
       A common alternate, Configuration A, carries a giant LRM-20 rack on its right arm to soften up the enemy from a distance. It also sports four medium pulse lasers that can cause great damage quickly, plus ammunition-efficient Streak missiles mounted in its right and left torsos.
       Alternate Configuration B features a massive Ultra-20 autocannon on its left arm. This version shares the Black Hawk's distinctive hexagonal arrangement of six extended-range medium lasers in its right arm.
       Alternate Configuration C, thus far seen only among the Ghost Bears, features an LB 10-X autocannon on its left arm and a large pulse laser on the right. This C model also carries medium pulse lasers in its right and left torsos.
       Alternate Configuration D is a mobile missile platform, with a Narc beacon that gives its impressive array of missile launchers greater accuracy. Not only does it carry a massive LRM-20 launcher and plenty of reloads on each arm, but its left torso also supports two SRM-2 racks. This triangular firing platform allows multiple targeting in an unusual mounting not seen in any Inner Sphere 'Mechs.


       The Ryoken, in several configurations, is one of the most common 'Mechs in the Smoke Jaguar forces. The primary configuration is also common in the other Clans, but the alternates are less widespread. Especially among the Smoke Jaguars, the Ryoken draws so many different assignments that Draconis Combine MechWarriors can expect to battle these OmniMechs in almost any engagement.
