Description[]

The Argus is a fast Heavy OmniMech built May 3062 at the direction of First Prince Victor Steiner-Davion of the Federated Suns. Nicknamed Argus-O, the OmniMech is intended as a low-end Omnimech designed to operate as a moderately fast cavalry machine which could be utilized as a standard design for entirety of AFFS.


  • Wiki Note: The Argus-O was originally intended to be a canon OmniMech, but was cancelled as reworked as a Standard BattleMech with a fix weapons layout. This version the 'Mech came into being for a fan story. The design was conceived originally by Billy Boy Mark II for his fan story The Federated Suns Reborn in it's unique Alternate Universe. The Argus-O was stated out by Outsider7724 based on Billy Boy Mark II's design aspirations.
