The Helepolis, an heavy artillery BattleMech designed by the Terran Hegemony as highly mobile artillery piece for long -range fire support. A Variant of the original 'Mech, modification of the original HEP-3H Heleopis were done at direction of the Terran Hegemony Commanding General Rita Mitchel, whom needed better guard units for command lances.

The deep periphery manufacture, Hegemony Industries, would recreated the Mech by reverse engineering existing centuries old 'Mech they had on hand. The HEP-3Hb would be used by the Hegemony, in the formations plan to equip each of their Independent Regiments with a full Company consisting of six Helepolis Artillery Mechs, 2 Daedalus GTX2A forming the 2 firing lances with a Command Lance of bodyguard Battlemechs.[2]

This variant was created by fan writer, 2ndAcr, for his fan book Fate Can Be Cruel - Book One.

Armament and Equipment[]

The Hegemony Industries would change the Mech's standard chassis for a Endo Steel based one which allowed them to upgrade the engine to a 300-rated Fusion to increase it's speed.

The design's principle weapon is it's Sniper Artillery piece, while retaining the HEP-3H's ER Large Laser. The HEP-3Hb's three ton of Sniper ammo was added to the design while removing the SRM6 and LRM10 from the Battlemech. To provide close quarters combat in the place of the missile launchers, 3 medium lasers were added, 2 in center, one in the left torso. Armor protection would be increased to the maximum. This used up the additional space freed up from removal of the missile launchers and their ammo.
