Designed as originally part of the Marauder-Class of BattleMechs for the Star League, the Maelstrom was all but a footnote of designs planned but never built by the Star League. However, it wasn't end of the Mech. Largely unknown to the Inner Sphere and the descendants of the Star League Defense Force that became the Clans, part of the Terran Hegemony and the original Star League Defense Force persists in Deep Periphery.

In deep Hegemony's factories, Hegemony Armed Forces (HAF) set out to bring the design to life. With aid of Clan forces fleeing Clan Homeworlds from prosecution by the early leadership, they gave the hidden nation Clan Technology. With enhance weaponry equal to the Clans, the MTR-3C would be used by the Hegemony in its own army.

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