Description[]

The modern variant of the venerable standard design,the Valkyrie Light OmniMech began production in 3070 May 3062 as a continuation of First Prince Victor Steiner-Davion of the Federated Suns initiative to modernized storied Davion designs.

Better known by it's nickname, Valkyrie-O, the OmniMech is intended primarily as a light weight fire support 'mech for Lance formations or larger. Not seen as successful of a conversion as its heavier armored counterpart, the Javelin-O, the designer argue the its is meant to stay at range rather closing in on it's target and use it's superior speed to counter act it's opponents.


  • Wiki Note: The Valkyrie-O was reworked from the Standard BattleMech with it 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 Valkyrie-O was stated out by Outsider7724 based on Billy Boy Mark II's design aspirations.

Deployment[]

The Valkyrie-O was built as part efforts to bolster the ranks of the army of the reborn Federated Suns. It was first deployed during 3071, while the Operation Harvest was still underway fighting the Word of Blake Protectorate.


Armament and Equipment[]

Designed 10 tons larger than the original, Valkyrie-O comes with 10.5 ton OmniPod capacity. However, unlike its originator, the Valkyrie-O designers traded it's Jump Jets for extra tonnage. To make up the difference, engineers up scaled it's power plant to a Omni 245-rated Fusion Engine giving the design extra speed over the original, while it's frame is strengthened with Endo Steel. This gave the Valkyrie-O increase speed not unlike faster lights half its size. The design is protected by 5.5 tons of standard armor, with center torso able handle a direct from a Gauss Rifle. While some critics found the low armor & lack of Jump Jets on what was consider a sturdy design disturbing. For tonnage for weapons, speed, and equipment gained from trade off of armor was found to being questionable choice by designers.

Primary Configuration
Intended as long range support, the Prime features pair of Artemis IV guided 10-Tube Long Range Missile Launchers in the right torso. Backing up these weapons is pair of Medium Lasers found in the right arm. The design carriers eleven Double Sinks to round out the 'Mech heat management system.

Ammunition: The Prime carries 1 ton of Artemis IV LRM reloads in the Right Torso, with ammo in a CASE OmniPod.
