Just because I felt like doing a BattleTech crossover...



Fenwolf-Class Assault Walker

During the course of the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance was forced to make do with a collection of outdated Clone Wars-era mechs that were often badly outmatched by their more advanced Imperial counterparts. Things began to change, however, with the covert support of Sullust's SoroSuub Corporation. SoroSuub's nascent Walker Design Group managed to combine many of the best features of the Alliance's current walker types into a single, highly capable platform, with good speed and armor backing up a well-developed and versatile weapons suite. In addition, the Fenwolf features two shoulder-mounted weapon pods that allow it to carry mission-specialized heavy weapons. Pod types include turbo-laser cannon for long-range anti-vehicle strikes, auto-blaster turrets for anti-aircraft defense and multi-round missile launchers for artillery support or direct anti-armor attack.

Craft: SoroSuub's Fenwolf-Class

I like!
Maybe the Sorroco quad mech could be done as a replacement for the AT-AT.

The Sirocco actually bears a lot of resemblance to the AT-AT, but as many guns as it carries, any crossover I did would be a moving gun platform with little or no troop transport capability. Same basic frame, with different missions.

To me, the Goliath (the older version) is more of a cross to the AT-AT.

But the Sirocco actually has AT-AT legs, with a visually similar body. The "head" looks more like the front of a Floating Fortress, but still...

Are you looking to do any other mechs? Like say the Scorpion (another quad), or one of the more iconic ones like the Atlas, locust, Shadow hawk, phoneix hawk etc?

Maybe, if I see one I like. I've skimmed over some of the visuals of Battletech Mechs, but not all of them really feel like they "fit" with Star Wars. Star Wars has quadruped and hexapod walkers, but for the most part, its bipedal walkers are the chicken-walker style. The reason I picked the Timber Wolf for my crossover was because it looked close enough to a Star Wars-type bipedal walker that I could explain its visual differences by making the product of a company other than KDY/Rothana.

Now, I would love to introduce some older model walker types for the Alliance to use in walker-on-walker battles. Maybe some of the lighter, jump-equipped battletech models engaging in hit & run attacks against mixed forces of AT-ATs and Fenwolves...

Perhaps they don't need to be 'walkers', instead they could be large battle droids, much like those ones we saw in the intro to Dark Empire.

That could work, but like I said, I'd like to find some light or medium mechs to stat over for Alliance service. The starting point for that is going to be finding a well-done picture that will inspire me to write a stat for it.

Try looking at MWO concept art and screen grabs for inspiration.

It's easier to find information if I can start with a vehicle class name for the image search.

The ones that have at least sparked some interest for me are...

the Blood Asp (as a Medium Assault Mech precursor to the Fenwolf)...


the Locust (as a precursor of the AT-ST)...


and the Catapult (with either missile pods or the air defense auto-blaster pods).


If I were to stat these, they would probably be older, Clone Wars era mechs with stats not quite as good as the AT-AT and Fenwolf (as would befit older equipment in Alliance service). Mech / Walker battles would require the Alliance to be more tactically inventive and fight hit-and-run style battles (as befits Alliance tactical doctrine.

If I were to stat the Scirocco...

it would almost certainly be an Imperial AT-AT big gun support variant, with none of the AT-AT's troop transport ability, but lots of heavy guns and even tougher armor.

Maybe that could be a competition (winner gets bragging rights!) Stat out the Sirroco for SW use!

There's sort of already precedent for it. A Scirocco could easily be the SPHA-T of the Classic Era. EDIT: Plus, if it is based on an AT-AT Hull, it could be deployed using existing AT-AT landing barges.

The thing that I really like is, combined with my alternate scale system, these walkers now present credible threats to smaller capital ships, and walkers massed in a drop zone could be a serious impediment to an assault landing.

Looking at the pictures of the Sirroco, it has 2 big @$$ cannons, and 7 smaller ones (all in turrets, but 2 are aimed rearward).

So if i was to stat it out i would say..
The Z9 Sirroco walker is made for the express purposes of breaking the defensive lines and structures in enemy bases. Unlike the AT-AT it is based on, all that 'cargo and passenger' space is used up for heavier power cells, generators and even a pair of shield generators. The armor is increased, and the legs are placed out a little wider, to give the walker more stability.
The Z-9 saw only limited use during the time frame of the New republic, until its production facility was destroyed by the Yuzzhan Vong 8 months into their invasion.
