Battletech - Kharon by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Kharon by Shimmering-Sword
Another commission for :iconmr-balk: ~mr-balk. Stepped up from the usual single mech commission, I had fun applying what I'm learning from this overload of battletech work lately :D (and more to come)

A Society Kharon 70 ton heavy mech stomps forward laying into an Oro tank. An Osteon and Cephalus are supporting.
Kharon loadout:
1 Improved Heavy Large Laser
1 Extended Range Large Laser
1 Improved Advanced Tactical Missile 12 Launcher
1 Medium Pulse Laser
1 Extended Range Small Laser
Nova CEWS and a Targeting Computer

Lao Hu redesign of what would be a Society mech. Both Large Lasers in the right arm with the Heavy on top and the ER on the bottom. Med Pulse (closer to the body/gold beam) and ER Small in the left arm. iATM 12 in the left torso with at least 3 tons of ammo for both longevity and flexibility and either a CASE or CASE II to protect from ammo explosion. Guessing the electronics are in the right torso. Going to guess an XL engine, leaning towards a 280 size to fit the necessary to supply both the necessary armor and heat sinks to keep the mech going in battle, though I won't rule out a 350 engine.
Now that the clinical commentary is out of the way, a very impressive looking mech and flexible weapons loadout. Only way I could see it being more flexible is if it included Jump Jets. Nice job adding cannon mechs in the background, gives it a more authentic feel.

Big one is the Osteon, sarana could help you there.

Why start a second battletech group though? The Mech Warriors the-mech-warriors.deviantart.c… has everything covered.

Similar, but not quite.

looks like a kitbash of a Lao Hu and a Cataphract.  Cool.
