Actually, BattleCorps fiction: Betrayal of Ideals, written by Blaine Lee Pardoe has it that the Warhead was fired from a Snow Raven warship aimed for a dropship that had Not-Named sibkos and solehma. At the last moment the Dropship evaded and the warhead hit Dehra Dun. Of course that is not how it is recorded.


I chose to ignore Blaine Lee Pardoe and his blasphemous claim, as far as I can tell the only reason the Snow Ravens exist and have survived this long is because the fluff writers enjoy screwing them over on the rare times they even bother to mention them :)

they didn't refit grinner, they built a new one from scratch using the plans in the wolfhound's computers.

With the idea of Grinner, one could also say that the Timber Wolf Pryde is also the rarest, since only one person ever piloted one modified in such a way.

thing is, that the timber wolf pryde simply uses omni tech to make a new configuration. it is not a new mech. you can take any timber wolf and modify it to that config. with grinner, it was built from the ground up as a new mech, and it got a separate mech designation (not just variant or named after a pilot) from every single other wolfhound in existence. instead of being a WLF-2 Wolfhound, it is now the Wolfhound IIC. Since every single other IIC mech seems to be a new mech instead of just a variant of its old mech, the wolfhound IIC, of which there is only a single mech, should be considered a new mech entirely.

I saw that someone answered this as the Nova, but I believe it might actually be the Stone Rhino considering how scarce it is described and how commanders cant really afford to loose one.

Q: What clan mech diverts its jump jets over part of its chassis to provide a more stable and controllable jump jet? and what is that part it diverts it onto.


since I don't think anyone answered this question, goshawk. its swooping pauldron design.

You are correct about them

That is correct but mean after that. There is a rumour of them still being around, pulling strings in a certain organization.

As for your question Diana Pryde of Clan Jade Falcon and Phelan Kell of Clan Wolf going of my memories of reading the novels many years ago so could be mistaken.

Malvina Hazen would kiss the people she killed. She even went so far as to kiss the Khan of Clan Jade Falcon in the vacuum of space before killing her. She piloted a Shrike and she is known for leading an extreme crusader faction of the Falcons in a civil war and an invasion of the Republic of the Sphere. I hate her character.

Q: Which Clan 'Mech is more commonly known among the Clans by its Inner Sphere designation than its Clan name?

For the Falcon's Prey expansion of the MechWarrior: Dark Age/Age of Destruction game, a new Jade Falcon Bloodname was introduced - a self-insert of one of the game's developers. What is this Bloodname? Bonus: how many holders has this Bloodname been Reaved to?


So the Melvina Hazen one got answered, but not this? Come on now :)

Your answer to the Question was correct. As for the second half of your question, I believe they joined the Blakists, if memory serves, but I might be wrong.
