The Nightstar is a 95 ton beast of a mech. All of it's weapons are cockpit height and 2 of it's 3 variants have lower arm actuators. The main variant comes with a 285XL but a different one has a 380xl. A 3rd variant also includes JJ. It mainly has ballistics in it's arms with energy weapons in the torsos. It's lore is that it's the last design in the Marauder family of mechs, the ultimate Marauder if you will.

Here's the 3 variants and their HP's thanks to Hit the Deck:

The 9FC has a 380XL stock, the 9SS has no hands nor LAA as well as JJ. The 9J should get the most inflation or something to help it out when compared to the other variants.

Thank you to all those that shared their artistic talents. For anyone reading this if you're inspired by this mech, feel free to draw it or write a story. Send it to me and I'll post it in the OP.

As you all can see, the Nightstar is a beautiful & powerful mech. I believe its one of the few mechs that could matchup decently with the Kodiak. Hopefully it'll be added to MWO & with your support I believe it will be. Tweet Russ, vote for the NSR in polls, post your support here and on Reddit ( https://www.reddit.c..._nightstar2017/ ) and hopefully #Nightstar2017 will happen.

It looks sort of like a Marauder-Shadow Cat hybrid. I like it!

Looks like the Ebon Jaguar a bit...

this one does just about. But oh well, if IS wants their heavier version of it so be it.

Yeah my thought when I looked at it was it looks like the EBJ and the Marauder had a baby. Not that it looks bad or anything....

Bishop took a bit of inspiration from the Jag because the existing art was pretty sparse & he thought it looked somewhat like it.

Bullet torso, recoilless arms, and chicken legs, kind of impossible not to share DNA with the EBJ.

The Nightstar was built using the same basic design elements as the Marauder, so the similar appearance is understandable. I'll take it, along with the Annihilator, the Devastator, and the Hammerhands. They can call it the 'Big Bore Bundle'.

Would have been perfect except for the fact that we don't have UAC20 and LB20X for Inner Sphere yet. And I don't think PGI will be adding it any time soon. And if they don't see 3 variants with current tech, they're not as likely to do it. They could invent a 4th variant like they did with the SHC, but I doubt they'd invent 2 of 4 variants.

Just replace the LBX & Uac with regular Ac20s & ammo, no major issue. Weapons have been replaced before.

The Enforcer & Mauler both have multiple made up variants as well.
