DescriptionEdit

The Nacon Armored Scout was created by Clan Jade Falcon to act as a recon unit. Instead of using expensive BattleMechs for recon, this armored scout allows a Falcon commander to find an opponent and direct heavier units into combat. With a top speed of 162 km/h, the Nacon can quickly find an enemy force and disengage. Protection comes from five tons of Ferro-Fibrous Armor, which provides enough protection for quick escapes. However, the rear armor can only withstand a single PPC hit while the front face can withstand more than four PPC hits. This has encouraged some crews to engage heavier forces head on.

Weapons and EquipmentEdit

The Nacon uses a single ATM-6 with two tons of ammunition for its main striking power against heavy targets. The missile system is backed up by two Light Machine Guns for anti-infantry and anti-battle armor work. The relatively light weaponry apparently is used to discourage pursuit rather than engage in a front-line battle.

VariantsEdit

There are no variants of the Nacon as of 3145.

NotesEdit

  • The Nacon was first created by Wizkids' MechWarrior Dark Age Collectable Miniatures game as a part of its Falcons Prey expansion set. The figure was used by four main factions during the release as a common combat vehicle. The Nacon was later adapted by Catalyst Game Labs and redefined in the tabletop game once the company advanced the franchise's timeline to 3145.
