==Description==
As the [[AFFC]] was looking for [[OmniVehicle]] designs, [[StarCorps Industries]] quickly reacted. While StarCorps Industries had only built [['Mech]]s, it gathered a military vehicle design team and released a prototype in record time. Though not the only OmniVehicle submitted for consideration, the Manteuffel (named after the long line of [[Lyran]] armor generals) revealed itself to be the best. Officially it fulfilled all requirements, but unofficially StarCorps Industries had greased all the right palms.<ref name=TRO3067pp20-21/>
This tank is assigned only to highest-profile units within the [[LAAF]] and [[AFFS]] because of its expense and technologies it uses, such as the [[Lyran Guards]] in the [[Lyran Alliance|Alliance]] and [[Davion Brigade of Guards]] in the [[Federated Suns|Suns]]. The [[Deneb Light Cavalry]] [[RCT]]s also received some as they are one of the best combined-arms brigades in all of the [[Inner Sphere]], so they can make good use of the expensive tanks.<ref name=TRO3067pp20-21/>
==Armament==
With every version able to deliver an awesome amount of firepower while being able to keep up other units, the Manteuffel is a serious tank to consider. The primary variant sports three [[ER Medium Laser]]s and a deadly [[Rotary AC/5]]. It can cripple any unit, 'Mech or armor. It also mounts a [[C3 Slave]] module to coordinate fire with other C3 units. <ref> RS 3067 p. 15 <name=TRO3067pp20-21/ref>
==Alternate Configurations==
*Alt. Config. A - The most common alternate configuration is built around the same principle of short-range firepower. It mounts an [[Ultra Autocannon/20]] in the turret, while its front is packed with two [[Medium Laser]]s and one [[ER Small Laser]]. It also mounts a [[C3 Slave]] module. <ref name=TRO3067pp20-21/> BV (1.0) = 987 (C3: 137)<ref> RS 3067 p. 15 <name=COp126/ref>
*Alt. Config. B - The last variant, thought uncommon, is considered to be the most feared with its [[Heavy Gauss Rifle]] plus one [[Medium Laser]] and one [[ER Small Laser]] for close in defense. BV (1.0)= 1028
