After its defeat on [[Tukayyid]], [[Khan]] [[Severen Leroux]] of [[Clan Nova Cat]] began talks with the [[Draconis Combine]], and, to preserve the Clan both militarily and spiritually, ordered the design and production of the '''''Nova Cat''''' [[OmniMech]]. The twelve meter tall<ref>''Path of Glory'', p. 40</ref> totem 'Mech of Clan Nova Cat is based on the ''[[Night Gyr]]'' created by [[Clan Jade Falcon]]. The basic components of this design, combined with its characteristics as an OmniMech, make it very simple to repair and leave leaves room for the large amount of [[double heat sink]]s most variants carry. Thirteen and a half Fifteen tons of standard armor make this 'Mech very difficult to kill.<ref name=TRO:3060/>
==Weapons and Equipment==
*;Alt. Config. A : The first variant is armed with 4 [[ER Large Laser]]s linked to a [[targeting computer]] for increased accuracy. Additional heat sinks keep heat mostly in check, while [[jump jet]]s rocket the 'Mech up to one hundred and twenty meters at a time. BV (1.0) = 2,646<ref name=BV /><ref>''Record Sheets: 3060'', p. 184</ref>. BV (2.0) = 2,629<ref>''Record Sheets: 3060 Unabridged'', p. 261</ref>
*;Alt. Config. B : Alternate Configuration B deviates from the formula of the Primary and Alternate Configurations greatly, as it is a missile boat rather than a sniper, being equipped with six four [[LRM-15]]s. A pair of [[ER Medium Laser]]s provide short-range backup. BV (1.0) = 2,078<ref name=BV /><ref>''Record Sheets: 3060'', p. 185</ref>. BV (2.0) = 2,492<ref>''Record Sheets: 3060 Unabridged'', p. 262</ref>
*;Alt. Config. C : The C configuration, like the B is not all energy weapons, and is equipped with two [[Ultra AC/5]]s, one [[LB 5-X AC]] and Two [[Large Pulse Laser]]s. This makes it very potent against aircraft. BV (1.0) = 1,705<ref name=BV /><ref>''Record Sheets: 3060'', p. 186</ref>. BV (2.0) = 1,944<ref>''Record Sheets: 3060 Unabridged'', p. 263</ref>
*;Alt. Config. D : The D configuration is very similar to the C variant, being equipped with an a pair [[LB 10-X AC]] in the right arm, and three two [[Heavy Large Pulse Laser]]sin the left. The extra heat sinks are still overtaxed by the heavy lasers, though a A targeting computer does make them makes the armaments more accurate. BV (1.0) = 1,671<ref name=BV /><ref>''Record Sheets: 3060'', p. 187</ref>. BV (2.0) = 2,084<ref>''Record Sheets: 3060 Unabridged'', p. 264</ref>
*;Alt. Config. E : The E configuration is close to the B variant, being equipped with a total of four new [[ATM 9]]s with two tons of ammo per launcher, and one [[Large Pulse Laser]] for pinpoint accuracy, finishing off any BattleMechs not destroyed by the multiple ATM launchers. BV (1.0) = 1,882<ref name=BV /><ref>''Record Sheets: Upgrades'', p. 123</ref>. BV (2.0) = 2,191<ref>''Record Sheets: 3060 Unabridged'' p. 265</ref>
