*;Lyran 3058 : With the rediscovery of [[Star League]] [[lostech]], [[Defiance Industries]] developed an upgraded version that focuses using advanced tech to improve the tanks weapon array, while retaining as much of original design as possible to ensure easy field upgrade of existing Manticores. The PPC was replaced with a [[Large Pulse Laser]], trading a reduction in range for increased accuracy. The removal of the Medium Laser and associated [[heat sink]]s in exchange for a [[Streak SRM-2]] rack frees up space and weight to add [[Artemis IV FCS]] to the original SRM and LRM racks. For increased survivability, Defiance increased the Manticore's protection by upgrading its armor to Durallex Super [[Ferro-Fibrous]].<ref name=TRO3058>''Technical Readout: 3058'', pp. 54-55</ref><ref name=TRO3058U>''Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade'', pp. 98-99</ref> BV (1.0) = ??, BV (2.0) = 957
*;LBX : Manufactured by NETC based on unproduced plans licensed from Defiance Industriesin [[3060]], this new construction variant replaces the Streak SRM-2 from Defiance's upgrade with a [[Medium Pulse Laser]], mounting a [[LB 10-X AC]] and [[Streak SRM-6]] in the turret, making it an effective anti-[[Battle Armor]] support unit during the [[FedCom Civil War]]. BV (1.0) = ??, BV (2.0) = 964
*;C3 Master : Developed by Bulldog Industriesin [[3063]], this variant replaces the SRM launcher with a [[C3 Master Computer]] and additional armor, also reverting the pulse laser back to the standard PPC. BV (1.0) = ??, BV (2.0) = 934
*;C3 Slave : A second C3 variant developed by Bulldog, this replaced the SRM with [[C3 Slave]] and a [[Streak SRM-4]], again also using a PPC instead of large pulse laser. BV (1.0) = ??, BV (2.0) = 1,008
*;RAC : A experimental version developed in [[3069]] by Jalastar, this variant replaces the large pulse laser and LRM launcher with an [[RAC/5]] and a [[Targeting Computer]], also switching out the Streak launcher for two [[ER Medium Laser]]s. BV (1.0) = ??, BV (2.0) = 1,241
*;HPPC : Produced in [[3074]] during the [[Jihad]], this variant uses a [[Heavy PPC]] mated to a Targeting Computer as its main firepower. A [[Light Fusion Engine]] freed enough weight to add an [[Anti-Missile System]], and the existing missile systems have been replaced by an [[MML-7]] and 2 tons of ammo.<ref>''Technical Readout: 3085'', p. 190</ref> BV (2.0) = 1,149<ref>''Record Sheets: 3085 Unabridged — Old is the New New'', p. 41</ref>
