Description

As the AFFC was looking for OmniVehicles designs, StarCorps Industries quickly reacted. While StarCorps Industries built only 'Mechs, it gathered a military vehicle design team and released a protoype in record times. Thoughnot being the only OmniVehicle submitted to consideration, the Manteuffel (named after the long line of Lyran armor generals) revealed itself to be the best : officialy it fulfilled all requirements but unofficially StarCorps Industries greased all the right hands... This tank is assigned only to highests within the LAAF and AFFS because of its expense and technologies it uses. Lyran Guards; Davion Brigade of Guards and Deneb Light Cavalry RCTs receive these new units. (the last being said to be the best combined arms units in the Inner Sphere, explaining this assignation).

Armament

With every version able to deliver 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 Lasers and a deadly Rotary AC/5, it can cripple any unit, 'Mech or armor. It also mounts a C3 Slave module.

Variants

Alt. Config. A : The most commons is built around the same principle : an Ultra AC/20 is packed with two Medium Lasers and one ER Small Laser. It also mounts a C3 Slave module. 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.
