As posted over at HMP in conjunction with my Clan Standard Lasers thread there. The general gist is that I am curious why Clan Standard Lasers (and PPC's) never saw the light of day. I have created them in my custom weapons editor along the same lines as the LRM's. Everything is the same except the weight which is halved.

Before the development of the Omni-Mech the Clans made numerous other
technological break-throughs, many of which have never been brought to light
due to the sheer magnitude of Omni development. One of these break-throughs
was in the field of laser research.

Basing their designs on the Star League vintage lasers that the SLDF took with
them in their exodus Clan scientists were able to produce much lighter
versions with comparative size and power. This, along with the advances made
in missile technology, led to a revolution in BattleMech development.

A new breed of powerful BattleMech began to roll off the Clan production lines
and Clan Wolf, Kerenskys Chosen, were the first to lead the way with the
Timber Wolf.

The TImber Wolf BattleMech combines the firepower of a Catapult and Marauder
into a stunning war machine. Utilising the new compact extra-light engine has
provided the power output to increase the TImber Wolfs speed over both these
older designs by 25%.

The Timber Wolf's arsenal centres on the arm mounted particle projection
cannons which are supported by two precision enhanced 20 tube long range
missile launchers. FOr close in defence the Timber Wolf mounts four medium
range lasers.

Twelve and half tons of Clan improved ferro-fibrous armour protects the
chassis and pilot and integrated ammunition storage safe-guards the machine
from missile detonation.

The new generation Timber Wolf rolled out of Clan Wolfs Alpha Manufacturing
Complex in April of 2945. In the last four years it has seen wide-spread
deployment to all the Galaxys of the Wolves.

Clan Jade Falcon has just obtained a star of Timber Wolves in a Trial of
Possesion against Clan Wolfs Delta Galaxy.
