MechWarrior Online Unveils the Dragon

on November 23, 2011 4:00 PM

Piranha Games unveiled today another of the BattleMech that will join the fray once MechWarrior Online will be released in 2012: the DRG1-N Dragon.

The Dragon is a 60 tons heavy mech armed with two medium lasers, a medium caliber Autocannon (Autocannon/5) and a Long Range Missile Launcher (LRM-10) manufactured by Luthien Armor Works, the largest BattleMech producer of  the Draconis Combine ruled by House Kurita.

It sure looks impressive as it always did, and seeing the new design warms my heart as a MechWarrior veteran since the first edition of the pen & paper RPG. Head past the cut for a three-views schematic:

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
