The BLR-1GB is an enhanced BattleMaster variant that was developed for the SLDF's Royal Divisions. This model boasts superb weaponry, armor, and heat management systems. Extremely rare and expensive, but worth the price.

Loadouts[ | ]

With 46.5 tons of payload the BLR-1GB is a 4 ton improvement over the 1G model. The BLR-1GB also has double engine heat sinks that enable it to sink a base 60 heat per round.

Laser Flanker With 8 energy, 2 missile, and 1 support hard point it's easy to see the BLR-1GB intended use. Whether brawling or sniping it's above average speed and ability to mount 4 jump jets make it an ideal 'mech for making crippling shots to an enemie's side or back.

Opinion[ | ]

The BLR-1GB is by no means a bad 'mech, but it struggles to find a place on a lance with access to SDLF tech. You can get better payload and initiative out of the SDLF Black Knight without sacrificing any speed, jump capability, or energy hard points. You can get better payload out of most other assault 'mechs if you're willing to sacrifice some speed. It's a bit of a jack-of-all-trades 'mech; good at several things, but master of none.
