First seen in the Battle of Luthien, this OmniMech soon earned the name Cauldron-Born, after the unstoppable zombies of Irish myth, because of it's ability to take immense damage and remain operational.


The Cauldron-Born arsenal is built around a massive Guass rifle, which occupies the entire 'mechs right arm. A dual-purpose autocannon occupies the left arm. The Cauldron-Born carries two tons of ammunition for each of these weapons. An LRM-10 launcher juts above the birdlike 'mechs left shoulder, while an SRM-2 launcher in an over-and-under mount fills the machine's right breast. A single ER Medium laser is the Cauldron-Born's only energy weapon.


So far, only the First Jaguar Guard Cluster appears to use the Cauldron-Born. Because only three machines have been engaged by Inner Sphere warriors, most believe the design is so new that the other Clans have not yet deployed this 'mech.
