Code-named the Dasher by the Royal KungsArmé because of its
incredible bursts of speed, this 'Mech is unlike any ever produced in
the Inner Sphere, during the Star League era or since. It carries a
load of weapons that is ample for a light 'Mech produced in the Inner
Sphere, despite being smaller than any other Clan 'Mech yet seen in
the field. An excellent reconnaissance 'Mech because of its quick
pace, the Dasher can get out of a tight spot by engaging its Myomer
Accelerator Signal Circuitry. Its armor is thin, but the Dasher is so
fast that it is difficult to hit.

In its primary configuration, the Dasher can give a good account
of itself against light 'Mechs of the Inner Sphere. Its exceptional
speed allows it to get into close range regardless of its opponent's
actions, and use its short-range missiles and medium lasers to good
effect. If facing a larger enemy, the Dasher simply retreats to
friendly lines, leaving its foe far behind. Another popular tactic is
for the Dasher to race to the enemy's rear, cutting down opposing
'Mechs before they can respond. This has worked out badly on
occasion, primarily because of the Rasalhagian practice of forming
lances into a column. On several occasions, a Dasher has sped around
a light 'Mech, only to be cut down by a medium 'Mech following
several hundred meters behind.

The Dasher is one of the less common Clan designs, not in general
use because of the specialized roles it plays. It is seen most
frequently among the forces of Clan Ghost Bear, who favor it over
other reconnaissance 'Mechs.

Known Variants:
Alternate Configuration A has been seen only on rare occasions,
but has been used to devastating effect. This configuration uses its
Beagle active probe to locate hidden enemy positions and its
target-acquisition gear to rain down flights of Arrow IV missiles
from other members of its Cluster many kilometers away. It uses its
Streak short-range missiles and anti-missile system to hold its place
on the battlefield for as long as possible, then returns to the
supporting 'Mechs in its unit with amazing speed.
Using its Guardian electronic countermeasures to protect its
Starmates, a Dasher equipped with Alternate Configuration B leads a
force into an enemy city or other built-up area where hostilities are
expected. Its medium pulse lasers and machine gun can swiftly destroy
enemy infantry, and the A-pod helps keep sappers off the 'Mech's
In Alternate Configuration C, the Dasher performs long-range fire
support, a role for which it is not particularly well-suited. Though
it carries double LRM-5 launchers and an anti-missile system to
protect itself from return fire, it cannot carry nearly as many
weapons as other Clan designs. However, no 'Mech can fall back to a
new position as quickly as the Dasher.
When the Clans expect to mix it up with other 'Mechs and have no
other concern, they equip the Dasher with Alternate Configuration D.
Though this variant occasionally has a problem with heat build-up, it
can deliver an accurate and deadly hail of laser fire at opposing
