The CN9-AH, like the CN9-YLW, forgoes the hand and lower actuator in the right arm in order to fit an AC 20. It has three ballistic hardpoints in the right arm, so it could also fit multiple smaller autocannons as well. The left torso has three missile hardpoints. Unfortunately, this variant lacks the two beloved energy hardpoints in the CT that Centurions are known for.
The CN9-AH was offered as a loyalty reward BattleMech, featuring a unique skin and a 30% bonus. It was rewarded to any player who purchased before October 21, 2014. Whether this particular variant will ever be made available as a loyalty reward again in the future is unknown. The skin has an angel on the right shoulder against a white background, with yellow rope hanging down across the lower torso and around both legs.
- Can equip an AC 20
- The top two missile hardpoints will allow up to 20 tubes. The third (bottom) missile hardpoint will allow up to 15 tubes.
- No CT energy hardpoints. Can't zombie.
- Lopsided Armament - Loss of the right arm removes most of this mech's firepower. The left arm has no weapons.
Arm Critical Slots
- Left Arm: Shoulder, Upper Arm Actuator, 10 open slots.
- Right Arm: Shoulder, Upper Arm Actuator, Lower Arm Actuator, Hand Actuator, 8 open slots.
The massive AC 20 cannot normally fit onto most 'Mechs arms. Special extra critical slots are provided to allow for it by removing the hand and lower arm actuator. As a result, the arms cannot turn sideways for extra reach. Although the arm has three ballistic slots, the AC20 occupies the entirety of the critical slot space in the arm.
