Overview[edit | edit source]

The Banshee BNC-3S was Defiance Industries' attempt to turn the Banshee into a typical assault 'Mech, replacing the bulky GM engine with a lighter Pitban 285. While this reduces its maximum speed to 48 km/h, it also frees up a great deal of room for weapons. The 'Mech is armed with two PPCs for long range, an Imperator-B AC/10 to engage an enemy at intermediate ranges, four Magna Mk II Medium Lasers and a Harpoon SRM 6 launcher for short-range combat, and finally a second Small Laser to round out the weapons payload. Five more heat sinks were added, though overheating remains a problem, and its armoring remains the same.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Versatile weapons potential allows for engagement at all ranges.
  • Only other Banshee variant to have arm mounted weaponry

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Runs Hot
  • Engine size is restricted to 345, as compared to the other Banshee variants 400
