CTF-0XP[edit source]

The CTF-0XP is a Cataphract with an ECM suite. The stock loadout is poor, but its hardpoint layout is similar to the 1X. It has four energy hardpoints and one ballistic hardpoint, so with some investment in upgrades, the weapon loadout can be improved a great deal.

CTF-1X[edit source]

The CTF-1X is the original production model of the Cataphract and was what the newer CTF-3D was based on, but is less expensive. A PPC and AC 10 give it a respectable punch at medium range, and four Medium Lasers provide this urban hunter with even more firepower at close range.

CTF-2X[edit source]

The 2X is another early model. This one runs cooler than either other models and carries two more tons of armor. This is achieved by replacing the PPC, LRM 5, and two of the Medium Lasers for a Large Laser, and SRM 4.

CTF-3D[edit source]

The Cataphract CTF-3D makes use of an advanced light weight XL Engine to free up tonnage for weapons. This tonnage is put to use by including a new LB 10-X Autocannon which can fire both solid rounds for punching holes in armor, and cluster rounds for seeking out and damaging exposed internals. An Ultra AC/5 also provides medium to long range reach at twice the rate of fire of its standard counterpart. Finally, four Medium Lasers provide reliable up-close defense. The low speed is offset by the inclusion of Jump Jets to allow the Cataphract to conduct hit-and-run operations.

CTF-4X[edit source]

The CTF-4X is a third early model. It carries the maximum amount of armor that can be mounted on the chassis. Dual Autocannon 5s are supplied with ample amounts of ammunition. The Large Laser provides some backup for the autocannons in the unlikely chance they run dry and an LRM 5 provides some long range striking ability.

CTF-IM[edit source]

The CTF-IM "Ilya Muromets" is the Hero variant of the Cataphract, and is primarily armed with autocannons. The name derives from a slavic hero, which is well known there from many tunes and legends, telling his deeds. Crippled until the age of 33, mysteriously healed by mead, he got supernatural strength from a moribund knight and with his speaking horse he liberated the besieged city of Kiyiv from the awful Tartar. He's the only legendary person ever that was made Saint from local church. Like all Hero 'Mechs, the -IM provides a 30% Cbill.png  C-Bill bonus, and can only be purchased with MC.png .
