Overview[edit | edit source]

A Clan Invasion-era version of the classic 1X, the Cataphract CTF-3L mounts an XL Engine to free up weight to upgrade its weaponry, replacing the Autocannon/10 with a new LB 10-X Autocannon, swapping the standard PPC for an Extended range model and removing the four standard Medium Lasers for four Medium Pulse Lasers. The 3L is also notable for its inclusion of MASC giving it suprising agility for its weight.

The CTF-3L(L) (Loyalty Variant) was available as a reward from the 2016 Customer Appreciation Program, with a unique skin and a 30% Cbill.png bonus. The standard non-Loyalty variant is expected to be available for MC and C-Bills some time in 2017.
