Intended as a more modern replacement for venerable light 'Mechs as the Stinger and Wasp for the SLDF, the Mercury is a high-speed recon and interdiction 'Mech, among the very first 'Mechs to carry Myomer Accelerator Signal Circuitry. The Mercury was also notable for its modular replacement system, its weaponry designed to be quickly and easily replaced in far less time than most 'Mech designs, greatly aiding repair. The Mercury was among the many advanced 'Mech designs that became extinct since the fall of the Star League, though the design has reappeared in the current era among ComStar's Com Guard.

The default Mercury, the MCY-99 was considered precursor for more advanced modular system designs in the future. However the Amaris-Kerensky Civil War put a stop to this and bulk of the Mercurys produced went on Operation Exodus.

More a field refit than a factory model, the MCY-98 was the response to the Mercurys MASC and advance armor becoming LosTech. While no longer capable of bursts of extreme speed, the MCY-98 actually boasts improved protection compared to its more advanced brethren, the weight saved the removal of MASC allowing it to carry an extra ton of armor.

Developed by the Com Guards as a dedicated recon 'Mech, the MCY-97 removed half of the 99's weaponry to mount a Beagle Active Probe, trading combat ability for improved sensing ability.

Mechwarrior Online[edit | edit source]

The Mercury is a speculated 'Mech due to its appearance in ISN news articles.

ISN News Feed History[edit | edit source]

Sat. July 7, 3049: Com Guard’s salvage MCY-97 Mercury after a training accident sends the high-speed ’Mech careening into housing project.


Speculation[edit | edit source]

Somewhat of a speed demon laser boat recon, the Mercury was among first in-universe 'Mechs to be equipped with MASC, making it an ideal poster child for the introduction of that system. Due the minimal weight available for weapons, all Mercury variants are armed with lasers in its torso and arms. The specific variant mentioned in the ISN New Feed, the MCY-97, was a designed as recon 'Mech and trades half the standard MCY-99's weaponry to mount a Beagle Active Probe, greatly hampering its combat ability but boosting its effectiveness as a spotter. It would also be reasonable to suppose a similar configuration mounting a Guardian ECM Suite instead.
