    A common design in the SLDF, it was inevitable that the Clans would upgrade the Thunderbolt.
    The Thunderbolt IIC first served as a front-line 'mech, and then became a common
    second-line machine as traditonal battlemechs were phased out of front line service in favor
    of the new omnimechs.  Today, only the Blood Spirits continue to use this in their front
    line clusters.

    The Thunderbolt has always been one of the most dangerous 'mechs on the battlefield, and the
    IIC model is no exception.  The Thunderbolt IIC mounts a mix of pulse lasers, Streak SRMs,
    and Artemis IV guided LRMs, weapons chosen for their accuracy as well as their firepower.
    The emphasis on accuracy makes this 'mech especially suited for the often less skilled
    pilots of second line clusters.

    The Thunderbolt IIC serves in the toumans of Clans Blood Spirit, Coyote, Wolf, Star Adder,
    Diamond Shark, Ghost Bear, Goliath Scorpion, and Hell's Horses.  The only one held by Clan
    Wolf in Exile serves in the Second Wolf Strike Grenadiers as one Star Captain Elrin's ride.
