================================================================================================
Overview:
    The Deimos is a Snow Raven design over two decades in the making. The first reports of a new
    assault OmniMech slipped out of Lum in the mid-3060s. These early rumors spoke of a massive
    machine built to the standards of the Ravens? aerospace technologies, able to support flight
    operations but still hold its own against any ground opponent. Between the opening shots of
    the Jihad, the White Out, and the veil of silence that had settled over the Pentagon and
    Kerensky Cluster, nothing more was heard of this Homeworld project. It was not until the
    start of the 3080s that fresh tales of a Deimos project were again circulating in
    intelligence circles. In February of this year the Snow Ravens put an end to the rumors,
    unveiling the Deimos OmniMech.

Capabilities:
    The Deimos? broad-shouldered, digitigrade frame is similar to several other modern Clan
    designs such as the Ghost Bears? Bruin, the Horses? Hellstar, or the Wolves? Night Wolf and
    Blood Reaper, giving it solid stability in motion and under fire. The broad foot assembly
    gives it additional stability, making it more accurate when firing in anti-aerospace mode.
    The feet are further enhanced by electromagnetic grippers to allow a Deimos to fix itself in
    place on the hull of a DropShip.
    
    A 255-rated extra-light engine gives the Ravens? assault ?Mech an average speed for its
    eighty-five ton mass. This is a nod to the efficiencies Clan culture admires, as an
    identical power plant is mounted on the new Omen second-line machine. However, the Deimos
    lacks the weight-inefficient jump jets of the Omen in most of its configurations. Instead it
    mounts a MASC system to give short-term boosts to its fifty-five kilometers per hour running
    speed.
    
    The Deimos can mount up to forty-three tons of equipment in addition to its fixed
    torso-mounted extended-range lasers and the anti-missile system concealed just behind the
    cockpit. This pod space gives it one of the largest load-outs of any OmniMech. The Prime is
    a dedicated anti-aerospace platform, equipped with a sextet of light Ultra-class autocannons
    and two fifteen-tube LRM racks. Even with three tons of autocannon ammunition the Prime
    needs to remain close to supply lines. The A is the Deimos? true assault machine, with dual
    LB 10-X and ER PPCs providing hole punching and damage seeking at the cost of a heavy heat
    burden and no long-range missiles. The B is an extended mission configuration, with ER PPCs
    and large pulse lasers giving unlimited firepower, while the four LRM 10 racks are backed by
    six tons of ammunition. The C is a mobile assault platform, modifying the A?s armament with
    ER lasers and Ultra-10 autocannons plus four improved jump jets, giving it an impressive
    jump range for an eighty-five ton machine. Like the A and B configurations, it mounts a ECM
    suite. The S is identical to the C except that the ECM suite is replaced by an internal fuel
    tank, allowing for effective space operations.

Deployment:
    The Deimos has already seen a large production run, with at least one unit being sent to
    nearly every Cluster in the Raven touman. While it may not be the deadliest assault ?Mech
    ever built, Raven pride in their own creation is expected to fast make this design a Raven
    mainstay.

Variants:
    AFFS intelligence has provided evidence of a non-Omni version of the Deimos. This is based
    on the original pre-Omni test bed. It has a load out identical to the Prime model, save for
    using an experimental Laser AMS system and carrying less ammunition. It is equipped with
    only ten double heat sinks and thirteen tons of ferro-fibrous armor, allowing it to mount a
    340-rated extralight engine and increasing the MASC-accelerated top speed to over eighty
    kilometers an hour. It is unknown how many of these exist or if more will be produced.
