================================================================================================
Overview:
    A clantech refit of the Royal Black Knight, the BL-6b-KNT (C) is a moderately improved
    version of the original model, a testament to the original and hardy design of the Black
    Knight.

Capabilities:
    The Inner Sphere Large Pulse Lasers and ER PPC are replaced with clan equivalents, and the
    small laser in the head is replaced with a clan ER small laser. To keep the mech at least
    somewhat cool, the medium lasers are replaced with a trio of clanner Medium Pulse lasers,
    offering more damage for the same amount of heat, if for a higher tonnage limit. Another IS
    Double Heatsink is added to the machine to better handle the impressive amount of heat the
    Black Knight can generate.

Deployment:
    Given to more elite units in second line clanner forces during Operation REVIVAL, the
    BL-6b-KNT (C) earned a reputation as a dangerous and lethal machine that lived up to the
    legacy of the Black Knight. Clan Diamond Shark was among the most common users of this
    variant, and most of these refits were lost in the Battle of Tukkayid. After the battle a
    few were restored by ComStar, but most pilots among the ComGuards preferred the 'Clanbuster'
    BL-9-KNT. Despite being shorter ranged, the Clanbuster variant was far more comfortable to
    pilot, and easier to maintain. As such, the retrofit became a footnote occasionally dragged
    out by mercenary units. The last known BL-6b-KNT (C) was destroyed in 3121.
