    In 3020 Kuritan agent acquired plans for some FC mechs. Among the plans was copy of FLF-3S
    Flail, Stainer medium line mech. Luthien Armor Works lacked the blueprints to build the
    mech, but the designers saw some potential and immediately started rework. Works proceeded
    well, because techs had already few captured 3S mechs at their disposal. Flail was built
    from widely available parts, so typical problems with refitting whole chassis with different
    structural parts didn't occur here.

    Whirlwind autocannon was replaced with Lords Light PPC. This proved to be limiting factor
    for building 3K Flails, because most PPCs were already used for Panthers, but Limited
    numbers of 3K still leave the manufactures on Luthien. Other weapons were replaced with
    their local counterparts, namely Victory 23R medium lasers and Telos SRMs. With so many
    shared components with Panther, FLF-3K Flail is welcome sight in any unit containing them.
    Designers wisely added distinctive fin on mechs back, resembling banners carried by samurai
    of old.

    Most 3K Flails were sent to reinforce Arkab legions. This move widely perceived as very wise
    from, because it helped Coordinator to ensure gratitude and loyalty of these units to the
