    The last watch possess two identical trebuchets, in a configuration they dubbed the TBT-5LW,
    LW standing for Last Watch. Based on the chassis of the Trebuchet 5J this small refit
    removes three heat sinks, using the space freed to mount two extra tons of ammo protected in
    a case bay, as well as one and a half tons more of standard armor.

    The trebuchet 5LW performs an almost identical role to that of the 5J, but with extra
    staying power. Using its jump jets to gain advantage and the perfect angle the 5LW is able
    to perform as a effective skirmisher, using its lrms until an opportunity arises to close
    and let lose its barrage of three medium lasers before falling back to fire its lrm again.

    The Trebuchet 5LW is usually deployed in the Last Watchs skirmishing lance, alongside the
    other 5LW, the Kintaro 10J (Doubleshot) and the Dervish (Heathen) while the heathen and
    doubleshot have sone lrms to add to that of the dual 5LWs their main focus is getting closer
    and flanking to better allow the 5LWs to perform adequately. However there are also reports
    of the 5LWs being deployed to provide fire support alongside the Grand Dragon DRG-1G (Honzo)
    and the Shadow Hawk SHD-2H (Mossy) in an Ad Hoc formation.

    The 5LW2 drops the CASE protection system in favor of a small laser.

Notable MechWarriors:
    Little is known about the pilots of the two 5LWs in the Last watch. What is known is the two
    are related, most likely a brother and sister and that they go by the aliases of Bonnie and
    Clyde. The two were proficient MechWarriors and performed well when the skirmish lance is
