================================================================================================
Overview:
    Both the Kell Hounds and Wolf's Dragoons have had great success with the Wolfhound.  Though
    produced by one of the most respected BattleMech factories in Steiner space, this design was
    not approved for use by Lyran or Davion units until after the Fourth Succession War.  It was
    almost as if the two mercenary units were doing field tests for Katrina Steiner.  If the
    Fourth Succession War was a test for the 'Mech, the Wolfhound passed with flying colors,
    defeating Kurita Panthers on numerous occasions.
    
    The Federated Commonwealth has since reacted with enthusiasm, ordering major increases
    in production.  The Tharkad factory has, however, slowed in the last six months to allow
    retooling to fit the Wolfhound with recovered technology.  Though it retains the Defiance
    B3M Medium Lasers, a Cyclops XII Extended-Range Large Laser replaces the Setanta Heavy
    Laser.
    
    Perhaps the most significant change in the new WLF-2 model is the use of double heat
    sinks.  Though most light 'Mechs have little problem with heat, the Wolfhound's reliance on
    laser weapons made it more vulnerable than most.  Star League technology provided the answer
    in double heat sinks, which the Wolfhound is the lightest 'Mech to employ.
