Overview:
    The WHD-10CT is the culmination of StarCorps? forays into the use of gladiatorial games as a
    live-fire test range. While many new battlefield technologies have stepped out of the
    gladiatorial arenas, it is the rare BattleMech model that has moved wholly from coliseum to
    battlefield. Even fewer carry the aura, prestige, and instant popularity of this new model
    of the venerable Warhammer design. While some argue that it is not truly a Warhammer, but
    instead an entirely new design, StarCorps has not entered that fray. Instead they?ve just
    sold the new design to nearly all comers. They appear to be content to rely on the design?s
    reputation and so far, judging by sales demands from the factories soon to be producing it,
    the 10CT is in a position to see use for years to come.

Capabilities:
    The WHD-10CT is based on the very successful gladiatorial design piloted by Solaris star,
    Francis Indigo. Indigo?s customized Warhammer, The Lich, was designed and funded by
    StarCorps as part of an increasing move of corporations into the arena markets. These
    industries are testing new technologies and designs before releasing them to the military
    market. After a two-year undefeated run on the Capellan gaming world of Westerhand, Indigo
    and his customized Warhammer moved to the gaming mecca of Solaris VII, where he continued
    his meteoric rise into the top pilots of the unlimited-class arenas.
    
    The Lich is a heavily modified Warhammer chassis with extensive experimental technology.
    While impractical for mainstream production, the basic concepts of a highly durable heavy
    ?Mech platform did give StarCorps the basis for their new Warhammer. The first notable
    changes of the WHD-10CT are visual in nature. It uses a four-jointed leg structure copied
    from the Clan Nova Cat and the large armored arm structures of the Phoenix Marauder series;
    its silhouette is instantly recognizable. The leg structure reportedly provides a twenty
    percent improvement in stability over the older Warhammer structure. The heavy armor of the
    new Marauder arms fitted to The Lich was considered vital to protecting the BattleMech?s
    primary guns. StarCorps has made some concessions to how radically the structural changes
    move it away from the classic ?Hammer layout with the alteration to the variant?s
    designation. The ?D? in WHD refers to its Marauder lineage, with the ?CT? as a nod to the
    Nova Cat?s influences.
    
    Eschewing the edgier technology of The Lich, the 10CT lacks its progenitor?s armored
    internal components, PPC capacitors, Clan weapons, and the still-experimental CASE II. The
    10CT does share The Lich?s durable heavy-duty gyro, endo steel, light fusion engine, and
    twelve and a half tons of light ferro-fibrous armor. Making up in part for its lower
    durability, the 10CT backs up its standard weapons arsenal with a targeting computer. The
    weapons themselves are nearly identical to The Lich, with two snub-nose PPCs and dual
    extended-range lasers in the arms. The torso has medium pulse lasers and a shoulder-mounted
    SRM rack, though this is an Inner Sphere make rather than the Clan model of The Lich.
    
    While it lacks the zombie-like durability of The Lich, the WHD-10CT has high survivability
    for a production design and is expected to fare extremely well in combat.

Deployment:
    Another reason for StarCorps? independent funding of The Lich project became clear when they
    began production of the 10CT. StarCorps has announced they will be producing their new 10CT
    model at their Terra, Menke, St. Ives, Loburg, and Emris IV factories. Inside sources
    indicate they had also intended to produce the design at their Crofton facility in Federated
    Suns space, but for unknown reasons canceled these plans only days before their press
    release to announce the 10CT?s general availability.
    
    While initial production runs have only just rolled out of the Emris IV factory, units are
    expected from the Lyran and Republic plants by 3087. The RAF Quartermaster has authorized
    manufacture of the 10CT on Terra and requested the first four Terran-built 10CTs for
    evaluation.

Variants:
    As a variant of the Warhammer model itself, the WHD-10CT has no further variants.
