    The War Dog class BattleMech has been almost 300 years in the making. Originally designed
    for use by the SLDF, the plans and prototype chassis were removed from Terra shortly before
    the fall of the Star League. Only scant references to the design remained until 3052, when
    Snord's Irregulars, the Federated Commonwealth mercenary unit, captured a long-lost SLDF
    base in the Dark Nebula.
    The base, known as Camelot Command, has been undergoing refurbishing and refitting,
    serving as a FedCom raiding base despite several attacks by Clan Jade Falcon. During the
    refit, Snord's Irregulars recovered several chassis for the War Dog, as well as a complete
    set of blueprints. These were smuggled back to the Federated Commonwealth during a resupply
    run, resulting in an almost immediate start on production.
    The Irregular's commanding officer Rhonda Snord had the designs delivered to the
    Blackwell Corporation, the Wolf's Dragoon-sponsored firm on Outreach. The engineers at
    Blackwell realized the value of the design and began work on an extended production run of
    the War Dog.

    The key to the success of this heavy 'Mech is its heavy armor protection. With more than
    twelve tons of ferro-fibrous armor, the War Dog can weather the heavy fire-power typical of
    an encounter with Clan forces. Added to this is the anti-missile system mounted on the
    forward right torso.
    The firepower of the 'Mech is based on the Grizzard Gauss rifle, and supplemented by a
    Blankenburg large pulse laser. The War Dog also carries two medium pulse lasers for
    close-fire support. A small pulse laser is rear mounted on the head of this 'Mech for
    anti-Elemental support, the only modification to the original Star League design
    specifications. The War Dog carries a last-ditch weapons system in the two SRM Streak
    one-shot missile packs mounted on the upper legs of the 'Mech.
    One of the most distinctive features of this 'Mech is that its right arm has more armor
    protection than its left. This imbalance requires that a 'Mech pilot practice some
    gyro-balancing, but it also offers exceptional protection to the War Dog's Gauss rifle, the
    most powerful weapon it mounts. Though the weapon arm is more heavily shielded, it appears
    roughly the same size and shape as its weaker companion.

    Several War Dogs, menacing and easily recognizable, have already found their way to Solaris
    VII, where the 'Mech has become almost a household name among game fans.
    The Blackwell Corporation has filled orders for War Dogs with every major Great House of
    the Inner Sphere and for a number of mercenary units. The Federated Commonwealth currently
    fields the largest number of War Dogs, with most assigned to the Federated Commonwealth/Clan
    Occupation Zone border
    The Word of Blake has placed an order for two lances of War Dogs. It is believed that
    these will serve as replacements in their massive reconstruction and rearming effort.
