Overview:
    Two decades ago, the Raven was House Liao's experimental attempt to produce a 'Mech that
    could provide a battalion or regiment with sophisticated electronic-warfare capabilities.
    The equipment was not a complete success, being too heavy and insufficiently sophisticated
    to turn the tide of battle. Recovered Star League technology, however, has made the Raven a
    viable BattleMech. Produced exclusively by Hellespont Industries on Sian, the RVN-3L Raven
    is striding off the assembly line bristling with the most advanced electronics ever seen in
    the Inner Sphere.
    
    The key to the 'Mech's success are the lighter materials and equipment now available.
    The Hermes 210 XL engine saved enough mass to equip the Raven with even more electronic gear
    than its original designers planned in 3025. The Guardian ECM suite helps shield the Raven
    and the rest of its accompanying unit from enemy sensors. The Beagle probe, which meshes
    especially well with the Apple Churchill 2000 targeting system, locates even hidden enemy
    units. Once it locates the enemy, the Raven can bombard him to rubble. The
    target-acquisition gear, hooked directly to the Beagle probe, spots the enemy accurately for
    friendly fire from the Arrow IV artillery system. The Churchill Narc Beacon also provides a
    magnet for direct-fire missiles from the Raven and the rest of the 'Mechs in its unit.
    
    The economy of weight allows Hellespont Industries to give the Raven better armor
    protection as well. An additional half-ton of armor protects the front torso and arms, and
    Cellular Ammunition Storage Equipment shields the missile reloads against an internal
    explosion.
