Overview:

       During production of the Hammer, an engineer noticed that the new 'Mech would be suitably matched with another design under production, the Stingray. After reviewing the engineer's analysis, the Free Worlds League renamed the Stingray the Anvil.
       When the Anvil is coupled with the Hammer, it produces an effective fighting duo that displays a broad weapons range and is mobile enough to cover terrain very quickly. First, the Hammer's long-range firepower "softens up" enemy 'Mechs, which then must face the wrath of the Anvil's deadly accurate large pulse lasers in close combat.
       Many military planners in the Free Worlds League hope that enemy MechWarriors will come to fear the Hammer and Anvil combination in years to com.

Capabilities:

       The Anvil utilizes some of the new technologies that have become available over the last few years, including endo steel internal structure, double heat sinks, and the Guardian electronic countermeasures package. The Anvil's main weaponry is a pair of large pulse lasers mounted on either side of the torso. Two Martell medium lasers supplement the main guns. The 'Mech has limited jump capability to give it more maneuverability in its close-combat role.

Variants:

       The known suggestions concerning variants for the new Anvil are few. One idea is the elimination of the three jump jets for additional armor. Another is the downgrading of the large pulse lasers to standard pulse lasers, saving tonnage for the addition of more weapons or jump jets. Removal of the Guardian ECM suite has also been suggested, but that modification would drastically reduce the 'Mech's value.

Deployment

       The Anvil and the Hammer have been inextricably intertwined ever since pilots discovered their compatibility as a team. Like the Hammer, the Anvil has been spotted in several companies throughout the Free Worlds League, especially in the Duchy of Andurien.
