Overview:

       The Devastator was built from a Star League-era design, discovered in 3023 by Davion troops in the remains of a Star League base on the planet Hoff. Inner Sphere scientists and BattleMech manufacturers, however, lacked the technology to build the Gauss rifles, extra-light engines, and double heat sinks the design required. The blueprints for the Devastator languished in the files of the New Avalon Institute of Science for ten years, until advanced technological information uncovered in the Gray Death memory core enabled House Davion to construct a prototype of the BattleMech.
       Originally designed by General Kerensky to correct the flaws in the prototype Titan BattleMech, the Devastator can deliver tremendous firepower at long range. The chaos of the Amaris Civil War disrupted the development of the original Devastator, though several prototypes reached General Kerensky's forces in time for the final assault on Terra. No record of the 'Mech's deployment during the Succession Wars exists; experts assume that all the prototypes accompanied General Kerensky in the Exodus.

Capabilities:

       The relative lightness of the Devastator's 300 XL engine enables the 'Mech to carry several heavy weapons and extra double heat sinks. A total of fourteen double heat sinks keep the Devastator cool even at the height of battle, and eighteen and a half tons of armor give the Devastator excellent protection.
       The Devastators weapons are impressive and deadly. Two Gauss rifles and two PPCs make up the major portion of the 'Mech's arsenal, allowing the Devastator to inflict immense damage at long range. The 'Mech's four tons of Gauss ammunition are stored in four separate bins, eliminating the possibility of putting the Gauss rifles out of action with a single lucky hit. For short range combat, the Devastator is equipped with four medium lasers, including one rear mounted laser.

Variants:

       The only known variant of the Devastator is the DVS-3, which remains under development at this time.   The DVS-3 drops three of the original design's medium lasers in favor of an additional half ton of armor and two more tons of Gauss ammunition. In addition, a rear firing small laser is mounted in the center torso. This model has not yet seen combat.

Deployment

       Norse-Storm has been producing a moderate number of Devastators at their Loxley facility for the past ten years. All of these units have been sold to the Federated Commonwealth. It is unknown how many Devastators were deployed with Lyran units when the Lyran Alliance declared its independence from the Commonwealth. Experts estimate that as many as 100 Devastators may be stationed along the borders of the Clan occupation zones.
