Overview:

       Following Clan Nova Cat's defeat at Tukayyid, that Clan began talks with the Draconis Combine. Kahn Severen Leroux at the same time ordered the construction of a new heavy OmniMech. Built to protect the Clan both militarily and spiritually, the design was christened Nova Cat, imbuing it with the spirit of the Clan.
       In 3059, when the Inner Sphere launched its counterattack on the Smoke Jaguar Occupation Zone, Clan Nova Cat's decision was at hand. The Smoke Jaguars suddenly found themselves facing Clan Nova Cat forces as part of the new Star League Army. At the forefront of the Nova Cat units was their new Nova Cat 'Mech.

Capabilities:

       Impressed by Clan Jade Falcon's Night Gyr, Nova Cat scientists reduced the speed of the Nova Cat to free a massive amount of pod space for weapons allocation, giving the Nova Cat its unique look. The standard configuration has awesome long-range firepower. However, to help control heat, the pilot must alternate his weapons fire. Relying on beam weapons allows this configuration to operate away from support for extended periods.
       The A configuration is similar to the Summoner D, while configuration B is a missile platform similar to the Night Gyr D.
       The C configuration is meant for urban combat, not extended campaigns. Configuration D mounts the new heavy lasers invented by Clan Star Adder, combined with an LB-X/10 autocannon. This configuration has incredible short-ranged firepower, but at the cost of excessive overheating problems.

Deployment

       The Nova Cat was first produced on the Nova Cat capital of Barcella, in Clan space. In early 3059, production began in the new Irece Alpha plant in the Inner Sphere.
       First seeing service with Clan Nova Cat during Operation Bulldog, several Nova Cats were seized by the Smoke Jaguars when they captured a malfunctioning Nova Cat DropShip. Sources in the Periphery persistently report an odd-looking 'Mech resembling the Nova Cat. It is possible that one or more of these machines may have become part of the arsenals of other Clans that accepted Smoke Jaguar refugees.
