Overview:

       The LCCC has authorized several programs to create League-designed and manufactured OmniMechs. To date, however, only one model-the P1 Perseus-has entered service with the FWLM in any significant numbers.
         The Perseus design is based on the Orion, a 'Mech that is widely used in the FWLM. The new design uses many of the same components as the Orion. This arrangement has facilitated the integration of the OmniMech into units equipped with the older machine. Not surprisingly, the external appearances of the two machines are similar, though the cockpit of the Perseus is more centrally located than that of its progenitor. While the two 'Mechs may look similar, however, the Perseus incorporates some distinctive design features, including a completely redesigned and reinforced endo steel skeleton that can support a diverse range of weapon systems.

Capabilities:

     The Perseus features enough pod space to accommodate almost forty tons of weapons, though the small size of many of the 'Mech's weapon bays limits the types of weapons it can carry. Only the Perseus's arm mounts are large enough to support the FWLM's largest weapons, such as Gauss rifles or Ultra AC/10s, and the hand and lower-arm actuator assemblies must be removed before such weapons can be installed. The small bays also limit the number of modern heat sinks that can be fitted in the 'Mech. Consequently, the Perseus's weapons configurations primarily feature missiles, autocannons and other heat-efficient weapon systems.

Deployment

       The Perseus has quickly become a mainstay of Marik front-line units, helped in part by a massive training program to boost the number of OmniMech-qualified engineering staff. The logistical problems with the supply of pod-configured weapons that dogged the design's early years have likewise been resolved, allowing units equipped with the design to tailor the Perseus's deployment to meet their specific challenges.
