Overview:

         In the late 3040s, Corean Enterprises MacAdams-Suharno of the Free Worlds League decided to take another look at the four-legged 'Mech Chassis. They upgraded their aging Goliath design, and in the early 3050s the company introduced the Tarantula, a four-legged light scout 'Mech. To overcome the prevailing negative stereotype of quad 'Mechs, Corean launched an ambitious ad campaign using actual battle footage and MechWarrior testimonials. The company also took the unprecedented step of giving a number of Tarantulas to several premier units around the Inner Sphere. By 3057, this impressive effort paid off, and sales of the Tarantula skyrocketed. This response persuaded Corean that a new quad assault 'Mech should replace the aging Goliath. By early 3059, the Sirocco was undergoing field testing.

Capabilities:

         The Sirocco's main firepower centers around twin Ultra-10 autocannon produced by Imperator Weaponries. Large ammo bins mounted in each of the 'Mech's rear legs feed the autocannon. To provide additional firepower at close range, the Sirocco adds six extended-range medium lasers. Because four-legged 'Mech designs do not have arm-mounted weapons, the design also incorporates two rear-facing lasers.
         For defensive purposes, an electronic countermeasures suite reduces the effectiveness of enemy long-range scanning and surveillance equipment. Additionally, because of the unique nature of four-legged designs, Corean Enterprises was able to mount more armor protection than ever previously incorporated into any 'Mech design.
         Finally, the Sirocco incorporates Capellan-produced anti-personnel pods that mimic their Clan counterparts. Captain-General Thomas Marik agreed to purchase the anti-infantry weapons in an effort to appease Capellan Chancellor Sun-Tzu Liao, who is becoming increasingly irate over Marik's refusal to set a wedding date between Sun-Tzu and Marik's daughter Isis.

Deployment

         Executives at Corean Enterprises realized early on that the survival of the company's new design depended on making sure it reached the right MechWarriors as quickly as possible. They therefore devised a contract that allowed the Free Worlds League Military to buy the first production run at a much-reduced cost, provided that these first Siroccos were assigned to a premier unit. The first Siroccos off the production line have been shipped to the Second Knights of the Inner Sphere.
