The Camelot line was designed to serve as a C3 Lance 
Leader BattleMech. It features a number of special 
features including a "jump seat" allowing a second 
person to ride in the cockpit, advanced communications 
gear that can track eight different frequencies at a time, 
satallite uplink gear, and a modular system for it's 
weapons and extra electronics gear that allow changes 
to be made in a matter of a day or two rather than weeks.

Ten were made in the initial run with half being used by 
Solaris warriors and the rest going to Major (later Lt. 
Colonel) John Linna of the Suomi Warders. The A1 
version is the model he used in his campaign against the 
Yu-Shan pirates. Equipped with ECM, triple strength 
myomer, and a  special C3 master that linking into a 
Command Combat Information and Control vehicle 
(dubbed 'Bifrost') Lt. Col Linna's Camelot was cutting 
edge technology for it's time and served him well in those 
battles. (His original version mounted standard rather than 
IR medium lasers). Sperry Uhtiva ran a successful run on 
the Tier 2 title with a Camelot mounting a hatchet, the 3x 
myomer, and a varying array of energy weapons that 
same year.

Following the Word of Blake expansion into FWL space, 
the Suomi Warders and D.E.W. became somehow 
involved with WoB technological research and in later 
years Linna's unit employed the Advanced C3i gear that 
ComStar initially developed. While it is known that Lt. Col 
Linna downgraded to an ER Large Laser from the ER 
PPC what he did with the weight savings is unknown 
outside the Warders.

Limited runs of Camelots are produced about every three 
years. Few are ordered as C3 masters but a number have 
been built with an active probe and either additional jump 
jets or an extra ER medium laser and heatsinks. Another 
version had a C3 slave and dropped two ER medium for 
an ER Large laser. The ones used for arena combat 
have wielded a bewildering array of weaponry. Warder 
ones are believed to use the C3i and extra laser 
weaponry / heatsinks based on the pilot's preference.
