In the hands of a trained professional, the Commando is a dangerous weapon. Tipping the scales at only 25 tons, the COM-2D has enough firepower to strip off a ton-and-a-half of armor with each salvo, and can keep pace with most other light mechs. At only 541 BV, the COM-2D Commando is a budget brawler that can serve as the bully in a light lance or a dedicated quick-strike element in heavier units.
Dating back to the origins of BattleTech, the Locust is an iconic 20 ton recon mech in its purest form. There are several Locust variants, but the most universal is the 1E variant clocking in at a mere 553 BV. The Locust LCT-1E packs an array of energy weapons and a blistering top speed making it hard to ignore and even harder to hit.
