I went through my TROs quickly, and didn't find anything. I am going to go back up and look more in a little bit.

Couldn't find anything in my TRO's, but, in my most recent campaign, on Cavanaugh II, My Joint Contract commander, LtCol. Whitley had one. Here is the description she included in her post:
"Unlike many other Battle 'Mechs, the Trebuchet IIC was designed from the beginning to work as part of a lance instead of functioning as a standalone model. The TBT-IIC features respectable firepower, twelve double strength heat sinks, ten and one half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor and a top speed of 120 kph for good mobility. The main drawback of the design is its endurance: since it was never meant to operate far from supply lines the Trebuchet has a limited amount of munitions for its missile launchers and once these ammunition bins have run dry the 'Mech must defend itself with only its laser weapons. As well the Trebuchet is outgunned compared to other 'Mechs when fighting independently at close range. With its urban camouflage paint scheme and the cockpit siting directly on top of the Trebuchet's center torso, the 'Mech had no neck at all, it resemble a heavy weight prize fighter. Most of the 'Mech's Right Torso was consumed by it's massive 20 pack Long Range Missile Rack. It's left arm ended in three 7cm BrightBloom medium laser ports, but its right arm had a fully articulate hand that could be used as a battle fist, in hand to hand combat and mounted a devastating streak short ranged missile launcher. The Trebuchet's legs were heavily armored providing it with the ability to stomp enemy tanks or even to kick lighter Battle 'Mechs."

I agree. I am not a big fan of the Clan 2nd line mechs. Griffin IIC, for example, is very squishy. Of course, on the other hand, I do own a CRAB IIC, and it is one of my top performers.

Several good Clan medium builds out there that can perform with that loadout. Without really looking for them, the Hellhound(Conjurer) comes to mind. It has jump jets, 50 tons, good armor and speed, ER Mediums and STREAK SRMs. There are several variants, and several are in the same price range of the Trebuchet IIC. If you would like, I can look and make other recommendations.
