LMTT New Variants!

Postby Mariahsyn » Tue May 22, 2018 3:04 am

The Light Military Tactical Trailer. (LMTT) [New Variants]

Mass: 5 tons
Chassis: Blackwell Trailer Standard
Armor: Protec 6 Standard
Armament:
Varies.
Manufacturer: Blackwell Industries
Primary Factory: Outreach
Communications System: Dalban Starlink Classic. (Standard on all trailers)
Targeting & Tracking System: Garret Fib. (Weapon Equipped Trailers only)


Overview:
Due to the immense popularity of the M3077 series of light wheeled vehicles, Blackwell Industries of Outreach decided to look for a way to expand the range of capabilities of the basic design variants. Initially, they pursued a program of attempting to increase the size yet the prototypes ended up being double the weight for little increase in overall capability over the original five ton design. A second path pursued the thought of trailers which could be towed behind the main vehicles, and so the LMTT-series of support trailers were born. With the dawn of the 32nd century rapidly approaching, an expanded offering has been developed.

Capabilities:
Weighing in at five tons, the basic chassis of the Light Military Tactical Trailer system utilizes many of the same well tested materials and construction techniques which have made the M3077 a winner around the Inner Sphere. Each trailer is armored with Protec 6 standard armor and can withstand much of the same level of punishment as the vehicles themselves. Additionally, in keeping with the use of off the shelf components, the venerable Dalban Starlink Classic communications system as well as the Garret Fib targeting and tracking system are used by the majority of the trailers allowing them to seamlessly integrate into a force which uses the M3077 as spare parts are never a problem. The use of a trailer coupled to a M3077 reduces the speed of the main vehicle only marginally and it is surmised that battlefield commanders will appreciate the increased utility of the design when a trailer is incorporated.

Deployment:
The Light Military Tactical Trailer system’s success during the 5th Succession War and beyond has seen the design proliferate across the Inner Sphere. Blackwell Industries saw the need for a second run of trailer variants and so expanding the capabilities of the family of trailers.

Variants:
MG Trailer - Designed to provide extra firepower to the M3077, the Machinegun trailer mounts four machineguns in an enclosed turret making survival for hostile infantry and light vehicles unlikely should they run afoul of it.

Medium Bridgelayer Trailer – The original bridge-layer trailer was equipped to handle vehicles up to 14 tons moving across up to 90 meters. The medium bridge-layer was designed to handle vehicles up to 40 tons and spanning up to 60 meters so as to be of utility for heavier vehicles.

Drone Control Trailer - Designed to control up to three drones, the LMTT Drone Controller is a cheap and mobile alternative to heavier drone control vehicles.

Field Kitchen Trailer - Inspired by a field modification of the utility variant trailer, a dedicated field kitchen serving up to 150 troopers and also incorporating one ton of storage for foodstuffs. If pulled by a M3077 utility variant the cargo carrying capacity is increased by an additional two and a half tons.

Mine Dispenser Trailer - Created with an eye at the rapid deployment of minefields, this trailer is equipped with four mine dispensers in the rear of the vehicle and one and a half tons of storage space in the body of the trailer itself. It is capable of deploying a 240-meter long minefield that is 30-meters wide in a very short period before needing to be reloaded.

Remote Sensor Trailer - Nearly identical to the Mine Dispenser except that each of the four Remote Sensor Dispensers carries 30 sensor units for a total of one hundred and twenty before reloading is required. This design allows for a wide area to be seeded with sensors in a short period of time.
