bad news.. My forum scrape from a while back, did not successfuly save the link for the Mimic Drone Carrier. I tried several ways of accessing it.. No dice :/

However I was able to note its post number: 977

So if I ever get a hold of the database for posts, there is still a chance it survived.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==Overview:==

The absorption of the New Earth system into the Star League Terran Security Act in 3077 had a number of consequences, not the least of which was that the New Earth Trading Company was free from Lyran Alliance political and military influences. Both new suppliers and buyers have been found, and the NETC continues to flourish.

While NETC’s products tend to be the Inner Sphere standard (the Myrmidon is widely regarded as the best medium tank in the Inner Sphere), the management of the company have seen a niche market that they are keenly interested to fill, that of a highly mobile drone carrier.

==Capabilities:==

The Hi-Scout Drone Carrier has been the Inner Sphere standard in its class since it was introduced in the year 3000. Since then it had undergone very little customisation, despite numerous complaints and suggestions from numerous vehicle crews. Two of the major complaints have been its slow speed and the enormously complicated sensor systems the vehicle carries. Seeing an opportunity, NETC started collecting data and opinion on the Hi-Scout, and came up with a product to address the issues, naming it the Mimic Drone Carrier.

The one immediately striking feature of the Mimic is the fact that it has no immediately striking features. It is designed to look exactly like a heavy civilian transport vehicle that would not look out of place on a city highway anywhere in the Inner Sphere. This impression in enhanced by the NETC demo model Mimic, which has been painted up with NETC’s paint scheme and company logo and looks like a delivery truck. There are no visible signs that the Mimic is a combat vehicle. Only on very close inspection will cleverly hidden hinged doors become apparent. The side doors hide the launch ramps for the drones themselves, while at the touch of another button the false roofing sections fold away to reveal the turret mounted weapons.

While hiding in plain sight is the Mimic’s number one defence, it also has a respectable array of other defence mechanisms at its disposal. A full ten tonnes of Kallon Light Ferro-Fibrous armour plus the installation of CASE help to protect the vehicle and crew from weapons fire while a Guardian ECM suite interrupts enemy communications and serves to further hide the machine. The respectable top speed of 86.4km/h also allows rapid deployment and retreat if the situation becomes too hot to handle. If, in the extreme situation where avoidance was impossible, the crew can make use of the paired extended range medium lasers to ward off other combat machines, and two Scattergun Light machine guns discourage enemy infantry from getting too curious. Despite its appearance, a cleverly designed suspension and final drive system also allows the Mimic a reasonably good offroad ability, though certainly still more limited than a tracked vehicle of the same size.

The basic electronics systems mounted on the Mimic are far simpler to use and maintain than the Hi-Scout, though as a result they are also less effective. NETC are banking on buyers being more interested in increasing uptime and survivability of the machine than having every bell and whistle possibly available. At fifty tonnes the Mimic also has the advantage of being able to fit in a light vehicle bay for dropship transport.

==Battle History:==
While the Mimic has yet to see active combat, NETC have been trialling it in war games involving Star League Defence Force units and mercenaries that pass through the New Earth system. So far their Modus Operandi of continuously moving the Mimic through populated areas and along busy highways has made it almost impossible to track down. This has also been helped by the availability of nimble sign-writers that can change the appearance of the vehicle in under an hour.


==Deployment==
While NETC are hoping to market the Mimic to anyone wants it, they have contract commitments to both the Free World’s League and, unfortunately, the Lyran Alliance as part of component supply agreements. Future sales of the Mimic to the SLDF and mercenary units has already been approved by the board of directors.

What the hell? Ah, ok. Here you go :)

Part 1: Standard Drones

Type/Model: Mimic Series Drones
Manufacturer: New Earth Trading Company
Location: New Earth

To complement the release of the Mimic Drone Carrier, NETC have also released a new series of drones. Relying mostly on pure speed, the drones cover all practical applications and terrain.

The simplest of the new drones, the NETC Rollercat is a wheeled drone capable of speeds over 300km/hr. It is available with either a standard ICE engine, or an upgraded version with a fusion engine and light armour plating.

For those requiring the ability to cover less trafficable countryside, the NETC Terraincat is a tracked drone with a top speed of approximately 180km/hr. Again, the standard version comes with an ICE engine, or an upgrade is available with a fusion engine and light armour.

Where speed is a priority and the lay of the land is flat, or you are operating across watercourses, then the NETC Hovercat is for you. Available only with a fusion engine, this drone pushes the boundaries of operator control with speed in excess of 500km/hr. Although it lacks any form of armour, the likelihood of enemies being able to target the Hovercat, let alone shoot at it, is very slim.

It doesn’t finish there, however. For the ultimate speed junkies NETC have released the Supercat, a VTOL based drone. Like the Hovercat, the Supercat does not carry any armour, but at over 600km/hr there isn’t much left to worry about!

Finally, the humorously named NETC Drownedcat is a sleek two tonne submersible drone. Although the marine environment is often overlooked in the age of ‘mech and space combat, there may come a time when you need eyes under the surface of that large expanse of water. When you do, NETC have provided just the tool you need to do it – and at a great rate of knots at that! (Pardon the pun).

Part 2: Omni Drone

Type/Model: Mimic Series Drone Werecat
Manufacturer: New Earth Trading Company
Location: New Earth

When NETC released the Mimic and Mimic series drones they were not surprised about the mostly positive reviews the machines received. The Hi-Scout was, after all, well due for an upgrade. What NETC hadn't expected was a persistent question to pop up:

"What happens when they find something?"

The answer to this question is usually along the lines of mark the location and guide in the backup. This wasn't good enough for some buyers who demanded versatility from their equipment, and so NETC have come up with what they consider to be an Inner Sphere first, an omni drone.

The Werecat Omnidrone is a 4t VTOL craft with a base speed of over 290km/h provided by the trusted Omni 25 standard fusion engine. Just over a quarter of a tonne of armour shields the machine from small arms fire, but cannot withstand any attacks from heavy weapons. What stands the Werecat apart from other drones is the 1t omni module capacity.

While a single ton did not give the designers much space to play with, they have used it to the fullest. The Prime variant is an artillery spotter, mounting a TAG unit. The Alpha switched out the TAG for a single extended range medium laser, giving the Werecat a limited combat capability against all foes. The Beta variant is aimed at anti-infantry attacks, with a machine gun and half a ton of ammo (CASE is not installed, given the lack of a pilot to protect). Aimed mainly at the Draconis Combine, but with other users in mind as well, the C variant replaces the weaponry with a C3 Slave, to act as a spotter unit. Finally, the D variant packs two rocket launcher 10's for quick strike and fade opportunities.

As with all the Mimic series drones, the Werecat relies on speed rather than armour to stay alive. This remains true on the ground, as the omni packs can be switched out in a matter of minutes when using the NETC provided module trolleys on flat ground. It can also be done with a standard crane, though this adds another minute or two to the process. Finally, sound dampening design techniques similar to that fitted to the Kestrel VTOL have been fitted to decrease the chance of detection and increase survivability.
