Griffin GRF-1S is a Medium-class 'Mech in Battletech.
Description[edit | edit source]
The 1S variant of the Griffin trades long range for versatility. Dropping the LRM-10 to an LRM-5, the 1S also trades the PPC for a Large Laser and two Medium Lasers, increasing close-in power. Four additional heat sinks help the 1S manage heat.
Loadouts[edit | edit source]
- Optimized Stock Loadout - Relocate LRM ammunition elsewhere.
- Brawler - 2 x SRM6 w/ 2 tons of ammunition, 4 x Medium Laser, 5 x Jump Jets. Remaining tonnage can be spent on armor, additional heatsinks, or support weapons
- Fire Support - 2 x Large Laser or 1 x PPC, and 1 x LRM10 w/ 1 ton of ammunition. Remaining tonnage can be spent on armor, additional heatsinks, or Jump Jets
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Griffin 1Ss mount closer-range weaponry than their 1N cousins, allowing them to jump in for closer attacks and then move away to disengage or flank. They're generally better at dealing with heat buildup, too.
