The Cerberus series acts as the ‘primary’ model of the three variants. That is to say, of the three models, the Cerberus has the lowest average production and maintenance costs, resulting in a higher fielding ratio of it as opposed to the other models. The Cerberus makes up a majority portion of the fielded Lohengrin models as used by the Expeditionary Forces, thanks to its medium armored chassis, increased compliment of weapons, versatility, and relatively easy to restock weapon stores.
The Cerberus is armed with a 90mm Gauss Rifle that allows it to deal with most combat situations fairly easily, while the optional Chemical Laser Rifle gives it a significantly more powerful attack power at the cost of effective weapons range. Because of this lack of extra range from the secondary rifle, the Cerberus also supports a hip mounted Titanium Axe, though these two weapons are not standard equipment. The Cerberus can also be specially equipped with a Stormbolt Artillery Cannon. However it is generally reserved for special operations purposes, as it greatly increases the mecha's profile, leaving it an open target in most combat situations.

Weapon Systems

Black Sphere Drive (Type Alpha)
Location: Mounted into mecha frame

While not a weapon system, the Black Sphere Drive is a vital piece of equipment that was developed for use in the second and third generation Lohengrin Mecha. While the main purpose of the Black Sphere Drive was to provide thrust for larger air born craft, the smaller Alpha Type Drive module was adapted to allow small vehicles and mecha an energy efficient flight system.
The Black Sphere Drive is made up of two vitally important components – a central core, and an outer shell like layer. The central core is externally controlled to make subtle and minute movements that are then channeled through the outer core – these movements are converted to kinetic energy, which is then magnified several thousand times and causes the outer shell to move. Any craft (mecha suit, vehicle or battle ship) which uses a Black Sphere Drive has its frame lined with the same material as the Drive’s outer shell, and then directly connected to the Drive system itself – thus the kinetic energy that channels through the outer shell transfers into the frame of the craft itself. When applied as a means of flight, the Black Sphere Drive generates enough kinetic force that it is able to counter-act the forces of Earth’s gravity, generating lift.

90mm Gauss Rifle

Location: Hand Carried, Magnetic Coils powered by power coupling in mecha's hand
Rate of Fire: 3 Round Burst Fire or 1 Round Fire Setting
Ammunition: 200 Rounds fed to weapon by hip mounted ammunition canister
The 90mm Gauss Rifle fires 90mm Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail Armor Piercing rounds made from a copper coat and tungsten carbide core. The rifle uses a magnetic coil system to fire the 90mm rounds at extremely high velocities, increasing the maximum distance of the rifle as well as increasing its armor piercing capacity. The 90mm gauss rifle can fire in a standard three round burst, or in single round setting – making an excellent sniper rifle.

Chemical Laser Rifle

Location: Hand Carried
Output: 2.5 MW
Ammunition: 10 Shots per Cartridge, Extra cartridges stored on back hip mount
The Chemical laser rifle uses a deuterium-fluoride reaction in which fluorine atoms are accelerated through supersonic nozzles into a laser cavity where it is mixed with Deuterium in a low-temperature low-pressure environment, forming an excited Deuterium-fluoride molecule. The stimulated photons as a result from this reaction are then used to create a laser beam which is capable of generating approximate 2.5 MW of energy in output power. When applied as a weapon, the Chemical Laser is able to do a devastating amount of damage to most objects.

Titanium Axe

Location: Hand Carried
The Titanium axe is a hand held weapon measuring in at a length of 2.5 meters. Its handle grip and blade are made from different types of Titanium Composite allows in order to allow the maximum cutting potential, while at the same time providing an optimum weapon strength. The blade itself is made from an alloy composite to give maximum strength and durability, while the edges have been heat treated and hardened to give a stronger cutting edge. The handle is made from a slightly softer composite, allowing the force and shock from impact to transfer through the blade to the handle, distributing impact along the full length of the weapon to minimize breaking potential.

Stormbolt Artillery Cannon

Location: Hand Carried
Rate of Fire: 5 rounds a minute
Ammunition: 50 rounds fed to weapon by hip mounted ammunition canister
A very large and very powerful artillery cannon, the Stormbolt Artillery Cannon fires 155mm explosive howitzer rounds. Howitzer rounds generally have a higher-than average splinter effect than most artillery rounds, making them a superior long-range artillery ammunition.

i really like how you do the feet. im not ver ygood at mecha feet, but i like to use the same sort of style as the mechs in Heavy Gear that have an SMS system where their feet, which have bases made of wheels, become like heavy duty roller blades.

Been looking at all the mecha designs you've done. very awesome. i'd pilot one of these. (I always say that when i find an awesome mech i like! it's supposed to be a big compliment!)
neji0601 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2007
It's good, the right arm cannon is definetly remniscent of Phantom Crash though. Might just be a coincidence though.
CyrenMortalis Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2007
Beautiful, it's not often I see a good, -pencil-drawn- mecha. I like the colouring on it, it feels really lively.

Good work, definate fav. :damphyr:

very cool, but the head looks like it doesn't quite fit the design of the rest of the body. perhaps a monical would be better. like a zaku.
more good work though.

Aerythes Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2004
Mechwarrior (battletech) takes its earlier designs from Robotech/Macross, and much of the later designs are also derived from there. So you can say that they are inspired by japanese mecha designs too.

M-22 Cerberus is a lightmech, a Lohengrin mecha engineering invention. It is not mass produced, it is only in service for the expeditionary elite force.
Also a unique feature of the Cerberus/Lohengrin mecha is that it has Black sphere drive system, notice a "ball-like" stuff in the chest area, there are three of them, two located at the chest area and one at the back.
It functions that there is a central core that as long it moves within a sphere (in respect to a direction) the sphere moves also. The two sphere in the chest provides vertical thrust, the one at the back provide horizontal thrust (floating).

I'll be posting two more Lohengrin mechs as soon as i finish them, also including the Command APC.

Very very very very cool design! I like the legs and the gun. He reminds me of a cross between battletech and Armored Core mechs. :D NIce work! :)
MobileSuitGio Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yup! i was inspired by the designs from armored core! a cross between anime and battlemech designs!
