    As new technologies spread over the inner sphere following the discovery of the Gray Death
    Memory Core Irian BattleMechs soon dicided not only to upgrade older models but to construct
    a new one.
    The task was given to C. Hrovat, a new but promising mech-designer.
    He was enthusiastic about the idea to construct a light mech with the newly available Hermes
    300 XL fusion engine to give it incredible speed:
    The FE-1MM Ferret was born.

    The Ferret was based on a standard-version of the HER-1 30t chassis (EndoSteel chassis were
    in short supply these days). The Hermes 300 XL also produced for the OTL-5M Ostsol gave it a
    speed of above 160 kph and the ability to outrun every other design of its time and even
    most hovers and some VTOLs!
    To protect this speed-demon the designers decided to put 5,5 tons of the new ferro-fibrous
    armor on the frame. Because the fusion reactor came (as standard) with 10 integral double
    heat sinks and Irian wanted a deep-penetration ability only energy-weapons were intended.
    First plans called for 3 medium pulse lasers but Hrovat didnīt like the short range and
    heavy tonnage of them. He decided to mount 6 standard medium lasers instead that gave the
    Ferret very heavy firepower with a standard range and no heat problems.
    The mech was sold as a deep penetration striker and light mech hunter.

    The design was spread throughout Marik-space but selling-numbers soon stay behind
    expectations. Most buyers refused to spend almost 5,5 mio C-bills for "only a light mech".

    As soon as new ER-technology was available the Ferret was equipped with ER medium lasers.
    But the FE-1ER had serious problems with overheating because the pilots tried to
    alpha-strike two or three times like they were able to in the original FE-1MM. So only a few
    field upgrade kits were produced.
    A later series was equipped with endo-steel structure. The saved weight was used to mount a
    Beagle Active Probe (FE-2R) or 5 ER medium laser instead of the standards plus 2 double heat
    sinks and 0,5 tons of armor (FE-2ER) or 4 ER medium laser instead of the standards plus a
    double heat sink, a Beagle Active Probe and a targeting computer purchased on the black
    This FE-2T Prototyp has been proven very effectiv but production will be deleted until House
    Davion is willing to sell their TCs or House Marik gets a reengineering done.
