Overview:
    The Fourth Succession War gave, and the Fourth Succession War took away.  The Federated Suns
    captured the Capellan Wolverine factory on Nanking but lost its own Wolverine factory on
    Marduk to the Draconis Combine.  The larger Kallon Industries assembly line left House
    Davion with a net gain and left House Liao as the only loser.  The WVR-7D model emerging
    from the Nanking facility represents excellent use of recovered technology.
    
    The weight savings of XL engine technology is put to good use upgrading weapons, heat
    sinks, and protection.  A General Motors Nova-5 Autocannon replaces the older Whirlwind
    model, and a Sutel Precision Line Medium Pulse Laser takes the place of the Magna model.
    Designers are adding a heat sink and using Kallon Unity Weave Ferro-Fibrous Armor.  An extra
    half-ton of armor and the use of Ferro-Fibrous material improve protection greatly, mostly
    on the legs and center torso.  Cellular Ammunition Storage Equipment shields the autocannon
    shells and missile reloads, and Myomer Acceleration Signal Circuitry provides emergency
    speed for sticky situations.
    
    At the Norse BattleMech Works on Marduk, the Draconis Combine is producing a very
    different version.  It lacks MASC and CASE but makes use of double heat sinks, eliminating
    concerns about heat buildup.  A Victory Drumbeat Large Pulse Laser replaces the autocannon,
    and a Victory Throb Small Pulse Laser is added.  Also added is a second Telos-6 Short-Range
    Missile Delivery System.  Adding a ton-and-a-half of armor compensates for the lack of
    Ferro-Fibrous material.
    
    The Free Worlds League is also nearing production of its own WVR-7M at Kallon
    Industries on Thermopolis and Free Worlds Defence Industries on Gibson.  This model is much
    closer to the original WVR-6R than it is to either the Davion or Kurita version.  It keeps
    the original armor and lacks CASE.  It also keeps the original twelve heat sinks but uses
    double-strength ones.  The extra-light engine allows use of MASC and a new weapons
    configuration.  Two Diverse Optics Sunbeam Extended-Range Large Lasers replace the
    autocannon, and two Magna 400P Medium Pulse Lasers replace the single older model.
