================================================================================================
Overview:
    

The Iron Dogs Mercenary Group was interested in an inexpensive "work dog" that could go deep inside enemy lines, out survive its competition, and not need re-supplies. They could not find what they were looking for, and after the War of 3039, the Iron Dogs were fortunate to quietly steal away with many disgruntled employees of Odin Manufacturing from the Orestes System. The mercenaries protected and enriched those engineers as well as their families in a quieter corner of the Inner Sphere. Together, they built the Pit Bull.

Capabilities:

The Pit Bull was designed to fire all its weapons and jump 120 meters without suffering the negative effects of heat. It has both long and short range capabilities without needing resupplies on longer missions. As a mercenary group, money was always an issue. They engineered the Pit Bull around cheaper and more available technology for easier repair and faster builds. It is one of the least expensive 'Mechs of its class, but it still packs a pit bull attitude. The mercenary group also prefers the standard fusion engine over the more fragile XL fusion engine so the 'Mech can stay in the fight longer. Each of the Pit Bull's left and right sides have balanced weapons, a left-arm that can flip to attack behind the 'Mech, and a hand for grabbing and holding. The unit created approximately a dozen of the 'Mechs.

Deployment:

The Iron Dogs Mercenary Group is a private corporation who practices discretion and maintains its secrets. There are no known advertised deployments, though the Iron Dogs have known great success.

Variants:

The Pit Bull in its simplest form is the ID-PB-1 model. However, the 'Mech can easily swap older technology for the newer extended-range weapons if the mission and pilot could afford the heat sacrifices. Many Pit Bulls have been known to carry ER PPCs and ER medium lasers on special missions.

Notable MechWarriors:

The Captain of the Iron Dogs, James "Big Dog" Eisen-Hund piloted the Pit Bull in the Solaris Games to earn money and show off his investment.
