================================================================================================
Overview:
    As demanded by the 'Mother Doctrine' since 2380 the Terran Hegemony was able to keep its
    technological edge over the other states of the Inner Sphere throughout most of its
    existence.
    Although fielding a lot of mech-types their neighbors also had in their forces, the Hegemony
    equipped their mechs with high-tech items unobtainable to their rivals.
    
    As soon as the SLDF was built up after the foundation of the Star League the venerable
    Locust, serving the Hegemony's forces since 2499, got a technological upgrade. The first
    mechs reaching their units in 2573.

Capabilities:
    In 2621 the LCT-TH2 model came out of the production lines, dropping the machine guns and
    its ammunition of the TH1 for a pair of the new Blankenburg small pulse lasers negating the
    need of ammo-resupply and making it better suited for deep-penetration reconnaissance.

Deployment:
    The SLDF and the Hegemony's own forces used this Mech as their main recon unit until the
    Mongoose appeared in 2660.

Variants:
    In 2573 the LCT-TH1 model came out of the production lines. See its own file.
