    Greetings MechWarriors,
    This post contains information for all variants of the Archer, releasing for eligible pilots with the March 15th patch.
    Archer

    Pictured variant: ARC-5S with standard Loadout and a customized House Davion Pattern
    Release date for MC: June 7th 2016
    Release date for C-Bills: July 5th 2016
    First produced in 2474, the Archer was designed as a long-range fire-support BattleMech that would harass an enemy at range while also causing significant damage in the process. It brought a successful mix of paired Doombud LRM 20s with a bevy of Diverse Optics medium lasers as backup weaponry for close-in work. The Archer was not only a mainstay of the Star League Defense Force, but most of the Successor States produced a variety of variants, building on the impressive original platform.
