         The Gallowglas is a BattleMech design built by Blackwell Heavy Industries. A successful marriage of proven technologies and modern innovation, even the lesser versions that it marketed to the Successor States proved their worth. It became so popular against the Clans that Blackwell fell almost a year behind on delivering orders by 3055. They continued to build the export versions until the Jihad, when its chaos shattered the delicate strands of interstellar trade. Blackwell never stopped building the Clan-tech version for the Wolf's Dragoons though and the Gallowglas soon proved its merit against the Word and their allies.


         The Gallowglas is built on a chassis incorporating endo steel structural members armored with a multilayered defense of StarSlab 600 ferro fibrous armor. Faster than most BattleMechs in its weight class, its Geotec 300 jump jets allow it even more mobility, making it a favorite of MechWarriors that prefer to keep on the move.
         The Gallowglas's array of energy weaponry makes it a formidable foe at long range, and its effectiveness only increases at shorter ranges, a vital necessity on the modern battlefield.
         The primary armament is a a Black Widow extended range PPC, backed up by an impressive array of Yellow Bird and Swift Lightning laser cannons.
         Comparison of electronic emission records and external features such as antennae arrays indicate that Blackwell has made good use of local production for the electronics as well. A Pauley-Bronson Z communications system keeps them in contact with friends and foes alike while a Winston Sidewinder licensed from Glengarry keeps the weapons on target.


         At first only the Dragoons used the Clan-tech Gallowglas, but the formation of the Allied Mercenary Command against the Word threat changed matters. They soon opened up sales of the design to other members of the AMC. Tragically, some of the mercenaries turned on the AMC, and so for a time it became common to see a Gallowglas fighting another Gallowglas. Those times are over, and now only the AMC uses them. Lacking any need for ammunition and having a roomy cockpit, MechWarriors love piloting them, quartermasters love ordering for them, and techs love working on them.
