The Gorgon proved to be another step forward in ProtoMech design that in many ways was as impressive as the design of the first ProtoMech itself. There have been many BattleMechs, such as the venerable BattleMaster and the Phoenix Hawk, that held their main gun in their hand rather than having it built into the BattleMech like most weapons are. These weapons are easier to replace or work on, though can be damaged easier, which is why many BattleMechs do not do this. The Smoke Jaguars used this concept on the Gorgon, allowing them to mount a very large and heavy weapon on the ProtoMech's left shoulder, a BattleMech-scale weapon that otherwise would have been too large to fit inside the normal structure of the design.

The Gorgon is a powerful heavy support unit, often anchoring a mixed ProtoMech Point. Its main cannon is a 10-tube LRM launcher, large even by BattleMech standards. The Gorgon's major weakness is its lack of significant backup weapons; this tough unit must often withdraw from combat when its ammo is depleted, relegating it to a support role rather than that of front line combatant.

The Smoke Jaguars, Ice Hellions, Jade Falcons, Nova Cats, and the Raven Alliance currently field this design in their support units.
