MechTalk - Jenner


One of the most common light 'mechs seen within the Draconis Combine it is considered a fairly modern design being completed in 2784.  Equipped with Jumpjets and a decent rated engine the Jenner can maintain high speeds in combat situations and remain highly mobile.  It has seen use as a guerrilla fighter on numerous worlds due to it's capabilities and as such has become a popular 'mech with all house military forces.

In Mechwarrior Online the Jenner is one of the more dependable light's in the game.  It has decent armour, good speed and it's jumpjets afford it the ability to escape dangerous predicaments quickly while maintaining it's speed.  It's variants feature a mix of missile and energy hardpoints but no ballistics.  Many Jenner pilots opt for a mix of medium lasers and SRM's to perform quick hit and run strikes on larger targets before darting away to it's next victim.  It cannot mount ECM however and it can be outclassed in terms of speed by the likes of the Spider and Raven, making it difficult for the Jenner to escape pursuers.

Another thing to remember is that the 'mech has a distinctive silhouette and can be easily identified from range.  It's large centre mass also makes it easier to hit when compared to other lights.  Still this does mean most enemy pilots will aim for the Jenner's torso instead of it's legs and you rarely see Jenner's being legged.
