Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries is a battlemech piloting simulation and part of the Mechwarrior and Battletech universe unleashed by FASA Studios. In April 2010, MekTek received permission from Microsoft to release the game for free using their MekMatch torrenting program. Now that MekTek has refocused its energies on Mechwarrior Online, it is up to the community to keep the classic mech piloting tradition alive. This group will also serve as a platform for downloading new content created by the community, including new maps and mech decals, some of which have been hosted by other enthusiast sites.
This file pack contains mech variants based on those used in Battletech: The Animated Series, with further reference drawn from the 1st Somerset Strikers sourcebook (which is also included in the pack). WinRar is required to open the file.
With these variants and decals, you can fight alongside Major Adam Steiner and his 1st Somerset Strikers...or unite the Inner Sphere under the Clans while taking direction from Star Colonel Nicolai Malthus!
