Daishi / Dire Wolf

In addition to the common casting, a modified version was made available in some Mechwarrior 3 boxed sets. This version appears to be based off the original, but has additional detail in some places. In 2004 a newer, larger sculpt was released.

Mech Picture This mech is part of an arctic assault lance with Gladiator, Man-o-war, and Masakari. The composition of this lance is a typical Clan assault omni arrangement. The airbrushed paint scheme gives camoflauge suitable for fighting on the ice plains of polar regions. The unit shows the markings of Clan Ghost Bear.

Mech Picture This mech is part of an assault lance with an Atlas, Goliath, and Battlemaster. The checker logo is a custom design, and the lance is finished with an airbrushed arctic camo. Weighing in at nearly 400 tons, this is about the nastiest lance you can put together.

STATUS: Custom job, delivered February 10/1999.

Mech Picture "Terror from the Clans"
Simply put, the Daishi (Dire Wolf) is the most fearsome mech in the game (as of 3050). It's as big as they get, and it's totally tripped out with hideous Clan weaponry. This mini has a three-color airbrushed camo job, and blue/yellow lozengy markings. Using jeweler's tools, the artist has separated the gun barrels on each arm for a more realistic look than the stock mini.

STATUS: Sold, 03/1999.
