In 3055, Luthien Armor Works (LAW)  had ceased production of the Dragon, having 
retooled most of the Dragon facilities to produce Grand Dragons instead.  
However, the company did set aside a couple of facilities in Luthien to 
experiment with the Dragon chassis. After the Clan invasion, LAW would modify 
those facilities to upgrade still-functional Dragon battlemechs as part of the 
DCMS rebuild, resulting in the DRG-6K variant.

The DRG-6K retains the Telos DecaCluster LRM-10 launcher in the center torso, 
as well as the two Victory 23R Medium Lasers; however, the Autocannon on the 
right arm was replaced with an Imperator Dragon's Fire Gauss Rifle, and another 
Medium Laser was added in the right torso.  Both the Gauss Rifle and the LRM-10 
launcher have two tons of ammo to draw from, all of them stored in the right 
torso and protected by CASE.

In order to increase the firepower without sacrificing speed, the engine was 
replaced with a Hermes 300XL version.  Protection was also upgraded by using 11 
tons of New Samarkand Royal Ferro Fibrous armor, and the heat sinks were upgraded to 
double heat sinks to keep the cool-running profile, just like the original 

The DRG-6K is primarily deployed by the DCMS, often used as replacements for 
older Dragons or Grand Dragons.

Despite being a variant of the original Dragon, the DRG-6K has also spawn 
several sub-variants:

DRG-6KM - this sub-variant has a similar armament as the Grand Dragon, but 
increases the double heat sinks to 15, and also utilizes a C3 Master Computer.  
This sub-variant is not very popular.

DRG-6KN - this sub-variant drops one ton of armor in exchange for a C3 
Slave.  Often matched with the DRG-6KM.
