Created with the help of Clan Steel Viper and Clan Star Adder as part of the 
"Snake Alliance" during the Wars of Reaving, the King Cobra first made its 
appearance in 3070 in the Clan Cloud Cobra's touman.  Based on the now-extinct 
Storm Giant, the King Cobra was a powerful, yet mobile battlemech capable of 
engaging targets effectively at any range.

Weighing in at 100 tons, the King Cobra is mobile for its size, due to the use 
of the Type 79 400XL Fusion Engine as its main powerplant.  The use of 
Endo-Steel chassis helps further save weight, while 18.5 tons of Forging ZK11 
Standard Armor would allow the 'mech to withstand a great deal of punishment.

In terms of long-range firepower, each arm has an Artemis-guided Type XX "Great 
Bow" LRM-20s, with each launcher supplied with two tons of ammunition; these 
are complemented by a Type DDS "Kingston" ER PPC mounted in the center torso.  
A Series 4D-2 Heavy Large Laser in the right side torso, complemented by a pair 
of Series 2b ER Medium Lasers, provide additional mid-to-close-range firepower. 
 A three-ton Targeting Computer improves direct-fire accuracy (and compensates 
for the Heavy Laser's inherent inaccuracy) while a whopping twenty-two double 
heat sinks provide great cooling capacity for the 'mech, although overheating 
could still be an issue.

The King Cobra is primarily deployed by Clan Cloud Cobra, although it has seen 
use in Clan Star Adder and Clan Steel Viper, until the latter was destroyed in 
a Trial of Annihilation in 3075.  Outside of those factions, the Clan Stone 
Lion is the only other faction to deploy the King Cobra battlemechs as part of 
their forces.

An experiment on making a Scylla OmniMech?

Not really; but that is a good idea.
