During Operation SCOUR, the Word of Blake forces were slowly being pushed back
by the Allied Coalition forces led by Devlin Stone.  The Blakists were throwing
everything at their enemies, including actual kitchen sinks, and while the
Coalition Forces did suffer a massive amount of damage, the Blakists suffered
just as much, if not worse.

In desperation, the Blakists resorted to deploying some of their Protectorate
Militia Divisions, with battlemechs modified and/or upgraded with the latest
technology available.  One of those modified battlemechs was the APL-3WB Apollo.

Unlike the original Apollo, which was intended to pummel enemies from long-range, the
APL-3WB model is a bit more flexible, although it seems to be better suited for urban combat. 
Rather than having an LRM-15 in each side torso, this Apollo variant replaces those launchers with an MML-9 in each side torso, with each launcher supplied with one ton of LRM ammo, and one ton of SRM ammo.Supporting these launchers are an
ER Medium Laser on each arm, an ER Medium Laser in the center torso, and a Small Pulse Laser in the center torso as well. However, with only ten double heat sinks,
the APL-3WB is susceptible to heat issues. For protection, the Apollo APL-3WB has 10.5 tons
of Ferro-Fibrous armor, and all of the ammunition is CASE-protected.  This variant of the Apollo is also more mobile, as each leg was fitted withtwo Chilton 360 jump jets.

Battle History:
During the Blakist counterassault on Dyev in December 3076, the Blakists' Third Bryant,
First Lipton, and Second New Earth Protectorate Militia Divisions all deployed several
Apollo APL-3WB battlemechs as part of their forces.  Both the  battlemechs and the
Blakist units that deployed them were destroyed by the Ghost Bears.

The Apollo APL-3WB variant is mainlydeployed in Word of Blake Protectorate Militias,
primarily for defensive purposes, with the exception of the disastrous Blakist counterattack
in Dyev.

Hm, not bad but kinda normal. Truth be told, I'd drop one of the MMLs and an ER Medium for a full LRM15 for more ranged damage- anything comes close and you're still dumping 9 SRMs into them.
