Dire Wooly Dire O

So way back when, someone posted an inner sphere version of the Dire wolf.  And it did as decent a job as you would expect from an inner sphere version of a clan mech.


I liked the idea so much I did the same thing.  I just used a 200 ton chassis so I could fit a weapons loadout that actually matched the Dire Wolf Prime.  It was the Dire Wooly Dire...


And I can't remember or confirm what the name of both mechs was.  It was a word that was supposed to mean wolf that started with "O."  I thought it was Oclan, but I'm getting no matches on Google that it means wolf in another language.


Anyone have a guess, a clue, or a memory?


In other news.  Been using the wayback machine on solaris 7.  If nothing else it's reminded me of a few forgotten designs.  (Not the one I'm actually looking for though...)

I'm 100% certain that's not it.  And I'm going to go with it anyways.  It fits very well, especially if it's the Dracs doing their best to copy the Dire Wolf.

With o?

I was looking through some of the designs I had saved, and came across this.

It's not an "O" name, but it's not to far off a Dire Wolf Primes load out.
