The Rusalka is a Inner Sphere Aerospace dogfighter with excellent speed and armor for dueling other fighters. Capable of sustained bursts of up to five-and-a-half gees, one of these fighters can be more than enough for an enemy to handle. Most identified configurations in Lore focus on energy weapons for maximum combat endurance, enabling this agile fighter to hang in the fight longer.

Roles and Gameplay Hints

Prime

If you think having 4 ERMBLs, 2 LRM10 and HPPC with extra 2 Laser guided bomds is exactly what you need, then GOOD NEWS, here you go.

Variant A

6 SXPLs, LBX10 and 2 Thunderbolts will net you nothing but mockery and ridicule on the ground, but in the air you will be feared if you manage to consistently hit something, otherwise its more mockery for you.

Variant B - "Morrigan"

Always felt like flying in Summoner Echo with weaker, Inner Sphere weapons? Then "Morrigan" is exactly for you! You get extra 2 Cluster bombs, and BHP so you have atlast something to brag about. Your welcome!

Variant C - "PoPo"

"PoPo", when you need exactly 6MBLs and 2 Air SSRM6 in one package. Its also the cheapest rusalka so theres that.

Variant D - "Incus"

"Incus", when you feel like dying as a flying fireball, blasting HPPC and dual MRM30s as you go. You also have 2 High Explosive bombs and whatever...

Variant E

Rusalka E, because why not have 2 ERMBL, 2 LRM20 and single RAC5 with 2 Laser guided bombs. With 5 free tons, what could possibly go wrong.

Variant F - "Malleus"

When you feel like dropping insults is not enough, drop dual Cluster bombs with "Malleus". You get HGauss and 2 LPLs as a bonus.

Variant G

If you want to flex on everyone with the most expensive Rusalka, take G! You get UAC20, 2 PPC and 2 SRM4, along with 2 High Explosive bombs and 3 free tons because why not, you are loaded.

Trivia

The Rusalka is an Inner Sphere Aerospace fighter. It was released in update 0.9.2, alongside the Anubis and Mithras.

Canon

The second in the Word of Blake's Spectral trio of Omnifighters, the Rusalka is among the Blakists' greatest feats of aerospace engineering. Incorporating excellent speed, maneuverability, and protection into one craft, Blakist engineers managed to make enough room to allow 33 tons of pod space. This all converges to make the Rusalka an especially deadly dogfighter, all the more augmented by the fighter's high endurance, thanks to its fixed eleven double heatsinks. The Prime - or Invictus - configuration mounts an ERPPC, an LRM-15 with Artemis IV, four ER Medium Lasers, two Medium Pulse Lasers, and an aft-mounted ER Small Laser.
