The Locust was one of the most produced and common Battlemechs of the fallen Star League. Bergan Industries began production of the 'Mech at eight of their facilities in 2499, and was still in peak production when the Star League fell several years later.

Several variants of the 'Mech have been produced and modified over the years, creating quite distinct versions. All modifications involve upgrading the Locust's firepower.
