The Griffon as it is commonly known is a large-calibre slug-throwing weapon adapted from field artillery pieces during the later stages of the Great War. When manufacturing new weapons became impractical or simply inefficient, an enterprising young general in District Callixis quickly begun retro-fitting 90mm howitzer cannons to Mechs and using those in battle and thus, the Griffon was born.
Although subsequent generations of the Griffon have been refined to the point where they are exceptionally dangerous weapons in their own right, they are also very reliable weapons with good anti-armour capabilities and due to the large stock piles of ammo left during the Great War, they have a plentiful supply of ordnance available for purchase in the most common calibres.
