The Thunderbolt started production in 2491 as a planetary-assault mech, and in fact was one of the heaviest mechs produced at that time. Since then the mech, also known as T-Bolt, may have had its classification changed, as larger mechs were built, but thanks to periodic updates it is still feared and respected by many. With its varied arsenal, the Thunderbolt remains one of the best-armed mechs, making it capable of serving in many capacities. It is also an incredibly well-armored mech, rivaling or exceeding the amount of armor carried by some assault mechs. The biggest downside to the Thunderbolt though is poor heat management.

The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers

FDM version features:
- Contain 28 parts;
- Made with Joints and Claws. One part of Joint (8_Axis_2_A_Joint_(x4)) you need to print 4 times. One part of Joint (19_Axis_1_A_Joint_(x2)) you need to print twice. One part of Claw (9_A_Claw_(x6)) you need to print 6 times.
- Made with Locks. One part of Lock (3_Ge_lock_10H_(x12)) you need to print 12 times.
- All limbs are movable as in the game: legs, weapons and torso rotating 360 °
- All parts are divided in such way that you will print them with the smallest amount of supports.

DLP/SLA/SLS version features:
- Same as FDM but smaller, also made as 16 parts;

All STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.
