MechWarrior 5 - where to find hero mechs?

The search for hero mechs relies heavily on luck. This is because there are no fixed locations where they spawn, other that it being industrial hubs. You are therefore doomed to search on your own. Of course, the game gives you clues as to where you can find such a machine.

Locating a hero mech requires you to go to a planet that is part of an industrial hub. You will recognize it by the fact that it is connected by dotted lines to neighboring celestial bodies. If a system has a skull above it (like in the graphic below), it means that a hero mech is available for purchase.
