Another commission for Mr. Balk. This is the Warthog -- an 85 ton assault mech with x2 rotary auto-cannon 5's, an ultra auto-cannon 10, and x2 medium lasers. This guy is a proud member of the Warpigs Merc. outfit.
I swear I have seen the 2 RAC/5, 1 UAC/10 before in the same spots (and barrel numbers), admitedly, that's all that seems familiar, but I still gotta know if this was posted somewhere else already or if we have a case of simultaneous development, and I am remembering a different machine.
Well, without knowing the armor/engine ratings (though I always get a visual sense that chicken walkers are meant to be faster) on this one at least, could swap the mediums for smalls to get an extra ton, or even drop them entirely to carry two more tons
Okay, in SSW I can get 85 on 3/5 with a light fusion and endo, with four tons of rotary and two of ultra ammo, allowing another rotary 5 to be carried. But then yeah its full up with the always nice choice of endo or ammo in the head...
Four tons for two rotary autocannons wouldn't go that far. The usual rule of thumb is three tons per rotary cannon. I'd heartily recommend adding a ton or two more per, and using the freed tonnage to beef up the engine.
