dropship/mech size comparison ...
« on: 16 September 2012, 02:08:30 »
I've been looking through all of My books for something that I'm no longer certain actually exists ...

I could've sworn there was a "line up" of a mech and several dropships do demonstrate the differences in their sizes, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Does this ring a bell for anyone? Please point Me in the right direction.

Thanks!

TRO:3039?

Edit: Yup. Pg 303


Certainly, a conspiracy to force pre-industrial economics onto a post-scarcity society could easily produce economic systems as screwed as FASA echognomics. However, I propose my counter-theory - that there are in the Inner Sphere 9 catgirls for every one human. This explains why planets can only maintain small military outputs - too much energy spent on taking care of the catgirls. They're never mentioned in canon because, at some level, everyone realises they're slightly ashamed of the whole thing.

that was EXACTLY what I was looking for!  thank you!
I looked through all My old FASA books ... I thought for sure it was an old drawing.

One other question that ties into this ... have the footprints of the dropships changed since the FASA Dropships and Jumpships book?
e.g. when a dropship is on a mapsheet, do they all still occupy the same number (and shape) of hexes as they did in that book?
