I like it, except for the supercharger. It's a sniper, 5/8 should be enough for it to maneuver at it's prime ranges.

Use the weight for more MML ammos - LRM smoke, SRM Inferno, as well as standard. And if you don't mind stretching it a little, give it the "Power Reverse" quirk, so it can back up at flank speed.

* Because Battletech is a conspiracy by Habsburg & Bourbon pretenders - MadCapellan
* The Hellbringer is cool, either way. It's not cool because it's bad, it's cool because it's bad with balls - Nightsky
* It was a glorious time for people who felt that we didn't have enough Marauder variants - HABeas2, re "Empires Aflame"

Honestly I'd drop it for a second ton of Gauss Rifle Ammo for those tricky shots: I mean if it's meant to snipe, even with a LGauss, your going to be having some modifiers.

But definitely ditto what Worktroll said.

*FIXED*

Had to reduce the armor slightly, since somehow it was 2.5 tons overweight. Dropped the Supercharger and added an extra ton of LGR ammo.
