I just love the fact the Gladius looks like a battering ram.

For me it's the Saracen,  great mix of fire power, speed,and armor.

I'm really surprised nobody considers the lowly Hover APC Lance of Awesomeness!

For the total BV2 of: 533, you'd get a 4/5 unit.

One gets a Sensor ( 30 remotes ), an LRM-5 and a pair of SRM-2 armed APCs WITH Infantry, Foot Platoon of Ballistic Rifle! ( adding 81 extra ).

IF I wanted to harass you, I'd take these along, in groups of three! And then use my Infantry as spotters in Squad form...

The Maxim (I). Twelve tons of infantry/battlesuit delivery, plus TAG backed up by twin ER mediums and a Streak-6. It's like the Swiss Army knife of hovertanks, it has tools for making every kind of unit go away. And yes, I consider TAG to be the "main gun": when you have sufficient Arrow-IV support, TAG is the deadliest weapon the battlefield.

Given the option, I would use the Kanga. Who doesn't like a jumping hovertank? If not, then the Lightning is more than serviceable, especially if it is the Royal variant.....

Regulator.

Outside of the Regulator though I've always liked the Gladius.   I really don't like most of the Clan hover tanks.  So if I vote for anything as a favorite it would be a Clan Bandit.

If I'm going with favorite, I have to say Saladin (maybe Savannah Master). They're fun!
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

This can also be fun with Halburk's loaded with SG LRMS :-)
