Not much to it; a lot more heat sinks, some extra armor, and much better range.  Still a headcapper but not the monster hit - then again it can fire all day instead of hold its rounds carefully...

Oh yeah, that works out well.

I really like this Victor, the only change I would like is a lrm5 for the srms. Still, I wouldn't
hesitate to use it. Two thumbs up.

Not too shabby, though I might suggest only 12.5 tons of armour (which it would eventually be up-armoured to circa 3050, so totally in line with canon standards) with the extra ton diverted to bumping the heat sinks to 22.  Against a total Alpha Strike + Jump heat output of 29, this is arguably quite beneficial in helping to avoid heat related to-hit penalties when going all-out.  And since a Victor doesn't have that many guns to begin with, it rather needs to leverage to do so.  Besides which, it gives it a better ability to actually cool off a bit when hanging out at medium range and leaning solely on the Blazer.
