The first set of numbers are also from Wikipedia (and yes, both sets have citations).  I went and found the second set because I figured it would be just like Wikipedia to contradict itself.

Well, that figures. #P

Well, i did match up between Daishi Prime (teamed with the original Tomahawk) vs Tomahawk II Prime (teamed with the Deimos Prime) on Megakmek.

Well, used standard pilots on a one map scenario two on two and results weren't what i'd expected.  But reinforced my feelings on one of the design.   Daishi's weapons spam pretty much headshooted the Tomahawk II, HAG30s aren't as effective as I thought they would be.  The Deimos lasted longer, but was killed via Tomahawk's gauss rifles.   Maybe i handled it wrong, but I still feel the original Tomahawk is the better machine over Tomahawk II.

That is the thing that bugs me the most about the configs: no headcappers.

Don't forget about the Tomahawk I. 3 of its 4 configs have 2 Headcappers.

That is exactly what I expected would happen.  The Tomahawk II configurations are all kind of weak so I am not surprised that the better configured original design outperformed it, to say nothing of all the brutal Dire Wolf configurations out there.
