Fighter of the Week Workshop #005 - Visigoth

  If custom configurations are permitted in a game, I'd take a modified Charlie loadout for general-purpose use, trading in another MPL in place of the SRM-4 - better range, better chance to hit, and no ammo concerns.

  For slightly longer-endurance anti-shipping work than the fearful Visigoth-A offers, there's the loadout I've drawn up below.  Failing those, a stock Visigoth-A would suit me just fine, since it's such a versatile config: it can perform well in aerospace superiority, ground-attack, anti-shipping... if the Visigoth-A configuration had more armour, it'd be the F-4 Phantom of the Clan aero-fleet.  If an all-up modification of the base chassis were permitted, I'd pile on another two tons of armour (to nerf those omnipresent IS MLs) and field effectively stock configs that omitted the tail-guns; if your Point-mate's (impressive!) forward batteries can't clear your tail for you, you're in too deep for the standard-config aft weapons to do it anyway - or you never should have left your wingmate in the first place.  >:(
