The Onager A concept borrowed from Dreadnought.
« on: 19 October 2022, 09:53:37 »
Well. I happen to still play Dreadnought from time to time. There is a shipclass, I find very fascinating and thought of being worth brought to Battletech. The Artillery cruiser.



To utilize the concept, I first wanted to build a lighter ship around 500.000 Tons. But had to make it heavier since the use of Mass Driver has a weight limit. Even a light one requires a minimum weight of 750.000 Tons, hence why this ship is so heavy. To make it up to date with Battletech I incluided some Backup weapons and even an integral Fighter Support. And 2 Docking Collars for additional Dropship suppoert.

5/8 with a Mass Driver? ???

You really only need 2/3 to ensure a compatible orbit...  ^-^
