Catapult Battle Armor
« on: 27 June 2019, 17:07:13 »
Because there's a Marauder Battle Armor, the logical extension is Catapult Battle Armor. "Logical". Had actually an idea for "Mad Cat" BA, so this was an intermediate step.

Heavy, jumps 2. Has MagClamps like the Marauder armor.
10 points of armor.
Armament consist of twin APWmounts in torso and each arm has a LRM-2 rack, with each rack having 4 shots (i edited shot amounts to code block below, MML didn't export it correctly, 4 shots weights about 66.4kg). Larger racks weren't possible in order to keep the aesthetic because ammo has to share the launcher location.
Finally, the thing has a TAG just like the Marauder BA.
This all should fit just about to 1500kg.

Technically I think you're 5 kg overweight. AFAIK you have to round up the weight of each weapon/ammo set individually, each LRM will be 190 kg (rather than ~187). :(

But dropping to a single APWM shouldn't be a terrible sacrifice. :)

In Megameklab it comes in at 1.498 tons with the same specifications, so I think your good. I like the design idea.

I had this odd mental Image of the Mechcommander Catapult with a brood of these little things at its feet and seeing little pewpew and whoosh whoosh noises from the feet, like chicks chirping.   :)) ;D

I believe you need a heavy battle claw for a heavy unit to travel on mechs. The clamp's alone are not enough.
