Few BA designs
« on: 19 August 2020, 13:56:44 »
Few suits i've come up with. No fluff, pretty generic stuff for most part.

First, the Cavalier Stealth. The original Cavalier is pretty plain, though this is justifiable on the account of being just a variation of the IS Standard. But that's still boring, one would imagine the FedSuns, a big user of battle armor, would improve it at some point. (During the Dark Age, they do have the Cavalier II which uses some Clan tech BUT it lacks official record sheet.)
Swapped the armor to Basic Stealth but reduced amount to 8 points. Left-over weight went to using a Heavy Battle Claw and an AP weapon mount. MWM capacity stays the same, example below has laser because it neatly takes up 200 kg.
The heavy claw is arguably worthless but there wasn't enough mass available to add to the MWM nor to use 9 points of armor, so...

Unfortunate MegaMek Lab doesn't handle MWM yet (will it ever?), can't export quite accurate TRO entry. Had to correct armor values too, exported text just shows total durability rather than "armor + trooper" separately.

Anti Personnel Weapon Mount   Left Arm     1        5 kg 

Second suit, the "Incendiary BA". Has no name unfortunately, couldn't think any. Initially i thought of this as a CapCon suit, given that they are big on all sorts of nasty stuff, but at the same time the Draconis Combine actually has experience using Clan-spec Fire Resistant armor in the Oni. Maybe this is just a generic Dark Age-era incendiary suit?

Anyway, what this does is pretty simple. Jumps 3, 8 points of Fire Resistant Armor, fixed Heavy Flamer, searchlight and vibro claw.

Searchlight                     Body       1        5 kg 

Third, another nameless suit that sports good ground speed and twin light recoilless rifles and improved sensors. 8 points of advanced armor, basic manipulators. Should be adept at urban combat.
Also a variation that drops improved sensors and trades speed for 90 meter jump capacity and a search light, more of a general purpose suit.

I posted remakes of the "standard BA" a while ago, one for each great house. IIRC my Cavalier was the same as yours other than a second MWM in place of the battle claw.
