IS Standard Battle Armor space variant
« on: 26 February 2020, 18:56:05 »
Made a space variant from the IS Standard, similar to the Elemental's space variant.
Of course the IS suit is nowhere near as capable...

Had to reduce armor to 8 points as i didn't want to use advanced armor (keeping this simple).
Modular weapon mount reduced to 110kg, with two slots.
Both arms have heavy battle claw.
Added cutting torch and AP weapon mount to left arm.
Added space operations adaptation (and a superfluous searchlight).

Figured that configs would be:
Standard Machine Gun (BV 182)
Heavy Grenade Launcher with extended magazine (BV 150)
Firedrake Needler (BV 158)
Light TAG (BV 142)
David Light Gauss Rifle (BV 198)
Improved Sensors (BV 149)

The latter three don't offer burst-fire capability but added options never hurt anyone.
BVs are from MegaMek Lab, hope they're correct...

Also, Marine Point value (in space):
4.5 or 5.5 per suit depending on whether it has a burst-fire weapon or not.
Total would be thus 18 or 22 for a standard IS squad.
This does pale in comparison to Elemental (Space) point's 30 and isn't much better than stock Elemental's 20 with burst-fire weapon.
For contrast normal Inner Sphere Standard squad has value of 8 or 12 depending on its weapon.
