Melinoe Heavy Armor
« on: 27 March 2011, 20:22:11 »
Last Chance Engineering and Design's most recent foray into battle armor production is the heavy Melinoe battle armor. Like the Keres and Eurynomus light and medium armors, the Melinoe was named after a demon from the legends of ancient Terran Greece that preyed upon fallen warriors. Debuting in 3075, the Melinoe was slower to reach production than the other two largely because it was LCED's first BA design developed entirely in house.

I'm enjoying your designs.  This one seems a little squishy to me, but I've had a marked tendency to over armour my designs.  The stealth gear certainly makes this a fantastic ambush unit, especially coupled with Eurynomous variants to close the trap.

I did consider heavier armor, but I decided that payload was more important in the end (I really wanted it to be able to carry an ML from the start).
