Sloth infantery support
« on: 04 November 2011, 06:49:07 »
Thinking about how to use the Sloth to support infantery in the best way after reading the BAotW article. I can really only think of two good ways:

-Bring more weapons.
-Bring bigger weapons.
-Bring new weapons.
-Bring something else that isn't weapons.

The first is simple: Just pack in SRMs, RRs and the like. The second would be a ML and whatever else you can get!

So I tried for a combined 3 & 4. This variant adds LRM capability and electronics to the infantery formation:

Code: [Select]
Sloth support:
Heavy quad BA, 3 ground MP, 10 points standard armor, 2xLMG, LRM2 w/ 11 rounds, Advanced sensors, ECM.

Cost 482,000, BV 56/289

As an alternative 3 rounds of LRM ammo can be dropped for a Light TAG to bring in ballistic death:

Code: [Select]
Sloth support TAG:
Heavy quad BA, 3 ground MP, 10 points standard armor, 2xLMG, LRM2 w/ 8 rounds, LTAG, Advanced sensors, ECM.

Cost 522,000, BV 56/289
