I had a half ton left over, and stuffed a Recon Camera in there so it could spot for its friends while mugging someone with 24 Small Lasers and two punches (or Alpha Strike and a kick).

I didn’t know how much I needed this in my life.  That’s gonna be quite the heat burden, though.

When I went to stuff heat sinks in, I realized it almost has enough!  Heck even a running Alpha Strike only builds 9.  For a 3025 'mech, that's par for the course...  :)

when i see designs like this, i speculate that, IG, someone actually WOULD make this. Hear me out... lets say this machine is a militia unit that got wrecked AF and the parts just wasn't gonna come. But you had this crate filled with Small Lasers. Now you had heatsinks, since the local HS plant makes them so you convinced the CO to OK it since you are normally assigned to the metroplex anyway where LOS and range is always a issue to anyone fighting in a city... now you have the most ridiculous Charger ever...

Totally!  I've mentioned elsewhere that I've used Griffins and Eridani Thunderbolts with the LRM-10s replaced with 10 Small Lasers.  Those were FUN rides!  :D

In addition to the tricky heat curve, I also threw in the problem of using a powerplant that nobody produces.  ;D
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

No, no, no.  That recon camera isn't for spotting; it's for creating YouTube holovids for bragging later!  It's all about the self-aggrandizement!

Oh, and this all was done first by the Commando in Crescent Hawks' Inception. ;)

The recon camera is for recording the Pink Floyd laserium shows

Add custom paint for the armor colors, and you have a larger version of the Partyback
