Longbow, Carnival edition!
« on: 27 May 2020, 04:55:20 »
Longbow LGB-0W Carnival

Nobody knows where it came from, who sent it, or who its pilot works for. Some say its approach is heralded by bombastic music and spectacle. Others swear its pilot is an unbelievably enthusiastic young woman of apparently Combine descent. All we can say for certain is it stalks the periphery, leaves destruction in its wake, and was clearly the product of a truly deranged individual.

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.

It really bothers me how much better rocket launcher 10s are compared to the larger alternatives. What's better than 345 rockets? 500! All with uniformly long range!

I kinda had to force myself to not use them exclusively on this and other designs I've been making for a record sheet book I'm compiling. It's no fair assuming later generations were the ones that ended up dropping the ball.

I think the reasoning was fratricide for the larger racks.  But yeah, it's just weird that you can get 20 rockets with longer range for the same tonnage as 15...

Well we have a carnival, now we need the disco to go with it.  Time for a Clan Assault with ALL THE LAZERS oh and laser heat sinks too.  Time for a Partay.

Needs moar rockets!  I mean, it only has 345 of them!

Amusingly, I'd almost prefer to see this as a primitive LGB-0C than an LGB-0W.  You can get the same 50 criticals for rocket launchers you've got here, and carry 19.5 tons of primitive armor, giving you 209 points, and keep the small laser, with 12 single heat sinks.

I now have this amusing image of the Carnival's ancestor being a primitive Longbow first seen back during the Reunification War. Or maybe Carnival herself is just that old, and has been rebuilt and upgraded over the generations.
