TAC Dragon
« on: 30 June 2022, 17:37:18 »
Casperionx gets credit for this idea!  :thumbsup:

So instead of Davion techs repurposing a salvaged Dragon later in the 31st century, they do it somewhere around 3015.  The Thumper Artillery Cannon is new on the scene!  Believe it or not, the two tons of ammunition it retains are stored in the safest possible places.  Essentially, the Dragon TAC drops two tons of ammo and the rear-firing Medium Laser to upgrade the AC/5 to a Thumper Artillery Cannon, and adds a ton of armor (taking a cue from the DRG-1C).  It might force a 20-point roll at six hex range...  ^-^

That has me wondering at how fast you can get a mech with a TAC with at least 2 tons of ammo and either 60% or 80% Armor Coverage.
Are you a Wolf, a Sheep, or a Hound?
