Agreed. I would think the spirits would have had a lot of “
C” variants of star league mechs which soldiered on far longer Turkmen
In other clans. Which is why I love any new “ old “
Designs as I can place them into my spirits or Jaguar huntress garrison

One of the fun things is Blood Spirits have access to Protomech ACs. The tonnage and ammo efficiency for the two PAC/8's compared to AC/20s makes those
remarkably good swaps. And, you can even swap 2 PAC/8s for AC/10s, and not lose much. And then, you would gain more ammo swapping out standard lasers
for Heavy lasers..Seriously: a Blood Spirit Retrofit Centurion "C" taking a CN-9A chassis would be kind of scary, even if it would be a significant upgrade just
because of swapping out the IS Single Heat sink standard engine for a Clan DHS engine..

I'd keep SHS as much as possible, for flavor reasons mostly.

Well, once you start putting HLs on, different story.  With that 9A ex. I'd keep the SHS.  If one of the Med HLs is mounted aft, heat is a minor issue.

Never was fond of the idea of mounting Proto weapons on a Battlemech. As crew served weapons for infantry? Yes but not on a mech.

PAC/2 is actually respectable for her class. Good range, extremely light weight, access to specialty rounds (like precision rounds).

sounds like a good vtol or hover weapon, esp on a lighter frame where 6 tons (c AC +ammo) is a tad to much. So, an extra 1.5 tons towards armor, engine, or equipment is good. [edit: whaaaat it reaches to 20 hexes? for 3.5 tons, well 4.5 w/ammo.  take that LAC-2]

On my custom 15t quad, it would work nice (hmmm maybe w a mech turret too)

Did a simple tweak on Donar Assault Helicopter in Fan Designs' combat vehicles board. Streak to *plain* launchers. (inferno capable? I know nothing!). So that it could get a mast mount and have a recon camera mounted on it. Could do a Light Active Probe instead of the camera.

Some asking about tanks?
 
Blood Spirit's have access to Clan General, like everyone else, they also make use of the Bandit C, Badger C non omnitanks. Royal and non-Royal SLDF tanks as well.

So pick your Star's functions and crack open the TRO's.

Remember, most clans disdain the usage of waste, tanks are wastefulness but has their merits. Clan Blood Spirit uses them as supplemental forces.

If I was you, I'd pick two or more Points as the main force, adding in scouts or bodyguard units to fill out. Making a single Command a Nova is an excellent way of increasing your abilities. ( Fast Recon anyone? ) Also remember, clan tank stars fight as a single identity, there's no My point vs. yours here. It's all or nothing mentality. ( Hence the wastefulness )

Also dont forget a Clan point for armor is two tanks. Means a Star is actually ten tanks and not five.

And while you're at it, make sure you fill in your blind spots...

ECM cuts off Artemis signals, AMS can kill a good missile salvo and LOS is a tankers best friend. As you can hide behind a Level 1 terrain feature and make it rain while your spotter is zooming from behind them for backshots.

Well I finally got to use the Blood Spirit Minsk in combat. Very nasty and would have dominated pretty much any duel it got in. My opponent broke Clan Honor and used massed fire to kill it. And it died to a hit to the Ammo Bins and a hit to the Gauss Rifle. Not cored out.

I'd love to post a pic. But i have no clue how to make it small enough. They always end up huge on the forums.

I think this would work for bringing it out:
So, Carroberg Crimson shade or Blood Angels Red Contrast over the red area, then drybrush Mephiston Red over all and Wazdakka Red on the highlights.
Arms go over with either nuln oil wash or Basilicanum Grey contrast, then dry brush adminstratum grey over all, and celestra gray for the highlights.

I've ordered another Minsk and may try what you recommend with it.
