I had this idea of if you had limited dropship room and you wanted a lot of bang for tonnage, and I hadn't seen a Canon RAC Demolisher, then a RAC armed Demolisher might be attractive to maniacs like me.

And then I found if I went all out with the XL engine I could fit a third RAC-5 and 3 more tons of ammo for it...

So...I know two AC-20s is really nice for that bubble of doom...but three RAC-5s? That's pretty scary...

I like it, it's a little like an Alacorn, but it goes BBBBBRRRRTTTT and no-one wants to get close.

Can its little brother play too?

Another one which never got an RAC5, and since it's basically the same mass as thy olde AC10 plus the ammo, it's not even that hard.

Edit: the FCE is because it fit fairly well, and it might need the speed in the age of the Pixu and Manteuffel.

You know, you could make an Alacorn with FOUR RAC/5.

Damn. It's not even that outlandish, as mass-wise they drop straight into the Mk. VII. Why you'd change two big brawler weapons for four stacks of DAKKA, I don't know, but it would make a scary lance-partner. The armour takes a knock, but Heavy Ferro-Fibrous helps boost it back to the protection of its tri-Gauss ancestor:

I think he meant take the Mk6 & drop in 4 RACs (40 tons) in the space of the 3 Gauss (45 Tons).

The extra 5 tons goes to some ERMLs & 3 more tons of Ammo I'd say.   Giving you 2 tons per gun.

Not really my cup of tea, but it does provide LOTS of 5 point spam at medium range.

For the record, this option also works with quad LB10X too.
