Wow, that is..... yeah, that's something I had never thought of a dang if I don't like the heck out of it!!
  And I say that as someone who doesn't like making the game any more complex w/ things like "Arti-Cannons" from Max Tech, but I can't help it, I like that.

Its like a wee little SW version of the Regulator-Arrow.  >:D

Thats a really good use for an artillery cannon.  The Scimitar already was looking to do poke or infantry damage with the ac5 and paired srm2s, so the thumper and mgun fill roughly the same mission while letting the Scimitar now fire indirect, which I think suits hovercraft perfectly.

Nice, though I'm not sure about the SnAC vs. AC/20 trade off on a hover.  With that speed, a Saladin is probably a bit more dangerous (at least to 'mechs slower than it; the SnAC is a nice scout hunter).  :)

An artillery cannon on such a light flatform? At least it is clear that you won't be a friend of an infantrymen.... Else you are a good friend as long as you are their allies.
