Edge of Tomorrow Quad Tilt Rotor PA(L) Carrier
« on: 09 October 2016, 12:57:43 »
So it seems I've been watching my Edge of Tomorrow DVD a little too much lately.  While BattleTech doesn't use PA(L) in platoons of 30, it sure looks like that's what these things could carry, so I put in a 15 ton compartment (with fractional accounting, you could probably cut it down to 12).  The door guns look to be far more flexible than the rules can actually support, so I just put one in each side.  Quirk-wise, the movie made them look lumbering, so Poor Performance seemed to fit, and that provided enough points to account for the rotor arrangement and give some flexibility to the door gun mounts.

Pretty decent approximation of it

Considering it's size I was thinking a support vehicle 60 tons maybe with a hoist or more than one representing the weird deployment method double machine guns that need to be manned

I might have a go tomorrow after work

Cool... I'll have a look tomorrow, then.  I'd have to hand jam a support vehicle since SAW doesn't support them (which is not a complaint... SAW is awesome for what it does).
