Hetzer - Hunter Upgrade
« on: 09 May 2021, 16:02:05 »
The Hetzer is a very limited vehicle. Being wheeled, it cannot cross most of terrains. The main weapon of the standard version, the AC/20 offers good damage but with short range which is a major problem in a vehicle that is not particularly fast and have no turret.

This is a possible upgrade that requires the replacement of the engine for a larger one, rated at 180 (same as used in the SRM/Carrier and the Galleon light tank) to give a speed 5/8. Armor remains the same and the AC/20 is replaced by an AC/10 with 20 rounds. Damage is lower but range is much better. The new variant is fast enough to pursue medium mechs and position much quicker on the map.
