Stealth Hetzer
« on: 31 October 2022, 09:47:35 »
What the hell Quikscell is doing with Stealth Armor, I leave to the viewer to come up with.  It may or may not involve a wild emu.  But you gotta admit, it makes a great little budget nosebreaker.

Brilliant idea, but I think that's too much ammo for a UAC.  It'll jam before getting through all 10 rounds of fire...  ::)

I wasn't sure what else to put in it, and the original carried a four ton ammo bay as well.  I agree that something like this is going to attract a tremendous amount of incoming fire (most of which will miss, ha ha) so it's not likely to survive much more than its initial volley of fire anyway.  Maybe three machine guns and a half ton of ammo, and two tons of UAC20 ammo - it's not designed to last long, so short ammo supplies would convince crews to shoot their wad and fall back quickly.  The MGs would be useful in cities, taking on infantry in its home environment where the Hetzer works best anyway.

That sounds like a better use of the tonnage to me!  :)

It hit me that the Bears have access to Stealth armor as of the Kontio, so why not make a Clan version?  I wondered what the scariest thing to put in a small urban assault tank that has a giant cannon on it would be.  Then it hit me - give it a Point of Elementals to back up that UAC20 with point-blank SRM and laser attacks to dig into those holes the big gun opens.  It's mean, but in an "overly well armed clown car" way.

Hmmm... I'm thinking an LB-20X would be better infantry support, but that wouldn't exactly be a Hetzer, now would it?  ^-^
