No, the Victor is not optimized and it's far from my first choice at 80 tons but speaking as someone who has had a Awesome decapitated by a Victor, it deserves respect.

I would like to see a really nice IIC upgrade in the golden age TRO. The victor seems to have been a very common mech which was solid but nothing great. It seems that it would have languished in caches until some faction was creative or desperate enough to give it a new leash on life.

The basic "C" field refit from Twycross is one of the best "C" models in that book.

The Victor is loads better than some of them.

I admire the 9B for the fact the design dares to try something different - restoring mobility to an assault 'mech.  From that (narrow) perspective, you could say it is the best in 3025, since its competition is . . . the Banshee?  the Charger?  :o

Plus, when you kill or crit something, you can play Blondie's 'Love, Victor'.
