M510 Mammoth
« on: 25 May 2022, 00:04:05 »
My by-hand attempt at recreating the M510 Mammoth from Halo 4 as a mobile structure. It's dimensionally accurate (within the degree of precision that BattleTech allows), and mounts as close to the correct weapons, equipment, and bays as I could manage. Unfortunately, some compromises had to be made to keep it a legal unit, but all in all, I'm pretty happy with the result.

For those unfamiliar, the Mammoth is a large mobile command center manufactured and used by the UNSC. It carries a complement of Warthog Light Reconnaissance Vehicles and Mongoose Ultra-Light All-Terrain Vehicles for scouting and fast attacks, as well as two onboard M79 MLRS turrets for self-defense. Its main armament is its Mark 2457/35cm HRG "Mini-MAC", which, though often reliant on external targeting for targets at unusual angles, can put a nasty dent in even Forerunner vessels. Outside of combat, the Mammoth acts as a mobile base, with officers coordinating local ground forces from the Mammoth's bridge. Plenty of extra man-portable weapons, ammunition, and medical supplies are often kept aboard Mammoths, allowing the vehicle to also serve as a mobile resupply point for UNSC infantry in the field.

Walking the fine line between sarcasm and being a smart-ass

500 is the number of Warships just passed the 567

Sadly, sub-capital direct-fire weapons cannot make surface-to-surface attacks. Lame, I know. However, if you want to fudge it, it qualifies for Capital-Long range, which, if memory serves, is 18/36/40 (on aerospace maps, on the ground map that becomes 288/576/640).

its 20 standard damage, so not as awesome as we all think.

Mhm. Not amazing, but hey. That's 20 damage that you can throw at droppers as they try to come in to land, with enough range to take at least six or seven shots, usually many more, before they under-run your surface-to-orbit/atmosphere attack range.

Always hated the disconnect there. 10 Damage for 1 Capital? Wouldn't like 50=1 or 100=1 make more sense?

Only when used by aerospace units though. That's also standard-long, not capital-long.

I may need to borrow this sometime. Land Battleships are always fun and one of the few things that can give an Assault Company a bad day.
