Make the AT-RT
« on: 28 December 2021, 07:57:04 »
In my on going quest to make things from other Sci-Fi into Battletech I was thinking of making the AT-RT form Star Wars.

I figured a Mechanized Infantry with a 4 or 5 walking MP with a Support Laser. Is there a way to make it or am I just going to have to wing it??

You could also go with a light or medium battle armor with a high walk speed and small laser or two

Like that Idea more. Think I will try that. Its more Protomech sized but it could work.

Not exactly light, but made this 8-ton Protomek for scouting purposes.  3 tons for the engine so it can move 7/11, almost 1 ton for armor, 1.5 tons of equipment (full-size Beagle Probe, plus Recon Camera), a half ton for a single weapon, and 750 kg for the heat sinks.  No Jump capacity, and really thin armor.

I think I'd go for a quad BA to simulate its performance. Not certain I remember all weights correctly...

IS light quad BA, 5 ground MP, Jump booster, 3 basic stealth armor, ERMiL, LGL.

That should leave 70kg and 2 slots for advanced sensors/remote sensors/mission equipment.

I 3d printed some At-Pt and I put it against the Kickstarter Marauder.

Yeah, those are definitely more BA than mech or protomech. Honestly the design reminds me of the heavy work exoskeleton from TRO3026, only optimized for mobility rather than lifting ability.

I made them a 4ton Proto with a 5/8 movement ER Small Laser with a light active probe, 16 armor.
