Crab CRB-54
« on: 22 January 2022, 01:46:59 »
So I was going through all my recognition guides the other day and adding all the mechs to my Solaris Skunk Werks master unit list so it's easier to look up everything in the database than trying to remember what mech is in what guide all the time. I got to the Crab in Vol. 5 and as far as I can tell I have everything set in the program to exactly what's in the Rec Guide and the thing always comes up 2.5 tons over weight. Am I crazy or is the mech an illegal design?

The 'Mech is correct, you're making a mistake somewhere. Been there, done that myself certainly.
Two ideas:
First: Composite internal Structure.
Second: check mass: Not 55 tons, not 45 tons, etc.

-What's the difference?

That's it, thanks. I wasn't paying enough attention to the internal structure to see composite.
