Lighter, and eliminates the fuel train.  THAT expense is too often overlooked...  ^-^

There is that.  :)



If it ever got a record sheet somewhere they might have attempted to fix it. I'm going by the stats in the Mechwarrior first edition book.


It'd be really cool if all those old vehicles and robots got updated and put in a TRO. I'd guess that some might end up using support vehicle rules but that's okay.

If we go strictly by the art I imagine a lot of the vehicles would get considerably shrunk down. It's hard to argue that a basic ground car should be three tons or a jeep five. Nevermind the skimmer, which is drawn practically like a hoverbike.

Of course I could see some of those old light vehicles get rebranded with more appropriate art as different light units.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

True. I imagine they would too. I think going with stats based on art and fluff, and art based on stats would be nice too. It'd give us more vehicles to play with. The Robots would be more of a problem though as so much has changed.

i'd expect them to get a little slower too (many are ridiculously fast), and be built using the support vehicles rules rather than the combat vehicle ones.

Actual size however seems more like a Convertible Miata with the doors taken off.

Perhaps VW is better since its an engine in the rear like the Skimmer.
