Arash Missile Support BA
« on: 22 August 2023, 07:51:35 »
Named for the famous archer from Persian mythology

On its own, nothing special. But a standard BA squad means you've got a LRM-8, with eight salvos. The backup weaponry isn't all that unique, a Light Mgun + normal battle claw, and normal gloves on the off hand so potentially can carry some personal weapon. It can however do three hexes of ground movement, if though no jumping. It does have maximum armor though, which probably will help a lot considering even a few squads of these will get very annoying, very rapidly.

Yes, its a LMG.
MegaMekLabs is wrong at the name, but right about the kg mass.

I did something similar a while back. IIRC I used stealth armor instead, and made the LRM detachable so that the BA could make leg attacks after they ran out of LRMs.

10 armor does have something to say for itself, thought. :)

I'd think an LRM-1 and more ammo would be better overall, but that's just me.

With a LRM-1 you'd need 4 crit slots of ammo and 16 shots to match the same weight of LRMs, which would be quite a lot.
