Gremlin Light Tank
« on: 25 October 2023, 21:32:46 »
This one's essentially a fusion-engined Goblin at 25 tons.  Armor is almost identical (only missing 1 point due to being at maximum armor capacity), same speed and similar armor, and it has that 1-ton infantry bay.  Other than cost & weight, the only real difference between the two is that the Gremlin has a front-mounted flamer instead of the MG, mainly because there was 1 ton left over when using the MG+Ammo configuration.  Alternatively, you could put a MG + ammo to emulate the Goblin better and have 2 tons of infantry space, or scrap the anti-infantry armament for a full 3 tons of infantry space.

25 tons, 4/6, max armor, large laser + 3 tons of infantry bay. Very nice!!! I like it. Certianly militias that have the economic and tech means (those fusion reactors do not come cheap!) have access to some really nice equipment.

3 tons?  I only see one... but now that you mention it, I bet 3 tons could be crammed into a 30-ton version... off to SAW! :)

Well, I was mostly right... you can fit FOUR tons of infantry! ;D

Or, you know... three tons and a Paramedic plus an RL-5 in every other facing to mitigate crits (as DevianID pointed out to me)... ;)

Daryk, if you remove the flamer and MG in Retry's version, you can cram 3 tons of infantry in the tank. :)

Ah, I see... Flamer and HS (he replaced the MG with them).
