Like an AC 10 Vedette, but fancy
« on: 03 March 2024, 00:36:16 »
  The Escorpion Imperio at some point had the AC 10 variant of the Vedette (previously an extinct marik variant of the tank) in service during the Early Republic Era, most likely a case of another faction having the same idea the FWL did.

  So here's a clan version of that, sort of a conventional vehicle equivalent to the Cazador mechs also in service, most likely used by grunt formations.

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.

A full ton of MG ammo? ???

A half ton more armor would get every location over a 5-point break point... ;)

I concur about the full ton of ammo. I also think you'd get more use out of that fusion engine by using a small battery of equivalent Clan laser weaponry instead of the MGs, although I can see why such tech might be omitted.

Otherwise, if you picked up a 3095 dictionary and looked up "Tank" you'd probably see a picture of this vehicle. I have no complaints.

Wow, I didnt know they made an ac10 vedette, and an 8tons armor one at that.  Considering this is that, but clan fancy, I agree I think you nailed it.
