Turret for a Clan vehicle
« on: 02 July 2024, 15:37:29 »
I am looking for an official vehicle for the Clans that would have Gauss Rifle, LRM and a Machine Gun in a turret.

Anyone knows if there is such a design?
In turn they tested each Clan namesake
In trial against the ice hellion's mettle.
Each chased the ice hellion, hunting it down.
All faild to match the predator's speed and grace.
Khan Cage smiled and said. "And that is how we shall be."

Nothing comes to mind that has that exact config.  The Eurus from Recognition Guide 29 has a Gauss, Large Pulse Laser, and three machine guns in an array in the turret, that's the closest I can think of.

The machine gun is the hard part, because first I was thinking Von Luckner

Von Luckner doesn't have a Gauss variant that I'm aware of.  To be honest, I'm struggling to think of any tank that has a Gauss Rifle and an LRM pod and a machine gun that are all mounted in the turret: the Mars has all three of those weapons but not in the turret, for example.

The K90 has a Gauss (and Snub PPC) and there are Vin Luckners with LRMs and MGs that could conceivable be replaced with a Gauss Rifle as an easy factory refit

Rommel and Axel both have turrets with AC20's, LRM's, and MG's. wouldn't be hard for one of those to be refit with a gauss. those are post-Star League IS designs, but if the design you're wanting it for is a post-invasion one, it wouldn't be hard to get. for that matter, the Patton could work for it as well, since a clan gauss weights about the same as an IS AC10.

Marksman M1A MBT isn't Clan but being a RotS weapon, you might have some clan crews &/or "Sub-Clan" access like the Steel Wolves & Spirit Cats.

Wasnt able to find anything directly matching, but there's a few omnivehicles out there that should let you custom a config if you really need one.

Might it be an option for a Clan Hell's Horses force to use the pod space on one of their OmniQuadVee designs - such as the Notos - to do this?

Thanks for the answers.

My idea was too see if a turret already existed and could have replaced the one of the Axel.
In turn they tested each Clan namesake
In trial against the ice hellion's mettle.
Each chased the ice hellion, hunting it down.
