Realism is not going to cut it, Battletech is not a realistic universe by any stretch of the imagination, so please stop using it in an argument.

That's debatable, but let's face it; some folks gave them a pass because they were big and claimed to be Scottish.

I'd drop an ER Small, along with 2 heat sinks, add back a third AP Gauss and then double the ammo... well 39 rounds... or 11 turns.

Should be scary when 5 of these act together!

To be honest, this design is basically a beefed up version of the Procyon Quad with not much to show for it. Also, the relatively short range of its weapons and the lack of a turret/main gun on a quad design makes me nervous.

What I would do, is drop the speed to 6/9, giving it a 120 engine, giving you 500kg more to play with, then I would pack the design with as many SRMs as possible. So like I would strip out all of the weapons and just give it 3x SRM5s with 10 shots each (comes out to 5000kg). You'd probably have to shave the armor down a bit for that. That's just me though
