Parash Protomech (a what might have been)
« on: 07 December 2021, 20:33:58 »
so by now most of us have probably heard that the Parash was originally meant to be a Protomech, before the art got assigned for use as a 35 ton Battlemech. if you aren't familiar with that, here is the old MotW: [link]

so in rereading it recently, i decided to do a what if... what if it had been kept as a protomech, but retained the mandated speed and recon focus that the mech version got.

this is what i came up with. had to go with a weaker main gun weapon, due to the smaller size and i couldn't preserve the full 7/11 speed, but using a 117 rating engine with a myomer acceleration booster, it is just as mobile.
