The CC is producing more FRB-3Es based on pages 28 and 29 of Field Manual 3145 and  pages 101 of Jihad Final Reckoning.  That's why the FRB-3E isn't unique in the Early Republic and beyond.  Did we get updates to all of the TRO 3039 mechs in the Rec Guides other then things like the Kintaro? I could see a Champion or maybe a new design based on the Thunderbolt since we seem to have a ton of those...

The DA -3Es are refits of the primitives produced during the Jihad according to a source that i will not name to avoid some issues. I also tought they were new mechs.
Oh my brother, with your courage we can conquer,
In your sword I put my trust that you will honor
I will be the higher ground should you concede it
And my body be your shield if you should need it.

The Gallant would be right up the Marian Legions' alley. It's cheap, tough, and easily produced by anyone with a tech level slightly above introtech, or use the original version for yon introtech powers. Call it the Scutum or something like that. The Gallant is a mobile brick
with nothing but projectile weapons. That thing has 180% more armor then a Demolisher and its ten tons lighter!

There is one Greko/Roman named mech that has not been in production since the dawn of mechs. The Bellerophon, it's on the lower end of heavies. It could be a good candidate for an upgraded unique Marain mech.

We should really send a delegation to Alaric, proposing a treaty of friendship and mutual cooperation against the FWL. One of the minor terms should include us kindly offering to buy the Doloire and its associated production lines and ship everything to a secure Marian planet.

I and II Legios with Doloire centuries. We finally have a hard counter to the Canopians' Blood Asps.

I don't think Alaric destroyed Andie for going on a diplomatic mission, if it was possible to trade with the Wolf Empire for the Galleon C there must be some conversation at least with the people of Othar.
I estimate that if it were a delegation they would tell you to leave your letter there, the IlClan will respond in due course (which could be in a month, a year, ten or never).

.   Mention to the Hegemony the Harraser to the Canopians so as not to feel less and intimidated gave them the Spartan Clan that Capela manufactures

I was a little disappointed that we didn't get the Proliferation Cycle mechs in there as well. The Harasser is nice however.

Totally if we add to this the J.E Hoover TAG and the Marauder and other BA with Light TAG we are well covered with observers to mark for Artillery

I have seen it, thank you for marking its incorporation, I was hoping to also add the 7SF but for that we will have to wait a little longer.

And thanks for the response to the greeting

Happy Sol Invictus!!

Here’s a topical question: do you think the Festival of the Unconquered Sun is celebrated on December 21/22 (or whenever the Terran Winter Solstice has moved to by ‘now’ in BT), or is it celebrated on the local Winter Solstice of each world?  The latter makes more sense to me, not only because it makes more sense to not end up celebrating a winter festival during what might be local summer, but also because it allows a clear break with Christmas and keeps the two faiths from arguin about whose holiday it is.
Sunrise is Coming.

All Hail First Prince Melissa Davion, the Patron Saint of the Regimental Combat Team, who cowed Dainmar Liao, created the Model Army, and rescued Robinson!  May her light ever guide the sons of the Suns, May our daughters ever endeavour to emulate her!

In the Hegemony I calculate that it is celebrated when it is Sol Invictus in Nova Roma, the Capital of Alphard officially, then I calculate that each world will have its own Sol Invictus xz

I've used it to good effect as a cheap escort for artillery units.

In this context, I could see them being effective for urban militias, corpsec units, or the Morituri.
