"Osteon Q" Hardened armor
« on: 20 July 2013, 13:02:12 »

You can't change the armor type or amount on an OmniMech chassis. So this wouldn't be an Osteon. A fun custom maybe, but not an Osteon.

Your point being?

It's an "Osteon" because it's based on a discussion on whether FL or hardened is better, and based on the Osteon's weight, speed, and armament (in its first 3 configs).

Honestly, it's not that bad. You even come up with an extra ton after full armor.

I ike to think of it as a society cell who doesn't have the tech to do the whole chassis.  Like, "we got 99 problems, and omnipods are one of them."

Suppose so. But if you're going 100% custom, just make it 100 tons or something. :)

So I assume you are volunteering to pay the millions of C-Bills extra for the 300XL?  ;)

Merchant Caste traders use gold Kerenskys to trade. They don't use money to pay workers or purchase 'Mechs from manufacturers the same way the IS does.

The cost of a Mech is only relevant if the materials are rare of valuable.

Similar things could be said of the USSR. It doesn't mean they didn't destroy their economy with military spending regardless. Resources are resources, whether you barter or use C-Bills, the fact is that something about XL engines makes them take a lot of them.
