Garuda
« on: 16 January 2023, 02:39:57 »
A protomech designed to hunt down concealed infantry with its light probe, and with plentifully supplied twin AP Gauss, decimate them. For heavier armored opposition, be that BAs or even 'Mechs, it comes with an ERML set over one shoulder. Four jump jets arrayed similarly to stub-wings, if not quite a true partial wing, should allow it to work its way through, around, and above, urban build-up or other terrain.

Why not 5 JJs? It should only cost you 6 APGR rounds, I think?

I tend to view 20 rounds for the APGauss as the bare minimum, per each APGauss carried. Mainly as I try to avoid building Protos without enough speed to get into that range bracket against most enemies. Or in short, once I'm in range, the trigger stays held down turn after turn. I've also never quite been convinced that 5 jump is really needed. 3,4, and 6, oh yes, I love those jump numbers. But for some reason I never seem to need exactly five with the exception of a six-range jumper that occasionally wants to jump 'short', but otherwise is always maxing its jumps.
