Mostly components, I'd think - Snord got a lot of them too, remember, and as Clan techs, they wouldn't have problems installing and maintaining them. 

Frankly - I think the goons are going to be used to spearhead an assault.  On Terra.  So they'll get the time to patch their stuff up, fill the holes in the regiments, and eliminate the biggest threat to the IS early as suikrede (?  Whatever it is).  And the FC gets all the stuff squirreled away by Blake plus the HPG system.  That's at least - what - a division?

I would imagine what TPTB gets is a world undergoing an unscheduled ice age: a 4SW Comstar would not blink at the idea of nuking Terra itself as a spoil sport move.

In-universe, they're built by the same manufacturer, Cosara Weaponries of Northwind

The extant Enterprise is a Ship in Her Majesty's service

is it just me?  or is there a hint that they Smith and company have a few "gifts" waiting on the WD if they decided to fight the clans?  I wonder how long it would take Blackwell heavy to start limited SL tech production.  They have been dealing with New Valencia all the back in 3007.

Something I've long suspected to be an error in MekHQ has been confirmed.

Refit/Customization times.

They take too long according to this thread.

The example I put on the bug tracker:

I come up with 1890 minute to take a 6R Wolverine to a 6M while MekHQ says 5505 minutes.

120 minutes to replace the AC-5 with a Large Laser
120 minutes to install a new Medium Laser
90 minutes to add armor
120 minutes to remove the AC-5 ammo
180 minutes to add 2 heatsinks

630 minutes * 3 for a class D refit= 1890 minutes total.

CV-65, the Eighth United States Navy vessel to bear the name Enterprise.


Sloop-of-War in the Continental Navy of the American Colonies, 1775. The first American Navy vessel to bear the name Enterprise.

I learned to love the -9FC on the servers . . . mine eventually had a bounty on it, it was just too effective getting crits and TACs as the clean up hitter.

I would love to actually replay some of the Invasion planetary campaigns, I put together a lot of data on Icar . . . four stars of Clan mechs and I think two of Elementals managed to cut their way through a merc mech regiment and a armored brigade to force the IS to surrender.

Nice  :drool:

Any idea how long after that it'll be available in the UK?

Cestus for me out of 3058, with Nightstar right behind it. 

I am still a card carrying member of the ISGRA. 

If your problem isn’t being solved, you don’t have enough Guass Rifles.

Pair of Cestus's backed up with paired Caesars makes for a great
counter to medium/heavy Clan Omnis.  As for the Nightstar that
thing has often proven way more effective, than some of 3058s
more famous Assaults imho.
