Hey, Gio, good to see you around!

And no, not as far as I can tell.

Should we shake loose some of those ones that have been 'claimed' for a while now?

Take my Locusts. I would like to do them, but currently I don't see it happening. :(

I've got a refurbished Ryoken II article ready to go up. When's a good time?

Turns out I already did the Mercury, so if nobody else has something...sure!

I'd like to request next week's slot for a requested Avalanche article. Perhaps a deadline will encourage me to get it out the door.

Making a slot request for the distant FUTURE ... future ... future. Should hopefully have a requested Warwolf article done for December 6th.

Well inspiration struck me for a brief instant, so I have a Locust article that can be placed anytime.

Unfortunately, inspiration left me before the subject of the IIc could come up...

Hello,  I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but here goes.

Where to I find the old Articles ?
I saw in the list that there was a GrassHopper article done in 2004 & again in 2010.
But this board only goes back to 2011 in looks like.

I'm wondering if anyone has covered the 4R model I found on the MUL.
Looks like its an SLDF original prototype model from the Amaris War ?

You need to ask the original authors to repost them.

In this case, no, the Grasshopper GHR-4R wasn't covered.  It's listed on the old MUL beta name list but there's no stats for it anywhere that I know of and the variant designation was invented by the MUL Team for the reference on page 150 of TRO3039.  I didn't mention it by name (didn't even know about the designation) but the fact that the 5H didn't match the prototype variant, whatever it was, was touched on at one point.

I can repost the original article if you want.

Can I put in a request to cover the Gùn?  I'm starting to really appreciate the little bugger, and writing an article is the best way to figure out all the ins and outs.

Thanks Moonsword, no, if the info isn't there its not necessary.  Just went looking & couldn't find anything.
Was just curious what that unit was, says it had stealth systems originally, sounds like maybe it was something with ECM &/or maybe NullSig/ChameleonLP, possibly DHS too just to cancel the heat issues if I had to guess.
I like the 4R designator that you guys came up with btw, it matches the trends.

Sure, go ahead.  I need to scrape the caked on dust off the front page of the thread sometime.

And shoot me a PM if you've got any questions on what I was thinking at the time I designed it.

Oh, so you're the one I need to beat up for ruining it all... >:/!

Seriously, though, that was a great job representing my baby.  Of the four units I designed in the various TRO3145 volumes and the others for NTNU, I think the Gun might just be my favorite.

Would you like to go first?  If there's no answer by midnight (EST) tonight, I'll go ahead and post anyway.

In the spirit of better begging forgiveness than asking permission, or squabbling about it (or worse, being overly polite to each other) until no article at all gets posted, the Gùn is up.
