That might be a stretch.  I've got like, four quizzes next week that desperately need some study time.

Good ol' school. Just finished up last August, know exactly how you feel.

Empyrus, do you think you could be ready for the 5th?

I'll take the hammerhands if no one wants it and the 12th is perfect for the triple wammy.

Add the Duan Gung and Koshi (the BattleMech, not the Mist Lynx) to my reservations, going to make a Sling/Duan Gung/Koshi triple feature some day.

And now, back to writing about the Sha Yu. What a contradictory 'Mech...

Right, i have a pretty much final version of the Sha Yu article ready. It ended up being faster to write than i expected. But then, my mood was right and no one was interrupting or anything.

Would someone be willing to check it out quickly, for spelling, grammar and factual errors? Criticism and suggestions are welcome, especially regarding the SYU-6B variant because it is something i can't really figure out.

I'm putting a request for the Blood Reaper. The request list is awfully short (lol) with only 5 'Mechs.
Besides, something about the 'Mech bothers me.

I'll do the Blood Reaper.

Just curious, what is it about the 'Mech that bothers you? Anything in particular? Or just more of a "why do we have this?" kind of thing?

What bothers me about the Blood Reaper? That it is, that it flies under the radar so to speak, it just pops up in mind occasionally. It is just one of those things that get stuck in mind.
And i guess I'm curious about it.

Its a good, solid mech, if a little bit boring, but its dependable, and it's got one HELL of a slap if you're willing to risk the heat spikes.

Another request: The Arctic Cheetah/Hankyu.

I've got enough work in covering the Sling, Duan Gung and Koshi... but strictly speaking the Arctic Cheetah is a related design, part of the Sling-family, as it was made as an improvement to the Mist Lynx. (The Mist Lynx and Hellion, also part of the family, are covered already.) Not saying it needs to be covered at the same time.

I will be posting the MotW Sha Yu in a couple of minutes... as it will be Friday here then. May be a bit early for some but i doubt there are objections.

EDIT It is done.

I've also got a Marauder IIC article ready to go when ever if needed. I'll be throwing a WSOTM at the board later as well.

By the way, the Warship write-ups I'm putting out won't be following a specific schedule or anything.
If anyone else wants to post their own Warship stuff at the same time as me, seriously, go ahead.

So is there a new article for this week or are we taking the week off?

Yeah, hella-busy work day meant I couldn't post this any earlier. Then formatting and making final edits on that monster of a write-up delayed things even more.

Can't speak for TheEagle, but marauder is banned for the time being. He did send me his write-up on the Thug though so I'm gonna post that as well.

I got side-tracked by school, but I'm doing a final review & edit of the Charger article right now.  It'll be up momentarily.
