I come down about the same way on the medium lasers on the Avatar.  I can see the point on the Flamberge, too.  It just annoys me more than on the Avatar for whatever reason.

There's worse ideas out there in terms of fixed equipment (I know people beat on the jump jets on the Summoner and Turkina and such too). I actually like the Avatar's lasers- not only is it never bad to have a couple of spare pew-pews to toss at someone, but they make excellent non-explosive crit padding in a location that otherwise doesn't react well to internal hits.  ^-^

It was Herb's fault. Not sure why the SRMs had to be hard-mounted but I love me some SRMs so I rolled with it.

Honestly, my only disappointment with them was the miniature. I think it's a matter of how the original prototype gets 'cooked down' for the molds, but the SRMs up on the wing are really tiny compared to their chest-mounted neighbors. And if you look at the chest launchers, they're differently-shaped juuuuuust enough to trigger my OCD.  :-[

Of worth to mention: In 3146 the Falcons put Arc-Royal to the torch.  That's a thing that happened.

Ohhhhh yeah, forgot about that one. Yeah, didn't wipe the Kell Hounds off the map entirely, but close at least. If you were living on Arc Royal when the Falcons arrived... well, you weren't living when they left.

A little known fact about Thomas Hogarth is that he's actually the heir to a popular food chain around the Inner Sphere, which contributed to his combat skills.  But only against poultry.
I'm not sure how long you've been around on the forums, though you have a thousand posts. Never take anything JKlantern says seriously unless it's about food.

Running a star of frontline veteran 3150 Falcons (Shrike, Gyrfalcon, Jade Hawk, Eyrie, and Flamberge) along with a support Star of artillery, vehicles, and a Loki II-B on Megamek. Opponent is using regular skill IS tech, randomly selected, 1.5 my BV, using plenty of combined arms. It's heinous.

The Loki II-B just dropped a Long Tom shell into a grove of trees that I saw contained a mechanized infantry platoon and a Panther. Suck it! Well... the damage output screen was FOUR SCREENS long for determining what happened- I caught six infantry platoons, two battle armor squads, the Panther, and a Schrek in the blast, killing all but the Schrek (Panther took an ammo crit).

I've been laughing for five minutes straight. The Hel-B just committed a war crime.  ;D

Similar to a recent request in the FWL thread, I need names for Jade Falcon ships. In this case, I'm looking at two Odysseys, one Tramp, one Comitatus, and one Hunter JumpShips, and one Miraborg DropShip. Canon would be nice but not required, and if noncanon, serious is definitely not required.

Gonna go with:
Odyssey - Gastornis
Odyssey - Void Kiwi
Commie - Crimson Crake
Hunter - Saber Auk
Miraborg - Assimilator of Kerensky's Vision (you probably can guess what the motto is on the ship's name plaque)
Tramp - If it's primarily operated by the merchant caste, then the previous naming suggestion would probably be appropriate.

Star vs. Star fight yesterday in Fairfax between the Falcons (hello) and Vipers (Paul), using the most disgusting bleeding edge tech we could come up with. When the game had to be called, the Vipers were given hegira- but it was CLOSE.

Vipers:

Scylla 3 (KO)
Warhawk H (KO)
Black Python 1 (badly damaged
Crossbow B (crippled)
Phoenix Hawk IIC-8 (KO)

Falcons:

Shrike 2 (crippled)
Loki II-B (KO)
Turkina Z (KO)
Summoner A (KO)
Gyrfalcon 3 (armor damage only)

We agreed that the two cripples were a wash, and the Python- with an engine hit, two shot out jump jets, etc.- would never be able to bring the Gyrfalcon down with its seven-hex jumping every turn.

Bloody as hell. But the cry of the emerald raptor rings victorious!

Turning point of the game: During a base-contact six-Mech fracas, the mostly-healthy Warhawk caused eventually-fatal damage to the Hel, but the Shrike hit it in the head from directly behind with an Ultra/10 shot AND a medium laser. What had been the centerpiece of the Viper pincer attack ended up instead dying suddenly, surprisingly, and (to our amusement) due to my opponent predicting that after the cannon hit 'no way you do that twice'...

Probably a safe bet. You might try asking Camospecs on FB about it.

We could use an Ask Camospecs thread on the forums here. Was trying to track down schemes for the defunct Phi and Omicron Galaxies.

Actually it's an interesting question, whether any Galaxies (or regiments) have made major updates to their look after the last time we looked in at them in detail in the early 3060s. 90 years is a long time, and units have changed their looks before (Davion BoG, for example)... interesting to wonder what different units look like nowadays. Some probably haven't changed a bit (Sword of Light, for example), but others are a big question mark.

Right?

Something else I recently rediscovered that wouldn't help the case: the remains of the original Alpha Galaxy signed on with the Republic. I really cannot see Falcons resurrecting a Galaxy in the same colors as a unit that acknowledged the superiority of any faction that isn't CJF. The fact that Vau came back gives me some hope, but I'm still really doubtful. I'll follow the earlier advice given and message CSO on FB, I think.

And I doubt those iterations of Alpha Galaxy had a colour scheme that matched Alpha Provisional either.
