Which units were the MW:DA units representing? The natty metallic base, with various shades of green trim?

Good question. It would have to be one of the desant forces that were depicted in MWDA... so reinforced Turkina Keshik/Alpha Galaxy, Delta Galaxy or Zeta Galaxy.

Hanging out? No, it was determined when Elizabeth, Carl, Daniel, and Lisa put it all together.  We have merely been awaiting the acknowledgement we ourselves have always known.

Zeta Galaxy's traditional colors are green and gray, so it wouldn't surprise me if that was the scheme being represented with the green/metal.

Reading Shattered Fortress seems to suggest that the Falcons got Arc Royal's facotries pretty much intact; there's no mention of their being attacked/destroyed that I can find. Based on that, what toys do you think would be the most fun addtions to the Falcon forces?

I was thinking that myself. It's a tough little beggar and is surprisingly mobile. The weapons are a bit all over the shop, but that's more of the Ursus legacy.

On another front, while I don't play much Aerotech, the Isegrem looks like it'd be a nice addtion

Don't get me wrong, I love the Viking IIC more every time I use it, but it's way too slow to be a proper Falcon 'Mech. Maybe if it had jump jets...


Or Cuchulainn BA - imagine a Cuchulainn(mixed tech)?

...isn't the Cuchulainn already mixtech?

Imagines Trial.

Viking IIC vs Viking IIC.

All ammunition is expended.

Physical attacks initiated.

Both Mechs end up flailing on the ground unable to get up due to their stubby arms.
