Happy New Year! I think I’ll resolve to use C3 networks. Any favourites?

Hauptmann D, Banshee 8S, Barghest 4X, BattleMaster 10S2. Typically they just have to accept that something will be throwing a 22 point shell with short range modifiers from 20ish hexes away just to deal with the Banshee and BattleMaster.

The Gladiator 5R has a slave unit. The downside is they don't have alot of units with C3 masters.

Yeah I've noticed that. Mobile interface for MUL doesn't have filtering features, but now that I'm on a computer it looks like the MUL doesn't have any C3M listed for Marian Hegemony. I know it's incomplete, so maybe there's something that makes sense to include...

Maybe the C3M Schreck? Potentially could have bought or salvaged some.

Well, the Hegemony barely makes 'Mechs, let alone cutting edge ones with an advanced teamwork targeting system that accommodates either 4/12 or 6 units.

Leximon is an ATC plant but it supplies the Lothario forces, it is likely that the Factory of Addhara will also manufacture it although we do not have confirmation.

Curious... How would you assign these?

I want to MechInf a Century using Tracked APCs: 6x SRM and 4x Standard. Or should I run Hover versions, where 6x SRM, 3x Standard and a single Sensor?

If you're trying to mechanize a foot Century using the squad-sized APCs, don't you need a Standard APC for each squad? I thought the fancy APC variants got their cool stuff by sacrificing the cargo bay.

Or instead of Sarna, I'll look at an actual source, such as RS 3039.

...huh. You're right on the hover, but the Tracked versions all lose their cargo for the extra stuff. My advice would be to go with your plan on the hover force, but for a tracked Century, go with platoons and Heavy APCs. You can take a foot Century, four of the up-gunned Tracked Heavy APCs of your chosen flavor, and a single light tank of your choice to round out the vee Century. The hover group would make an excellent patrol/recon/fast reaction force, while the tracked guys are heavy assault troops, easily capable of fighting alongside(or against) mechs and tanks.

More on this...

Wanting to make an Ordo Vigilis Century... specifically Operationes Abscondites ( Covert Operations ), should I make a Maniple with attached BA Security backup?

Think PBI MPs... beast equipped? ( Arcturan Razorcats anyone? ) like K-9 units.

but for a tracked Century, go with platoons and Heavy APCs. You can take a foot Century, four of the up-gunned Tracked Heavy APCs of your chosen flavor, and a single light tank of your choice to round out the vee Century.

Running 3 LRM Heavy Tracked APCs, a MG version and a single Galleon-200(RL) for support.

In other words, 12 tons of space, 5-5/8+ movers, 3-LRM5, 1-SRM4, 2-RL20, 4-RL10, 14-MGs...  >:D

Thoughts?

Now how much weight is the Foot vs. Jump? Isn't 1 per 10 Troopers like the rest? So 10 for Foot and 5 for Jump?

I use the Galleon (RL) in my own Periphery Campaign (alibet with "modern" rockets). It's surprisingly nasty all things considered.

Quote
For covert ops, I would take nothing heavier than a sneak suit for anyone, and any scenario that involves them in a non-AToW-scale fight should end with an officer getting fed to lions for gross misuse of critical resources. They really don't belong on a TW-scale battlefield except in true emergencies, when there literally are no other infantry you could throw at the problem.

When using platoons, same as normal. You use the generic Clan platoons(25 troopers) as sub-platoons, and they're 3 tons for foot and 4 for jump.

So four 25-Trooper platoons per MH? And I can fit 2.5 tons per  Hvy APC?

They still weigh three tons apiece, but yes. The full stats are in Total War, mass included.
