Of course if the Garg had mounted ERPPCs instead of LB5s the likely result would have been 4 headless targets...

With a zero gunnery and called shot rules, pretty much any mech but a  Charger should be kicking all kinds of ass.
True. But I do intend to play with this a bit more. Perhaps in a 1v1 setting and see what happens.

I get them backwards, is there where you get to hit half the mech?  B/c if so, then its close to the same gunnery skills if that is all they used- an effective 3 rather than a 1 or 2 gunnery for the full chart
+3 to hit and you can call whether you are aiming high, low, or to the left or right of the target. That +3 could really hurt chances with the SRMs and ER Small Laser, which often put To-Hit at 8 to 10.

Of course if the Garg had mounted ERPPCs instead of LB5s the likely result would have been 4 headless targets...
Yeah, but you aren't going to get the gunnery you want with BV multipliers.

The new 3D render on Anthony’s patreon has changed my mind it’s good now

Maybe the Nova C or D is actually good.  :D
