Just finished up MECH-CON last night. My son, who is also a Demo Agent was helping run a free Play Grinder-esque table at MECH-CON, and at the end of the night was gifted a 3D-printed Corsair model by one of the PGI devs.

While yes it's not a crisp, professional model, the best part is knowing that because PGI or their workers printed it I can show it off.

Sir, you have my respect and my contempt.

And oh my, these things are hideous.  Anyone remember which one is the freebie we got for playing back in December?

Anyone remember/play HAWKEN? The Corsair is reminiscent to me of the "recycled trash mech" designs in that game.
That said, I do like that it looks so different from all the rest of the mechs in MWO. A little diversity goes a long way.
I love how detailed the model actually is...

ETA: Also, it almost looks good in that Davion Brigade of Guard scheme...

The BR - most notable 10% Gauss Cooldown, so expect either lot of double LGR and GR or people sacrificing the arm ballistic for a HGR left torso.

That picture makes it look stubby.
Which one is the freeby?

How good are the hit boxes on this thing?  Charger & Hatamoto-Chi had some bad ones.   Fin on the Hatamoto-Chi counted as rear armor for example.  Thus why things are rare or poof gone.

Well, i've gotten used to mine.  I've settled making it a sniper machine. updating larges into ER Larges.  Dumping the secondaries weaponry to make room for more ammo for the gauss rifles, increase engine speed and armor.  So  far it's working better.

I did dabble, found Ultra AC/10s work well with Broadside variant (aka hero).  However, i have alot mechs with twin UAC.

I'm having a lot of fun with my dual LBX-10 and MRM-40 Dieselnurdler myself. "Broadside" is an apt name for what it unleashes.

As a side note, I love the cockpit. Ashtray, clipboard, loose panels, exposed wires, jumper clips... you name it. It really does look like utter junk.
