Yesterday while driving to work, I came up with several new versions of the Griffin to go with my mod of the Shadow Hawk I had previously developed, and now I have a new version of the Wolverine to complete the classic 55 trio. Here they are:

First, a refit of the standard GRF-1N Griffin:

Code: [Select]
GRF-1Nfr Griffin (field refit)
Mass: 55 tons
Internal Structure: 5.5 tons
Engine: CoreTek 275 - 15.5 tons
   Walk MP: 5
   Run MP: 8
   Jump MP: 5
Heat Sinks: 10(20) - 0 tons
Gyro: 3 tons
Cockpit: 3 tons
Armor Factor: 161 - 9 tons (ferro)
   H: 3/9
   CT(R): 18/20(8)
   R/LT(R): 13/20(6)
   R/LA: 9/16
   R/LL: 13/20
Weapons and Equipment:
   ER PPC - RA - 3 crits - 7 tons
   LRM-15 - RT - 3 crits - 7 tons
   Ammo(LRM)16 - RT - 2 crits - 2 tons
   CASE - RT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jet - CT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jets - RT - 2 crits - 1 ton
   Jump Jets - LT - 2 crits - 1 ton

Next, a refit of the GRF-1S Griffin:


Code: [Select]
GRF-3S Griffin
Mass: 55 tons
Internal Structure: Endo-Steel - 3 tons
Engine: CoreTek 275 - 15.5 tons
   Walk MP: 5
   Run MP: 8
   Jump MP: 5
Heat Sinks: 10(20) - 0 tons
Gyro: 3 tons
Cockpit: 3 tons
Armor Factor: 152 - 8.5 tons (ferro)
   H: 3/9
   CT(R): 18/20(7)
   R/LT(R): 13/20(6)
   R/LA: 9/14
   R/LL: 13/18
Weapons and Equipment:
   ER PPC - RA - 3 crits - 7 tons
   Medium Laser - RA - 1 crit - 1 ton
   Medium Laser - LA - 1 crit - 1 ton
   LRM-15 - LT - 3 crits - 7 tons
   Artemis IV FCS - RT - 1 crit - 1 ton
   Ammo(LRM)16 - LT - 2 crits - 2 tons
   CASE - LT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jet - CT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jets - RT - 2 crits - 1 ton
   Jump Jets - LT - 2 crits - 1 ton

For my third and final Griffin, the GRF-3TGS:

Code: [Select]
GRF-3TGS Griffin (Throne Guard Special)
Mass: 55 tons
Internal Structure: Endo-Steel - 3 tons
Engine: CoreTek 275XL - 8 tons
   Walk MP: 5
   Run MP: 8
   Jump MP: 5
Heat Sinks: 12(24) - 2 tons
Gyro: 3 tons
Cockpit: 3 tons
Armor Factor: 168 - 10.5 tons
   H: 3/9
   CT(R): 18/23(8)
   R/LT(R): 13/20(6)
   R/LA: 9/18
   R/LL: 13/20
Weapons and Equipment:
   Large Pulse Laser - RA - 2 crits - 7 tons
   Medium Pulse Laser - RA - 1 crit - 2 tons
   Small Pulse Laser - RA - 1 crit - 1 ton
   Machine Gun - RA - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Medium Pulse Laser - LA - 1 crit - 2 tons
   Small Pulse Laser - LA - 1 crit - 1 ton
   Machine Gun - LA - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   SRM-6 - RT - 2 crits - 3 tons
   SRM-6 - LT - 2 crits - 3 tons
   Ammo(SRM)30 - LT - 2 crits - 2 tons
   Ammo(MG)100 - LT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   CASE - LT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jet - CT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jets - RT - 2 crits - 1 ton
   Jump Jets - LT - 2 crits - 1 ton

That last I see as the model used by the guards on either side of the Steiner throne, and one ton of SRM ammo should be fragmentation.

And upgraded Wolverine:

   Walk MP: 5

   H: 3/8
   CT(R): 18/20(8)
   R/LT(R): 13/20(6)

   Ammo(LB)20 - RT - 2 crits - 2 tons
   CASE - RT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jet - CT - 1 crit - 0.5 tons
   Jump Jets - RL - 2 crits - 1 ton
   Jump Jets - LL - 2 crits - 1 ton

And my Shadow Hawk:


Code: [Select]
SHD-5H Shadow Hawk
Mass: 55 tons
Internal Structure: Endo-Steel - 3 tons
Engine: CoreTek 275XL - 8 tons
   Walk MP: 5
   Run MP: 8
   Jump MP: 5
Heat Sinks: 10(20) - 0 tons
Gyro: 3 tons
Cockpit: 3 tons
Armor Factor: 160 - 10 tons
   H: 3/9
   CT(R): 18/23(8)
   R/LT(R): 13/20(6)
   R/LA: 9/16
   R/LL: 13/18
Weapons and Equipment:
   Medium Laser - RA - 1 crit - 1 ton

   Jump Jets - RL - 1 crit - 0.5 tons

Javelin, House Davion's favorite backstabber. Now with more battlefield endurance, if less maximum damage.

Equipment  Loc

And the Fire Javelin. Maxed armour, and bigger guns. I know that a lot of people disparage the MPL, but there are advantages, especially for a mech that is going to be jumping behind people.

Code: [Select]
Javelin JVN-15F 'Fire Javelin'
Base Tech Level: Standard (IS)

Speaking of backstabbers, the spider from 3050 is pretty good. But here's a quick swap for the -5k. It still isn't a good mech, but since it's a specialist machine I figure it would get less attention. Losing the ammo means it's no longer an active deathtrap, just mostly one.

Code: [Select]
Spider SDR-9K
Base Tech Level: Standard (IS)

Head                        3      6   
Center Torso               10      8   
Center Torso (rear)                4

Weapons            Loc  Heat 
------------------------------
Medium Laser        CT    3   
Small Pulse Laser   LA    2   
Small Pulse Laser   RA    2   

And for more pulse laser, here's the Marik gunboat Cicada, now kitted out as a light mech hunter with it's old side of infantry killing. It's fast enough to get the pulse laser to pulse range, has a big enough hit to get through most 3025 light mech armour in one go, and had some extra protection slathered on.

You'd think that fragmentation ammo would be the second to last kind you'd want in the same room as the Archon.

You're probably correct...better if it were tear gas instead...

And here's a new-built. For all people disparage the LPL, they genuinely are better than the 4 M Lasers they replace. Worth giving up all the potential that could be done with that weight? Maybe not, but they do give it some real in close firepower. Plus acknowledging new toy syndrome, and it's nice to be able to run in close and still have good to-hit numbers.

yep
easiest way to improve stuff early on was
a narc launcher on one or two fast mechs/vehicles

easier than remodeling multiple mechs to use Artemis

I agree. Conditionally. I have no qualms kicking the favorite faction in the crotch--repeatedly. But the fact of the matter is, I prefer to kick EVERYBODY in the crotch as often as possible, like a game of whack a mole, only here's it's whack a crotch. Because we're playing in a wargame universe, and if you're NOT getting kicked in the crotch (repeatedly), then you're not in the ****** game.

A simple refit on the 9-M Awesome. Rip out the Streaks and ammunition, and replace with two medium pulse and another small pulse.

Kind of feel the same about the Marauder 5D. Rip out the Streak, ammo, and CASE to put in three more heat sinks.
