Is this an Omni?
That is, you made as cheap and as fast as possible OmniHover just for mechanized BA?

Yeah there’s this super light BA transport in the Wolf Pack novel that has never received stats. The cheapest way to make it work is to omnify it as a cheat to avoid an infantry compartment

The image of BA hurtling along at 900 kph is rather amazing

Wait.
What the hell.
900 KPH?
HOW

EDIT How much damage that does if it rams something?

That's got some pace!

"Express delivery!"
"That's Lieutenant Faceplant to you, Corporal!"

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

"Hmm, I wonder if I can turn this into a MM map."
