  • Miss Chitty scoffs at your clan overlords
Congratulations, you've acquired a large force of the ever reliable and cost effective Scorpion tank for the front line forces of your planetary militia or regional defense force. You can now stride forward into battle confident that you will have flexible and capable armored forces supporting your every military endeavor.

However, an army does not achieve victory purely through the strength of its guns alone. As your trusted supplier of quality military hardware since 2815, Quickcell is proud to offer you our line of Scorpion auxiliary vehicles. Based on the ever popular Scorpion chassis, these vehicles will offer you a broad range of supplemental capabilities while you enjoy the benefits of parts commonality with your main line Scorpion tanks, allowing all of your vehicles to enjoy the proven reliability you've come to expect from Quickcell while at the same time reducing your own out of pocket costs by limiting the variety of components necessary to keep your entire force functioning. Whether your needs are for a capable command vehicle to direct your forces, engineering equipment for defense or clearing out enemy fortifications, or the flexible multifunction support vehicle* to keep your troops both fed and in fighting trim, you can count on Quickcell to have the vehicle you need at the price you can afford.

*Quickcell claims no responsibility for mishaps that occur due to crew mishandling materials in the shared cargo bay of the support vehicle, and insists that the so-called Mendham Marinara Mishap was clearly the result of poorly trained personnel, as any reasonably trained crewmen would have been able to tell the difference between marinara sauce and whole blood.

Love the trailer!  The C2 Scorpion actually has one ton too many Communications Equipment (1 comes free with the Controls, so you only need to install 6 to get the benefits of 7).  And the best part is, a ton of armor costs the exact same as the ton of Comms gear.

Love that combined MASH and Field Kitchen.

"You're sure this is pork, right? Only the surgeon took off Dave's leg yesterday, and suddenly we're eating meat again ..."
"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.

A belated thumbs up for these!  Will probably grab a few of these when generating stats for the support elements.   :thumbsup:

Only need a mine clearance vehicle, at least I didn't see one.

Since when? Basic comm set in vehicle controls is not a 1-ton comm set, unless something has changed.

Surprised you didn't make the M728 CEV or even the upgraded version, the M728A1.

The CEV is twice the weight of a Scorpion.  A bulldozer + Thumper Cannon simply would not fit on the chassis to any reasonable extent.

It doesn't have to be fast... after all a dozer blade attached on the rear with a Front mounted Thumper and a ton of ammo on a 2/3 speedster isn't going anywhere fast, but... load it up on a flatbed trailer... problem solved!

Somehow I didn't think of a mine clearance vehicle.

Changing the engine is more work than quickcell wants to do with it.  ;D

A low mass alternative to the giant demolition gun might be a whole bunch of rockets.

A Thumper Cannon is only 10 tons... it would totally fit.

The Jagdscorpion - hull-mounted UAC-5, with modular armour on the front? Face it, 20 rounds is more than enough.
