Dominator Question
« on: 22 May 2020, 06:38:29 »
Hi. This has come up in one of the threads. What type of Mech is the Dominator.  Is it a OmniMech or standard BattleMech?

The fluff mentions it as a second-line BattleMech. Yet some stats say its config says it biped OmniMech. Which comes off little confusing since seldom mention its a OmniMech at all and does not mention it's pod capacity. OmniMechs are always listed frontline Mechs.

Thank you for your time.

Going by fluff and the naming pattern, it is a second line Mech. Omnimechs are named differently.
The config block is in error.

I will double check with Blain Pardoe, though. Just to be sure. Until someone says differently, assume it is Second Line.

Confirming it is NOT an OmniMech.
