So...is it too late for stragglers?
Sunrise is Coming.

All Hail First Prince Melissa Davion, the Patron Saint of the Regimental Combat Team, who cowed Dainmar Liao, created the Model Army, and rescued Robinson!  May her light ever guide the sons of the Suns, May our daughters ever endeavour to emulate her!

That the problem with Merc's sometime you just can't get what/recruit what you want.   But to quote the Rolling Stones "But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need"

Not saying the Lightning and Corsair aren't up to the tasks they were assigned to, but a little bit of more gusto might be in order.

There's actually a whole lot of "get what you want" in this regiment.  :P
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Don't know where we are going, but no sense being late...
And before anyone makes any jokes, on behalf of Team Porcupine I'd like to point out that we're always exactly where we intend to be at any given point in time.

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo

Well at least half of your unit can cover it's own slow ass. Mine barely has enough covering fire, were more like waddling fire than covering. Guess that's your job, covering our rear flank.

The UrbanMechs cover the rear flank; the Highlander and the Marauder II ambush and brutalize anyone who tries to get to the UrbanMechs. There's a whole dramatic sequence acted out well in advance, when one of the UrbanMechs announces "Say hello to my little friend!" as the Marauder II lands on the striker that was expecting an easy kill.

That's why me and Mw. Zhao will provide the savage PPC fire while the Lt. and Mw. LeAnn provide the roundhouse effect of Gauss rifling to the finest.

Sure they got PPC fire of their own, but in a nutshell, LeAnn would probably get first shot off, followed by the Lt. Of course, once Mw. Zhao and me will get there, things will change quickly enough.

Now this is well known, Mw. Phi signing off.

Very true, but not many heavy fighters, which is what he wanted

Not wanted, I mean if we're supposed to be the Shock Team, shouldn't we have, well a Shock and Awe aero flight?

Can't believe I'm just seeing this now!

Sergeant Jinigo "Dragon" Khan in a custom Awesome designated the AWS-9Z. Take one AWS-9Q, pull a PPC and three DHS, add 10 MLs.

That’s some real necromancy there Dragon Khan. However IIRC their was a ban on any more assault mechs in the regiment because we had too many.

Also why would you ruin a perfectly good Awesome like that?

Better close range firepower and able to run and sling three PPCs all day. Okay, if there is a ban on Assaults, then I'll take a Warhammer instead. WHM-6D, DHS added in place of SHS, shave a few off, replace PPCs with ER PPCs and add four MLs.
