I find it interesting that you're bothering with the Harpy at all. IMO 2-Ton Protos just don't have the weight needed for a decent engine. But I guess if you treat them like oversized BAs with more damage absorption, they do their job.

That Gorgon and Centaur look like they'd be decent in a short fight. I like the increased speed on the Gorgon, and the burst damage is pretty good, tho its battlefield longevity has suffered a bit. The Centaur has the same caveat.
