We've got the 5/8 WIGE movement.  If we dump all those chemical lasers, and ammo, can we squeeze in enough heat sinks for a cERmlas?   >:D
I'm rarely right... Except when I am.  ---  Idle question.  What is the BV2 of dread?
Apollo's Law- if it needs Clan tech to make it useable, It doesn't deserve those resources in the first place.
Sure it isn't the most practical 'mech ever designed, but it's a hundred ton axe-murderer. If loving that is wrong I don't wanna be right.

You may have 3 ER Med Lasers moving at 5/8 if you're willing to accept a slight drop in total armor.

This thing is plenty tough to start with....

Protomechs.  Heads and arms are neat and all, but you dont really need them...
