Title: Testing Protomech Designer v0.9 - Hover Sprite variant
Post by: Prince of Darkness on 20 November 2014, 12:36:55
Here's a neat idea- even though the Society made the gilder protomech system, why did they only make one variant, especially what it does (staying at long range) so well?

For this idea, I took arguably the best Sprite variant (the 2) and completely overhauled it, dropping the light TAG, some armor and it's old jump jets for a hover system. Capable of moving 5/8 as a VTOL/WiGE (I cant remember) it only carries a single large laser- a weapon that makes it terrifying against slow omnimechs, allowing it to stay at range assuming faster units carrying LBX ACs don't case it down. Funny enough, that makes the most terrifying enemy the basic Clint IIC or something similar.
