I would still use the Standard PPC then. The pulse lasers in general are bad weapons in the IS, except for highly mobile harasser platforms like Wraith, Venom or Spider.

Again, though, when fighting elementals, and the risk of them getting into the minimum range on that PPC .... I agree, in general combat, the PPC is better, but if you are expecting that Elementals are going to try and get to you, having a couple LPL's in the lance is going to make those crews feel a LOT better ......

And, it isn't an all or nothing issue --- tanks operate in groups, so having one set up for popping toads is going to make a LOT of sense, especially when you are considering the battle from the Officer down point of view.

Here's assassins from Kurita Ryuken-ni and Comstar. The reflection on the Ryuken ASN looks good at tabletop distances...

On a ship now, hoping to have the next printing of all existing ForcePacks available again in August.

Anything on Europe or Australia restocks?

the MUL source pages use the store text at the time of publication. the fourth wave has updated text

"Released as a series of 24 PDF-only documents through 2020 and 2021, many ’Mechs featured in this series will be collected as a single print volume upon its completion."

My Favorite Dumb Thing (TM): pirates raiding poor frontier settlements for whatever poor frontier settlements can produce - doing so in multi-billion CBill jump and drop ships. That can't work economically, but it's such a great setting :D
You and me both on the pirates  :thumbsup:

I will throw one out . . . what official maps would be best?  I think at least 32x32 hexes (square klick nearly) but some terrain feature/features in the center that blocks easy LOS across that center.

Isn't there the Circle of Equals map?

If there has been a decision on contents, it hasn’t been revealed. If you exclude the cover, title page, and credits from each volume, the total page count is 906 for unit writeups and record sheets. Obviously that’s not happening. From there one could probably think of a dozen permutations on different formats and contents

That would be something like three volumes if you wanted to keep each one on a manageable size.

Personally, I'm just hoping to see some corrected volumes that fix the record sheet issues some of them have.

I was thinking that the product description said somethin about it containing select designs. Not sure, can't access upcoming products on main site as drop-down menus don't work on Chrome (or is it just me?). Didn't mean there was public info what exactly the thing would contain.

EDIT oh, wait, i'm a moron, there's a link on another page to that. The drop-down menus should work though...
EDIT 2 err, well, doesn't look like RecGuides are on latest releases or upcoming products pages. Can't recall where the description was, or if my brain made it up.

EDIT3 Ah, MUL's description has this:
"Released as a series of 22 PDF-only documents through the end of 2020 and early 2021, many ’Mechs featured in this series will be collected as a single print volume upon its completion"
Okay, ignoring that this description is evidently old, it merely says "many", which is quite vague.

Kind of what I was thinking.

Yeah, however the Hell's Horses figured it out seems to work well enough.  If the Red Kite lore is accurate, it wouldn't be much more dangerous than having bags of propellant in the short term.

Same, or at least the same amplifiers that Energy Weapons use, though maybe lighter?


 :thumbsup:

That's what I would think. Chem Lasers shouldn't be more dangerous to use on field guns than on other unit types. It's the reloading, and repairs after an ammo explosion, presuming anything is left, that I think would be dangerous.

Doesn't the ChemJet AC/20 on the Demolisher use liquid chemicals?
