Lol, I kept hoping they would resurrect the Black Eagle . . . because, Eagle.

I remember I think that time ago I commented, making a rebuild of the Black Eagle would be nice, I would conform with doing union, vulture and maybe something evolved from this last one to make a light pws but that in the future with having union, Vampire modernized and Mule We would already be fine to start progressing both military logistics and expanding trade capabilities

I would not rule out that Fontaine throws himself headfirst on those worlds of Tamarind that the Wolves took from them, and that would already be his third consecutive war / military offensive, his troops should in any universe exhausted and at the limit of their possibilities. If that were to happen, I do not see how the Marian Hegemony could not recover the lost worlds

The Wolves took one Tamarind-Abbey world. I believe the sentiment from the fluff on it is that they're welcome to keep it; it was one of those border-system basket-cases full of troublemakers.

Seeing what came out in the last Rec Guide I say that hopefully some variant of Scorpion or Spider but nothing else.
As for Fluff, we are still the mockery of the writers

Didn't you guys just get some nice new Centurion MilitiaMechs in Tech Readout: Irregulars that you can use to fill out your second-line forces and are exporting for extra money?

I mean, I get wanting all the new toys.  I do - I check each one of these for mentions of Niops.  But your Periphery faction not getting one of the shiny new toys doesn't mean it's the mockery of the writers.

You see it as mockery, not we. Don't pull the rest of the Marian fandom into this thing you've got going.

Adacas has a point when so much writing about the Hegemony is using them as convenient designated villains and whipping boys for whatever neighbouring hero that's on the current agenda.

They're smaller than everybody else in the neighborhood, but have never shown any inclination that they know how to act like it. How did you *think* they were going to act, like Ghost Bears?

We go by parts my comments on the Scorpion and the Spider was to see if we received it in the list of the MUL as options for the MHAF.

As for the Centurion Militiamech if it is nice for militias and perhaps basic trainer but it is not a mech that can fight as equals in an open war, except as a guerrilla and for a short time and only if you ask me the H3H version, the rest in modern warfare is an expensive coffin.
It is a good industry mech / militia mech but it is not a mech, apart from that it was produced during the time that the Republic did not want excess mechs to be produced and it sold well at the time.

The thing about the writers is because again in the fluff we appear as the useless bad guy who trips over his shoes and is run off the planet by a mechwarrior and a gang of raggedy men, I mean 3/3 stories we are the bad and useless of the neighborhood, that goes without saying that one of the stories seems that they wrote it without having any idea of what the hegemony is, its military organization or its punishment system
