Role Warfare Standard Mechs for Davion
Posted 07 June 2012 - 06:03 PM
Some ideas to start off:
None of the current light mechs available are really Davion units, though I suppose since we're in '49 we could say the Commando is available in greater numbers then the Jenner and Raven. The Cicada provides the speed you'd want in a scout but can also pack some decent weaponry along with the auto cannons we love.
Cataphract is a natural Davion mech and is also well suited to the attacking role, as it has good maneuverability for its size and mounts a good mix of weapons. The Catapult is a good fire support Mech but relies too much on the LRMs to be the default choice, and I doubt we'd ever get the snake smell out of the Dragons enough to want to make them the base choice.
Centurion beats out the Hunchback here for the fact you have two strong long range weapons vs one very strong short ranged one. I see Cents being good cost effective body guards for commanders or fire support assets, while Hunchbacks are saved for attacks and ambushes on close range maps.
It's hard to tell what we'll really want in the Command role, but right now I'm liking the Stalker more then an Atlas for commander. Atlases are going to be drawing everyones fire first off, something you really DONT want in a command Mech. For assault lances the Atlas can work fine, just not sure if it will always be the best choice for Company commanders.

As for the K2 you are still for the most part a Fire support Mech but just in a different way. Also consider I was talking about defaults here, I'm not sure how long it might take to open up the K2 if access is level based.

I hope that we eventually see a lot of mechs even if they similar to others. The modeling is already so phenomenal who wouldn't want to see as many mechs as possible?

Should not limit choices of mechs to ones that have ties to Davion.
Atlas = tank
Awesome = fire support
