Jump jets on an Atlas?

Silly question I know but it could be fun Imagine the DFA with a 100 ton mech squishing a jenner

Thankfully i dont think there are any canon variants that come with jump jets.

The warlord is an 80 ton mech based off the battlemaster design, not the atlas.

Check the mechlab in MWxx and get back to me

80-ton design, based on the Battlemaster.
I have "people". :-P
The one you are referring to is a mektek version and not canon.

AS7-K3 - A modification of the K2, the K3 removed the two Streak SRM-6 launchers and replaced them with three jump jets and a Streak SRM-4 launcher, giving the AS7-K3 incredible maneuverability. BV (1.0) = 1,952, BV (2.0) = 2,346

Marauder II have jump jets though... if you wanted another assault that was capable - slow though at 3...

I 'think' it was added long after the MC2 appearance of an Atlas with JJs. Not really sure though. Time does not appear to limit canon and I think that is both a blessing and a curse. You may think you know everything and before you know it, suddenly appears a new variant and changes the whole picture. On the other hand this may expand your options and make things just a little more interesting.
P.S. As for 3049, MC2 was during the FedCom civil war, so that would push it more towards 3060 rather than 3050. Seems to be out of reach for now.

I'm going by Heavy Metal Pro's notes... the design is listed as being in the TRO I listed, so that'll be the latest it's available, I think, so I think you'll likewise be post-3060 since it's not in that update either.
Either way, a long way off, as you say.
Jump assaults are lumbering things anyhow... better off with a jump-capable heavy IMO...
