Light: "(Fire)Javelin" JVN-10F,
Medium: "Wolverine" WVR-6M,
Heavy: "Catapult" any,
Assault: "Stalker" STK-3F
Absolute Fav.: "Catapult"
Overall I seem to be drawn to energy based mechs, because they seem to be very stable in the TT.
Save the Cat, when I go to use Cats I usally take to of them an' have fun rolling a helllotofdice.
But lately I've discovered an odd fun hearing autocannons roar...
Maybe I'll run a JaegerMech asap.

Excellent speed, good armor, nice punch [for a light mech]
Medium - WVR-6M Wolverine
The ultimate mech IMHO. good Speed (I just love 5/8/5), good armor, nice weapon mix, ample heat sinks. In one word ENDURANCE.
If this mech is encountered in semi-rough terrain it can hold the bay even against considerable odds. Slower mechs cannot catch it, faster mechs are outgunned/outarmored.
Heavy - TDR-5S Thunderbolt
The optimal mercenary mech. Can operate adequately in multiple roles (Fire support, assault, anti mech, anti infantry) and has a gun for all ranges (L-Laser and LRM15 for long range + running= no excess heat). Moderatly fast, good armored, balanced weaponary and heatsinks.
Assault - ???
I allways disliked assault machines. Slow and sluggish. They do not require much skill.
If I am forced to name one, I would tend to name the ZEU-5S Zeus for much the same reasons than the Thunderbolt, but being considerably heavier it offers less capabilities.
