Unless said King Crab mounts twin Gauss Rifles. Add in a LL and an LRM 15, and the Awesome might be in a little trouble.
I'll keep that in mind for when the Com Guards arrive. But since the standard version does not have gauss rifles, and barring a major redesign to go for an XL engine, or Double Heat Sinks, if it did mount gauss, their extra ton of weight would leave them unable to mount ammo, I am less worried. Especially since that LRM rack has only 8 shots too. It's conceivable the gauss variant will show of course, but I still like my chances (since I can easily crank 90 plus KPH out of a modded Awesome, hitting me is easier said than done!)

Even if its not technically an assault.
I'm all for the Hoppa, though more so when level 2 tech arrives. It's woefully undergunned, especially at range, but man does it have a nice mix of armor, mobility and heat management!
(once tech arrives to allow it to carry 2 ER L.Lasers, and double heat sinks, then it gets very interesting, very fast)
