It can probably carry about 10-15% more tonnage than it weighs. When you build something like a walking tank... You over engineer all the components to take stress, heat, impact, etc... So you should comfortably be able to carry additional weight in the form of ammo or exterior weapons. That pretty much goes for everything except maybe light chassis.

There is no Dire Wolf so the Atlas wins by default, but I would rather have the old Battlemaster 1D if its all the same to you.
Well there is no beating the Atlas' style and optics, if I am allowed to modify my Dire Wolf though .. ah well not realy a choice then. Quineg?
May I have a Thunder Stallion please *eg*

All in all, the daishi has very powerful tech and it is a powerhouse on the fiel, and this is why I choose it

and for a clann assault, its gotta be a kodiak or the 100T version of the timber wolf muahahahaha
atlas has its place in history, and is still a viable unit, but the daishi or dire wolf, is just fugly, and most of its builds were boats.
my prefered loadouts have ppcs or large lasers for reach, and then some heavy lbx or uac 20s with some srms to round out the up close punch.
ps to all the atlas haters, eventually the atlas gets a full tech makeover into the atlas II when the lostech is found, which can go toe to toe with anything the clans have and win, but thats a late 31st early 32nd century setup using clan weapons omni mounts and all that.

And the Atlas isn't?

That's a Warhawk/Masakari you're punching. It's only 85 tonnes
I wonder why everyone is doing their comparison based on MW4, where mech variants were not very accurate compared to their original BT versions and you could put pretty much any weapons on them. In that game Dire Wolf was inferior because it was just easier to hit. In BT Clan Tech is in so many ways ahead of IS tech that most of the time Dire Wolf would pound an Atlas down to ground in seconds. And during the Clan Invasion the Clans actually kick some major butt before losing anything. And they definitely don't lose because of inferior mech design, but because of arrogance and incapability to adapt and use "dirty tactics" instead of warrior code.
Don't get me wrong, Atlas is a magnificent and iconic looking mech, and in many situations in the hands of a good pilot it could take out a Dire Wolf. But there's a reason IS people named Dire Wolf "Daishi" or "The Great Death". It's simply superior overall. It's just one of the most kick *** assault's you could get your hands on. And don't give me that "there are other great clan assault mechs" -crap, because you all know the greatest and brightest of Clan warriors piloted a Dire Wolf. It's a bit like Timber Wolf, Summoner and Hellbringer; iconic, superior mechs that were piloted by only those who understood their greatness and could put their whole arsenal to use.
So, in conclusion: Daishi is my choice, but I love Atlas too, because IT'S JUST GOT SOME BALLS!
