Even 'balanced' 'Mechs have a focus - for example people don't think it, but the Nova is primarily armour-based - it is low-set, almost 100% possible armour used, and based around the idea it can take hits while dealing them out.

More like the Kaiyodo Version.
Yeah, I know the mech should get a really proper repaint. It is one of the eldest mechs and a brilliant design (gear wise), so a little honor in a form of a proper non-anime repaint should be the least anyone could make him.

I trust my precision aiming to do heavy damage, even though I might be undergunned.
I trust my piloting skills to keep me out of harms way, rather than pure blind speed.
But when the crap hits the fan, armor is what makes me survive to take down 4 or maybe 5 opponents.
Speed is only good untill your opponent gets a (lucky) hit
and firepower is only good if your up 1 vs 1
Armor is staying-power
Edit: BTW, you can never fail a 1 vs 1 with a Nova Prime.
It eats all other mechs for breakfast in a duel.

I've always thought that I was an armor-based sort of person. But thinking about it I realize that all my designs try to keep a balanced heat load, so that I can fire almost all my weapons continuously. So while I may seem under-gunned, I guess I'm a firepower kind of guy.

Shadow Cat Prime.
Speedy - 130 kph with MASC
Firepower - Gauss Rifle, twin ER medium lasers <- outstanding for a 45-ton chassis
Armor - 7 tons of FF. Better protection than some Heavies

How about a Crab? It does well generalizing in each category.

Maneuverability multiplies the effectiveness of your armor and weapons. Superior positioning makes you harder to hit, and him easier - not to mention the rear shots.
