QUESTION: Can you give us a list of weapons and equipment you expect at launch? Or at least what you KNOW will make it as of today? -Sprouticus

ANSWER: The weapon list is every Inner Sphere weapon available in the time frame, and they should all be in for launch. The following is a list of the weapons and equipment available at the time.
Weapons
Ballistic:
AC/2, AC/5, AC/10, AC/20
LB 10-X AC
Ultra AC/5
Gauss Rifle
Machine Gun

Energy:
Flamer
Small Laser, Medium Laser, Large Laser
ER Large Laser
Small Pulse Laser, Medium Pulse Laser, Large Pulse Laser
PPC
ER PPC

Missile Weapons:
LRM 5, LRM 10, LRM 15, LRM 20
SRM 2, SRM 4, SRM 6
Streak SRM 2

Equipment:
Standard and Endo-Steel Internal Structures
Standard and XL Fusion Engines
Jump Jets
Standard and Double Heat Sinks
Standard and Ferro-Fibrous Armour
CASE

Obviously not all of this will be stock, and some things will be harder to get than others. The equipment list is everything that I can guarantee for launch, though we’re likely to also have most, if not all, of the following ready to go:

Artemis IV
Anti-Missile System
Active Probe
ECM Suite
Narc Beacon
TAG

Hope you guys enjoyed this, and we'll run another one of these soon!

Nice to have some clarification on that point, now that we know what to work with.... *runs off to mech builder*

Also, since Endo Steel chassis and Ferro Fibrous are purchasable, I'm guessing it's confirmed these are not going to be restricted to variant type. That is very important info...

She's a solid list of goodness.

But wow, when you compare that tech to the upcoming Clan Tech, it'll be a read eye opener to see the extra power that Clan tech alone can bring to the battlefield. Those who role in IS Tech at that time will get a front row seat to it.

Still, I hope at that time for non-metagame play, PGI introduces the ability for players to play IS Tech only servers or "Mixed Tech".

At 3049, the Tech that Clanners had were Clan-equivs of the aforementioned, PLUS:

LBX/2, LBX/5, LBX/20
UAC/2, UAC/10, UAC/20
ER Small Laser, ER Medium Laser
Streak SRM/4, Streak SRM/6

3050-3051's gonna be a splash of water in the face :huh:

*smacks some sense into the person wearing a helmet* Not the Clan version, not yet anyhow, it is the SLDF version. Also thanks for giving us this info.

I noticed that too. No Triple-Strength Myomer isn't really a surprise, because its primary use is to double melee damage. But I was hoping for MASC. Oh well.

If Active Probes, ECM, Narc, and/or TAG are not in the game at launch, will this also delay the availability of the primary variant of the Raven?
