A/C 20 - 14 tons, 10 criticals, 5 shots/ton ammo
Gauss Rifle - 15 tons, 7 criticals, 8 shots/ton ammo
So the Dragon, Centurion, and Hunchback can all mount a gauss rifle if they can free up enough weight for it. Depending on how quickly we gain access to XL engines will be a factor in mounting gauss rifle on the smaller mechs.
If you guys want something to help you with customization before MWO is released, go here:
this site has a number of mech creator programs used to make mechs for the board game (whose specs seem to be used by the Devs so should apply to MWO). I use The Drawing Board 2.0.23 and find it best as it also includes premade mechs from all the TRO's in folders by TRO date (i.e. 3025, 3050, 3055, etc...) so you can load them up to see where the weapons are placed on the stock model (since you will need to know where the respective hardpoints are as that is the system the Devs are using) and let you play around with some designs before the game starts.
Note: I don't know how many hardpoints will be in each weapon location (the video shows the Hunchback as having 3 ballistic hardpoints in the right torso) so it seems like the bigger the stock weapon as well as the number of weapons mounted in that location determine the available hardpoints.
