That is impressive. Would be hilarious to try it out.

This is the sign of the Cicada apocalypse.

If anyone runs this enough to get speed tweak, let me know if the extra 4 kph helps. :)

A fitting Stalker substitute CDA-2B
And the good old noisy cricket CDA-2A

With all that ammo rushing out of the Mech's head at once, does the mechwarrior get dizzy?

Can you actually SEE the chassis between the cannon?

That Stalkada is actually more heat efficient than I thought it would be. :)

That's what I was thinking. 2.33 DPS isn't great, but it can fire more than once per match.

Shortest match in history. Like dueling in a broom closet with sawed-off shotguns.

Well this seems like a typical "wow where comes all the free tonnage from - i could fit way more guns in there - didnt i forget something - like maxarmor - facepalm builds" :)
But you have to try it out .... like the 8 LL hunchback is still waiting for me ^^

I just started working on the Cicadas. Guess which 3 variants I am going to go with when I reach elite?

Noisy Cricket 2A, Stalkacada 2B and AC40 3C. (3M has ECM which I refuse to use). I will probably fall back to a more sensible 4AC2 for the CDA-3C though.

You might see some videos in the next month.

Look up Mack's video for the Jagermech 6-DD 6AC2 DakkaDakka. There's a macro in there that would work great with 4 AC2s... legally!

I've seen the vid. Should try it. It might be a while before I get enough C-bills and time to make a video though.

Unless it's Alpine. It would take 11 minutes for first visual contact!

Just dropped over to Smurfy.net and yes, 6 AC2s, 6 tons of Ammo, an XL 255 and 250 points of armor.

Not as funny as the Cicadanator AC40 though...

And you could break for lunch while the rounds lob across the field to do a residual three points ' damage when they hit....

You know what would be embarrassing? Piloting one of these things and somehow still being alive after your ammo runs out.

"OK. guys? I'm gonna go cap but ya gotta be patient..."

They are popping the champagne at the STD 100 manufacturing plant! Those motors are going to start flying off the shelves! :)

Max damage is 140 points...it's cheese the other way but it could be funny as 8v8 just to see who survives and doesn't. THere's a good chance everyone runs out of ammo and is running around ramming each other to get the kill at the end. I'd enjoy watching that vid. Time to get the popcorn out!
