Don't you mean Avenger, not Advenger? Seriously, run your posts through spellcheck.

http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Avenger


Description

One of the smallest DropShips still in use, despite its size the Avenger Class features a level of weaponry almost equal to that of a Union Class, armor almost the equal of a Overlord Class and while retaining considerable speed. Found only in the navies of the Successor States, Avengers are reserved for major planetary assaults, forming the vanguard of the initial attack and clearing the path for the transport DropShips that follow it. Given its position at the forefront of the largest battles, their attrition rates are quite high.[3][2][4]
The Avenger is also notable for being one of the few aerodyne craft built for planetary operations which doesn't feature a secondary transit drive, just the single rear maneuvering drive. On the ground this means "up" is toward the vertical stabilizer, while under thrust "up" is towards the nose. This requires an exotic layout, with long corridors on the ground becoming lift shafts in space, and each room and its furniture being designed to be quickly switched between either orientation.[3][2][4]
Armament

Given its first strike role, the Avenger is impressively armed on all angles. In the nose weapons bay are two AC/5s, an AC/20, a LRM-20, and two large and two medium lasers. In each wing is a single PPC, a pair of AC/5's, an LRM-20 rack and two medium lasers. Face the rear is AC/2, an LRM-20 and two medium lasers. The Avenger's large ammo bays, especially for its LRM racks, allow it keep up steady rate of attack.[3][2][4]
Cargo

The Avenger features a single 93 capacity cargo bay, mounted near the drive to the rear of the craft. This dual purpose bay can also be used as bomb bay during planetary bombing and strafing runs, and is generally split between this purpose and carrying 15 marines


Upgraded Version - The Avenger class was the first Inner Sphere DropShip design to be refitted with rediscovered Star League technology, the first newtech example slipping its mooring at Dynamico in 3048, and the only one in actual production before the Clan Invasion disrupted similar upgrades for other classes. The primary changes are a switch to Double Heat Sinks and updating of its weaponry. Each set of twinned AC/5s in the nose and wings have been replaced by a single Gauss Rifle, the large lasers have been upgraded to extended range variants and the medium lasers have been switched for new pulse counterparts. The LRM launchers have all been upgraded with Artemis IV FCS, the only weapon removed completely being the sole rear facing AC/2.

Bah, freaking deathtraps, scrap the whole fleet.

I know at least a dozen pilots less because of their asinine propulsion system issues that stem from their single drive.... Hell that was the whole reason for the investigation, and whaddayaknow, a large corporation says" We looked into it and there`s nothing wrong at all with our products"

Pffft-...

(Or is this a different class that has been modified with Billboards on the left and right fuselage? :P)

The worst part is that the normal thread creation/reply function has spellcheck automatically in it- do they just ignore the little red underline??

Meh, we'll stick to the old Union class droppers,

sure, it's a bit cramped and hard to breathe when you have 12 mechs and 2 fliers taking up space... but I'll gladly take that old ball over what is an overbuilt, overpriced, glorified Aerospace Fighter.

No thank you. I'll let some other shmuck "test" them out.

"Mis-spelling" it as ADVENGER is 100% accurate. The spellcheck LOSTECH system was broke that entire month.

Q-36 Space Modulator.

In fact I think a few weeks later it starts reporting the wrong years too. Its in book too. mechwarrior 3050: dude wheres my mech?

If, it really hArms, your're eye to readd a smal ty-po wyh don you go buy a novel boook and read prrrrofessional literature.

AS long as we get the idea of what he is talking about there is no need to be trolling on forum...

FOCUS ON DEVELOP AS A GOOD PILOT and increase your ratios INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON INCREASING YOUR POST COUNT.

This is a game forum not a grammar-spelling contest. So please stay ON topic.

ok bye

Bah, KDR ratios mean nothing, forum posts mean nothing. It's all about mechaneering the best troll mechs, like a 9 flamer Hunch or a 4 ERPPC, 50 KPH Cicada. And likes.... gotta have dem post likes.
