The Dire Wolf B is listed as having 4 UAC2s split between left and right torso. If you match the arms from the prime variant to those you could mount 4 UAC20s.
YEESSSSS!

Now all I need is the ability to remove the engine completely and become a SUPER BASE DEFENSE TURRET!

I thought the Annihilator was supposed to be the super base defense turret.

Well we won't be getting one of those for a while (ALTHOUGH WE SHOULD HAVE ONE BEFORE THE CLANS SHOW UP BECAUSE WOLF'S DRAGOONS HAD THEM AND THEY SHOWED UP BEFORE THE CLANS DID HINT HINT PGI!), while we will be getting the Daishi soon.

You're a brave individual. I commend you for remaining chipper despite this unfortunate turn of events. ;)

I will say I think going for 2 UAC10s and a UAC20 may be better since that will allow you to pack on a few back up lasers.


How do I put this as succinctly as possible? B)

I felt so extremely filthy when I ran a 2xAC20 Jaeger that I quickly stopped using it. But, this time around, I will have no such qualms.

Death to freeborn scum!

How can they not when it's so simple? Command Console 2.0 (translation: it does nothing).

I'm disappointed that there will be no ECM Kit Focks. :\

But at least we can make him into a baby poptart, for what that's worth.

Most likely. Even if it does do something would it be worth ~3 tons on the Adder and ~6 tons on the Warhawk? Not likely.

Thank you..Thank you. I just had to express myself when I saw that, because for the last few weeks I was sure the S was one we were absolutely not getting. Everything I thought was right is wrong. Is down up?

True. However, for MWO purposes it seems all the non-assaults now have a JJ-capable core. Ironically, this means most people will have to buy all three just to get the hardpoints they want to meta together.

OK, not ironic. And keep em too, so no selling one if you wanna use the parts!

The parts can be owned independently. So if you want the Summoner D arms but not the rest, buy it, Basic it for the efficencies and then sell the core. They mentioned they will also sell Omni pods solo like a Summoner A RT because that is the only unique part of that mech.

Jump sniping metamonster AND Light nightmare (FOUR missile bays, 4xSRM6)

Not a fan of jump sniping, but I can get behind a 24SRM spammer. Could have space for those to be streaks.

They will have to be streaks.Clans do not have standart SRMs AFAIK.

I'm no Clan expert, but I thought one of the Mad Dog variants had regular SRMs on it.

Clans do have regular SRMs. Launchers are half the weight too, imagine that.

Of course, since SRMs right now are (mostly) useless for everybody, who cares?

The Mad Cat S, one of the confirmed Configurations, has four Clan-tech non-Streak SRM-6 launchers (1.5 tons & one critical space apiece).

And this is why none of the Clan Mechs will get ECM. ECM is a slot on one of the omni pods. We can swap omni pods across any variant. So if any one variant gets ECM, they *all* get ECM by virtue of a pod swap.
So yes you can see that many of the possible variants of the clan pack mechs have ECM pods - I'll bet 1000 Internet points that PGI doesn't make those as either of the two non-prime versions.


+1000 Internets for me...

I am not surprised by this at all. PGI knows that ECM is an imbalance and I expect it will be a long time, if ever, before the Clans gain an ECM variant because of the swapping rules.
