So which launcher to best emulate the Macross Missile Massacre ( http://tvtropes.org/...MissileMassacre ) and still be somewhat viable?

Streaks only give a piddly 4 missiles....


I'm thinking
Endo + Ferro
XL300 + 4JJ
286 armor
3 MLas + 2 LRM10 + 3 tons ammo + 1 DHS

Its not lore based, but I was thinking of trying this:
3ML
2SRM4 (2 ton ammo)
1AC5 (2 ton ammo)
1JJ
304 Armor
Endo
XL 270.

Not sure how well it will do, but I had similar Shadowhawk builds that were great in the past.

I was curious where they would be located. Shoulders, arms, torsos?

Chain fire multiple LRM5s for that Itano Circus vibe. Use it a mid range vs lights or speedy mediums to make the missiles dance.

At least it will look cool.

Planning to turn my ROC into a shameless "jack of trades" thing.

XL270
6 JJ (not planning to run any PXH with fewer!)
1 x ERLL for long-range poking
2 x ML + 2 x SRM 4 (2 t ammo) for up-close work.
2 x AMS (2 t ammo)

Maybe it's time for MW:O's first ever leg-located missile hardpoints

If they give us the Wasp, we just might! :)
I don't like all the arm mounted weapons, but I guess that helps to handicap a mech that stands head and shoulders above it's weight class.

Gotta remember the Shadow Hawk has 10t of *** on Phoenix Hawk
