Matt... Fafnir is not a Davion design. Its a Steiner mech. The Davion pattern should be replaced with the Steiner pattern.

Shouldnt the early adopter award be a steiner pattern? :)

Do we really get the same standing item again in the early adopter rewards, that we get with the basic/collector package? I would prefer a different pattern than the ugly Davion pattern. I have to think hard if I preorder this mech. I wished for the Fafnir, but now I'm not reaaly sure about it.



FINE... after getting the nitty gritty details from Alex "Flying Debris" Iglesias I will include BOTH the Davion and the Steiner pattern for the Early Adopters. You filthy freebirths ;)

Hey, just for clarification: On the sale page, the Standard and Collector's packs include the FNR-B When you look at the mech specs, I am assuming this is the FNR-5B...? Or the other way around?



YOU ARE CORRECT! FIXED!

Just in case, I don't suppose that 325 max engine rating is a typo, and it should be 360? Only, the non-Hero Atlas & King Crabs all come with a 300 rated engine and have a cap of 360, even the ECM capable AS7-D-DC, but the Fafnir is left with a 325.

Just wondering.

The Fafnir being a Steiner signature Mech is not exactly a "nitty gritty detail". But good that we get a Steiner pattern.

Cool thing, I like none of the 6 Faction patterns, but people will be happy.

The more important question for me was the cockpit item.

Overall glad to see it, but if that hero's supposed to be based off of Peter Steiner-Davion's later Fafnir, it sure got shafted on missile hardpoints (originally had 10 Rocket Launcher 10s), even if the CT one is impossible without compact gyros or ditching the ECM.

That's a good point. What is the reason for lowering the engine cap? The usual multiplier for assaults is 1.2x.
You massively increased the Annihilator's engine cap and now this. Why?

Yes! Finally, the Fafnir is out. I love how Alex went ahead with the Mechwarrior 4 version of the Fafnir and modernized it. I'm going to get this mech.

Who else remembers this mission?:
My favorite dialogue of the mission is this:
Spectre: It looks like they finished arming those Fafnirs, this is going to be one hell of a fight!
Castle: Watch yourself sir, recovered data indicates those heavy gauss rifles are murderous within 600 meters.
Spectre: Yes, I read that and each of those Fafnirs mounts a pair of those things.

Thanks Matt!

I might have to get this since I'm such an assault mech fanatic. I can't resist the design. It looks like a giant walking twin rocket engine.

To be fair, the IS got the Roughneck last year and Clans got the Mad Cat Mk II and, to a lesser extent, the Nova Cat, plus they're getting the Piranha this month.

Please tell me there's something wrong with the aspect ratio of that image as it looks like a baby fafnir. All short and stumpy. Its not like you can't do a long torso.......Kingcrab.

Wallet stays closed for this. Now get me my Argus and it'll open again.

FP is 3057, the rest of the game is somewhere before or around 3067 (end of the FedCom Civil War)
