You really got the guts of trying a clan nerf that results in refunds (two from me), then later having two PTS about nerfing clans and then try to sell a new clan mech. Lucky me that I decided to stay with IS AND to not give the funkillers (PGI) any more money.

Good looking!
Hope it doesn't tower over all other mediums.

Edit:
Bought. Alex great art as always.
Fingers crossed on size.
GOOD FOR Me but continues to baffle me that 2nd line mechs are SO MUCH BETTER THAN OMNIS.
Missed opportunities.

55 Tons with 400 Max Engine. Can't wait for Kanajashis Spreadsheet, even if it is more or less a troll option like the ASN-101 with max engine.

The name blocks the torso of the mech on my screen. I had to scroll down to see what it looks like.

It's a BattleMech (so better than Omninerfmechs) Clan 55 tonner that goes about as fast as a Stormcrow and has several ballistic hardpoints. Not seeing much special about it, and the hitboxes and low hardpoints don't look great.
What's special about it?

YES! Finally a Steel Viper design. We need to have some steel viper designed mechs in the game.

Can you make that hero have just a few more hard points? I can't even imagine trying to fit a load out that works for a 55 tonner with an adjustable engine.

I always thought the vapor eagle was a IS mech for some reason

Looking very viable , hopefully division 5? Maybe 6?

Clan mechs are always wanting on armor so the max 400 engine makes it legit. I'm in

Until the clan laser nerfs are resolved, it's not going to even be on my radar.

Nice to see this as a follow-up to the Incubus!

The Vapor eagle 1 is the first mech in a long time where it might actually be viable to mix ballistic, energy and missiles in one chassis (MGs + SRMs + lasers)

On paper that is one nasty build! I would not want to face that in a light. However, arm missiles are pretty annoying to use on any mech.

Is this a Stab at Faction Play being "VAPOR-ware" ? Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

I must say it does LOOK gorgeous / fantastic / amazing VISUALLY.

VGLA will be the best one, 4 srm6 lbx20 ? if that will fit.

Looks good, will buy collectors, don't expect it to be meta but will be fun/average.

Do something other than the PTS nerfs and I'll buy it, I just got paid.
