The art department always does well with the designs, but they really knocked it outta the park with this one.

Sincere question : why do preview screenshots have compression artifacts and aliasing? Is bandwidth a concern? The screenshots would look way better with MSAA or TXAA enabled.

I am very much afraid that the cockpit view will be terrible. Like with the Piranha. The windows on the concept art looked much more open. I need to see well out of a cockpit or I lose battlefield awareness as in the 30th century they lost the ability to evidently manufacture mirror (rear cameras are science fiction anyways in Battletech)...

Honestly it's probably gonna have a harder time than the others with it's layout/tonnage better off going to weapons but it will definitely be fun to experiment with. Either way I don't care... it's the Vapes.

Yeah, the terror of five (5) MG is really too much for... some. Posted Image

There are many reasons to be afraid of the Vapor Eagle but MG are not one of them.

I've been theory crafting with the standard pack, the VGL-2 with the 5 Ballistic hard-points can comfortably boat 5 Ultra AC2's or 5 LBX-2 AC's with 4-6 tons of ammo, depending on how much you like backup lasers. The VGL-1 is the most versatile, and I easily have 8 builds already screen capped and ready. I can post them somewhere if there's interest.

Looks like Devs got the "vapor eagle" to look very much like the concept artwork, gratz.

On the other-hand I'm really not liking this mech design.
For a start a "vapor eagle" should at least have the wide/long wing-like shoulder pads.
Guess I'll find out if its too late to cancel a preorder?

Looks more like Goshawk II especially the head, & would've been a better name for this mech.
