I hoped it was the Phoenix Hawk IIC Posted Image
But I guess that will be on the list as well considering all the IIC varaints being released.
Still a 65t mech that barely goes 60kph... don't know... I guess it will needs tons of quirks or insane agility.

At least it's not as wide as on the original. If it would be, the mech would die to air and artillery strikes more than to other mechs Posted Image

I feel like they should have shorten the cockpit down so the radar dome can sit lower. And also it's way too thick and looks more like an ugly hat. Instead of the cool looking radar that resembles a straw hat on a sage martial artist or something. The arms are also too boxy. Would have preferred long rounded barrels.

Just my opinion.

Let's wait for the agility stats and hotboxes before proclaiming their deaths...

The Gausshammer build on the -A could be good. A good Gauss vomit heavy on the Clan side seems scary. Not sure about the 6B one, though. The NTG is probably still gonna be the better ballistic turret due to available tonnage. We'll see.

I'm in love with it. Pre-ordered. And the thing I love most about it is that it's a completely new design.

JM6-DD has to use XL and it will have one less gun that 10% cooldown quirk can't compensate for. The cockpit is below the weapon mounts and the arms have less base armor than it should.

It would take a massive act of sabotage for the 6B RFL-IIC to *not* be a straight upgrade.

It's dead, Jim.

I wish the engine cap was at least 260 (for the 64.8 kph minimum speed for heavies) on the slow variants...going only 58.5 kph in a heavy mech with no armor quirks might be iffy.

This thing isnt any better than what we already have in game. Sidegrade at best, but man is that going to be slow...

Perpetually superior things makes other things obsolete, defeating the point of having variety.

Ultimately making a bad and broken game.

#doubt

The Loki will still have a better hill hump than the r2c. And the ebj- will have a better brawl. Then there's the Linebacker.... it's going to have to fill a neich tha at least 2 mechs can do aswell and at a faster top speed.
