Dann, the Smoke Jaguar camo looks neat.

Don't need the ClamRifler as much as we need an Unseen Pack of light mechs. Gimme the WASP, STINGER and VALKYRIE and I will give you real money.

It has that big dish on its head. why not give it straight arm mounts and not that stupid bumped down a level weapons? Also the thing is massive for a 65 tonner, so it'll melt when it probably gets no armor quirks and terrible mobility, especially with however that dish will work hitbox-wise. I'd rework the scale first and after consider mount level changes on those arms. Have to wait to see the quirks (wish they would announce those at announcement of the mech so people know what they're getting into)

I know canyon network isn't the best map to compare scale, but when your screen shots show a 65 ton mech as similar size to 70, 80, and 100 ton mechs, it makes people look bad.

I always suspected based on the imagery of the Kerensky cockpit hologram that they, the clans, were Soviet aka Communist. Based on the first badge, confirmed!


Pfft.. yeah soviet was "communist" It was a dictatorship which hid behind socialist elements, misused and mangled socialist ideals to enforce brutality. Especially under Stalin.
Traded human lives for mismanaged collectivism and heavy focus on industry, causing death in millions due to ww2 and also partly to a draught that wrecked farmable areas in russia at the time which in turn gave food shortage, if Im not mistaken. Communism in its pures form is just a hopeless, impossible vision on a planet which is seared with greed and fear.
The clans, I see as more like tribal, hierarchical dwarvinists. Survival of the fittest.. kinda. With a dose of eugenics of course.

Anyway..

Miiiight get the rifleman later. Looks promising due to the head "pancake" being smaller than I thought. The Jagers and Rifle dudes got big enough hitboxes as is.

I wonder.... Jagermech IIC someday? Posted Image

Ignore the flashy screenshot -- alpha striking the primary Rifleman IIC variant on Terra Therma is generally not recommended.


The glass half-full guy would say 'LPL HLS+2 quirk confirmed!' :D

... alright, so once again we get confirmation the Awesome is very short. Still not getting one.

How about a side by side with a Hellbringer? This has potential to be deadly on Polar Highland or Alpine.

Even HSL+1 for LPL is nice! The EXE-A got this quirk a while back and the near-stock loadout (really just swap the MGs for armor) performs better than I expected.

*facepalm* In hindsight they should have shown the RM IIC along with the IS rifleman and Jager.. hrmm.

Speaking of armor. They should really up armor ALL assaults, IS and Clan alike. Based on bracket ( 80, 85 , 90 etc ), max speed, default armor and optimal firepower.

Say the Kodiak should get decent armor quirks since it can put a whallop in firepower to compensate, oh and speed buffs for those assaults that lost their fit due to engine desync.
Blanket buff + 5 armor for head, + 10 for legs, + 15 for arms, + 20 for side torsos and +25 for center torso as a start and adjust thereafter. Seriously, the Exe and Dire and maybe the Banshee and Atlas could do with buffout.

No, just buff mobility so they can twist more if they're designed to be on the frontline. A Dire Wolf shouldn't have huge armour because its a weapons platform.

There is a 70 tons IS Jagermech though. We have the JM6, there is a JM7 ;)

Wish it had a larger (but thinner) AWACs style dome on top. Also the barrels on the arms should come straight out, not be stepped down like that.

It looks good, but worried about the engine cap and quirks.

Anybody else think this thing seems a bit big for a 65-tonner? It is not that much smaller than a 100-ton Atlas for crying out loud!

Um. This isn't right at all. Almost as big as an Atlas? Perhaps they used the 'wrong model' like they did on the Warhammer IIC.

It's not as big as an Atlas (the frontal area is much greater on the Atlas) and it's not as tall as an Atlas (everyone looks at the antenna dish and measures across, but you also have to look down to see whether the feet line up...).
