That is because Jetfire looked super awesome. Though, the best voice will always go to Soundwave.

Jetfire was really cool, but I remember that only the rich kids could afford it.

Hence the name the "Hunter" pack....


You can already paint your Phoenix Hawks with a pretty close approximation of the white / black / yellow Skull Squadron paint job.

I'm beginning to think that the Phoenix Hawk PHK-7S would be like the IS energy version of Vapor Eagle :)

Especially with so many different versions of PPC of various weights/utility!

JJ + MASC, and mega energy quirks :)

The Stalker is kind of meh. There are already a lot of 6E variants for the STK. A 6M/2E or straight up 8M variant would things interesting for the STK chasis

Umm...am I the only one who noticed that the Phoenix Hawk is painted in Rick Hunter's colors from Robotech?


Yes, and it will goes well with my Roy Focker's Skull Leader camo Shadow Hawk.

So with the "Rick Hunter" VF-1J Phoenix Hawk available, any chance you'll finally get rid of those goofy double-barrelled handguns for the PXH chassis when they have two energy weapons equipped in the right arm? Posted Image

I hope so! The double barrels are just ugly.

Well you're still missing the most crucial change to make solo queue fun again (in my opinion): Kick the groups out again! The "matchmaking" is completely off when groups are involved. Yes, it's not always in favour of the side with the (larger) group, the point is, the matchmaker seems to treat a group as something occupying 2-4 slots on a side but disregards the mechs used. So you'll get conquest with one side being way lighter and faster or skirmish with one side having way more firepower than the other.
Again, easy solution: Kick the small groups out of solo queue again - as the name suggests, they do NOT belong there!
Other option would be to fix the matchmaker to treat groups properly. That will require dev time and coding time.
Both will lengthen queue times, but lead to better matches in the solo queue.

new Phoenix Hawk will likely be quite good -- you could fit, for instance, a max engine, MASC (can get up to 169 KPH with speed tweak), max armor, 4 JJs and 7 SPL for an extremely agile short-range striker

I'm thinking something like that or like a 3 MPL 4 ERSL combo for a little more range and maybe drop down to 2JJs. 170 kph at 45 tons does sound cool.

Honestly I'm probably gonna pick up the pack just so i can use that Ghillie net bolton for the Stalker on a Misery.

I've got bad news. These bolt-ons can only be applied on the (S)pecial variants.
