This mech would go better for St. Paddy's Day, for all the multicoloured vomit we'll soon be seeing.

Is there any chance of removing the arm actuators on this 'mech? Per the precedent set by the Supernova, it is reasonable to have created these 'mechs to be capable of mounting the actual record sheets loadout that could not be built at the time of introduction due to limited tech availability (no heavy lasers at the time). The HBK IIC-2, which would have been added instead of the -A had heavy lasers been available, is missing its arm actuators (all four of them) so as to mount two extra heat sinks.

On a similar topic, the HBK IIC-3 could be built on the -B but for the missing head energy hardpoint...

Thanks!

Great!

After two Assault 'Mechs, there comes my favourite medium weight class!

That solo kill might be an issue for some.

Not really... Most of it will certainly NOT be green, which makes multi-colored Laser bursts fail in fitting the kind of Theme which one would find when St. Patrick's Day is happening. :P

Hey there, you two... While it happens that I would enjoy seeing someone at PGI fix a spelling error and say they did, the odds of that happening after a previous spelling error during the 2021 End-Of-Year Holiday Stuff going unchecked has made this rather unlikely... But what the hey, it would be nice to see someone in PGI's Staff do something and then pipe up and totally prove me wrong about my current guess of how worn out and overstressed that they must be. :unsure:

Yeah, new colors are great. Gives me an excuse to spend more time in the mechbay tweaking the looks.

You know, some of us of Irish heritage take offense to the notion that the entirety of our culture is that one day a year we dress up like morons and get blackout drunk.

Most people would be appalled if you suggested that kind of a stereotype about any other ethnicity. But hey, it's ok to insult the Irish that way.

I agree. Most of the Irish folk I know abhor the U.S.'s take on the holiday.

76pt alpha on a 50 ton mech is pretty strong, albeit spicy.



Good hunting,
