Out of all the IS Omnis, I've seen the Owens and Strider should stay out of MWO. Even though they are classics, the former doesn't have enough weapons and despite having a Standard Engine, the minimal weapon hardpoints won't help. The latter has lackluster weapon hardpoints as well and is not that speedy. They don't even hold a candle to Raptor in terms of performance and their BattleMech predecessors could whip them.

Yeah the Cicada would thrash a Strider any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Jenners of any variant would utterly trash an Owens, no contest.

Either fudge the Strider's engine (have fun XLing with what those hitboxes would look like) and fudge the Owens' SHS or they're DOA.

I genuine hope that MW5 Clans goes above 3052 so we can get IS Omnis. If not, maybe for DLC that pushes the era to 3057 or 3060.

I certainly wouldn't get my hopes up for the base game. I very seriously suspect a game that spans two or three years from either the initial invasion, or slightly before (on Huntress in training, plus the "year or so" it takes to get from the homeworlds to the Inner Sphere), through the Battle of Tukayyid, and ends at the beginning of the 15 year truce. Definitely leaves it open for DLC, but not much else happens with the Smoke Jaguars between 3052, and 3057, with the beginning of Operation Bulldog.
