Negative. The UAC/5 is 5 slots, and the 4X has 9 slots free in the right arm, and 8 in the left.





That wouldn't work either, need 9 slots for the UAC/5 + AC/5 and the left arm only has 8

You could do 3 AC/5 + UAC/5 with a 4X though.


You could do 2x UAC5 and 2x AC5 with the 4x but not 3x UAC5.

Looks like this will be the first mech capable of carrying 3 Gauss Rifles... Though you would have to make some serious sacrifices somewhere to do that.


I'm not sure that's entirely possible on this small a frame. 70 tons doesn't leave a whole lot of room for 45 tons worth of ballistics, not to mention the ammo you need to carry to support those (I run 6 tons with 2 Gauss, I'd imagine I'd need to get upwards of 8-9 tons of ammo squeezed in on this guy to get enough shots off). So that's ~54 tons in weapons +7tons on an endosteel frame +engine +extras....

Ya that's probably not going to happen.

Edit: Yep. Tried throwing this together in MechMekLab. I'm at 76/70 tons. I guess you could do it with 3 tons of ammo....good luck with your 10 shoot clip. Don't miss. Besides, it'll take you ~3 shots with all 3 to core an Atlas CT. So that leaves you with 7 shots for the rest of the enemy team, and better hope they don't have 2 Assaults that you need to deal with. Not to mention you are literally limping around with a Standard 100 Engine.

Not my fault, I blame the creator of the MWO Mechbay Java program :)
its possible, though you would be pressed to fit even 3 tons of ammo... And you would be extremely slow and under armored.


Yep. At 3 Tons, you still are 2 tons of armor short of max. You're more limited by crit slots and engine size though. I personally don't feel that a Standard 100 Engine and hobbling around the battlefield at 23.1 kph is good for your health. That's even assuming they'd let you go that low on an engine...which I think they'd limit you to a 140 engine, for a respectable (*cough laugh cough*) 32.4 kph. But then you gotta find another 1.5 tons to shave...and I know for sure that's not happening.

I wonder if this will cost the same as the YLW. A bit pricey, but could be a fun money maker.

Any word on whether this one will have a C-Bill bonus like the Yen-Lo-Wang?

I demand that the Annihilator be introduced to MWO, there should not be a mech that can carry 3 Gauss unless the Annihilator and it's C2 variant are on the field showing the Cataphract how it's done properly.

I've just put this mech together running 3 Gauss and it's just not practical. It's a Glass cannon simply put.

However this version is a bit more practical running triple UAC/5 and 3 smalls with an XL250 powerplant.

I will max out the armor and speed and this mech will become my new brawler mech. 3 medium lasers and 3 LBX 10s if I can get it to work.

Triple Gauss, Triple UAC5, Russian Bias!!!!!111ONE! oh wait, wrong game.

on a serious note, I've been trying to decide on a 3rd phract variant after 3D for JJs and 4X for dakka, looks like I've found it, and another non-Jenner-F C-Bill grinder to boot :)

I dont have an issue with them making hero mech that are not Canon. There just isnt very many great hero mech to pick from that would really give us something new and more than what we can do with our own custom mech. I welcome it. This universe is vast and there will be many many heroes and their mech out there that we would never have heard of. This is just a good way to add flavor to the universe.

Fine, you asked for it... this is just a few of the many I have, I don't think the mods would like it if I cluttered this up with half a dozen photos. Some are when they were fresh, unfinished or are just bad photos (never bothered to take good ones).
