Reminder that DLC for soytech recently came out and nobody was impressed. Also F to the /monster/girl regiment and if you want to avenge them there's megamek instructions pdf in OP.


Assault Tech 1:Battletech:


>Long dead remake of Mechwarrior 2 using a custom built up to date engine. Canned cause of PGI. There is however a playable build you can enjoy.

Blender Battletech:


>Game made by a solo autist using Blender. It can be surprisingly addicting and also perhaps the closest you will get to playing tabletop in first person.



>/k/omfy RTT where you command up to a company of Mechs and Remove Furfags. Have to use tactics and also heavy use of salvage to win.

Mechcommander 2 Omnimtech:


>Standalone game build off the source code of Mechcommander 2. Adds a fuckton of shit and campaigns.

Mechwarrior 4 Mercs - MekPak 3.1:


>MW4M with a fuckload of new content. Was originally hosted by Mektek and going to get a mega expansion till PGI cried "OY VEY! SHUT IT DOWN!" so now it is hard to come by. Got a decent branching campaign where you play as a Merc and run your own unit.

Mechwarrior Living Legends:


>Mod for Crysis where the devs went on to be hired by Crytek themselves and create the Cryengine 3. Focuses on Battletech Combined Arms, not just Mechs. PGI insisted on them being shut down cause it was better than their crappy F2P game. Dead for a bit before drunken Slavs took over and decided to continue work on the game. Now standalone.



>Online version of Battletech tabletop. Once you have the autism to figure it out it's actually relatively comfy to play. Also can chose to make prisoners pregnant.



>Browser game that emulates Battletech tabletop. Nice little time waster.

Battletech - Flashpoint:


>Torrent of the game that is full of soy, should be latest release

Other useful stuff


>Site that lets you design your own vehicle, not just Mechs, for Battletech Tabletop.


>Battletech Wiki. Worth it just for a browse. Also their download section is full of goodies.


>Mechwarrior 4 Wiki

From what I've heard they won't let you customize Mechs at all which I am sort of on the fence about. On onehand it means each Mech becomes useful, on the otherhand I damned certain they aren't doing it other than to sell Mech variants as DLC.

>Make it so Medium Laser Boat isn' the only meta

On the contray there's a plenty of Mechs around in 3015 when this game is set that are more than capable of providing excellent Medium Laser vomit. The real question is if they have fixed the retarded heat scale that made it so that a single Medium Laser overtaxed 10 Single Heatsinks.

Also just noticed something I never picked up on before. Game is going from 3015-3049. I suspect there will be "Furfag" DLC down the road.

Real question we need to ask ourselves is if we can pirate the entire game and get MP working with 4 anons

Was that last badguy named Howell?

Why is a guy with a Smoke Jaguar Bloodname running around playing pirate? A bloodnamed warrior wouldn't stoop that low before the invasion kicks off. After operation bulldog, sure, but not before the clans make it to the inner sphere or while they are winning every single fight they pick, ie, everything before the battle of Tukayyid.

And that writing was painful.

>Professional mercs run off to a far away planet, despite the expense and time required to go to another planet around half to a whole month's worth of travel time, if its just one jump, plus jumpship faire, which isn't cheap over a personal grudge for no pay.

>When the mission ends, everyone congratulates the player on how amazing they are, even their parents would be proud!

>Random bystanders decide to pay you.

So many clichés. At least when you do the pro bono work in MW4:M all your colleagues with rip on you for doing it,

Also, is it me or does it seem like all the buildings have no mass? Mechs keep walking right through them without so much as a speed bump. Am I the only one who would like for buildings to be a bit sturdier, so they don't just collapse in a stiff breeze or because someone brushed up against them.


For real? Mech customisation is a hallmark of battletech. I don't think they have made a single game in the franchise that doesn't allow it to some degree.

Cutting it out won't kill any boating meta's, it just means most mechs will be discarded instantly for not being the meta mech. I mean, why would anyone use any medium mech but a Hunchback P if Medium Lasers rule the meta?

This might be the worst player I've ever seen. Why the fuck does this retard wait ten seconds between shots? It can't be for aiming, considering he still regularly misses with anything that doesn't lock on.

He also seems entirely unable to walk and rotate significantly at the same time.



>why would anyone use any medium mech but a Hunchback P if Medium Lasers rule the meta

Probably because they're going to cuck it on heat dissipation if they really wanna kill the laserboat. But of course, PGI is going to be PGI and use the opportunity to sell gold-plated Atlasi instead.


I just don't understand how they can fuck up this much. All they needed to do was make a carbon copy of MekHQ and give it their graphics.

A 3D carbon copy of MekHQ would cost triple their budget. That's just the features and the handful of mechs they have alone. If they included the entire timeline, it'd go up to AAA level of budget.

I agree but the mind of a tranny is a mystery to me so I dunno why they didn't.


The KS goal was low but KS is mostly used by established devs nowadays to give investors a gauge on how interested the public is to their project. I wouldn't be surprised if the game cost, excluding marketing, 4 million at least, considering where they're based in.

358554  No.103083

I had a look at their kekstarter

Apparently they got $2.8 million from it. That is not enough to make the game they made. In fact $4million is not enough.

Then again I think they spent a good chunk of their budget on PR are advertising when you look at things considering how soylent their devs are.

Its far better balanced that it was at launch, and post Flashpoint you can play in a career mode instead of the campaign, thus letting you avoid most of the special snowflakes from that storyline.

Ever since my Ace pilot got a lethal injection of projected particles via cockpit I've been trying to think of what to do with the empty highlander kicking around. I think I wanna swap out the ac/20 for something or just do something retarded with it. Maybe give it hatchet or something dumb.

Any ideas?

Which variant? One of them has room for 4 LRM 2'ies if my memory serves. Throw in stab damage buffs on each launcher and you got a mech that can max out any enemy's stability gauge in one salvo, with split salvos it can fuck of 2 mediums every turn.

For close range, AC 20 and how ever many SRM 6's you can fit, finetune with Mlas, Slas and heatsinks.

If you want maximum stlye, get some hefty leg mods and some JJ's so you can have it doing proper highlander burials.

Which makes me worried honestly that it will just be LRM spam which in an era without AMS and no directional jump jets in game is a bit of a bitch


>Mech customisation is a hallmark of battletech

Doing tabletop RPG's and Mechwarrior maybe, but not regular Battletech. Partly because customisation of your Mech costs an arm and a leg, even with proper facilities to do it. Mostly because good luck finding anyone who will let you bring customs in a match.

>why would anyone use any medium mech but a Hunchback P if Medium Lasers rule the meta?

There's actually a fair few Mechs out there that would give a Hunchback a good run for it's money. Problem is I don't think they are in MWO and therefore don't believe they will be in MW5: The Quest for more Gold Mechs.


>All they needed to do was make a carbon copy of MekHQ and give it their graphics.

Well that would require some time, effort and talent. Which they don't have. 3D MekHQ would work well as a Battletech game no doubt but it would likely require them building their own engine to be as good as they wanted it to be. Keep in mind they've outsourced all their 3D assets and haven't really made anything original for the Battletech game it's well outwidth their scope.

In that case I'd even consider turning it back into a HGN-733 and replacing that AC/20 with an AC/10 and adding some extra ammo which gives you an even range portfolio. Or you could do what anon suggested and replace it with some LRM's or SRM's. Could even replace that weapon with a PPC but make sure you slap on some heatsinks.

Lets see then, it needs to be fast enough to chase down the naughty shotas but strong enough to hold its own. So for the Assault class we will be looking at probably the 80-90 tonners.

King Crabs are always nice but I am a little triggered by that Victor and one thing I've noticed is they've not shown Jump Jets. A Victor could stand a good chance of hurting that's King Crab if it could do what it is meant to do, i.e. Jump Jet behind someone and shoot them in the ass with an AC/20, not to mention getting the fuck out of dodge easily It would be nice to see melee but I doubt they will code it.

In regards to their trailer; yeah it did feel like they just booted up fraps. Do they really expect a Cicada to win fights against any Mechs other than a Locust? Also that shooting was terrible.

Yeah I could see them doing something akin to lootboxes for salvage or something or probably a best idea is something akin to how that Warhammer Vermintide does loot and finding a way to monitize it.

Technically it would be simply slapping a 3D GUI over it as the scripting is already there.

In reality it will require more autism than that to ensure it's relatively bug free.

Adding animations, 3D models and effects sounds simple enough but getting them to work as intended? Whole problem especially when you are trying to force it into existing code. More than likely what is needed is for you to basically create your own game for scratch using said rules.

>Adding animations, 3D models and effects sounds simple enough

But there's like, several thousand different mechs alone, plus tanks, power armor, PBI's, aerospace fighters, other flying units, buildings, terrain types, dropships and thats not even counting the weird shit like mobile buildings, battle trains, submarines, building mounted turrets and all that kind of shit.

Thats going to be an awful lot of "simple enough".

I do like the idea. It would allow us to fix some of the shit in the lore that just doesn't make sense, like every single thing about the scale of the universe…

Instead of sprawling interstellar empires, why not a dyson swarm of habbitats? No need for jumpships and space combat between anything bigger than an aerospace figther is banned, ares convention style, due to the danger of Kessler Syndrome. Factions could be made up of groups of habitats fighting over economic, political, religious or cultural reasons. We could easily have 2 groups of transhumans fighting it out, one making themselves look part animal and another modifying their bodies to look like young female anime characters.

To justify the giant robots, just say something about the need for the robots to be able to operate in vacuum and weightless environments as well as in gravity. Having arms and legs to mount equipment and thrusters on makes them better suited for such environments than tanks. Not full gundam retardation with the robots, just enough manoeuvrability that you can drop the mechs off in vacuum outside the station and have them fight their way in and still be useful where ever they end up inside the station, while the tanks would mostly only be useful for fighting inside a habitable drum, where the terrain is more earth like and fights are likely to be fought at ranges longer than what you can get fighting inside a warehouse.

So the reason mechs are better than tanks isn't inherent to mechs itself, so much as their versatility insures they are the premier combat platforms that get all the fanciest and most expensive tech, guns and armor, while tanks are relegated to being used as cheap mass produced machines to be fielded in large numbers where you have enough open room for them to be useful. Like how a propeller plane doesn't get as much fancy tech as an F-35.

Now if we really want make the setting stand out, how about, instead of having it set some time after the "precursor empire" has collapsed, why not set it during the collapse? Instead of the successor houses fighting over who gets to be in charge as they rebuild star league, why not set it during the war that brought it down? Just make the different factions fight over the diminishing resources, agencies and habitats, with less and less available as the war goes on. There's no way to replace the weapons, habitats and equipment lost in the war, as everyone struggles to be on top of the what's left. Think more 1st and 2nd succession war than 4th succession war. Could set up some philosophical themes for the whole setting here, about the fighting is destroying the very thing everyone is fighting over or the self destructive nature of empires or society or some shit like that.

Or would you guys prefer something closer to Battletech? Sorry about the rant, I got so many ideas I could work with here

f64b18  No.110776

>But there's like, several thousand different mechs alone

Well you could do it in eras and release small batches at a time, gradually build up as you go along. Especially with all the rulesets you can keep things as simple or advanced as you want to be. So this isn't really an issue.

>It would allow us to fix some of the shit in the lore that just doesn't make sense, like every single thing about the scale of the universe…

No shit. There's quite a lot of shit that doesn't add up in Battletech, like how there is not even enough Jumpships to even keep planets running nevermind wage war. Then the fact that Warships are extinct despite the technology to construct them being more primitive than Battlemechs. Also weapon ranges and how some of them function, lets not get started on those okay?

>Justifying Battlemechs over Tanks

Funny enough some of the reasons you described are exactly why Battlemechs are fielded. In Battletech a Battlemech isn't just for fighting; it's a Mobile Command Vehicle, Life Support System, Heavy Ordnance Platform, Electronic Warfare Suit, and Status Symbol all rolled into one and if you factor in Omnimechs, troop transport that is incredibly fast to deploy.

The real key advantages of a Battlemech over a Tank is that is far more adept at fighting in any environment while keeping their occupants in relative comfort over any other fighting vehicle without requiring heavy specialization and that already includes Space. That is before you get onto myomer and neural technology that gives a pilot of Battlemech far greater control over their vehicle than Tanks, plus internal structure which means that even after losing limbs a Battlemech can remain combat effective where a Tank would be completely knocked out.

I kind of wish Battletech would embrace the combined arms aspect of the game a lot more. They already ignore the shit out of Aerotech despite it relatively being quite interesting and I feel what sets Battletech apart from a lot of franchises is the fact that Tanks are still a real threat to Mechs and they can be both tougher but also more fragile, faster but less mobile.

>Making our own universe

If we go down this road I would be fine. Hell there's already genetic engineering and cybernetics in Battletech that we could even go back to making Catgirls vs Lolis if we change our mind. I personally would change a lot of things to be involving Corporate Warfare rather than any Nations or Governments of any kind. It feels that it would make a lot more sense where Megacorps wage skirmish warfare against each other trying to sabotage their facilities, steal their secrets and capture their assets with there being no real profit in engaging in a Total War style engagement where everything is destroyed. An Interstellar Empire would be a bureaucratic nightmare and impossible to police so while you could have evidence of Government Control it would be relatively restricted or very uncommon, typically only coming out if someone is doing something really questionable.

>Playing through First/Second Succession War Eras or Amaris Coup

It is actually possible to do that already although not popular despite how much of a glorious murder orgy it can be. Firstly, I blame Clannerboos. Second, a lot of fags don't like having to worry about fighting while suffering orbital bombardment. I agree though, I would love to give something like this a lot more attention.

Have any of you fags played Mechcommander Darkest Hour?

It essentially introduces resolution fixes and an extended campaign plus some tweaks.


e4e62c  No.113513


Yes, it's neat and all but I think fucks a bit too much with the difficulty having a bizarre situation where the enemies are much harder - but then it overloads you with fuckloads of Clan Tech from the very first mission that in turn makes quite a lot of things a cakewalk.

2dc6d8  No.113526


That was always the case in Mechcommander.

Remember how with a little guile and luck, you could get a Mad Cat in mission 2 in the first game, by blowing a fuel tank at just the right moment, giving you an insanely OP mech for the first 2/3 of the game.

e4e62c  No.113558


Yeah but this mod gives you essentially enough Clan Tech from the very first mission that you use it to outfit an entire company of Battlemechs, plus also gives you a Jagermech, Centurion and Catapult for free.

I've played some of Darkest hour, and it was nice, neat with the resoultion fixes and whatnot but the diffuclty in my opinion ramped up quite alot, where you really gotta be sure to scout out and make sure your lance can even tango with the enemies. I didn't get too far in the campaign though although i'll have to give it a try. Its defenitely fun and really cool that people modded Mechcommander 1's campaign and stuff.

What logs I remember from the Jihad source books it was mostly shit talking other clans.

In all seriousness most clans don't seem particularly furry, the various animals the clans are associated with venerated and idealized the same way burgers love their bald eagles and Russians like their bears. Few warriors actually dress up in fursuits, try to convince anyone else that they are said animals in every way but the physical or have OC's.

Typical examples of the ways they obsess about their totem animals would be like the Goliath Scorpions injecting themselves with venom from the actual Goliath Scorpion to have visions (or get killed by it), Hells Horses warriors being tasked with hunting down and subduing an actual Hell Horse (a regular horse genetically engineered to be a predator) ideally without killing it or the Jade Falcons that require all bloodnamed warriors to make a cape for their ceremonial uniform, covered in Jade Falcon feathers (they have to sew it themselves, so its hard not to imagine biggest and meanest elementals and battle-hardened mechwarriors sitting around the barracks at night practising their needle work in case they ever get a chance for a bloodname.

Every clan has their own traditions for that kind of shit, but its not like Smoke Jaguars dress up like jaguars to go yiffing or anything, honest.

Let's be honest. Battletech was on the decline when FASA still had it and more or less continued under Wizkids. Catalyst bought a game that had problems, in a tabletop game climate that favored faster games more and more.

I've played it. it's a VR game with the VR sort of removed. however my issue with it is how the mechs handle, it's pretty awkward to control because of the way your mech legs move. the physics are semi realistic till you try and climb something odd shaped or when you loose a leg. it's got promise but it's pretty lacking in scoop.

Apart from pic related RAC/2s do offload ammo onto a target a lot faster than a LAC/2 and if you learn to burst fire you will never really jam. 4 RAC/2s will pretty much core out even some Assault Mechs in a few seconds.

No they did not. Outworlds Alliance WON in the Reunification War. Sure they lost worlds but the Star League was forced to pay for the damage they had inflicted on the Outworlds Alliance and they still had full control over their remaining clay..

The only Periphery State that came out better than them technically was the Magistracy of Canopus and that was because the whole conflict was more or less settled with a spanking quite literally than complete warfare.

Nope, but they didn't surrender unconditionally. I think they were the only ones not to. Still even by 3050 they still had yet to recover from the aftermath of the reunification war. They did however make the stationed SLDF forces leave by making them held responsible to locale laws. Also their best fighting force, the Pitcairn Legion, was volunteers taken mostly from the elite Davion Brigade of Guards

Hows that Aerospace working out for you?


Actually they did, arguably the correct term would be calling it a draw. While nobody ever recovered from the Reunification War the Star League were forced to pay them repairations, hand over some of their own troops to them to face trials for warcrimes and basically rebuild the Outworlds Alliance for the damage they had caused to them.

>While nobody ever recovered from the Reunification War…

The final provisions of the treaty included the following: the Outworlds Alliance would retain its autonomy as a state; the Outworlds Alliance would fall under the direction of the Periphery Policy Council on Terra, reporting as a Star League Protectorate; the Outworlds Alliance would cede fourteen worlds to the Draconis Combine; the Outworlds Alliance would cede nine worlds to the Federated Suns; the Star League would provide economic and technological assistance to repair and rebuild the Outworlds Alliance.

The two demands that the Alliance wanted was: the initial position of the Alliance and President Avellar consisted of two demands - that the Alliance be granted the same rights and freedoms as any other Star League member nation, and that General Amos Forlough, the original commander of the Star League invasion force, be tried along with his immediate subordinates on Alpheratz for genocide and war crimes. They never got it. So I don't know where you keep going on about reparations and handing over of troops for war crimes. The man responsible for the deaths of so many civilians died of old age a hero.

>So I don't know where you keep going on about reparations and handing over of troops for war crimes

Source books. They never got baby killer but they got a few token niggers to keep them quiet.

When the Outworlds Alliance was originally pitched to be basically absorbed they fought back and kept their independence. The assistance they got from the Star League meant not only facilities but huge caches of military equipment which writers have henceforth conviently forgotten about. Quite literally during the Succession Wars the Outworlds Alliance supposedly would have the equipment and means to take on the entire Successor States and Comstar if they decided to go around poking in their planets.

When thinking about them and going back over the books it made me realize how fucking dumb Battletech lore is and inconsistent at times, also the fact that SoyTech game was so retarded is there were in the region where there was least likely to be some Star League tech. Outworlds Alliance region woul have made more sense if they were going to force SLDF tech into the game.

Any toys left to the outworlds alliance by the SLDF would have been stolen or trashed by Fedrats and Dracs during the succession wars or sold off by corrupt officials to whoever had cash to pay for it, leaving the Outworlds Alliance with the distinction of having the by far shittiest and least well trained and armed ground forces in the periphery. Their sole claim to fame is that they have half way trained fighters for defending their planets instead.

Since the periphery uprising that started the Amaris Civil War most of the Outworlds territory has been rendered somewhere beteween uninhabbitable, a desolate wasteland and Mad Max territory More so than usual for the periphery anyway (Check the Outworlds Outback stuff in Era Report: 2750)

Pics are two maps of OA territory. One is from before the Amaris Civil war, the other is from after the 4th succession war.

And they didn't stop being spineless bitches who would just roll over when ever anyone else came by to take their shit until clan pidgeon came in and took over the place, without firing a single shot.

Also all of those positions post-release are purely managerial in nature unless they're already working on a different project which is always the case with dev teams this big since it's always good to have something in the oven at all times.

Bah, the board ate my post.


>Individual Initiative

Makes each unit roll for initiative independently. You can't choose the order you move your mechs in this way, but you won't be fucked over by metagaming around the initiative order. Also makes fights feel more organic. Downside is that it makes it harder to spot for indirect attacks and the like that require moving your mechs in a specific order.

>Frontload Initiative

Makes players with more units than their opponents move more units early in the initiative phase, taking away part of the meta advantage of being able to force your opponent to move first, when fielding tons of infantry or cheap tanks.

>Initiative Streak Compensation

Gives players a bonus to their next initiative roll when they lose the initiative.


>TacOps Starting Fires

>Woods have a chance to burn down

>Smoke Drift

Makes the battlefield far more dynamic as fire spreads or gets put out deliberately while smoke moves according to the wind creating mobile cover.


>Tacops ECCM

>Tacops Ghost Targets

This gives you more options for all those ECM suites you get in later era's and can make Ravens and the like very handy mobile cover for friends.

<Weapon tweaks

There's a ton of these, the ones listed here are just my personal preferences.

>Tacops Gauss Weapons

Lets you power down gauss rifles so they can't explode when crited.

>Tacops PPC Field Inhibitor Disengage.

Lets you turn off the safeties on your PPC's, removing the minimum range penalties. But those safeties are there for a reason…

>AC Damage increase

Extra damage for AC 2's and AC 5's to make them suck slightly less. Especially in later era's


>Rapid Fire Autocannons

Lets all your AC's and Light AC's fire like UAC's in return for increased chance of jams and ammo explosions.

>Unjam Ultra Autocannons

Lets UAC's unjam like RAC's can.

>Ultra Autocannon To-hit roll twice in Ultra Mode

Lets you roll to hit for each shot in ultra mode, instead of rolling on the cluster table. This makes ultra shots at low TN's less viable by can make an Annihilator IIC or a Hunchback IIC scary as fuck at close ranges with low TN's.

<General quality of life stuff

>Direct Blows

Rewards rolling far above TN's on attacks with slightly more damage

>Glancing Blows

Halves damage when rolling just barely high enough to hit. Makes those unlikely gauss rifle shots to the head a lot less deadly and combat more dynamic and less predictable.

>Through Armor Criticals Float

This one speaks for itself. Never leave home without it.

>Coolant Sink Failure

Introduces a risk of permanently degrading your mechs cooling system when overheating by more than 5 points. Really not fun in 3025 era games and can fuck up those perfectly heat balanced clan mechs.

>Tacops Taking Damage

Instead of getting a +1 penalty to a piloting roll for taking over 20 damage in one turn, you now get a +1 pentaly for every 20 points of damage to that roll. Those penalties can get pretty mean when a company of mechs focus you down.

>Tacops Engine Explotions

Who doesn't like big booms?

>Tacops Ammunition

No really, what kind of sick fuck doesn't like really big booms?

There's tons more rules like double blind, sprinting or giving assault mechs bonuses in melee combat and light mechs penalties, for maximum bullying.

Just try out some different rules and find out what works for your group.

NO ok its still not fixed and even when I buy a fresh one its still fucked. I wonder if its because I changed the techlevels mid game.

That's because both the Chimera and MRM's are shit. MRM's only work really on tabletop. Chimera also suffers as what >>126407 said in that it is a bully Mech that is only really feared by things smaller than it. Much like the Atlas.



Going to hate me for this but something came up at last minute which means I can't commit.

I also need to find the full version of this and webm it.

I thought the Atlas was supposed to be some sort of unstoppable Uber Mech?

f64b18  No.126957


Its not terrible but there are meaner mechs within the 100ton range and some below it.The atlas's base weaponry at least in the succession war era lets it cover most ranges while not really being a menace at any of them. Its more than enough to bitch slap lighter tonnage mechs. Still not a bad choice.

What >>126957 said.

The typical Atlas suffers from not really having that much in the way of effective firepower. I mean take the Atlas D. It's only really going to be able to bring an AC/20, 2 Medium Lasers and an SRM-6 to bare at close range which is just not actually that good enough for a 100 Tonner. It only really has an LRM-20 for ranged defense and that's not exactly good enough. Even the Atlas RS; which is arguably the better version despite the loss of the AC/20 to an AC/10 as well as a downgrade to an LRM-15 and SRM-4 that trade up for two Large Lasers gives it a more balanced range profile, struggles against Mechs like the Awesome, Stalker, Banshee 3S and even Zeus which all tend to eat it alive unless it can close distance and wear them down in a war of attrition.

From what I am seeing of their MWO game it is becoming a desperate attempt to shovel out as many cashgrabs as possible. I am not sure what the devs are thinking but it feels like they are banking on MW5 saving their MWO game.

dca146  No.128581


The Atlas isn't unstoppable because it has so much dakka, it's unstoppable because it has a fuckton of armor.

Combine that with what >>126957 said and you get a mech that dies to most assault mechs (outside special situations) since the Atlas has its firepower spread around all ranges, and its far too slow to outmaneuver the enemy.

It's going to beat practically all mediums and most heavys easily though. Competently piloted lights can also attrition it to death, but that's the case with most Assaults.

R.A.D. mercs. Mechwarriors.

2dc6d8  No.128942

If we are brainstorming for merc company names, here's a few of the more unique canon merc companies.


Buckaroo Banzai and his team of scientist/surgeon/rock band, and mech warriors.


Beer Brewers turned mercenaries. Or was it the other way around? Coincidently, they made their name as mercs, while hired by a pirate kingdom in the periphery.


A mercenary company that started as a reality tv project featuring a famous war correspondent running a mercenary company owned by the TV station. I think these guys are the merc company that specialised in providing mechs and pilots for movie studions filming war movies.


A highly pragmatic merc group who specialised in false flag operations and fighting unusually dirty.
