Well, I'd envisioned "back" weapons mounting like the cannons on the Liger Zero Panzer [slightly offset to the sides], so they wouldn't get in the way of other stuff.


I guess that could work, but it would be awkward as heck with the existing disruptors and the VLS. The chassis design just doesn't offer many weapon slots. Quirks of being a high-speed recon/ewar config, really. There's probably a chassis variant out there that's firepower-oriented or something though.

Oh yeah, i'd forgotten about the VLS for a moment there, guess you could go without back weapons given your already almost OP loadout.

Post Re: Roll To Mech: Khorosho
While waiting for the techs to finish upgrades Harald tinks out loud "I think we should avoid the camp on the hill, for now, and clear up the surrounding ones. Maybe go for B1?" Being much more vocal Irvine calls out ot the others "Let's hit B1. The elevation should give us a better view of the camps further to the west, and heading straight for A6 would put us in the lower-ground between B1 and B2. That ain't gonna be fun in the lower ground if they decide to go for an ambush - but if we hit B1, any reinforcements will have to come up the hill; that gives us the advantage." to which Andrew replies "Yeah, I'm all for that."
On reaching B1 you get a good view of the enemies that are there, and see that the "camp" is actually a ruined Old-World fort... and some of the defenses are still operational.
Among the enemies you spot a IWM03 Hammer an all around superior version of the Club, you also notice a few of them have single shot Bazookas and spare weapons mounted on storage carousels.

Move in closer, but coordinate remaining out of enemy visual range(if that is the case in the first place). Lead the charge if we attack and fire both mortars at dodo 2.

Prepare for barrage, gents.


I'm gonna dump Artillery Cannon and Gatling Gun and Autocannon fire on them. Hopefully it'll hit multiple enemies. With how many are grouped together at the front entrance, it's likely.

Harald suggests "I should probably take a position up front, since I've got the toughest armour." but given his slow speed that might not be what will happen. The Reavers seem to have not noticed you yet, their 1st generation sensors probably have trouble cutting through the Nanite pollution.

Bracing yourself you set your targeting computer to lock your artillery onto one of the egrets while charging up your railgun.

You move yourself up to be as close as you think you can get without being detected.

Figuring that your laser is well within range as-is you take a moment to calm down and focus yourself ready for combat.

Firing up your electronics suite you give the turrets on the base a scan and ready yourself to hack into them, but unfortunately your scan has them show up as the manned variant not the automated one. Seeing how hacking their turrets is a no-go you instead listen in on their communications in order to try and make out if they have spotted you yet, you don't understand the language, but the relatively infrequent and calm conversations you hear make it seem like they are unaware of you.

Manned turrets, huh? Not ideal. But human operators can make stupid mistakes, so there's that, at least.

> If possible, estimate and mark their view range. If not, provide targeting data for the others. If that's out of the question, move closer and prepare to fire upon the nearest turret with a missile barrage, synchronized with whoever else opens up.

Sadly, weaponizing the nanite-pollution via hacking is probably out of the question. If not, that could be good for a laugh too.

"I say we sow some chaos with long range fire while Andrew, Harald and I move in through the hole in the wall at the north, then sweep through the camp out of turret line of sight. Just need the two frontal ones down for that tactic to work."
Relay this plan, if accepted fire mortars for effect and move to engage Dodo 1, preferably while taunting said enemy.

If they DO fire, let loose with artillery cannons, autocannon, and minigun on my locked on target and the surrounding mechs.
