So: The first one doesn't strictly fit on a medium bridge (40 ton limit), but I traded a few points of armor for a MP? Rolling Eyes And don't forget the extra IS points

I think it was inspired to try out the 'Mech Mortar for the first time, but allowing a second flavor of ammo for only a quarter-ton is about like the 41-ton model.

All over-top a debate 'bout using hovers for APCs: Go to it, guys! Razz
