Contest - Scarabus by RogueBaron Contest - Scarabus by RogueBaron
This is another entry for Mecha-Master Frankenmech Contest 2011, [link]

The second design coming out of the War Bug Initiative is the Scarabus. It is a short-ranged fire support mech with 2 Streak SRM6, 2 Rocket launchers, and 2 medium pulse lasers, a nice complement for the Beetle. However, decent speed, the jump capability, and the Streak type missiles also allow the mech to slug it out with some of the best medium mechs around. CASE is installed on each ammo location to prevent critical damage by explosion. It has 11 tons of armor plus ECM Suite for defense.

A canonworthy design, though the name is an issue... [link]

you might want to change the engine to a 275 XL to make it comply with the design rules ;)

nice in fighter but I'd like to see one long range energy weapon for a bit of sniping and back up for when the SRMs run out.
RLs are nice en-mass but they are a one-shot weapon only.

I've recently found MRMs to be quite nasty and the +1 to-hit is generally still better than comparable numbers with SRMs at the same range. Don't get the specialty ammo though.

Thanks for the input. I'll keep that in mind.

Are all three of these custom 'mechs going to be in Road to Sedition?

I don't know. All 3 mechs were designed with a showdown vs. Rocher in mind (that's why I put the Uziel on the line up picture. That Uziel is NOT a coincidence ;P). But after spending a lot of time designing them, I feel like they worth a brand new story altogether. Road to Sedition 2 (or MFF 3), maybe? I don't know yet.

Whoa, another story for Callone VI? The poor planet is ever in turmoil! There's always the possibility to give Rocher a story set after IK4, where he uses his experience with the Tigers and Cavaliers to be a better Mechwarrior than ever. Just an idea.........

I don't know what I'm gonna do yet. I'll see how everything ends.
