    Jaeger JM6-A easiest heavy missile boat you can get. 4x LRM15 4tw. (No point "upgrading" to an Catapult)
    BINGO! been looking for a long range platform to replace my now woefully under performing K2 and i've got one of these in the bank VoV

    am i doin it rite ?
    Never put AMMO in CT.
    Put 2t ammo in each arm and remove 1 heatsink.
    And move the LT/RT heatsink to the legs. Bonus cooling when in water.

    Make sure LRM boat pilots got Multi shot since you will be spreading the love to KD as much as possible.
    Bulward because you will be standing still the whole time, dbl your armor <3
    And the Breaching Shot. If someones guarded, just use 1 LRM launcher to do full dmg. And spread the love around on others.

    You are right, of course. Too much armour and not enough missiles.
    Thanks

    I mean if it would have 10+ salvos with enough heat management to shoot nonstop you might go without any armor at all but otherwise it would be handy to have the enemies shoot at 4 mechs rather than 3.

    If i could strap 2 AC10 and some SRMs on it i'd go with that but not sure it can. Effort launching the game to check.

    You don't need to be heat neutral in a LRM boat.
    Their purpose if to kill pilots, you want do deal as little damage as possible.

    To be optimal, you need them to work in pairs.
    First one fires 3-4 launchers at a target.
    Next one fire 1 launcher at first target to knock down, and as many needed on the second.
    First one fires 1 launcher at second target and so on. If you whole lance got 1-2 LRM15's you will be able to
    knock down 3 mech per round with ease.

    You don't need much armor, keep them far behind your tanky mechs. Pref behind cover.
    If done right, they won't been seen. And only a Sensor Lock + Indirect fire can hit them.
    With Bulward active, you will take 2dmg per missile. That nothing to worry about.
    If one takes a pounding, pull it back so the second one can soak up some dmg while you kill off some pilots.

    got myself a king-krabby last night, pulled the LRM15 rack for a LRM 10 rack and 2 tons of AC20 ammo.

    mech is fucking terrifying tbh, but i still like my Royal Highlander more.

    also, anybody seen any 3 + medium lasers that aren't 3+acc +50% crit ?

    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Thought that was only me, huh.

    Also, I refit my krob to double AC/10, double LRM5 for the finishing knockdown blows, and a couple of MLas for the extra damage, then maxed out the armour and stuck on an anti-knockdown gyro and a cockpit mod.
    Shes not the ridiculous murdermachine the default fit is, but still plenty damage output and she can just stroll up the middle of the field giving no fucks.

    I use PPC + 3x LRM15's on my crabs.
    Used them as LRM boats for a long time, now I use them with my LRM boats.

    Fuck me, two nightmare decapitations missions in a row.
    Both with the exact OpFor. 6x Victors, 2x Zeus, 1x Atlas and 1x Jenner
    I was forced to withdraw from the first one, once the Victors got into JJ range and started DFA'ing my mechs.
    Facing 7 AC/20 is not that big deal, but when Mechs start dropping from the sky I get terrified.

    Last one I decided to just endure it. King Crab took a AC/20 to the face from one of the Victors.
    Zeus's keep flanking and got in several rear shots.

    I headshotted a victor last night and now it's my AC20 murderboat.
    Is it worth using a LegMod on it ? Totally forgot about DFA'ing after losing a mech trying it.
    Please don't teach me what to do with my pc.

    Only on medium/light. Takes too much weight and doesnt reduce dmg taken that much.
