Alright folks, the new RE here with some additional info on the Caeser.
Probably the most important thing about the Caeser, it is a blatant rip-off the Cataphract. The Fedcom manged to get their hands on at least one, more than likely a few Cappellan Cataphracts and went about rebuilding the mech so it didn’t look like a Cataphract.
Weighing in at 70 tons, it has a basic chassis, and an XL engine to cram on what at the time was a fairly impressive weapons suite that Wars128 talked about in the Podcast. The problem though, a 55-ton Griffin has more armor than this thing. Which, isn’t a hugely horrible thing, the mech ought to be used mostly for long ranged direct fire support, or barring that, a heavy mech to acompany medium mechs around.
Things to change. You don’t need 16 DHS. Ditch 2 of them and get rid of the MPL’s for say a Streak rack and some normal medium lasers with the extra tonnage going right back into armor. That would fix the only real problem with the mech that i can see.
Wars 128 mentioned making a IIC version of this mech. Don’t bother, the Summoner(Thor) Omnimech is the same size and you can do just about anything with it since it is an Omnimech.
That’s all for now folks, attached below is a minor mod to the Caeser-3R with the mods I mentioned earlier. Enjoy.
