Double Post

Posted by wars128 on January 28, 2008

This post will be both a Mech Monday Post and a Book review, which will come first.
I got the book Jihad Hot Spots 3072 over the weekend, and read it in one very long sitting. It is really neat to see how things in the older books, such as Heir to the Dragon, still affect things today. The celestial omnimechs were pretty cool, but besides that, there werent any good vehicles in the back.I also noticed for the first time that there are now 5 diffrent “eras” that products will appear under:
Star League
SuccessionWars
Clan Invasion
Civil War
I’ll have my thoughts on this up at a later time. Overall, if you want to stay up to date, you need to get this book. Also, if you want the stats for the Celestials, then get this book. Otherwise, feel free to skip it, but i’d recomend you not doing that.

Todays mech monday post is on the effectiveness of extremly heavy scouts, such as the Charger. Even in level two, its armament and armor can be matched elsewhere for a much lower cost and tonnage. Its a nice variation, but its just not feasable enough in my opinion, as much as I want it to be.
