Panzyr was a pain in the arse as the APCs are ridiculously fast and armoured. It wasn't till I realised you could block the two gates with a standing mech that the mission turned out to be a doddle.

Captured Highlanders later on only have an AC 10, lostech and all that.

If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

I sacrificed the wounded because I was running all heavy / assault and had no way to make it there in the two turns after they dropped while also defending the main objective.

As for later highlanders not having gauss, that's fine.  Just slap an AC20 on them instead lol

Well I always liked the globals...

I have. That's what made the last mission such fun. Three AC-20+++ and a Gauss Rifle along with copious LRM 20+++ makes short work of must things. Add precision aim and the evil villainess was dead before she'd finished her monologuing.

This game is such a beslubbering tease lol.

"Our scans indicate a very heavy mech at this planet.  It's going to be a trap, but let's see what happens!"

Arrive at the primary mission objective, and it is an 80t PPC carrier. *Facepalm* lol

What I'm still trying to wrap my head around is how is something like that 80t, when it is about the size of a mech's foot and they are only 60t.

Happens a lot. Disgustingly easy to kill and then mop up the support lance(s). Think of it as easy money.

Then you need the assassination missions. Usually a heavy/assault mech involved with those once you've got some of your own. Border worlds have a few of them pop up. Hang around the Fed Suns and you'll snag a Victor easily enough. A "we don't have a claim on this world but the nobles have requested help" mission had a poorly supported King Crab begging to be kneecapped.
