    Fairly standard build. A good close in brawler. Very limited past 250-300 Meters in regards to the concentrated damage it can deliver. I link the TAG to the same Button as my SRMs. For half a ton, I feel the mitigation of the damage spread might be worth it (Once TAG for SRMs work)

    This is a super interesting idea. I mean when people think Awesome they think 3x PPC and a Small Laser but SRMs? Really? I'm gonna give it a try!

    You should have seen the Hammer M2a back in its prime:

    Couldn't soak damage well, but it could run almost as fast as a stock dragon and pack enough punch to kill a fastback in 1 shot, a Gat (gauss cat) in 2 shots and a brawler Atlas in 3-4. This one can do the same but it's quite a bit slower. :(

    Yeah before the XL Engine nerf I used to run a heavier engine. I loved the speed.

    One doubt here: does the TAG do anything for your SRMs, or do you carry it around to help the LRM boats in your team?

    TAG doesn't do anything for SRMs.

    i find restocking the artemis boats a tad expensive. nice build though. i have run something pretty close to it, in the past. i macro my tag to a toggle (press on/press off). with chain firing added on i would think it would be a choke point dominator. good stuff.

    really, it is too bad you don't have enough fire power in this build for my taste. and an XL engine. I can only rate 2-5 stars for your inclusion of Tag.
