    I've seen something similar to this on Baradul's videos :)

    I prefer a light engine instead personally. 1800 dmg of salvos should be enough.

    MRMs are even more fun when you add jump jets and surprise poptart...

    With the armor it's worth using the XL. I always take massive damage and often times survive below 30% armor.

    I run with 2700 missiles and I can and do shoot dry on more than one occasion. Then again it's why I'm posting 1000K dmg matches so often.

    Unfortunately, the IV-Four only has a maximum engine of 290, which limits it to 84 KM / H like 65+ Tonner, but that allows a slightly adapted loadout. Offensively, 20% Missile Cooldown are extremely strong, while defensively powerful Armor Quirks are waiting for the player. Also relatively unique are - at least in my guide - the jump jets - which give him a lot of additional agility.

    LE 280 Version of Superman´s Build (no Armor on Arms):


    without JJ´s, full Armor on Arms to soak up some dmg (my personal favourite so far):

    I confess, my version makes some pretty wild changes:


    Putting a standard engine and medium pulse lasers means that you're never going to run out of weapons, and you can take incredible amounts of damage and keep shooting. It also gives you precision to remove components that have been stripped of armor by your MRMs. It's not going to pad the damage count the way MRM 60 does, but it should lead to being able to take down enemies faster.

    50% increased murm alpha at close range seems better for killing things imho.

    Running enough ammo --> never without weapons :)

    5/5,
    Given the Armor quirks, I chose to shave a little with the LE in there and not give up any speed in the XL to LE switch.

    5/5,
    LE version is THE build on the chassis. Incredibly sturdy and great mobility with a 60 damage alpha (which is pinpoint when facehugging someone, which you can do because of the previous characteristics).
