    If you want to detect shutdown mechs, try this version with a cAP.

    Seeing as how CAP doesn't provide you with a counter-ECM if you have ECM equipped, I'd take CAP off of this one. That's an extra ton that can go to ammo or heat sinks.

    I prefer myself to use both a probe and ECM on this one; I find that the boost to sensor range, targeting data speeds (edit* what I thought was also lock on time), as well as detecting shut down enemy mechs is truly vital for this mech considering it utilizes streaks.

    Okay, I can see the shut down Mechs part.

    Target info gathering =/= lock on time. As streaks are random in where they hit, knowing what is cored is of little benefit to Streaks, IMHO.

    Sensor range is unimportant when your weapons have a 360m range.

    As I said, though, I can agree with your ability to see and lock onto shut down Mechs. It's not been a priority on my ECM LRM mechs because then I use my backup lasers, but it makes sense for SSRMs.

    I've learned something today, skribs. Thank You. I will update this thread accordingly.

    Are there any ways to speed up lock on time for streaks or LRMS?

    I'm sorry, I said the wrong word at first. My question is: is there any way to speed up or decrease lock on time for streaks or LRMs so you can shoot your targets quicker?
    I'm looking for streak/LRM lock, not decay. It seems this isn't possible, currently as of now.

    Target Decay helps retain target so you can stay locked on when LOS breaks.

    As far as I know its the only thing that helps you lock on better with SSRMs.

    Sensor range seems nice for LRMs but you'll have a hard time hitting at 800+ meters anyway.

    The stats for Targeting computers says "targeting time boost" but the text says "target data." So I'm not sure which it actually helps with.
