    This mech was originally posted by Blagg Zear and this video is being done by IanSane.

    RECOMMENDED ROLE: Middleweight Brawler / Long Range Support
    TOTAL PRICE: 6,584,365 cbills (including XL engine and all weapons/ammo) + 4875 MC
    DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Advanced Piloting and Gunnery skills required

    STRENGTHS:
    • Very quick for a Firebrand with an 89.1 max speed due to the XL engine
    • Both your primary and secondary weapon systems are energy based. No ammo for them
    • Has a tertiary weapon system in the form of the 2x MG which allow you to crit seek at close range
    • Has an AMS system which helps in regards to LRM5 troll boats (as of date of post)
    • 384 points of armor is a decent amount! Certainly helps soak the damage
    • Mix of ranges between long, medium and medium/short
    DRAWBACKS:
    • Requires advanced piloting and gunnery skills due to low heat efficiency
    • XL engine makes you vulnerable to torso kills
    • Expensive mech as it requires MC and a fairly oddly rated XL engine
    • Machine Gun can feel like tits on a bull unless close range brawling

    great video again.. on hot maps you need some skills at heat/weapon-management. On "normal" maps this build shows its real potential. Get Alpine and you can brawl like a Monster! Alpha Alpha Alpha!!! :cool:
