I need some advice. Being used to playing Feddies--using VERY Lyran tactics--I need some assistance in designing some Drac and Cappie lances. Here are what I have come up with, but feel free to remove or add as necessary to make a more "Cappie" or "Drac" like unit.

I. CCAF Warrior House Ma-Tsu Kai
A. Awesome
B. Guillotine
C. Grasshopper
D. Vindicator/Black Jack/Trebuchet

II. DCMS 2nd Night Stalkers
A. Grim Reaper
B. Kintaro
C. Exterminator
D. ???

I would add an omni to the mix for the Dracs. maybe a Blackjack or a Blackhawk KU.

What era are you looking to make these lances for? That would help to know for picking an appropriate 'mech.

Regarding your Capellan lance, I wouldn't want to group any of the three choices given with the Awesome, Guillotine and Grasshopper... all of them are a bit underweight for a lance like that. If I had to make a choice, I'd go with the Trebuchet; it would be hanging back to provide long range cover while the other three advanced.

Well jb, what would you throw in in the place of the listed choices?

Essentially, I am looking at creating a heavier strike force for the Cappies.

For the Dracs, I am looking to create some kind of raiding force, though with a little bit of weight (Exterminator, Lancelot, Grad Dragon) with 3039 B to 3067 C or D tech.

If you want a truly Capellan feel to the lance, and something in a similar weight class, I'd toss a Cataphract in there.

For the cappies, I would ditch the Guillitone for a Cataphract and go with a heavy missile boat like an Archer or a Longbow. One thing you got to remember is in the early days before the clans every house had at least some of the 3025 mechs.

I would suggest taking something lighter for both lances. You'll need a scout element, and if your planning on using a C3 network on your Drac lance, a faster unit is a good thing to have.

Hey there Raven Hawk.

Postby Dark Sun Drakon » Fri May 14, 2010 4:00 am

Ah yes,I am totally down with the Draconise Combine and the Capellan Confederation.
The House of Davion had no right attacking the home worlds of the House of Liao.
We used the Sorenson's Sabers and other Rasalhague Republic mercenary
my Battle Mech company called the Dark Sun Drakon Sabers .
We liberated the worlds of the House of Davion and exposed
the trickery of the Fox and made the Wolfs Dragoons open their eyes
that they were being manipulated .We fought against the Grey Death Legion
and the Hansens Rough Riders defending Tikograd.
Greetings to those that favor the Draonise Combine House.
In do time I will be putting pictures of my Battle tech unit
and my miniature styro foam hexagonal Battle tech dioramas
on to this website soon. Later !
