The Awesome is designed to lay down long range covering fire. The design is great for softening up the enemy and laying down covering fire for advancing front line forces.

Three Particle Projection Cannons gives the 8Q long reaching, hard hitting, ammunition independent weapons. Using volley fire allows a pilot to lay down a constant barrage of man made lightning. A Small Laser provides for close ranged defense.

AWS-8R[edit source]

Two LRM 15s replace the three PPCs of the 8Q model. While the damage output of the LRMs is equal to the PPCs they replace, their range is longer and damage is spread making exploiting holes in armor much easier. A Large Laser provides medium range hitting power while a Small Laser is useful for close range defense.

AWS-8T[edit source]

The AWS-8T is quite similar to the 8R, but drops five heat sinks in favor of an additional Large Laser. This increases the Awesome's medium range hitting power for when the LRM racks go dry. This design carries only two tons of LRM ammunition.

Consumable Module Slots: 2


AWS-8V[edit source]

The AWS-8V is a compromise of the PPC heavy loadout of the 8Q and the missile heavy loadout of the 8R. Heat is not nearly as much of a concern as the former while ammunition is less of a concern than it is for the latter.

AWS-9M[edit source]

The AWS-9M is the latest model of the Awesome to be introduced. It takes advantage of a number of new technologies: an XL Engine cuts the weight of the Standard Engine in half, ER PPCs increase the range of the main weapons by 50% when compared to standard PPCs, Streak SRM 2s save on heat and ammunition, Pulse Lasers provide increased damage over standard Lasers, and Double Heat Sinks reduce waste heat almost one and a half times as fast as Standard Heat Sinks for the same overall weight. Additionally, the maximum speed is increased by 10 kph.

AWS-PB[edit source]

The AWS-PB is the Hero 'Mech model of the Awesome. With its flashy paint job and incredible speed, the Pretty Baby is the hot rod of the assault class. Even the -AWS-9M isn't as fast. It features relatively few hardpoints compared to other models though.
