Overview[edit | 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.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Four Missile Hardpoints

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Only one Module Slot
