Overview[edit | 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.


The -8V's armament consists of a LRM 15 for long range engagement, a PPC alongside a Large Laser for medium range combat, and a Small Laser for defense.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Good long and medium range firepower
  • Usually runs cool

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Relatively slow
