Overview[edit | edit source]

The CTF-4X is a third early model. It carries the maximum amount of armor that can be mounted on the chassis. Dual Autocannon 5s are supplied with ample amounts of ammunition. The Large Laser provides some backup for the autocannons in the unlikely chance they run dry and an LRM 5 provides some long range striking ability.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Dual AC 5s
  • Heavy Armor load
  • Good Firepower at all ranges

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Size restrictions for non-ballistic weapons.
  • Slow (speed like an Assault Mech)

Evaluation[edit | edit source]

Of the available Cataphracts the 4X is the slowest with a maximum top speed of only 59 km/h. Additionally, it carries a missile and energy hardpoint, but in its head and center torso respectively. That will limit the size of the weapons that can be mounted on those hard points. However, it does carry more ballistic slots than any other Cataphract design, all of them in its arms. This allows all ballistic weapons to be aimed together which makes quad Autocannon 2 and 5 builds quite effective.
