Overview[edit | edit source]

The CPLT-A1 is the original version of the catapult, created as a long range fire support platform. It lacks any short range defenses, such as the Medium Lasers of the CPLT-C1, but it has double the number of missile reloads and an additional two tons armor compared to -C variants.


Stock Loadout[edit | edit source]

Since the stock CPLT-A1 has no short ranged backup weapons, it is not recommended that you get very close to the front, because if they find you you are defenseless.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Jump Jets provide a level of agility usually absent from heavier 'Mechs.
  • High number of missile hardpoints allows for specialized missile focused builds.
  • When modified with equip SRMs for close combat (a "Splatcat" configuration) it becomes a formidable brawler.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • VERY ammo reliant and becomes useless when ammo runs out.
  • With all weapon hardpoints in the arms, destruction of the large (and relatively lightly armoured) arms results in the 'mech losing all ability to fight.

Online Mech Lab Tools[edit source]

This online Mech Lab tool will let you build any load outs without having to purchase the 'Mech or spend C-Bills first.
