Overview[edit | edit source]

The CN9-A carries a loadout of weapons that does increasing damage as it closes. The LRM 10 gives it long range reach and the AC/10 & Medium Lasers give it a good punch at medium and close range. Its good balance of armor, firepower, and speed make an excellent general purpose Medium mech.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

The CN9-A spreads its hardpoints across several locations, mean it is less likely be rendered harmless by one section being destroyed. Compared to other Centurion models, it has the greatest number of hardpoint locations, which includes 3 Missile Hardpoints.

  • The top two missile hardpoints will allow up to 20 tubes. The third (bottom) missile hardpoint will allow up to 15 tubes.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

The two energy hardpoints of the center torso must share only two available critical spaces, which limits the types and number of energy weapons that can be installed on the CN9-A.

The even distribution of hardpoint types and locations will require a diverse loadout. While not in itself a weakness, it precludes the possibility to specialize in one or two weapon types.
