Overview[edit | edit source]

The -3C departs from the normal close range loadout common to most other Cicada models in favor of adding a long range PPC. Two Machine Guns provide close range defense.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • Hard-hitting PPC.
  • Can engage at longer distances.
  • Good Speed.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • The PPC must be replaced with an ER PPC to make use of the excellent quirks.
  • Light Armor.
  • No arm mounted Weapons, less manuverable.
  • Inside the range of the PPC, the only weapons are a pair of machine guns.

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.
