Overview[edit | edit source]

The COM-3A compares directly to the Commando COM-1D in terms of Hardpoints. Unlike the -1D though, the hardpoints of the -3A are more spread out. The energy hardpoints are divided between the two arms rather than housed in one, and the missile points are spread out over two locations rather than crowded into the limited space of the center torso.


Stock Loadout[edit | edit source]

The -3A increases the short range missile loadout of the -2D which results in a very dangerous quick strike 'Mech. A Medium Laser and Flamer add to the short range punch of this Commando. The -3A hits harder than other stock Commandos, but has light armor. Only one ton of ammo is carried for the two SRM racks, enough for 8 full shots each. Once gone, the "-3A's" damage potential is greatly reduced. Saving the SRM shots for targeting areas with low or no armor protecting internal structure would maximize their usefulness.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

Like all Commandos, the -3A is capable of impressive Speed and maneuverability. The energy weapons have a minimum firing arc of 120° before upgrades.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

The -3A lacks any noticeable flaws, but lacks the Commando COM-2D's ability to mount the extremely useful ECM.

Design[edit | edit source]

Both missile hardpoints support up to 10 tubes.
