Gladiator15 - Div15 Midsized
Mid-sized, Xhvy Ch., Hvy Sus., Large PP, 4 Solid Tires, Driver; VMG (20/reg) in turret, SS (10/reg) & SD (10/reg) back corners, linked; 10 pts. CA each around driver & PP, 228 pts Plastic Armor (F45 B45 R48 L48 T25 U17) Acc 5, Top 92.5, HC 3, 5714 lbs, $14,998
Metal Option - add incendiary ammo in VMG, explosive spikes in SD, hot smoke for SS, FP the CA, add 6 oil dischargers linked to 4 bumper triggers; Armor is now 40 pieces metal & 30 inner plastic (F,B,R,L: 10/0, T,U: 0/15), Top 90, 5760 lbs, $14,980.
Design Notes - It's 46 lbs light than maximum weight in order to get it under 15K. I hate wasting weight, but there's very little that costs little and weighs a lot with no space (except metal armor but you need more than a few pieces to be useful, but that led to the Option experiment.)
