Bowip 2057 - Div10 Compact (Updated)

Compact, Xhvy Ch., Hvy. Sus., 4 PR Tires, Large PP, Driver; VMG (15/reg) front, SD (10/reg) back, 10 oil/smoke dischargers; 40 pts plastic WG/WH; 15 pts Metal, 121 pts plastic Armor: F 5/20 B 4/25 R 3/25 L 3/25 T 0/11 U 0/15, HC 3, Top 110, Acc. 5, 4436 lbs. $9985.50

Design Notes - An update of this 2037 design. Even though I wanted to jettison the SD, I felt that to be a true 'update' I needed to retain the original weapon-systems and body type. Arbitrary, maybe, but the decision was colored by the realization that there must be thousands of Div10 compacts with a single VMG. Throw in a SD and it's not derivative (or plagiarism, heh) I was able to employ the principle that when you have more weight than cost available, go with metal armor.
