Antiope 2037 - Div25 Luxury (Galaxy) (Obsolete)

Updated here.
Luxury, Xtra-Heavy Chassis, Heavy Suspension, Thundercat PP, 4 PR Tires, Driver & Gunner; VMG (20/HD-incen) in turret, 2 linked MFRPs front, 125 pts Plastic Armor: F 30 B 25 R 20 L 20 T 15 U 15; HC: 3, Acc. 10, 6600 lbs., $24,650.00

Design Notes - This is another of the original 2037 designs that I didn't upload back in 2057.  Possibly because of the feshtunkener T-cat engine - which was the ONLY option back in the day to get 10 acceleration at max. weight for a luxury - and because of the obsolete VMG ammo.  As far as I know, you can't mix High Density with Incendiary ammo (even though the military does that in the real world... another thing to revisit).

Name Notes - Original name from 2037: "Fastenweird," which was a companion design (because of the T-cat engine) to the original "Fastenpurty" (renamed Grapeshot).

The new name, Galaxy themed, is from a double asteroid, as it says in the Wiki:
"90 Antiope (/ænˈt.əp/ an-TY-ə-pee) is a double asteroid in the outer asteroid belt. It was discovered on October 1, 1866, by Robert Luther. In 2000 it was found to consist of two almost-equally-sized bodies orbiting each other. ... The number in 90 Antiope's name denotes that it was the 90th asteroid to be discovered. Its proper name comes from Greek mythology, though it is disputed as to whether this is Antiope the Amazon or Antiope the mother of Amphion and Zethus."
My blog is both fun and educational!
