Design Notes -This is an update of this 2037 design:
Luxury, Xtra-Heavy Chassis, Heavy Suspension, Super PP, 4 Solid Tires, Driver, VMG in turret, 2 linked RL front, HDSS back, HDFOJ back, HRTC, 170 pts Plastic Armor: F 40 B 30 R 30 L 30 T 20 U 20;  HC: 3, Acc. 5, 6590 lbs. (max 6600), $25,000.00

Back in the day, if I was $1000 over in a weight class, instead of tweaking the design, I just added a Hi-Res computer and accepted going up a class.  The options were seriously limited.  In any case, this design is seriously flawed, as seen by the mixing of weapons (which I kept in this upgrade, given the arbitrary rules I set for myself), as well as the combo of a HDSS with a HDFOJ (because FOJs create smoke clouds automatically!).   I also left off 1 pt armor to keep it under 25K.

In the update I took out the HDSS because it's unnecessary given the HDFOJ (which I did keep).  I used the found space for component armor and IFE (not enough space for sloping).  In trying to keep the Div25 price, I reduced the HRTC to a HRSWC (those stupid rocket launchers), and I needed to eschew my normal laser-reactive web defense system.

Name Notes -  It's nonsense; see the original.
