Technically it's just Phelan Kell getting his Wolfhound blown up so far, and will be until sometime next year, but it does mean the Invasion is actually happening.

Yeah, I just looked at the timeline on Sarna.net and the Invasion doesn't actually happen until March of 3050, so we have a long time to wait.  It will be interesting to see how the super-powerful Clans are added in to such a PvP-centric game, though.  Co-op mode perhaps?

My personal vote is NPC Mad Cats appear at random and try to wipe out everyone. Because it will be hilariously rage inducing.

Don't forget that all the Clan mechs use DHS, so they'll have double the heat dissipation of the IS mechs.

Technically not all of them, and technically not all IS 'Mechs don't have them.

 
Any Clan 'Mech at the forefront of Operation Revival will be using CDHS.

Of course, doing a little research shows IS DHS were ready for mass-production back in 3041 thanks to NAIS so hopefully they'll be available for purchase by players when MWO releases.

whats the deal with DHS compared to normal HS, apart from the obvious? whats the catch?

The obvious is that they offer double the heat dissipation for the same tonnage.  The catch is that unless they're integrated into a 'Mech's fusion engine they take up three times the space of a regular heat sink, unless they're Clan Double Heat Sinks in which case they take up only two times the space of a regular heat sink.  That being said, a fusion engine automatically has ten heat sinks that take up no extra space or tonnage, so in the rules you can replace the singular heat sinks in your engine with DHS for no space penalty, doubling your base heat dissipation, although DHS aren't exactly cheap.  DHS and regular HS cannot be used together though, so a 'Mech will always be one or the other.

An engine can "hide" a number of heatsinks up to its engine rating divided by 25.  Any more than that have to be mounted at normal size.  This means that in some cases not all ten base heat sinks are hidden in the engine.

 
Is 10 the maximum number of hideable heat sinks or can a 350 engine hide 14 HS?

A 350 engine can hide 14 heatsinks.  However, the 4 heatsinks after 10 would cost four tons.

Additionally, if an Omnimech has a larger engine, but only mounts the basic ten heatsinks on its base chassis, it must allocate space for any heatsink above and beyond those fixed to the chassis.  If, for example, an Omnimech had a 300 rated engine, but only 10 heatsinks, adding two more heatsinks to a given configuration, those heatsinks would take up space, even though a 300 rated engine is nominally able to hide 12.

 
So a non-Omni 'Mech can have its engine save space for a number of heatsinks that are its rating divided by 25, but anything it hides above 10 heatsinks takes up one ton but no space per heatsink?

And OmniMechs have to spend tonnage and space for any heatsinks above anything their base chassis carries?

A 20 ton 'Mech with a 120 rated engine (Stinger, Wasp) that does not choose to mount additional heatsinks begins with the base 10 heatsinks has enough room in the engine (taking up no space) for four of them (engine rating 120/25 = 4.8, rounded down to 4).  The other six cost no extra tonnage, but must be allocated space outside of the engine.

A 100 ton 'Mech with a 300 rated engine (Atlas, King Crab) that chooses to mount additional heatsinks over the base 10 heatsinks spends one ton per additional heatsink.  With such an engine, the 'Mech is able to hide 12 heatsinks away in the engine (engine rating 300/25 = 12).  Despite paying the two tons to get to 12, no additional space is consumed by the heatsinks.  Mounting more than 12 heatsinks costs both tonnage and space.

A 55 ton Omnimech with a 330 rated engine (Stormcrow/Ryoken, Men Shen) that only chooses to mount the base 10 heatsinks on the base chassis spends no additional tonnage, and is able to conceal all 10 heatsinks (engine rating 330/25 = 13.2, rounded down to 13) with room for a few heatsinks to spare.  However, because the base chassis is fixed, adding any heatinks to that total in any configuration that doesn't change the base chassis (at which point it's no longer an Omni), any additional heatsinks added after that cost both tonnage and space.  Any heatsinks above those mounted on the base chassis cost tonnage and space regardless of whether the engine could conceal them if they were present on the base chassis.  If, before fixing the base chassis, the 'Mech had mounted all 13 "free" heatinks (which would still cost 3 additional tons), then they would take up no space.  However, the base chassis did not, and the extra heatsinks take up space.

For an Omnimech, it's a juggling act between whether to save crits or maximize payload space.

I hope that clears up any ambiguity on the subject.

 
Yep, that clears it up very well.
