Just a small BTW - A Mad Dog *is* a Vulture - Vulture is the IS name and Mad Dog is the Clan name.

Should be the other way around 'tho IMHO since the Timber Wolf is called a Mad Cat in the IS :P

But to me it will always be a Timber Wolf! (Warden Wolves FTW ;))

I just like the Clan names better...


And Mechs are SUPPOSED to look ugly damnit! They're Ranged Death on Legs!
You can keep them damned pretty-boy mechas in anime thankyouverymuch! :hopping: ;)

@Cyker

I know about the naming terms. :)

As for pretty-boy mechas, I still prefer BattleMechs over them. :D <---- evil grin

Yay! :D

IMHO, the only thing cooler than a BattleMech is a Warlord Titan ;)

IIRC there was some bollocks about the MC being a hybrid of a CATapult and something that accounted for the Mad bit. Can't be arsed trying to remember though.

I think you're confusing MechAssault with MechWarrior. I assure you that's not a good idea. (For that matter, confusing any MechWarrior 4 title with BattleTech isn't a good idea either. And don't get me started on Dorkage.)

MAD-series, the Marauder. It's one of the Unseen now since it was licensed from Harmony Gold. (Don't give me that Project Phoniex crap, if it doesn't look like a MAD-3R it's not a Marauder!)

Random trivia: Vulture is the only 'Mech with three names. It's also known as the Hagetaka. Same meaning as Vulture, just it's Japanese.

A Timberwolf is a cross between a Marauder and a Catapult?!

Freaky... I always just thought it was an 'evolved' Catapult... didn't realise the Marauder connection...
I mean, the arms look more like they're from a Hellbringer than a Marauder...

That would have been better... a Hell Cat :D

Weird 'tho... I always thought Marauders were 80T; Didn't realise there were different-weight variants...! I bow to your superior BattleTech knowledge :D
So what's the other differences between the Marauder IIC and the MAD?!

No, no, the real story is that someone thought that the Timber Wolf was something of a cross between the Catapult and the Marauder, hence the name Mad Cat, really, it was like that.



And don't get me started on Dorkage.)


Do not speak that cursed name! :nervous:

The original MAD-3R was, IIRC, 70 tons, 4,6,0 move (walks a 40-odd kph runs at 60-odd) , 2 PPC, 2 Medium Laser, 1 AC-5. The original 2750 Star League version (which graced the cover of TRO:2750) had ferrofiber armor as well, but I don't know what it did with the extra weight, if anything. There were a variety of House-specific variants which mainly somehow involved substituting a large laser for one or both PPCs, or the autocannon.

Check out the Deus Ex movies in the PS2 version. They're better than the PC ones IMO. (maybe except for the drunk JC-Helios)

What the heck was that?!

I have Deus Ex and the intro wasn't anything like that!

 
MW:  I was under the impression different clans (not IS vs clans) called the same clan mechs different names.  IE, a timber wolf is a timber wolf to clan wolf, but to clan smoke jaguar it's a mad cat.  A Kodiak is only a Kodiak to a member of Ghost Bear -- to Wolf, it's a dire wolf, and to the IS, it's a Daishiki.


Am I mistaken?

Hmm... Kodiak and Dire Wolf are two totally different 'mechs.
