New Year, more BOOM!

Fafnir announced. Three variants with ECM. Obviously the Annihilator was not bulky enough. IS NEEDS MORE FATTIES! :mrgreen:

Clear downside for Kurita-early-adopters: free Patterns are Davion- and Steiner-Camo :motz:

I know many people were waiting for the Fafnir. I remember them from MW4. Dual Heavy Gauss stock....

Gameplay-wise......325 max engine across the board. Makes it faster than Dire Wolf/Annihilator, but slower than King Crab or Atlas. Around Nightstar speed...

In terms of hardpoints, it's less focussed on a particular class like the Annihilator and will offer totally new builds for IS 100 ton mechs. Interesting mech. I'd preorder if I would play 100t mechs . more regularly. Hero hardpoints look interesting to me...

As this is a pure fedcom mech, they deserve their Steiner/Davion camos. Davion camo + parade colors from 36th looks pretty cool btw.
