Battletech - Hot Drop by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Hot Drop by Shimmering-Sword
A piece for :iconstridersstrikersteam: ~StridersStrikersTeam

A Battle Cobra and Hauptmann drop from an Overlord Dropship. Let's hope 3 jump jets can bring an assault mech down safely from this altitude :D
Fire those lasers!

Horrible design, especially the right one. Perfectly fine waste of good painting if you ask me. Unless you LURVE ugly and nonsensical to the max.

Right one is indeed ugly, left/far one could be better if it was the focus.

Battle Cobra fanworks are very few, and very far in between.
Well done with this one.

Nice! I am just having trouble wrapping my brain around a Hauptmann and Battle Cobra dropping from the same drop ship. I would love to know the back story behind that one!

Both are employed under the Strider's Strikers mercenary unit, which has Clan allies.

No specifics nailed down yet since it happens in unwritten future storyline. However the basics are here, though you might have already known: [link]

Thought it was a Nova Cat at first glance. Neat scene. Love the updates.

Jump Jets rock except when it leads to pop tarts. Great camo on the Haputman adn the battle coba looks mean. Nice.

Yeah, when I was still playing MW4 I remember the deal, Assault mech, ranged weapons, jumpjets. Those poor pilots that tried anyting else :(
Though sometimes I would get in a speed maxed hunchback and tickle Daishis to death with a LBX20 :la:

Oh, I've done that some times. But mostly I did stay in my Tin Can.
Some large ER-Lasers in the arms and a set of M-Pulse in the torso. Nice sharpshooter. Somehow I ended up annoying the hell outta my mates :)

Yeah it just makes the game to boring sometimes though the mountain maps are much better usually. On that desert map I used a loaded Jenner IIC with 3 CSTRK 6s and 2 ER Medium Lasers and just harassed the damn Kodiaks that keps lobbing LRMs. I ended up being the top player in a Light Mech. I felt so awesome I saved a screen shot of the points screen. Props to the guys who boldly go out in power armor as well, they can be really effective sometimes.

Awwww, I quite like the look of the Battle Cobra, but that said I do cling to the hope that the ComStar reverse engineered version would be more angular like the Black Hawk-KU rather than the rounded clan version.

True it is a bit over the top... :shrug:

Gundam was my first introduction to giant mechas on television from when I was younger so I have a sentimental loyalty to it... sort of like Star Wars. Grew up with it but never really grew out of it, always hoping for something newer and better.

How about you what was your first introduction to giant mechs -- was it something like Robotech? Or perhaps Transformers maybe?

I never had channels that played a lot of scifi shows when I was growing up so it wasn't until I found the Mechwarrior games on PC that I really got into them, which is why I do so much BT.
