==Overview:==
The P-12 Rhino has severed the Landorf Protectorate well many centuries. The
relibility of the aircraft has earned it a reputation as the flying tank, both
for it's squat appearence and it's ability to take damage and still keep
going.

It is not uncommon to read battle reports that have Rhinos coming at near
groud level to provide covering firing and support to the CAAF troops as they
engage the enemey's ground forces. And these same reports also show that
scarifice s made by these same pilots as requests for the highist award the
CAAF can award it's fighting force. The Cross Galantry and Vigilance. Roughly
half to almost of all of these award to Rhino pilots have been posthumanously.


The Rhino's main role is to provide ground support. It's firepower is
tremndous and highly accruate. Coming low and slow, the Rhinos line up their
targets and unleash their cargos of death as HE and Cluster bombs rain down on
the enemy. Once this is done the Rhinos come back around for another pass,
this time unleashing a second brust of flying death as they engage anything
that survived the bombing run. With guns blazing the Rhino will do it's upmost
to take as many enemy units and mechs as it can before having to retire for
more ammo and fuel.

RAC/2s?
I'd do almost anything (short of using any *other* type of AC/2 ) to avoid them. If you drop an LRM-15 and some ammo, you can make them RAC/5s and give the other LRM-15 Artemis, more than making up for the firepower loss. Use the remaining space for DHS and upgrade the PPCs to ER (otherwise they have the same range as ERMLs...), and you're in business!

Close to an A-10 and almost up to an AC-130 gunship....I guess one could say it falls in between the two as far as firepower goes.

They are part of my alternate BT universe.

Took your suggestions and add them in as a variant for the P-12. Thanks for the suggestions.
