Rewording[edit]

Excerpt one
. . . The 'Mech carries an Irian Weapons Works V7 LRM 15 launcher which gives it long rangecapabilities.

Nothing wrong there, accurate to my knowledge.

Excerpt two
This is backed up by [a]… LB-X Autocannon/10 and a[n]… ER Large Laser which give the 'Mechlong-range punch.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't a LB-X AC/10 a medium range(ish) weapon? How does it work with the LRM and the ER LL to give the 'Mech a 'long-range punch'?

Excerpt three
The 'Mech carries a… Large Pulse Laser which allows the 'Mech to engage… at the edge of the medium to long-range envelope.

Isn't 'around here' where the LB-X AC/10 should be mentioned?

Hi Xoid, I noticed that there was no response to this so thought I would answer a couple of questions.
The LB-X AC/10 has the same range as a standard PPC, considered to be a long range weapon. It's range brackets are 1-6, 7-12, 13-18. This is only 1 hex shorter than the ER Large Laser.
The Large Pulse Laser, on the other hand, has a much shorter range with bands of 1-3, 4-7, 8-10. This is marginally langer than a medium laser, so I would classify this as a medium to short range weapon.
Hope this clears a couple of things up and keep questioning things. It's the best way to make these articles better. :) --Jimmy the Tulip 14:46, 20 November 2006 (CST)
Really? o_0 (Just goes to show; don't trust the video games.) Thanks for the help Jimmy. --Xoid 15:50, 20 November 2006 (CST)
